Re: Beware: Furuno 1815 Radar Power Hog When Off

I hadn't thought about it in the sailing context, but it's an issue with most modern electronics - dealt with it when I was doing work related to building management.

Re: Understanding outboard theft vs. dinghy theft

Or that in general Jammer over-analyzes everything.

Jammer, my friend, you need to spend more time on the boat and less time worrying about it. :biggrin:

Re: CHS Charts on Mobile Devices

Shawanaga, thanks for the long-winded first post - good comments. And welcome.

Re: CHS Charts on Mobile Devices

Keep the ideas coming - I am also considering alternatives now that iNavX stopped supporting CHS.

My beef with the Navionics charts is that they provide approximately zero on-shore and related...

Re: Solenoid valves

I would worry about idea #3. It would be set up to shut off the water if no power is applied, which suggests that in the event of a loss of power or other failure you would automatically cut off...

Re: Is this the right forum for a canadian sailboat owner

IMO this is the right forum for any sailboat owner.

There are a few québécois who pop up from time to time, and quite a few Great Lakes sailors. You should find people with common interests.

Re: Wind instrument as help to inexperienced crew?

Re: Sailing from Finistère: 6,700 years of European sailing history preserved in ston

But to get back to the original post, this is a very interesting analysis. We know those folks were serious sailors but it may go back farther than we thought.

Re: Sailing from Finistère: 6,700 years of European sailing history preserved in ston

Okay, if it was named by the Romans I’ll give it precedence.

But the folks in Brittany make good puns out of it, at least. In honour of the geographic position they have a local beer named...

Wouldn’t surprise me if there’s one in Spain - it’s the kind of name that tends to get repeated, but the one I’ve visited is definitely in France.
