    You were recommended for crewing. Do you have any day or small trips coming up for a newbie, beginner woman crewer?

    Gord: Do you remember a long time poster, a Canadian, don't remember his name, who was building a trawler in his back yard. I can't find his thread. Curious as to his status

    Gord,

    Thanks so much.
    Heres the skinny:
    Lofrans Tigris 1500W windlass.
    12 VDC
    Assuming ~60 feet total wire run for my 37’ Crealock to windlass and back to battery
    A=P/V = 1500W/12.5V = 120 amps
    10% permitted drop
    VD=10% x 12.5 = 1.25V
    CM=(10.75 x 120A x 60 ft)/1.25V
    = 77,400/1.25 = 61,920 CM
    Per table CM for 2 AWG is 66,369 which is larger than 61,920 (by almost 10%!)
    So I hope for 2 AWG

    I show below some picture of my system which will be:
    1. Windlass
    2. Solenoid control box
    3. Wire
    4. Circuit breaker
    5. Battery
    6. Remote control


    Your email doesnt work.

    Dear Gord, hello from geoleo. Do you consider yourself to be a "rustic character"? Thanks

    Gord thank you for the article. It is missing page 110. Any chance you could send it?

    Hey Gord,


    You always seem to have all the answers so... I am asking you:


    I am a Sea Scout leader and we just last year had someone donate a 1976 Westsail 32 and we have a problem... (Of course... It is a boat)


    The boat has a new bottom job and it is keeping the growth at bay but, the PO looks like he did not coat or treat the prop and this poses problems with maneuvering and motoring under power.


    The prop appears to be possibly the original bronze prop.


    I would like to know what I can do to at least slow down the growth to match the once a month hull cleaning. Thank you.


    Sincerely,


    Marc Holtzberg

    Hi Gord,

    No I did not coin the word Covidiot. A mayor in Hawaii used it to describe three mainlanders that were breaking the stay at home regulations and which were arrested and deported back to their States. His use of the word and the need to enforce the emergency orders publicized the new word, but he also indicated that he did not coin the term but found it quite exact and appropriate. Take care.

    So Gord, regarding the NY Times article. Which of the subjects most caught your interest. Surfaces, Sneezes, or Sex? I find your posts to be very informative and well reasoned.
