    Minggat, you mentioned you have the mini U/W drones for sale. What are the details please.

    Thanks for the info Minggat. So you are full time cruising with composting? BTW. One of my favorite boats, the I- 36. And you have given her some exersize. Great.

    Minggat, interested in your observations re: inflatable dinghy. The research I have read is to keep the roll up inflatable below decks to save it from the sun. You are suggesting to keep it inflated for fear of cracking seams. Do I have your opinion correct? If so is this the best way then to care for my dinghy when on route? Inflated and on deck strapped.

    I guess you're still in Hawaii. What's up? Are you ever going to get to Fiji? Hope all is well. You should start moving before your upper arms get too flabby and begin to interfere with air flow over your sails. LOL!!!

    I would appreciate instructions or pictures, of how you added the additional flotation to the Walker Bay 8.

    You have way too much time on your hands, Don. Nice pic of Minggat at anchor. Looks like it was taken in Puerto Escondido at the north window. I hope you don't spend much time looking at this pic; the boat looks really nice and not beat up with an off-shore crossing. Hope your projects are coming along and you're closer to getting over to Indonesia and your lovely wife!

    hi, do you still have info over your ""8 stowaway fenders -4 down each side, inside of mesh tubes.""
    I just bought a dinghy and your idea seems to be the cheapest way to do it.

    Hello Minggat,
    We have a Walker Bay 8 without the rid. You made a tube of Phifertex mesh. I think it's a good solution. How did you fix the mesh to the boat and what is the size of the stow away fenders you used?

    Thanks Minggat, I looked all over and could not find any information on the islander 36, looks like the factory may have set the drain tube when the lower floor section was fitted to hull, I will make sure the shower water can flow from under the mast and in-to the bilge thanks

    Hi Minggat,

    Honestly, it's often a bit of irony... I usually use it when someone has asked a question that's pretty clearly a 'go Google it' sort of thing... but they were too lazy to do it them selves and threw the question up on the board.

    Sometimes it's a case of someone hasn't been able to figure out a good search query and I run until I find one and then post it. Often the material isn't something I want to cut and paste to the board so the *let me Google that for you* makes it easy for anyone to go look!
