Yanmar 3gm 30f advice needed.

Oh wise Yoda's thank you for the advice. I ended up taking the exhaust off the block and after a hit or two for myself soaked it in acid. Put it back on and she's purring like a kitten at 2500 rpm. ...

Re: Who the Hell Turned Out the Anchor Lights in the USVI?

Now that sounds like a cold cheap no sleep kind of port. I'm sure Jimmy Buffett never wrote about it and I only like to live Buffett songs. :)

Who the Hell Turned Out the Anchor Lights in the USVI?

I'm sitting in Cruz bay at this very moment watching a pleasure craft anchored in the middle of the commercial lane but it does have a light on so it's all good with me. I give up. To each his own...

Re: Who the Hell Turned Out the Anchor Lights in the USVI?

Again it was about anchor lights and the fact that you are to rude to turn them on because a manual said you didn't have to! And I do find it funny that you speak of 45' mast lights and you rented a...

Who the Hell Turned Out the Anchor Lights in the USVI?

We have camels on board. But also Marlboro ..... Do I need to report that to? A blackout by DHS makes way more sense then the manual of the 45 voyager talking about a 45' mast and anchor light on a...

Well there you have it folks. The reason to not turn of your anchor lights is because the manual for the Voyager 45 says you don't have to!!!! Are you kidding me Vern??? Spoken like a true twin...

Re: Who the Hell Turned Out the Anchor Lights in the USVI?

Re: Who the Hell Turned Out the Anchor Lights in the USVI?

Please do pass on my thoughts my friend. But one quick question if you please. How does one circumnavigate from the dock? Is that like driving your GPS all the way around. I'm really interested in...

Re: who the hell turned out the anchor lights in the USVI?

Mexico is a mess and I try to stay out of there.

I think that anchor lights are not being taught as a safety issue or a respect of other sailors issue. It is truly sad!

Re: St Vincent and grenadines yellow flag

Steady lads. I don't take anything personal here. And I don't care what piece of cloth, dirty draws or crate paper you run up your mast. I was given information and passed it on. Then a legal debate...

who the hell turned out the anchor lights in the USVI?

Re: who the hell turned out the anchor lights in the USVI?

Ok. But it's a great way to get in a game of bummer boats! I'm not sure what is "the law" on this but I was raised to have a light on when you where not on the dock at night! Out of respect for the...
