Re: Engine Sizing and Fuel Consumption

My unscientific mind led me to repower my Douglas 32 (full keel, similar specs to the Contessa 32) with a Beta Marine 25. Just finished the installation last week, and I don't think I would want...

Re: Wet Steel Punchings Ballast

I have no idea what the best way to fix this is, but I just wanted to give you some encouragement. Seems every job I do on my boat is the same "how do I deal with that" - eventually you'll come up...

Re: Alberg 35 parts in Florida

Sounds sad...

That said, we can probably keep bits of her sailing for some time. Interested in windlass, and a boom if over 14'.

Fuel Funnel Screens Removing Water?

I ran my new diesel today for the first time, and had to lug a can of diesel down to the boat. I used a funnel with the built in screen, which I understand is supposed to remove any water. Direct...

Re: Paragon SAOV Transmission Rebuild or Replace?

Had the same engine and trans - both with problems which added up to my decision to repower this year. Feedback I got on the paragon was not good - I hope you have good luck with yours.

Re: Can you Buy Safety

Great advice. To the subject of the post, I think you can "buy" safety, but the currency is generally your time. Taking the time to learn weather, navigation, your boats systems, first aid, etc are...

Re: Travel to Cuba?

Have not sailed there but have visited twice. People are very nice, food was good although different from north american mainland fare. I felt very safe there as well.

Re: Any Foragers Out There?

They're called fiddleheads, and are the juvenile version of a fern. Collecting them is a bit of a cottage industry in the Canadian maritimes.

Re: Do you pack ''HEAT'' while you sail?

Let me rephrase my response. Based on the number of threads I have read on the topic, there seems to be more negatives than positives. I have no interest in US gun laws, nor in curtailing your...

Re: Do you pack ''HEAT'' while you sail?

My mother always taught me there are four subjects not to discuss in polite company:

1. Sex
2. Politics
3. Carrying weapons on board a cruising boat
4. Religion.

Re: Canadian cruisers: licence or registration?

Re: Canadian cruisers: licence or registration?

There is much more to obtaining registration than a unique name. You will need bill of sale from every owner in the chain until you bought the boat. Benefits of a registered vessel in Canada:
