Re: Staying with boat in Oriental, NC

Missed this thread, but yea Hurricane is by far the best for live aboard DIY types.
They aren't a full service yard like Zimmerman (formerly Deaton) Sailcraft and Wayfarers, but much more laid back...

Re: Finding Real Estate With Dockage

Advantage of realtor is it seems to update to pending and sold way quicker. Disadvantage is that it often won't show a listing for a day or two after Zillow. You kind of have to use lots of...

Re: Best chill yacht clubs (or marinas)

from my very short experience, the marinas with the fancy "real" restaurants weren't as laid back. They also tend to have "existing" friends sitting together at tables etc. (Granted my experience...

Re: Finding Real Estate With Dockage

Casually looking as well, and yea, the apps seem to stink for this. What I've found is look in areas I "like" then take off all the filters, and view as "map view" and kind of guess if they are on...

Re: sailing and towing larger tender/center console

Re: First boat

One thing I learned, even with a "better" boat than I originally though... IF you plan that it will be 10k to put in, it's gonna be 20 and a LOT of time.
Boat stuff gets pricey real fast. That...

So currently my boat has 4 12v agm in 2 banks. 2 of them are new, 2 are "ok"

I'm not a real big fan of how it's wired, but it "works" for now with the 2 banks, selector inside etc. Oddly, the...

Re: Docking cameras

I'm really tempted to add one of the overpriced garmin cameras on the top of the mast. I thought about the wifi type camera then view on cell phone, but almost all of those have a VERY noticeable...

Re: transducer forward of keel will it get trashed?

Nice.
This is our first big boat, so didn't really think about the obvious solution of just paint a mark like "no lift" to keep it safe.
Whether I get that one or just a second device I don't like...

Re: transducer forward of keel will it get trashed?

transducer forward of keel will it get trashed?

I've got a Hans Christian 33t.
Instead of bouncing off of sandbars to find them, I'd like to upgrade to a MUCH better sonar setup.
Right now all she has is a depth finder. I was looking at the...

Re: Buying a Boat, no broker - Put these steps in order please

I'd have the insurance ready to go at payment/bill of sale.
Good chance as soon as that happens PO is dropping insurance and marina might need your coverage immediately etc.

West Marine c310 which motor

it's the compact one that folds up. I wanted electric, but I just don't think they are there yet for the pricepoint. I don't want to try to deal with 2 giant batteries and a wire going over to the...

Re: WTB:Used Alpha marinr autopilor

alphamarine 3000 with hydraulic ram upgrade to what?

ok, i'm starting to admit defeat cause well, it's an old system and I don't think trying to throw money at it is worth it.

Re: Dinghy Dreams Followers

I think the fact that this went this far out into insane land shows why the owner was concerned. We have no financial ties or concerns and people are this worked up?

Re: ICW info

Tons of them all over. Are you going ICW the whole way? or kicking out to ocean for portions? Watch sonar, don't necessarily trust charts and a lot of the "anchorage" advices in Active Captain...
