Re: Blue Water Monohulls Under 32ft

All I know about James Baldwin is what I've seen in his atomvoyages YouTube channel, but it looks like his workmanship is top-notch.

Re: Youtube liveaboard stars?

Yes, she's quite the talented musician. I really like that cut in the intro where she spliced 5 versions of herself playing and singing a different part. Quite good!!

Re: Wiring batteries in parallel

Please forgive a newbie question:

If a set of batteries is not in "parallel", then what is it?

Why do they need to be in parallel?

Re: Catalina 315 Question

Hi Full,

I too am shopping for my first boat. I got real close a couple of times... Went to have a look with money in my pocket. Right now I'm looking for an older 22'-25' boat as a lake-worthy...

Re: How to make offer for newbie, first ever boat viewing

Nice-looking boat! Especially for the price. Looks like she's been well-maintained and all the fundamentals appear to be sound. I'm jealous.

Re: Sail condition - How do you tell?

Thanks JBsurfin. On second look she was really a mess. I think it would take several thousand to get her up to scratch, and I don't really want that big a project. I'm holding out for a solid boat...

Re: Sail condition - How do you tell?
