Re: Bilge pumps

Not sure how to clean/service one of these. They seem to be pretty much all one piece except for the blue screen on the bottom.

Bilge Pumps

I have Rule 500 and 800 pumps in my bilge with a float switch, both about 3 years old. The whole system seems to have gone all at once. The float switch doesn't respond at all and the motors run...

Re: Blown galley sink hose

Spent most of the day running around trying to find the pieces and putting it all together, but at the end of the day, I have a water tight system again. Thanks for all of the advice, everyone! ...

Re: Blown galley sink hose

That Quest fitting looks exactly like what I have. Thanks. Now I have a name for it. I'll be heading out to see about a replacement today. Thanks.

As to the "why", I'm sure those hoses are...

Blown galley sink hose

I thought that there was a ferry that ran to Marsh Harbor from G. Turtle? Does it only go to Treasure?

Thanks for the feedback, all! My 17yo son will love the idea of caves. Sounds like it's worth a stop.

Little Harbor, Abaco

Planning on crossing to Abaco next month. Eventually, I'll be going out of the Little Harbor cut to head to Andros. Last time, we just anchored behind Lynyard Cay before making the crossing. I'm...

Re: iPad

What do you mean by "heat?" Does it tend to overheat or just not handle hot conditions well (an issue on a boat here in Florida)?

Re: iPad

Thanks for all of the input. I didn't know you needed the 3G to use GPS. Part of the reason I am looking at getting something else is that my Mac is so old it won't run the latest FlashPlayer. How...

Re: Liveaboard land transportation

Depends on where you are, where you want to go and what you want to do while there. Many places have bus service. Vero Beach and St. Augustine here in FL both have very nice systems. If you pick...

Re: Have You Seen the Price of Mooring Balls in Florida Lately ?

You're right. I didn't think of the wildlife refuge across the way from Titusville. People come for all over the country to go birding on the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge in the winter. ...

Re: Costs of Cats on Boats?

Ditto the occasional kitty toy. If my daughter's cat doesn't have something to eat and something to play with, she amuses herself by playing "stomp and purr" on our faces around 2am or so.:D

Re: Have You Seen the Price of Mooring Balls in Florida Lately ?

The St. Augustine M. Marina used to charge $15 just for dingy dockage! $5 more to have a mooring ball and pump out isn't a bad thing IMHO. The last time we anchored there, we fouled our rode on our...

I was able to get the stuck one to move this afternoon, though not the whole way. I think if I can get the lubricant in there, it will probably loosen the rest of the way up. It was already that...

Re: Crime in the Bahamas

Forsail,
Sounds like you encountered a "smack boat." They look like they're doing something sneaky (what with no lights and all), but they're usually just fishing. They go out on the "mother...

Re: Sailboat Sinks off Waikiki After Fire . . . No Deaths

No matter where you are watching from, land or water, a burning boat is a horrible sight. No wonder the "old time" sailors in wood ships feared fire so much!
