Re: What price for quick deal?

Dieter,
This is a bit off topic. What boatyard and city did you haul in? Was it satisfactory? Approximate cost per foot? Any taxes due ? I would like to sail up, leave it over the winter and sail...

Re: 42'-54' Bluewater Cruiser Monohull - Ready to Buy

I saved a bunch of money by taking off all the standing rigging myself and taking it to the rigger. Then reversing the process. The Hayn fittings are reusable. Best wishes on your search!

Re: Power cord - how to clean

Thanks all for the suggestions. I tried soaking it for a couple hours in a light bleach solution. Not like new, but much better. I'll definitely do the 303 if I ever get a new cord.

Re: Power cord - how to clean

Hi thanks for the suggestion. I tried a DRY Magic Eraser. Nothing. Was I supposed to use some type of detergent or liquid with it?

Re: Failed thermostat - Greunert fridge

One more question if I may. Will ANY of the "Universal" analog thermostats on Ebay work or does it have to be the $90 Gruenert thermostat?

Thanks for that distinction. Guess I'll stick with analog. Has worked fine all these years.

Re: Dinghy Bottom Paint

We have always painted our RIB. Regular bottom paint. One coat per year. Either tow it or hoist in the davits. Works perfectly.

Best boat for sale by owner sites

Other than Cruisers Forum of course, what are the best sites to sell a sailboat by owner? Are the ones that charge a fee materially better than no fee? Thanks!
