Re: Whats the best way to grow sprouts on a boat with minimal water and won't go mush

That's how mine are. A plastic jar (probably peanut butter :thumb:) with an aluminum screen, the type you get for windows, held on with a rubberband. Just rinse directly and drain the water without...

Re: Whats the best way to grow sprouts on a boat with minimal water and won't go mush

Re: Halyard for old-style roller furling

Yeah you don't see them very often these days. Mine came with the boat. I have hank-ons too but I use the furler almost exclusively. I'd prefer a normal furler because they're a bit smoother and...

Re: Halyard for old-style roller furling

I have the same furler and use a regular sta-set halyard. As long as the swivel at the top is working properly you shouldn't have any twisting issues or wear on the halyard

Re: Another pressure cooker question

I suspect my alcohol camp stove, which only holds 1 ounce of fuel, couldn't do the job. But, there's absolutely no sane reason to assume an Origo boat stove couldn't do it.

Re: Marina liveaboard advice needed, Magothy river.

Just keep in mind that's probably with a year lease. Good option if you know you'll be staying that long.

Re: Marina liveaboard advice needed, Magothy river.

In my marina the water is free. Whether it comes out of the hose and into the tanks of a 50 footer or out of the shower head in the marina restroom makes no difference. Electricity is metered....

Re: How to Secure Boat to Piling

For sandy I used a clove hitch finished with half hitches. I used two lines on the piling, one high and one low, so I wouldn't have to make any adjustments at the piling with the tides. The lines...

Re: Let's see your pride and joy(sailboat)

Just guessing here, but she might sail a little better with both sails on the same tack :whistling:

Or maybe that's just an optical illusion... I don't know.
