Re: New York, we made it

Heck, do the loop twice - think how smooth it'll be the 2nd time around :P It's great to be here, and finally some beautiful weather. Got up this morning to a view of the Narrows Bridge, the Statue of Liberty and the 9/11 building. We're eager to explore this great city and state. Counterclockwise ...

Re: CL scammer useing a members boats/pics

It just so happens that an indian sounding attorney called me yesterday - turns out I have a rich relative that passed recently and left me 2 million dollars. It is only going to cost me $5000 for the proper documents to be filed. I'm going to wire the money today and the 2 million should be in my a...

Re: Interpreting shroud telltales

But what does it mean when the telltales have run all the way up the shrouds to the spreaders - and they are pointing straight up??


Is there a swirling angry mass of clouds and debris over the boat that looks like a spout?

I am curious why they would be pointed straight up also....

I would have to sanitize Gypsea Wind with a flammable liquid and a match!

Re: Companionway hatch cover lubrication

I've been looking to reduce the noise and friction on my hatch also. I think I am going to try this stuff: http://www.apsltd.com/uhmw-tape-2-quot-x-108.html I will call and see if they sell it by the foot. Low profile and wont stand out. I'll post the results after I install it. That will be sometim...

Re: What did Santa bring your Mac?

Got an Adventure Medical Marine 1000 kit. (no first aid kit is ever good enough for an active duty Paramedic, but this one is decent) And the promise of a Raymarine EV-100 Tiller Pilot so that I have something to tinker with over the winter.

Re: Radar Love

I have the BWY radar arch with a Garmin 18hd mounted on it. It is a very sturdy arch and the dome is mounted above my head level when standing. The arch does not interfere with the Bimini or anything else. It has plenty of space to hang and mount other gizmos. It also raises the height of the mast w...

Re: What is wrong with this tire

My trailer tires were doing the same thing. My tires looked just like yours after my first road trip (BWY Seattle to VA). I suspected an overloaded axle and added the second axle. Several long trips now and no weird wear.
