Re: Where is everyone?

The number one thing that could be done to help this site is to give to someone one cares about it! Shameful what has transpired here. No excuses. The people that have been around a while are trying to hang in but its been probably a month or more since I visited last. New users give it a try and gi...

Re: In-hull transducer

Terminology might be confusing here but if you meant a transducer that requires a hole, I would do rather go with a transducer that shoots thru the hull I have one of these mounted on the transom. http://www.hawkeyeelectronics.com/depthtrax/ The plastic bracket keeps breaking so I am moving it insid...

Not to pile on but I couldn't agree more. The site should be turned over to someone who has an interest in keeping it an active and vibrant community

Re: Glue for 26X head door edging

Gorilla Glue worked for me. Trick with it is to dampen the surfaces slightly. It needs moisture to work best. It expands a lot so use sparingly

Re: Solar (again) with ACR

Re: Ballast leak

We had a crack in our ballast tank. In our case the water was collecting under the table/head area. The crack was on the inboard side of the port tank.

Re: Auto Pilot

Loads of info on here regarding autopilots. Can't go wrong with the Raymarine EV-100.
Search google with ' site: macgregorsailors.com ev-100 ' . (This sites search function doesn't have much history left to it seems)

Re: Bimini Crossing

Many treads on this in the past.. Search function is pooched after the great crash of '17 so try a google search.

'site: macgregorsailors.com bahamas' (change this last term to whatever you want to search for ie bimini, exhumas etc)

Pedestal side panels

While I have the steering pedestal from the :macx: off to patch a bunch of old holes and re gelcoat, I'm going to change the side panels. Do i replace with the same black plexiglass or do something different and use white?
