Re: Marine Boat Storage Victoria BC

I have driven to the coast from Calgary numerous times with the Mac and more times than I can count to the Shuswap. The biggest climb between Calgary and the Okanogan is Rodgers Pass.

Re: Ballast Water Leaking into Bilge

This is the only shot I have of the repair, which they said was really quite straight forward once they found it. I don't believe it was a manufacturing defect.

Re: Ballast Water Leaking into Bilge

We developed a leak from our ballast after trailering to the coast and hitting some rough bridge repair work. Bugger of a place to get to. About 4 boat bucks to get it fixed.

Re: Exploring South Puget Sound

Thanks for sharing your stories. We bought out 26X from the Gig Harbor area. So beautiful. I hope someday to spend some time in the area on the Mac

Re: Raymarine EV-100 p70 Wheel Pilot Pack, yay or nay?

Very happy with mine. The installation is not too difficult if you plan things out ahead. The connections only need adapting if you're tying into some other type of backbone. Otherwise it all works on its own. I needed to buy 1 longer cable.
