Re: 3D Printed Power Panel Mod for West Marine Panels

Looks more like a contemporary version of Race Bannon of Johnny Quest.

Re: Do You Want to Know or Not?

As I see it, a portable probe is the same as how the boats come from the factory, stick yer finger in the hole - not quite full / full. As for the LED display eliminating having to look over to see if the water stopped flowing out the transom gate, you still have to look / reach over to close the va...

Re: Yet Another Galley Mod

Next order of business is to work out the water supply and drain. Looks like it will be entertaining. :D Sink drain is standard kitchen size. If I had gotten a marine sink or food truck sink, they make a 90 degree drain fitting with a 1" hose barb. :| I'll have to see what I can work out for this.....

Re: Broken Links / Missing Images When Searching Forum

Hey Russ, He has a point - I just spent an hour trying to find a picture of an X head I just saw about a week ago on the site here and I can't find it! Might there be a way to search or create a page that is just the picture links on the site? I could scroll thru pictures and find stuff easy that w...

Re: Broken Links / Missing Images When Searching Forum

You can also try searching Google images and Pinterest. I've never signed up for Pinterest, yet everyday, at least once, usually more, Pinterest emails links to stuff I like to look at but dont actively search for. When I'm into the boating stuff, I have noticed a lot of Macgregor pics, many that I ...

You could even count your neighboring state, like we do here in Alabama... we just want to know how many Mississippis there are, after the last indicator goes out, before you close the ballast valve... :D
You could verify its performance by hauling at the ramp to see if / how much drains out.

Re: Yet Another Galley Mod

I could assume you've got it figured but thought I'd ask anyway- do you know if this built unit will fit thru the companionway for install?

Re: Yet Another Galley Mod

I just reread this thread from its start. I never had considered a gimbal stove for my boat. Several times I'd been cooking while sailing and even some rolly anchorages, so I'd rig vise grips on the stove grate to keep the pan / pot in place. I've even grilled burgers on the Magna grill while sailin...

Re: Do You Want to Know or Not?

Looks great BOAT!
I imagine you'd work toward making it smaller once you're satisfied with sea trials? What are the considerations for making it weather / marine proof?

Re: 26M Galley Mod Feasibility Question

In this thread, alone, you’ve mentioned a handful of great sounding mods that I can’t find through stalking threads you’ve posted into. In the words of my youth: “pics or it didn’t happen.” Indeed. I haven't posted pics to this forum for many years since my falling out with Flickr. I've come up emp...

Re: 26M Galley Mod Feasibility Question

... That being said I can appreciate the nicety of standing at the galley looking out the door - it's a nice way to cook and serve. The closest you can get to doing that is on the M boat; by sliding the galley aft a little bit, (the galley on later M boats slides fore and aft)... - My solution to a...

Re: Rudder Wear

In the archives there a posts of using old CDs as sacrificial washers to counter the wear you describe.

If accompanied by a squeak, use Bee Gee's CDs to make it sound better!

Why / when is your rigging twisting / kinking?
