Re: Do You Want to Know or Not?

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. If th...

Re: Do You Want to Know or Not?

Trust me - it's dry - the aft does not hold much water - by the time the bow sender goes empty you have about two seconds of water left in the aft section. I could not even close the valve that fast to trap the water.

Re: New Owner / Member With Questions

My old truck camper shell was more weight than the boat trailer and I winched it up into the rafters of my garage all the time to store it. I live in a tract home in California where there are no storm or hurricane codes so you can't get a house more chintzy than that. Do what Tom said - a decent bl...

Re: Do You Want to Know or Not?

They made the little cookie boards so that amateurs can solder them - on the back side the wells are pretty deep so all you really need to do is melt solder and it will flow into the little hole/well. It's not like surface electronics where there is no metal in the hole - the little cookie board has...

Re: Yet Another Galley Mod

Wow, I did not know any of that - you did not need to answer all those question - I just figured I would ask.

Now I am smarter.

Re: Yet Another Galley Mod

Hey! Why did you peel the paper labels off the wood so I could not read them? I wanted to know where your wood came from!! Why do you have an engine hoist there? Do you hoist engines?? What's with that hammer? It's all chewed up! Did you try to drive nails with that rubber hammer? Why does your wood...

Re: Do You Want to Know or Not?

So, what's the story on the PCB's. You can't just have them materialize. Where'd you get 'em? What did you have to give them so they could make them the way you wanted them? Inquiring minds want to know! :D Well, apparently the bread board is a universal thing that is always wired the same way. (I ...

Re: Yet Another Galley Mod

Facing the galley there are two sliders on the right side but there is only one slider on the left side and it;s at the rear of the galley so one corner is not supported. Now, just to let you know - when I added the three gallon hot water tank to the back left side of the galley it really stabilized...

Re: 26M Galley Mod Feasibility Question

No kilts or dresses for me, but any bottoms that don't have zippers work just about as well. Ah, I see, so your a professional - that changes things. It's called a 'head' because it's the only place in the boat where you can stand up - thus "Head Room" or The Head Room as it was originally termed a...

Re: 26M Galley Mod Feasibility Question

Taking a crap on a small boat is a pain in the a . . . . wait, this all sounds redundant. On either boat it's hard to put the galley under the ladder because it's not wide enough for people to walk in if someone is at the galley. That being said I can appreciate the nicety of standing at the galley ...
