Re: What is wrong with this picture?

Don't ask me about boat owners in my marina and how they tie their boats up on cleats. "wrap it around the cleat many times". *sigh*

This was not a sailboat. Mo...

Re: Digital Logbook, App, PC or...?

I don't know what apps are out there. I'm sure a simple notepad app would even work. Amazon has Fire tablet on sale all the time. Can pick one up to leave on the boat. I bought a Fire 7 for $40 to use for a smart home app and is now basically a slideshow/home controller. I'm with you, my handwriting...

Re: End of season approaching

Sounds similar to our summer. Did not get to use the boat nearly as much as wished for all kinds of reasons. We also have a 90 mile drive to the lake which makes it a full day. We were planning to go up this Monday (we avoid weekends) and then this SMOKE came in and we scrubbed our plans. Visibility...

Re: Do You Want to Know or Not?

You could run a CAT5 cable up there to bring 8 wires to play with. Use one pair to bring power to the board and the rest to power the remote LEDs in the cockpit. Of course use a stranded cable.
