Re: Boating checklist

There's a scientific formula regarding the "get a paddle" notation.

Re: First Post, First Boat, 32' Sedan

David, To your depth question (and not to steal Ewrice's possible answer...) - It depends on your depth gauge. Allow me to explain. 1. All depth gauges measure the distance from the transducer to the bottom. 2. My 32' SB has a "draft" of 2'. This is the distance between the surface of the ...

A section of our dinette's parquet floor is missing one of the pieces (popped off when lifting the adjacent access panels fpr the AC pump/valve and I didn't notice ). It's possible it's down in the forward bilge but I haven't located it yet. It's likely it'll be "uggy". Anyone have a spare...

Re: Fresh Water Holding Tank Pump
