In August I got a message in part Spanish and translated English that someone was interested in the boat. After a couple of months of communication and not expecting it to be true, I sent a...

28 on the way to Uruguay

Well I sold my 1984 28 in October of last year. It has been interesting and the boat was finally picked up yesterday. I took it to a local heavy equipment company and it was transferred onto the transporter's trailer. The vessel is now on it's way to the port and then to URUGUAY... I hope that the n...

Re: Proper prop size for 37 DC with 440's

Our 39 with 454 Crusaders is running 19x22 - so I was told by the previous owner. It ran well with not much on board. I should check it loaded with our stuff now.

Re: running on one engine to save fuel?

I hope to install fuel monitoring senders in the next couple of years. There are some old sending units on my engines but I'm told that they are not supported any longer.
