I believe that they need to have good surface contact with the hull - or shaft or tabs or rudder...

Re: How do you make coffee at anchor?

We bought a single burner butane stove, it's very compact and extremely useful. Then we got ahold of an old stile coffee perculator. There's nothing like fresh perked coffee when you're on the hook I did this for years. I still have the butane burner which is nice to use outside so you don't heat u...

Re: sign and glide

When I got a quote from NBOA, who used progressive in Ohio, this tow coverage was $30/yr with $3000/yr coverage.

Re: Marinette 39 Sedan sea trial

Thank you all for the help. I found my tachometers on my 454 crusaders were not very accurate at low rpm. I use an optical tach to set idle speed - put a piece of reflective tape on the harmonic balance and use a laser tach to count the rpms. When engines are set to 750 rpm, the marinette tach shows...

Re: Marinette 39 Sedan sea trial

The sea trial was completed on Saturday. In the end, everything went pretty well. The deal is pretty much done. Rusting water from the motors pumped out at first as these engines were not winterized due to the indoor heated storage. We were looking for that. Then the water flow out of the port engin...

Re: Marinette 39 Sedan sea trial

Thank you for the help. As for running the engines at survey, the indoor heated storage facility does not permit engines to run or access to any water. They even have to connect and disconnect the batteries. They are picking. The engines only have 350 hours on them and look nearly near with service ...

Re: Marinette 39 Sedan sea trial

Thank you Jim.
This boat has a key for each engine in the galley cupboard. Each helm just has starter switches.
It is also a sedan.
