Taking the lid of Pandora's Micron Box is a ticket to whatever Bad Place you believe in.

For the record, though, we use 2 micron filters in everything.

Now that's funny!😗 And I think he already doesn't like my anchor OR my lack of shirt wearing. But, that's ok, we've met and had a fine time

Good Friar-I am not surprised your daughter slept well. Over the years, I have found three things that are always better on the boat-eating, sleeping, and the third I will leave to you and your good wife to discover.

The first Apostles were anglers. Jesus said, "Follow me and I'll make you fishers of men."

Greetings,
Mr. FW. Far be it from me to correct your bible knowledge but weren't the first apostles trawlermen? They dragged nets didn't they? Anglers use rod and line...

Back hurts like hell but it is because I have been tending to business on the boat. I can live with that. Mess and Gin help an awful lot at end of long day.
I agree with RT and Marin, it makes sense to run the Racors at 2 micron, therefore sparing your engine mounted filters as much as possible.

Also, I agree that it makes sense to keep the systems you have, before spending significant time and money to change stuff. That was the lesson I learned the expensive way.

Lastly for the big stuff I would get it from HopCar, but for expendables, filters and oil soak rags, in particular, no one comes close to Amazon in terms of price. Even Defender has an extra marine markup.

Taking the Plunge

Just in case some of you think I've been slacking off. This all came out of the back hold. What is still in there are two spare props, 3 more anchors, and an extra shore power cable.

Yes, this was all left with the boat.

NICE!!!! and now for Captain's hour!Click image for larger version

It's funny now when we talk to our dirt dwelling friends and we automatically just starting using boat terms. My wife's friend told her, "it's like you're speaking another language!" Than we have to back up and explain.

I knew it was called a lazarrette, that should mean it`s a small type of "lazar"? I ve never heard of a "lazar".
On a different subject, Priests of the Roman Catholic Church here cannot marry. Personally, I think that is very silly.
