RE: Cruising Spare Parts

One spare part I am now carrying onboard is a lehman-Jabsco water pump drive!

This was donated by a generous member of the Trawler Forum.

RE: Cruising Spare Parts

But with a single engine you'll be changing it in unpredictable winds, with logs and stumps and eelgrass floating around you, clogging the intake, while in a hot cramped engine room, being swept towards the rocks by a swift current. Or at least that's what I'm told........

Cruising Spare Parts

Ken, *I could be anchored off the channel in a calm spot. With the engine cooled down after a simple lunch or refreshing swim.

You never know.

Well that spoils all my fun. I guess if you were in Bellingham Bay instead of that mill pond in New Jersey, you'd know how dangerous it was all the time, totally unpredictable conditions out there. I read a book once where a whale attacked a ship, so I keep a sharp lookout for them now too.

Yours truly, tongue in cheek

Keith, I will keep a sharp watch for them. Do whales swim in 6' of water?

Walt, We are just having a little fun.* When and if the day comes I have to change out my newly aquired spare part- regardless of conditions- I will have to credit Marin for saving the day for without his input I would not have been prepared to fix the issue.* Also major credit goes to the*member who gave me the part.

Great folks all-- Awesome Forum!

I didn't mean it pains me to agree with Marin but rather it's what he said! I often agree with Marin!

This G--D--- English language is a bitch to make one's true intent known. I wish I knew how to speak and write in Greek as the interpretation is quite literal in that language.

Walt--- The font menu here includes this.* If you use it nobody will ever question anything you say and will follow your advice like rats following the Piper because they'll figure that if you can speak this you MUST know what you're talking about.

PS--- Shoot, it doesn't work.* When you write a post you can put into one of those symbol fonts in the advanced editor.* But it obviously doesn't actually make it to the forum page in that font.* Oh well......

RE: Cruising Spare Parts

Sorry folks...I missed the pissing match. This thread has been cleaned up a bit. I was going to delete the whole thing but there is good info here. I just deleted the personal attacks. Please, we have no issue with spirited debate. Just don't allow it to deteriorate into personal attacks!
