Have you seen what Baloo on this forum has done to their 34 model II? They went all out and even added a washing machine to under the lower helm. Impressive since your model has the least amount of...

If there was no damage to anything but a bent piece of the rudder, I'd take a 6lb maul and hold it against the back side and bang it back into shape with a 3lb maul. If it breaks, so what. It's...

If the boat show wrapped up this past weekend ,then it no doubt must have been a factor in all of the traffic. Of course AIS is a relatively recent phenomenon and each year more and more boats are...

You have a front row seat! Pretty cool that civilians can get that close to actual maneuvers. The noise is but a small inconvenience knowing they're on our side.

I know it's kind of disheartening to see an intended anchorage full of boats on the AIS but you have to remind yourself that the icon size is so exaggerated that there's probably plenty of room. Your...

Ahead of the crowd is good too. I can't imagine how bummed I'd be when the day comes that we can't find a decent anchorage at the end of a long day due to overcrowding. I try to always have at least...

Wow! Look at the migration!

I use marine traffic at work to track our fleet and I couldn't help but notice all of the boats making their trek South at the same time in the same area. The weather conditions must be just right...

Success! Well, moderate success.

So I came home and took the generator to the boat to see if it would power the 10k air conditioning/heating unit. The older Dometic I'm sure draws more than a new, state-of-the art one but it...

That is the exact one as I ordered and it was advertised as a pure sine wave inverter. If you look at the pictures, I can't see anywhere on the actual unit that states it's a non-modified sinewave...

It is but it killed the generator while trying to start. That's why I ran a separate generator circuit so as to bypass the transformer. Maybe it will now have enough umph to start it without the...

We got tired of securing the door with a bungy cord in rough weather so I drilled a hole through the door and frame at the top and put a pin through it. That seemed easier than any other solutions. I...

Another inverter & a separate gen circuit

When we first bought our boat, I bought and installed an inverter to be able to operate the usual AC stuff while underway, since we don't have a generator. I, and my dubious wisdom, decided to save a...
