Another vote for Lofrans Tigres. Thumbs down on Vetus.

Here's another vote for the Lofrans Tigres. I installed the Lofrans Tigres on a 35 foot, 21,000 lb boat. It may be a slight overkill, but it sure works well with 250 feet of chain and my 55# Rocna...

Re-galvanizing is definitely worth it. I have 250 feet of 3/8" G4, which would cost $1,112 plus shipping. The shipping is not cheap. I had our chain re-galvanized for $220 by Madden Galvanizing in...

I used a 45# CQR on a Bristol 40 sailboat for more than 20 years. I would rate it as a good anchor, but not a great anchor compared to the Rocna that I have now on my Rosborough 35 Trawler. I...

Set aside significant money for repairs and replacements

Hello from the US Gulf Coast and welcome aboard the forum!

Eight years ago, I shopped for about a year before buying our 1995 Rosborough 35 Atlantic Trawler. The Rosborough is a very solidly...

Here in the Houston-Galveston area, the brokers don't provide a dock for free. A brokerage dock will cost you $500 to 600 per month.

See the attached data sheet for the Cummins B210

I've attached a copy of the data sheet for my Cummins B210. Specifically, it is a 6BT5.9-M. Based on the data sheet, I think my RPM, HP, and fuel burn numbers are correct. I know the RPM and fuel...

I too grew up sailing and always enjoyed it, except for when the weather was bad. I started sailing a Sunfish at about 10 years old and progressed through the Lido 14, the O'day Javlin, a Gulf Coast...

Good experience with Boat US-GEICO Marine Insurance Program

I have Dream Catcher insured for an agreed-on value of $86,000. I've had the policy with Boat US-GEICO since 2013. The initial premium in 2013 was $2,467, with a 5% deductible. That was with...

Experience with dehumidifiers

We’re on the Texas Gulf Coast so high humidity is just a fact of life. You have to use something to dehumidify or the interior of the boat will have mildew and a bad musty smell. When we first got...

Vic Prop was amazingly accurate for my boat

I went through the Vic Prop calculations for my Rosborough 35 and found they calculated everything very close, using the Cummins B210 Performance Curve for my boat. Vic Prop recommended a 4-blade...

Propane may be a better option for the Bahamas

The US Virgin Islands had a similar Diesel-fueled generation setup until about 3 years ago. When the Hovensa Refinery on St. Croix was operating, they had an advantage because they got Diesel fuel...

Like most everyone that has responded, I too would stick with the larger engine that the boat has in it now. I have a Rosborough 35 trawler, with a Cummins B210 engine. The Rosborough 35 is similar...

That's a beautiful boat and at $50,000 it could be a good deal. However, it always concerns me when there are no photos of the engine room. You can tell a lot about a boat by looking at the engine...

If you have a new engine put in, it will probably have a nice paint job and the new engine will look great. Several years ago, before we switched to a trawler, we had a new Volvo D2-50 installed in...
