I could argue that Quicksilver does not need basic courses offered thru ABC, USCG, Boat US, etc.

That's what I saw, too. So, one needs to be aware of the limitations and plan accordingly. Cat IIIa and c are fairly rare, for the most part, and somewhat predictable. So often fog forms in the...

Soo,
I'd be surprised that folks would run out and get one just to play in the fog. And, no, most people do not run in the fog, but some do. I'll launch in fog with a forecast to improve, especially...

Rich,
Perhaps we've learned to better deal with the laws of physics. One of the reasons I mentioned using it in fog is that a friend has a newer permanent mount FLIR and says it works well in fog....

JMarsh,


Very good points, especially about radar. However, I have radar and agree that is probably the best tool for running at night or in fog.



The FLIR would compliment the radar. I'm...

One would think that it would be nice to have the flir in place of the spotlight in any kind of precip or fog. A spot light doesn't work well in fog, and even in mist...

Sounds like you folks had a great time, as usual. I really thought about coming but just had a medical procedure that I needed a bit more rest.


Great Job, Ted. I'm shooting for next year.

I'm one that just cannot see this scenario played out at all. Only if a really poor helmsman were running the boat, and/or really exceptional bad luck. But why would a diesel boat be carrying many...

Flir

Shopping for a FLIR unit. Believe I want a handheld monocular. Use would be for running the boat at night or fog for collision avoidance. Also, other uses.

The documentation process is for a TITLE. You could alternatively TITLE the boat in a state.
You will most likely have to REGISTER the boat in the state it's domiciled and pay the state taxes.

Well, a quick search found several diesel boats on BT for less than $50, and a few that would compare with the OPs Silverton less than $30.

Eric,


With all due respect, I've owned 48 gas engines in boats and planes, and I'm also an aircraft mechanic, and do a lot of my own work on both. Overall, the gas is MUCH less reliable and a...

Overall, they are fine boats. I looked at them but ended up with a 400 and later the 430.

The Volvo engines would be a deal killer for me and seems like there's very few on Mainships. I just...

You mean the 9wk Northern lights cost $11 and $11 to install? That's pretty steep on the install. Did they do a lot of extras?
