I haven’t, but I would not mind the ease in maneuvering. That said, I am okay getting the boat to go where I need it to go. The real challenge is getting it to stay there long enough to get a line to...

The radar on my Mariner 37 is on the bridge as well. Doesn't add up. You are definitely on the right track.

This and the leader with a suitable carabiner on the end hanging out of the hawse pipe for dock hands to clip to dock lines are the two approaches I intend to try. Great stuff. Thanks folks.

The picture above is a starboard tie and that leaves the boat facing north, and that leaves the cockpit and bridge deck facing south. Shade is important here in the summer, and we found the port tie...

Nice! What does it weigh as shown above?

SeaShea also makes a 360 model, but no weights are listed.

No current, but the wind comes around to east (and off the dock) often with a vengeance.

I understand the stern line physics and strategy, but the Mariner 37 has only a hawse pipe cleat and that...

Very nice, Steely Don. Your maneuvering improvement is impressive.



The rudder on our Mariner 37 is rather large (compared to a Frisbee anyway), but we still wander quite a bit and keep the...

Understanding the problem is more likely my shortcoming, Barrie! Most I’ve seen and helped have dock lines on, well, the dock. Hadn’t occurred to me to have those handy “correct length” lines on the...

That makes sense, and I've seen one of my more experienced sailboat neighbors tie us off that way once. A friend also suggested the short line hanging out of the hawse pipe for docking. Excellent...

And yes, virtually all initial ties get re-done...

We do too, Barrie, but when arriving at a dock with unfamiliar dock hands or friends with plenty more on their minds than where our lines go, a cleat is obvious where a hawse pipe cleat is not.

Frosting that fast means you've got a lot of moisture inside. Towel the inside dry. Does the door seal? I'd start by checking the seals.

Is that second compressor worth the additional $1300? The power consumption listed is very similar for the two models.

And is it safe to assume it is a direct replacement for the old unit?
