      We saw you last Tuesday headed north as we were returning from Port Browning. Always great to spot another Helmsman.

      The barge was not there but a boat was. We were bow in - port tied to the first 40' slip. There was no way out except to back down the...

      The bracket is only about 1 inch deep. It clips at the bottom of the TV and can be released by pulling two release straps. The 40" TV...

      We used this one and it works fine. It’s very compact and fits in the salon TV cabinet with a 40” TV.

      We’re looking for a way to keep the fenders from making it difficult to get to the bow or fly bridge while underway. We have fender...

      On our boat, there is no access to the sides of the FRP holding tank, ruling out the possibility of using the SCAD sensor. Thanks to my...

      We have tried the Tide in the tank and a good sloshing around on a half full tank and a nearly full tank with no luck. Does anyone know...

      The problem with Friday Harbor is that their marina map does not show slip numbers. We assumed, incorrectly, the Slip G-8 would not be...

      Doug_Snider replied to the thread Helmsman 38E Build Hull 61.

      Do you have a spec or source on the hooks you used?
    • Doug_Snider
      I meant the gate in the bulwark. We always dock bow in so that has never been an issue. Another Helmsman owner in our marina has to use...
