Re: Marine Electronics

Kens, Hi Buddy, great topic, thanks! I needed most of these answers, too. I still am yet to find a digital map of the Marshall Islands I can plug into a GPS. But, I'll try being polite for once :shock: , and start a new topic, to see if anyone knows where/ how to accomplish this. We have many, many ...

Boat, Boat, Boat, Boat!

Fusion

JB, Don't know that this'll help your piece of mind or not; my younger brother is off work for the next few months after just having spinal fusion on his last three vertebrae; he's been walking six miles a day, the P.T. is paying off; he's stiff, bending at the waist, but, with out pain for the firs...

bubbles

Around here, it's so hot and humid all year that epoxy goes off fast, bubbles appear if you are in the sun, especially as the day gets hotter. I've got to wait for evening to get any epoxy on the boat if I don't want to sand most of my money back off. The epoxy they have locally is about $500.00 per...

heater

Hey John, Are you going to try it? Let us know if it works. I waste a lot of time looking at the boat, drinking beer, waiting for the sun to start setting, so I can get the epoxy on with out all the bubbles. But, the idea of getting near my plywood and epoxy monsterpiece with a torch is SCARY! :shoc...

mistakes?

OK, Sit down and open a beer for this one: :shock: When I was in the Navy,I'd go at lunch time to the Hull Technician shop, they were teaching me to weld. There, I knew a guy who would not even if ordered go near a grinder. As a welder he was done. When questioned by his Senior Chief as to "Why his ...

changes

Maurizio,
Merry Christmas, I'm glad to see the new hull is coming along so well. You work so quickly it surprises us guys who have to drink allot of beer and think about changes for weeks, before moving.
She looks great. I hope you get the ride you want from your new hull.
Aloha,
Gregg

roundhouse

Dave,
the round building is called the roundhouse; it houses a sixties era antenna, and, has been used for years as a place for guy's to work on their boats out of the weather. It's been condemned for the past couple of years, but, they'll never spend the money to tear it down.

Rosekey- G

I hate to post pics of my boat next to Maumarti's- it's not fair to him and all his beautiful work. But, I've been trying, and I guess that counts for a little. I'll need some help figuring out shaft coupling, ect. and Thanks to you guy's who were worrying with me while the engine delivery was hung ...
