Re: connect 18g wire to 16g

Bryan......I'm with Bill on this one... Use the 14-16 connectors. When I have done this, I strip enough off the 18 ga. wire so the tin wire can be bent over to make it thicker. Then after you put it all together and heat up the connector, both ends will seal up

Re: modified malahini

I agree with Matt.... One small pump with auto feature built in. 500 to 800 GPH will do it. I had four pumps in the Gentry, two at the transom and two at the lowest place in the hull (forward of the engine)…. A total overkill

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Thanks for the kind comments everyone.... I really don't think it will be ready for G-14 Ken. Possibly G-15. My goal is to finish it before Carl finishes his Vera Cruise. Maybe Carl and I will both be taking our recently completed boats to G-15.

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

So after having a wonderful time at G-13, I have decided to restart my PB 22 build. I love this hobby so much and have met so many great people along the way that, after rethinking things, I need to finish this project. We may have to postpone downsizing our house for a while, but having a finished ...

Re: Who's Going and Where

I'm on it Roberta... The new owner plans to remodel all cabins, upgrade the docks, and make many other improvements. I will let them know that we are all watching !! Craig and I had a great time spending time with old friends and meeting new ones. Hope the spaghetti was satisfactory. Sorry about the...

Re: Food

Thanks to Keith, we will be having the Thursday evening spaghetti dinner in the floating restaurant on the first floor. That floor is air conditioned, but it apparently doesn't work all the time. Keith got in touch with the new owner and asked if we could use it and he said yes. It looks like it may...

Re: G-13 Lunch Run to Chattanooga 9/13/19

Here is an update on docking at Scotties..... The restaurant owns three slips which are free and are on a first come, first served basis. So we can use them if they are open. The other slips are controlled by a man named Captain Brad. I contacted Brad and he has invited us to use some empty slips fo...

Butch.…. We will wait for you to sample..... You're right-- Craig's opinion is not always 100% on the mark. See you next Wednesday

Re: G-13 Lunch Run to Chattanooga 9/13/19

I checked out Scotties online and I like the menu, the location (on the water), and they can accommodate our group in their "River Room" which overlooks the river. It is probably less than a 10 minute walk from the marina. Craig and I will go there to sample the food and beer before Friday. They may...
