Re: Flybridge enclosure

We have a 3 side enclosure that is up all year long. We have u shape zippering openings on all 3 sides. Toasty warm if there is sun. As far as “ sailing” I have not noticed any major differences as compared to no windows. I am sure if it was blowing really hard and the docking was extremely tight I ...

Re: Bahamas crossing

We cross from west palm over to west end. Would never trust a weather report that says north will die down and go south..... only leave in a southerly wind direction and be aware of sea state from previous days weather ( heavy northern winds will cause seas for a few days). Good luck with the engine...

Engine Raw water intake strainer

So my 2005 has the raw water intake strainer mounted reverse and a section cut out on the forward section. Why? If mounted as the manufacturer says the water would be forced into the raw water thru hull increasing water flow to the engine....any ideas why the manufacturers did this? I have seen this...

Re: Air Conditioner Replacement

I cleaned and sprayed a rust inhibitor ( the type that turns the rust into a hardened metal) . That has held us for the last 5 years no problems.
I don’t think the 18 is enough during our Bahamas trips can’t see why you would go down?

If it is working clean and spray....wait till it goes.
