Re: Slidemoor system for MV 34?

Duane, We have Slidemoors on our current boat. There is one consideration for any boat: The piling and Slidemoor should be directly opposite the cleat on the boat for the best performance. Nothing other than that.

Re: New owner with so many questions

From the records I have on POA owners ADVENTURE is #32001, which would make you hull number 1.

Exumas conditions October 3, 2015

How about any reports about conditions in the Exumas. Many folks are heading that way and wonder about hurricane damage.

Re: NAFTA Certification Document

Clinton signed it into law on December 8, 1993; the agreement went into effect on January 1, 1994. Anything prior to that date would be irrelevant.

Re: A/C in Cabins not getting cold no faults?

It is an electronic switch that shunts power in one of two directions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TRIAC

Re: A/C in Cabins not getting cold no faults?

If there is adequate charge in the system a common failure is the triac on the circuit board. A replacement online costs less than $10. We paid $8.95 and bought two # TG35F60, 600V from www.jameco.com (Jameco Electronics 1-800-831-4242). Also the capacitor fails on occasion.

Re: Location of keels & tacking ability - 32 vs 36?

Throwing the wheel hard over like a mono hull will stall the boat also. A more moderate wheel position and back winding the jib works very well. You will never get a fast tack, so go with one that gets you through the wind.

Re: Deck cap WASTE

I ALWAYS removed my own caps and put them back on. Dockside crews often have no clue about anything on a boat.

Re: Anyone with experience with composting head?

Surveyors don't look at marine heads. They look at the general condition of the vessel for seaworthiness and insurance.
