Re: 2017 Bahamas Cruise

We crossed on May 3 with Tiger from Lake Worth Inlet and met up with AllezCat who came from St. Lucie due to a mechanical issue. Tiger and Catbo are now at Green Turtle at the Leward Yacht Club. We plan to Stay in the Abacos about three weeks and then head back to Florida.

Re: Towing a RIB?

Thank you all for the responses and ideas. I think we will plan on hoisting the dinghy with the davits and skip towing altogether.

Towing a RIB?

We have a 9.5' Caribe with a 9.9 HP two cycle Yamaha. We have never towed it (or any other Dinghy). We will be traveling to the Abacos in May and thought there may be times where it make sense to tow it rather than using the davits. Any thoughts on towing versus using the davits? If we do tow it, an...

Re: Windshield Wipers

I gave up at the auto parts places, they were all to loose a fit. West Marine had some that looked like the would fit the arms but they didn't have 18 inch. I ordered some from Amazon and they fit perfect. Hopefully the link below will work. If not, they are AFI Polymer Marine Windshield Wiper Blade...

Re: Thru Hull Transducer

Richard, When I cabled my second depth finder it was from the floor of the bathroom to the flybridge. It was purely a stand alone backup depth finder. I took the shelf out under the sink and the medicine cabinet out. Go to the cabinet closest to the helm in the stateroom on the starboard side of the...

Windshield Wipers

Hi All, My windshield wipers need replacing and I am having trouble finding replacements. I am trying to replace the blades and the piece that holds the blades and connects to the metal wiper arm. I have tried a couple from auto parts stores and they look like they should fit, they slide on but the ...

Re: Thru Hull Transducer

In our 2006, the boat came from the factory with a thru hull transducer. It is located in the forward galley area in the storage area beneath the refrigerator. When it began to have some intermittent issues I put a separate, inexpensive Hawkeye Depth Finder in as a backup. It has a shoot thru the hu...

Re: expansion tank?

I have a 2006 with no expansion tank. We also do not have a check valve on the cold water line feeding the Hot Water Heater. We have not had any problems with the relief valve releasing water. Unless you have had the problem since the boat was new I would look at the most likely cause of the problem...

Re: 2017 Bahamas Cruise

We are interested in going to the Bahamas this year as well. We have never been before so the Abacos sounds great to us. We can't before the last few days of April or early May.

10 Year maintenance issues

Hi All, Our boat is a 2006 34 which we have had for a year. We have a dripless seal with a tiny leak and a hose with an occasional drip. It is clear some, if not most of the hoses are original. We are considering having all hoses and any needed stainless pipes, etc. replaced. We would also do any ot...
