Re: ST21 'Skinnydip' build, and boating adventures, Noosa, Australia

Work boat finish makes this so much easier. I think that the only time I won’t do work boat finish in the future is if I’m trading my time for lots of green paper.

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

Nice!

You might want to sit in it in the dark with the lights on to ensure the forward led isn’t glaring in the eyes. The angle makes it look lower than you probably have it.

Excellent news!

Are these not used in the aviation industry? Only curious due to the name and the usual demand that critical components for aviation have long term support plans (typically decades).

Re: Rb12 motor question

I’ve been looking at 2022 tohatsu for my sailboat. I only need 8hp but I looked at higher hp. I recently helped a neighbor repair a 2014 Merc 30hp on a Carolina skiff. E start capable but no battery in boat. Other newer motors have been Yammy 20 and 15. At to older 2smoke and 4s, my ‘04 Merc 9.9 has...

Re: Rb12 motor question

Many small pull start (my experience is up to 30hp mercury) have remote throttle options. Runs about $400 for the full kit. Look at tohatsu and mercury for the most common and cheapest. Suzuki, Yamaha and Honda in increasing cost order.

Re: 1986 19' Atlantic rebuild

Is that an actual berth? My favorite “sleep inside” place is a pilots berth that is a bit smaller than that one. Nice and cozy. Open the rear dorade for a nice breeze of close it to stay nice and toasty. Pair it a nearly white gray (do not do white!) and put 3 diffused LEDs at 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 with dpd...

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

My big question about this whole deal is does this mean I got to be nice to you now :doh: I don’t think so. I mean if you want to no one will stop you. But they may be disappointed. OQ, yeah. I tend to not season much. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll spice things up, but I don’t like to hide the flavor th...

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

Sorry for "ghosting" y'all. Had a bad couple days there. Here's the short statement of what was wrong, what they did, and what I actually know: * 2x100% occulsions * multiple "greater than 50%" * one of the 100% addressed with a stint * the "greater than 50%" where some...

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

Well... there a bit more delay here. Apparently not going to a doctor for a couple decades will catch up with you. Sunday night I had a "severe cardiac event". Luckily I knew something was brewing so I was already at the hospital when my body tried to give up on my brain. I have some metal...

Re: ST21 'Skinnydip' build, and boating adventures, Noosa, Australia

Can’t believe they designed that car to perfect fit the lines of that pram. Seems like some car designer must build boats! I don’t think you will be disappointed giving the edrive those batteries. Look for a low voltage shutoff (I’m surprised the batts don’t have one built in). You should be able to...
