  1. A bastard hybrid of a Morgan and a Bayliner. Say what you want about the 80's vintage Nauticats, at least they look like the designer was competent. You're welcome!

    A sink with gravity drainage is far preferable, IMHO. At best, draining to the bilge will put wear and tear on the pump. At worst, sink the boat.

    Coolboats to admire

    Was chatting with a colleague yesterday and he got to talking about a job he had installing a lithium bank on Aileen. He's not a boat guy and his takeaway was: "so fancy, they didn't let me wear shoes!" Pretty interesting:

    If you're not seeing any of the symptoms of chronic exposure and you aren't being exposed any more, it's probably not worth the trouble.

    yanmar rebuild?

    That's called a getting a 2GM20 the hard way. Pretty amazing you got home with her.

    Umm, no. Lead has a half life in the blood of about a month and generally ends up in the teeth and bone, from which it can be re-released into the blood. Between the very slow clearance rate from the body and the fact that toxicity occurs at very low blood lead levels (there's no known safe dose), you will suffer from almost any exposure level over almost any period of time and you will be just as bad off from a short, high dose as a long, low dose.

    Hate on my new that 70's boat...

    Absolutely nothing wrong with that. Mount some longhorns above the grille and it's perfect.

    Two words: bead curtain.
  9. Sadly, she's probably pretty hot. You don't get to be that callous and self-centered without growing up with money, power, and/or looks.

    Still cheaper than my health insurance south of the border.

  12. I was about to agree with you but my buddy's Nauticat has them and despite all appearances to the contrary, it's actually a decent sailboat. Better than mine, in fact, in December and January when he's out sailing with the pilothouse heat on full blast and the windshield wipers doing their thing.
