    I would think with the time she has been at sea there is probably a fair bit of growth slowing her down

    Jabsco toilet rant

    One solution for the seals not doing their job is to simply make sure they are properly seated in the lid or seat. (Sometimes they tend to pull out slightly if you try too hard to break the vacuum too soon). Otherwise, the simplicity and reliability of the system is great. Our plumbing set up is rather complex, however we have lots of options for where things go.

    We have a Lavac with a macerator and manual pump in series. We are very happy with the set up and the only problems we have had with the system have been pump related, not with the Lavac.

    53 foot yawl Hutoica.

    Just came across a photo from 1936 of the yawl "Hutoica", presumably somewhere on the U.S. east coast. I do not get any results on G. search and am wondering if anyone the forum might know anything about her.

    Was the 62 knots on the south or north side of Tsehum Harbour?

    onboard coffee??

    Our solution is to boil the water in the kettle on the propane stove, put a scoop of coffee in a small stainless steel filter that fits in a cup and pour. Delicious coffee, coffee maker takes up minimal space and will not break. Repeat as required.

    What's your boat beer?

    For Nonsuch sailors, it has to be Nonsuch Ale(x). 750 ml bottle at 10%!
