  1. This company has been around for a while and I think has good advice. They don't have boat stuff but the RV would work also. Here is an article from them. https://5gstore.com/page/13_will_an_antenna_help_me.html And this was just written. https://www.panbo.com/cell-boosters-for-pandemic-times-testing-shakespeare-stream-surecall-fusion2go/

    TruFuel as reserve tank?

    I was replying to the OP. I agree with you on the MSRS.

    TruFuel as reserve tank?

    I would recommend stabilized ethanol free gas in a plastic can. No matter what you do those metal are thin and rust quick. This lists places that sell it. https://www.pure-gas.org/index.jsp?stateprov=ME

    Lithium Ion Power Stations

    If everything you want to power is 12 v DC this is more than you need. I think it's capacity is rated at ac so would be less DCThis has a inverter to power small AC things. If all you want is DC a jump pack might be better. it should do what you want but has more than you want so costs more.

    Jack lines

    The problem with hooks that don't latch is they can twist then open and come off. There have been a few case studies. Even some of the "locking" ones have been shown to not lock properly sometimes and then be quite weaker. Same issue with rock climbing biners. If they are open they are much weaker.

    Regal Mariner oven/cook top

    Have you tried Amazon for Piezo rotary valve igniters? You might see something that would work. Or contacted Rinnai with that part number? Just two ideas.

    Is it ungood to use only one solar panel?

    Plenty of experience with the different systems and sizes. Not the least expensive. https://oceanplanetenergy.com/

    Hookah/floating shallow dive compressor - anyone?

    If your hose goes to a harness as described above you can't just spit out the regulator. The harness is useful so you are not having all the hose pulling on the mouthpiece. Although I think I would have a quick disconnect at the harness.

    New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

    I installed it today and it looks interesting. I can think of a number of ways it could be useful. Thanks for making and sharing it.

    Hookah/floating shallow dive compressor - anyone?

    I am not going to go into all the details but what every you use you want to make sure it is oil free. It's very bad to breath oil. Which means pump and the line should be breathing air quality.

    Floor board anchors screws - any good?

    I installed them in a boat that needed to have the floor boards held down for offshore racing. I found then not that hard to install and once installed easy to use. The set over the bilge pump was removed and tightened all the time to check the bilge . The ones in the OP post are sold for holding down floor boards. Only issue was one area squeaked. I read that a few layers of duct tape can stop that.

    Help! Searching for Bukh DV8 Anode

    Looking at Boatzincs.com it says this is the correct one. https://www.boatzincs.com/BUKH008E8207-specs.html There is a different one that does not fit.

    Fairing Compound Vibration Resistance

    Why does it even need fairing compound on the inside? If it's cracking it needs some reinforcement. And doesn't need to faired after that.
