    Its all easy peasy until that squall comes through the anchorage and thins the herd.

    I've used that technique. Proa has it right, it works like a charm until the wind dies. I'm my case, it took a while to untangle the mess after the wind died overnight

    Lusting on Yachtworld

    I agree that the boat is well kept and well presented. I like the way the full enclosure integrates into the hard dodger. However there is something aboutt the hard dodger that seems a bit off. It's subtle and I can't really put my finger on it.

    Sarcasm font? I couldn't tell
  6. Dylan For what its worth, I removed the engine from my boat a couple of years ago. I worried a lot that winter but in the end the whole process was quite straight forward and went surprisingly well. Cheers

    Dylan's New Boat Anarchy

    That's a very purposeful looking ride. Very nice.
  11. Those are called SPOTs around here. "Stupid "P"revious "O"wner "T"ricks
  12. What Ajax said. In the meantime you can keep track "by ear". It will still give you a pretty good idea and some peace of mind re. your fuel consumption.
  13. Before I fixed my fuel gauge, Isimply kept a log to determine consumption per hour. I.e fill the tank. Keep track of the hours run and RPM. Refill and do the math. After a while you will get a very good feel of what your consumption is at different RPM settings.
  14. I had similar symptoms to Dylan,s for a few years. They were intermittent until the grunge clogged the pick up tube screen in the tank. I siphoned the tank dry and was amazed at the amount of crud suspended in the fuel. Thankfully the walls of the tank were clean. I worked through the fuel sender opening. There was plenty of room for the siphon hose and a cheap proctologist's camera. The camera was no worse for wear and the engine runs like a too since. We were hauled out when I emptied the tank and got pretty good suction from the syphon

    Rigid Inflatable Lifespan?

    ^^^ we inherited our 1986 Avon from a friend who had bought it at an auction for $5. It's very long in the tooth and slowly looses pressure, over a couple of days but us just fine for us.
