  1. Here are some pics I took today. According to the shipwright doing the work, she was built with a centerboard and two ~2,000 gallon water ballast tanks. Second owner converted these into a total of 1,000 gallons of diesel, which didn't play well with the Aluminum. This owner also spent a lot of time welding, including a fixed keel. It is said there is about 3 more months of work before splash time. Then the joinery can start getting put back in. Quite the project. Looking at the deck layout, I didn't see the primaries - but then, it is a pretty big jobsite. 2023361770_IMG_26092.HEIC I
  2. BTW, the batteries are specc'd as lth-2-mdc-dl. Looks lide group 27 (correct size) ~90-96 Ah each.
  3. For what it is worth, Fonatur came in with a reasonable price to remove and replace. A bit more than I would like, but they will source, remove and replace the existing batteries. That alone will likely save 2 days of boat work, plus the battery setup with 5 batteries would be a job.
  4. I'm confused. I had Verizon for a long time until I figured out they had no customer service. When did they start?
  5. Looks like my battery charger went on a rampage in the last 6 weeks and dried out 5 group 27 batteries. Who knows what's close to Marina El Cid?
  6. I've got a Baja filter. The boat holds ~50 gallons, 25 more in Jerry cans, burns ~3/4 gallon per hour at 5 knots. That's about 400 miles with no wind and I leave 5 gallons in each tank. The plan is to get to Cabo San Luca, top up and gas up in Turtle bay? Is turtle Bay dinghy in or gas dock?
  7. I am coming up the Californias in a few weeks from Mazatlan. I am curious where I can get diesel on the west coast of baja and how to get it (i.e. fuel dock, dinghy or panga). I was down to see my (new to me) boat about a month ago and diesel at the marina was about $4.00 per gallon. I don't want a motorboat ride, but I don't want to be a slave to weather either. Thanks!
  8. Never mind. You treat it as a new registration.
  9. New to me boat. It has two 406 EPIRBs. I don't see a link to change the registration from old owner to new. Anyone done this?
  10. *on* the boat. What happened to "edit"?
  11. Thanks. Not going off the boat. At home; not going anywhere near the boat.
  12. Delivering a boat from Mazatlan to Northern CA. Wife just had foot surgery and doesn't need the Oxycodone and some sort of anti nausea medicine (which would be the likely most used. The Meds are in her name. We have the same married name (and have been so for ~35 years). What is the risk of taking these in case of injury or seasickness (most likely). Don't want to get in trouble with DEA od San Diego customs. Comments?
  13. I think Bill was alleging infidelity. He caught Melinda using a Mac.
  14. USCG registration in California.
  15. I'm looking for some language that will allow me to bring Capitan's boat back from Mexico to California and have some yard work done. He is now 89 and I am a lifelong crew and want to help him out. Also, are there any other flourishes needed (aka notarization)? Many thanks!

  17. Just ordered a new (generation 8) iPad for navigation (I use Navionics). My old iPad had a Lifeproof Nuud case which has been great. Lifeproof does not (yet?) make an iPad case for the Gen 8. Anyone have real world reviews of what is good for the Gen 8's? I really liked that the screen was the screen with no covering of the glass. Thanks!
  18. Google earth shows the bridges. I'm looking for theri clearances. (heights above the water).
  19. I have already googled "Florida Man..." I'm in it. How about Florida Bridges?
  20. Wife is thinking (if you know what I mean, and I think that you do)... of retiring to Florida. Daytona beach is the current radar target, along with Daytona beach YC. I've got a Swan 47 on the West Coast. Mast height is ~70 feet. Any Ideas about getting under bridges? Here on the California Delta the have these bridges that move up and down to let ships and sailboats with tall masts get by. All input is welcome.
  21. While you're at it, get a shingle stretcher. Worth the cost!
