    Not on Craigslist and not for sale but

    Just what the world needs, small outboard powered tugboats that are not equipped to tug, or do anything but take up space and look “cute.’  

    Stolen from facebook.  Each and every commenter stated that they loved it, it was “the cutest thing” or where can I get plans.  (Like they said in the caption Glen - L tugboat.  )



    That's the cutest thing, where can I get plans?

  2. I swapped out a dead 1GM10 with a nice working one on my C&C27 at the dock. By far the biggest pain was separating the coupling as the bolts were rusted up. It took about a month of penetrating fluid, tapping etc to finally get them all out. The engine removal was easy, I had to unbolt the mounts from the beds, but it was all pretty simple. Used the boom as a crane to hoist it up and out. I also accurately measured the height of all the mounts on the old engine before reassembly, allowed me to get the alignment pretty much perfect right off the bat when putting the new one in and saved a ton of time messing about stuffed under the cockpit.

    However, try and fix it in the boat first. Lots of good suggestions here, it's a simple engine, what is lacking is good info as to what you've actually tried.

  3. Sadly the museum had to relocate/store most of their wonderful boats, Tilikum, Trekka etc. a few years back when they lost their home in the amazing old courthouse in Victoria, BC - it was a fantastic museum and historic building. They've bounced around a few small places since, I've lost track, but it'd be great to see the boats again, I had the pleasure of wandering around on Trekka, it didn't take long!

    Not really surprised considering how we treat their whanau.




    Must have had to get one fuckload of hoops over a bottle to get those, all I ever got off those carnie bastards was a goldfish with a lump on its head.




    (for the record, I abhor keeping these intelligent majestic creatures in captivity)

    There’s more than a dozen of them in my club. Excellent daysailers /weekenders for their size, and they still race OD in many European countries, too. Only issues are: no reef line (in OD configuration), and iron keels. So be prepared to work with traveller and backstay and look for signs of rust regularly. You can’t go wrong with a H-Boat. 


    That davit looks a bit oversized, neat little RC model hanging off though :D

    PAN  PAN is good for any non life threatening event, if for instance someone came across the boat still floating they could issue a Pan Pan call to advise of a vessel at location XY drifting this way as a danger to navigation.

    That would be a Securite securite no?

    When I bought my Maserati a few months ago at the Maserati Bentley dealership, I was (of course) taken to the finance manager's office, to get pressured to buy a warranty and lending products providing the dealership with appropriate kickbacks incentives.

    "Nope, just run my debit card." The manager was dumbfounded. I asked, "Don't most purchasers of Bentleys and Maseratis just pay cash?" And her response: "No, nobody. Everyone leases."

    Should have stretched to a warranty, you'll probably need it.

    I'd sure hate to be tacking that thing in big seas.  Running across that wide hull would be justplain scary.  No dodger and no bimini either.

    Pretty sure this boat is never going to be doing that. Also, too much sausage, look like a bunch of dock hands from some snooty Yacht club in their matching shorts and polos. Wankers.
