Save a Tancook Whaler in San Pedro California

Posted by Pat Daly on March 28, 2009 at 12:34pm 4 Comments

As an old Tancook whaler owner I hope someone from our SeaKnots community will buy and "save" this absolutely wonderful boat. It's a piece of art and they sail like a dream! Very fast boat.

Believe me, everyone welcomes you and gives you high 5's in a Tancook.



this is not my boat; I found her surfing for wooden sailboats for sale last night... after a few glasses of Jack Daniels.



As far as I know there are ony 2 Tancook… Continue

Lou, for some unknown reason the group has mysteriously vanished.  It no longer appears on my page either.  Hope it wasn't something we said!

Beneteau 43 two cabin slip covers

Posted by John Hanrahan on November 23, 2015 at 7:08pm 0 Comments

We are taking out cat Genny to the Bahamas this year and I am fearful of the beautiful white leatherette salon cushions.  If anyone has had cushions made could you please give us a name of the maker.  We can make them ourselves if we had the dimensions but would be happy if there was a custom supplier.  The boat is in the Abacos and we are in Halifax so we can't go and measure.

Many thanks, John

B43 ENGINE CUT OUT AT AT START AND HOT WATER STARVATION

Hi SeaKnots friends,The Yanmar 55 in out 43 invariably starts immediately then cuts out after 2 seconds running when it then takes 5-8 seconds cranking to restart......it seems as if the injection systems needs repriming. Is there a one way valve to prevent fuel back flow after shutting down?.Second niggle involves the hot water system.
