Nice to read you enjoy PH!
Hope my new boat is finished soon and once we will join too - despite the fact that I never raced in my whole life ;-)

Mind sharing what is so special in MNL-Boracay and what you think about HKG-MNL (or SUBIC or wherever it ends)?

Hello Blubaju,

I am planning to go to the Philippines in the future.

How do you find the sailing and facilities there?

What do you use for maps and Pilots? Are they easy to get?

Where are you in the Philippines now?

sorry Pinoys, this crazy upload feature always cuts the flag instead of leaving the proportions intact, but does not give any hint of the accepted picture size either. I tried for more than an hour but have to stop now, I'll try later again or if someone has one in an uploadable size, please let me know

"All great advice! Did you check the charger's "battery type" selector switch position (flood,gel,agm)? Our Dekka agm's ( 396ah house and 98ah engine) gave us over 7 1/2 years of usage before replacement. The batteries were still…"

"Sam, I have not seen anything like that on my or others 40/43s. I don't understand why they would even do such a thing considering there's no other material they could drive a brad into. Grinding the tops off flush sounds like the right…"

"Yep, I too have snapped a couple of the clam shell drain covers off. I have a couple of spares, but may or may not replace this time. The slack didn't seem to be the ultimate cause. Seems that wind/tide shifts and wake surge would cause the…"

"Sam, we are the essentially the same.  Using the same mantus bridle as you.  Quick question to you and any others using a bridle.  We had the bridle rubbing the sides of the bow in a recent storm and it ended up snapping off the…"

"On Longhawk we use a Rocna 20KG. I changed out the chain gypsy when new to one that handles 5/16 high Test chain. Then I went with 175 ft of 5/16 HT chain tailed with 200 ft of three strand.(overkill, but I had the rode as supplied new). For a short…"
