About Me:
I am a USCG-licensed 50T Master(Steam, Motor, Sail and towing) and the captain of s/v Mai Tai, a sailing/scuba diving Lagoon catamaran charter boat currently in the Great Lakes. I am hoping to do some world exploring with s/v Mai Tai in the near future! I have a passion for anything sailing especially windsurfing. I've windsurfed in Lake Michigan, Baja, Maui, Bonaire, the Oregon coast and the Gorge. I also work on the Research Vessel Neeskay. I'm very eco-conscious. "I don't know why they call them Environmentalists, they should call them survivalists because the environment will still be there. We just won't be able to live in it!"
I have a passion for music and have played in a variety of different bands, from dub reggae to rock!

I am replacing the panels. My window leaked and the plywood panels thart were viynal covered were rotten. I thought that it was a delaminated hull but it is just paneling glued to the walls. There are globs of a epoxy putty that holds the panels on. In places there is 1/2" of space between the hull and panel. I am adding insulation and had to use spray foam from the can to do the sides. I am going to use 1/2" sheet for the ceiling part and paint it all white. I plan to add LED lights in both white and red.

The 3gm Yanmars came in the boat, so they are starting to show a little age. They are good motors tho. They'll push it about 10 knts wide open, I use just one for cruising speed of around 7 knts.

Got any pics of the project?

Captain Rick,

What design is that wooden boat on your photos? Is it a Herreshoff design? It looked very similar to the boat they are restoring at the museum in Bristol, RI.

I took a wind surf lesson on maui(off maui actually) and it beat me down. I dig yer observation about environmentalist vs survivalist. That is so funny but true. Ye nailed that one.

B43 Battery Switch Questions coming up during my LIFEPO4 Battery Upgrade Process

My AGM batteries are getting a bit tired and I am swapping them out for 400ah of lithium, 2 - 200ah 'drop in' replacements.My system has the 3000 watt inverter and Truecharge 40+ shore power charger which the boat came with and  I have verified with the battery manufacturer that these will work with the lithium (they said to set the shore power charger to GEL - WARM to get the right charging characteristics). I have also installed solar a few years back so will need to adjust the charging…See More

Varnish vs Teak Oil in Alaska (looking for advice)

Hey Gang,   I've been spending quite a bit of time taking the old varnish off of my boom and interior cabin. Being based in Alaska, we have big temp swings (-10 to 75 F), and I'm debating just teaking all the wood and holding back on varnishing it. The thought would be that I would just have to apply more teak oil to it every time I went out, but I wouldn't have to deal with the varnish peeling so bad again like it's doing now. Maybe this is just part of the regular upkeep on any boat…See More
