Sailing since 1978, Offshore Sailing School, owner DownEast 32m then Camper Nicholson 40, then Nauticat 43, cruised extensivly on my Oyster 485 sold in Newport Beach, she is now in Seattle. East Coast waters dictated change so now have Albin 36 Express Trawler bought this summer. So far I really like her looks and feel, space but miss the oyster quality and sailing. USCG 50T Captail with Sail and Towing Endorsements.
Great Barrier Reef/Australia, West Coast of England, Acapulco to San Francisco, American Samoa to Hawaii, Thoirny path FL to Leeward Islands, Bermuda and US East Coast Newport, RI to Key West mostly on the "outside". Total 18,000+ blue-water miles, mostly double-handed.
Welcome aboard. I can understand how you would miss that Oyster. In the picture you posted, she looks gorgeous. Back in my old married days, I lived aboard and cruised a custom 55-footer and I have to say, while I do sometimes miss that old beauty, I am happy to have a much smaller boat these days. I imagine you feel the same. But man, you must miss the sailing!
Last night we were cleaning up and the door of the microwave refused to open.The unit is a ENO and to date has worked perfectly.Questions;1. Has this happened to anyone else and initial checks do not indicate anything caught in the door.2. How do you remove the unit from the cabinetry if the jam cannot be released?BilgolabandsSee More
Could someone please verify for me that the only way to pump out the holding tank is through the deck fitting?I do understand that if the Y valve is placed in the overboard position and the through hull is open, any discharge from the toilet via electric flush goes directly overboard (at least I think it will not pass through the holding tank).My concern is the ability to empty the holding tank while at sea should it become full during that transition time to go off shore.Thanks for any info…See More
