Posted on September 20, 2009 at 10:30pm 6 Comments

Is this my new boat?

The boat has been around the world. It's also big - bigger than anything I had planned on for some time if ever - officially 44 feet but that includes a 4 foot bowsprit and about two feet of reverse transom (like most modern sailboats.



Because of the unique situation, I think I could be moved onto my… Continue

Welcome Luana Vaupotic

Posted on January 9, 2009 at 11:12am 0 Comments

My friend Luana Vaupotic has joined SeaKnots. She's fairly new at this sailing thing too, so everyone give her a big hello!

As for me, I'm pondering what I might say to a doctor to get an Rx to move to USVI 'for my health'. I have another cold, there's crusty snow everywhere, and we're getting another eight inches of snow this weekend. Sigh.

Agree on the practicing. Dave, Norine & I had to do MOB's and be tested to get helmsman cert. on the lake..but we should always practice. Have only hove to once in storm in BVI's, not sure how possible that would have been once the shyt hit the fan..maybe could have once we were in running position..have to replay that one in my mind..not enuf exp. with. Yes, was a good time...nobody needed stitches. :-)

BEN OC 43 - Fresh Water Plumbing Schematic

I am looking for a plumbing schematic for the fresh water system on a BEN OC 43 2-cabin version.The issue I am having is with water pressure to the galley sink.  There is good pressure (hot and cold) to forward and aft heads and the cockpit shower, but galley sink is weak.I am thinking the following:- air in the line (proved this isn't the issue)- line routing and distance- clog in delta-facet or facet fittings, etc.- distribution manifoldThoughts and recommendations are welcome, but I want to…See More
