Finally figured out how to navigate Sea Knots. Months ago I set up a profile and you commented. I have had a few articles published, was one of several who served as editor and reviewer for an education book, as well as edit articles and letters for colleagues.

Thanks, Jerry. Sea Fox is a Saga 43. She's a Robert Perry design built for speed with only a 12' beam so she sails very well. Our 7' draft is a problem in some places but we don't mind. We're her third owners - bought her in 2004 and moved aboard 2 years ago.
A few years ago we chartered an IP out of Burnt Store Marina and managed to go agound a couple of times so we won't be visiting your part of Florida in Sea Fox. We've been crusing the east coast - got to Maine this year - and got as far south in the Bahamas as Warderick Wells. Will be doing more Bahamas exploring in the coming winter.

"Sam, wow that's some serious blockage. Like James we too flush with fresh water. And like James haven't had any issues with hose blockage (that we know of) or odor. Actually we find our biggest source of odor in the heads come from the…"
"Thanks for reply. Salt water + urine = calcification along with dead seacritter buildup/blockage equates to blocked pipes!
Even though our B43 has never flushed seawater I maintained original equipment in place but totally disconnected (thru hull…"
"James, we use saltwater when offshore. Otherwise we use a freshwater flush. The design is such that whatever is in the line sits between the top of the holding tank and the joker valve. Over time, stuff builds up. Amazed at what a human can produce!…"
