"This EasyCilmb device is really a great little addition to any boat. I made one and it works as advertised.
using your legs takes the stress out of climbing the mast. It takes only a few seconds to ascend to the very top of your mast. it's so…"
"Hey guys, Before you go out and spend a few hundred dollars and more on a mast climber, Check out the "EasyClimb" I saw a video on YouTube that explains how to make one and I did it. I made my EasyClimb for about 30…"
I've been a water bug most of my life, Certified Scuba Diver, life guard when I was younger, Rowed crew in collage, Sailed various small boats, But now I have a 82 O'day 25...My first big boat, and my first ocean sailing experience. I love it.
New Bedford, MA
Currently Sailing weekends on Buzzards Bay.
I'm looking to sail more, learn more, and have fun.....
Just a thought here. I'm a firm believer in safety in numbers. I'm going to anchor in Point Judith Harbor of Refuge that Thursday night and make the run to Greenport in the morning. You're going to go right by me. Do you know what day or time? Perhaps we could meet up and make the run together. I also have a 25 so our speed should be pretty close.
If not ... see you all there.
Just checking in to see if you're still interested in coming to the O'day rOnDAYvous in Greenport this July. I hope so! For what it's worth, I make it out to be roughly 80 miles from New Bedford to Greenport -- a two-day hop, if you plan it out carefully, and certainly shorter than the distance I and others will travel from points west. In any case, why not send me your email address (to pooby_99 at yahoo dot com) so I can add you to the mailing list for our monthly e-newsletter. Hope to see you in July. Till then, have a good sailing season.
Quick question: How far would you be willing or able to sail your O-25 for an owners' rOnDAYvous? I ask because this year the big get-together is likely to be taking place somewhere out in your neck o' the woods (more or less). Among the destinations under consideration are the New London/Mystic area, the North Fork of Long Island or Shelter Island. Any one of those would probably be closer to you than to me, so why not consider making the trip (once we decide on where)?
"I charged the house batteries all night and this am they were both showing 13.3 volts with my digital multimeter. I put a load on them and after 30 minutes they were showing 12.9 volts, but oddly, on the VDO the main bank was showing 11.0 volts. Why…"
Hey Folksanyone have any trouble with their shower water pump. I have a whale 220 slurper for the shower. it seems to be pushing and pulling water and not pumping out unless I mess with it. when I put my finger by the intake, it sucks then pushes doing nothing with the water.Any ideas?See More
"Update: I checked my house bank batteries with a digital multimeter- battery 1 reads 13.3 volts, battery 2 reads 12.9. When I check the VDO it reads 10.7 for the main house bank. I turn on the charger and it runs for just a few minutes and turns off…"
I am leaving in 5 days on a two week sailing trip to the San Juan Islands and have just started having electrical problems! I am having a hard time figuring out what is going on.Problem: When on shore power I turn on the battery charger and when looking at the main battery voltage indicator on the VDO display, it does not increase like it used to telling me that the battery is being charged. I thought maybe it was a problem with the charger, but the bow thruster battery, and the engine battery…See More
