Hey Tracy - so sorry.. I was totally out of it not realizing this was big holiday week... family celebrations of Seder and Easter.... plus the weather sucked. Are you a teacher or student re the school. Weather looks awesome for Thursday and Friday. Are you ever free during the week ? The next couple weekends I can't go sailing but I can go during the week. My boat is up in New York so I've been looking at different places to rent..... Talk to you soon.... My Irish friend and I never went sailing...too cold.... fair winds....
Tracy: Thanks for the compliment! I was a military trained photographer and worked as a free-lance photog in (what now seems) a previous life.
I am going down to the boat this Friday to get her in shape for summer sailing and will let you know when the next trip will be.
Welcome to Seaknots!
I have a 36' motorsailer based in (actually near) Oriental, NC and plan to do a lot of sailing this summer on the Neuce River and Pamlico Sound.

The shower sump pump will run once the water level activates the float switch, pump the sump dry (kind of a pulsing suction, not smooth like the bilge pump), then enough water will flow…See More
I am having problems with my Teleflex engine control. It works fine controlling the throttle, mooves smoothly. But when the tranny is engaged the lever is very hard to move past 10:00 inf orwrd, or 2:00 in reverse. Once it passes that point it moves smoothly. And going from forwrd to reverse is especially difficult. I have a 2012 B40 with a Yanmar 53hp diesel.Any ideas?See More
Hope someone can help me.I have a 2009 BEN OC 43 with a Yanmar 4JH4AE diesel. I am replacing the tachometer and need to configure the new unit. Does anyone know the pulse count from the alternator?See More
