Veranda replied to LOLA's discussion GPS Having Two
"We have 3 all together.  The main one is mounted at the helm.  The one at the helm replaced the second GPS.  The second one still works so we mounted it next to the bunk so I can use it as a drag alarm.  It also displays battery…"

Crushing romance....

Posted on December 13, 2010 at 2:38pm 2 Comments

December 11, 2010.

So when was the last time you saw someone perform an incredibly romantic act and you inadvertently crushed the moment? Let me start from the beginning….

There’s at least 40 cruising boats in the immediate area waiting for this forecast cold front to pass through. The weather is once again warm so why not have a little fun while we’re waiting.

Monument Island is a couple of hundred yards away so a cocktail hour was planned for this afternoon for…

Here's a picture I snapped of Veranda as she was slowly making way just north of Fernandina Beach.  There was so little wind that day and I hope things got better.

sam added a discussion to the group Beneteau 40 & 43

battery life

I installed Lifeline AGM batteries upon commissioning the boat when new. I used GPL 27T's on the engine start and bow thruster service. I used the 6 volt GPL 4ct's in the house bank ( total of six, 660 amp hour capacity)I just had to replace both of the GPL27T's. Boat was commissioned in July of 2008, so a bit over 7 years life obtained from those two. Hope to get at least a year or more from the house side, as they have been managed carefully.Just data for those interested,Sams/v LONGHAWKI B43…See More

"Even though I owned an 1980 O'Day 30, I can't answer that question.  However, a builder that screws in hand rails on a 30 foot cruiser would be asking for liability claims.  I don't believe O'Day would have done…"

"John, It depends.  What model O'Day are we speaking about?  Who put the rails on in the first place?  Are there white caps about 3/4 of an inch on the cabin overhead under where the handrails are?  If yes, the rails are…"

John commented on SeaKnots's group O'Day Corner
"Has anyone ever removed your handrails for resealing?  I have a leak and I'm not sure if I need to remove them from the topside or from below in the salon. "
