Thanks Zeehag. The tiger is always beeing kept varnishing and varnishing... the oDay has a new Betamarina motor boat. Time to come down to Costa Rica and do some sailing from Puerto Azul. Check their webpage. Good and fair winds from Costa Rica.
That's the way to live. I'm convinced. I had planned on taking my power boat to the keys to live on there. Now I'm looking for a liveaboard sailboat to base there and cruise.MAybe we'll bump into each other (not literally of course) in one of those bodies of water.
I sailed from the time I was twelve until I was in my late forties. Business took up to much time, and I found I could enjoy a powerboat if I had even a hour to spend. Now that I'm semi-retired, I need to get back to sailing and living aboard where it's always warm. I have my eye on a Seafarer 38 ketch on the east coast of FLorida. If it works out, I'll be down there soon. Fair winds and following seas to you...
"Yes LI was a washing machine but east of Block over to Buzzards Bay was downright nasty. I'd have enjoyed it more if we could have stopped to smell the roses but this was all about getting there so it was long days."
"If the water is moving back and forth with the diaphragm movement, the check valve is stuck open. This may not require a new diaphragm if the check valve just needs to be freed. The link below is from Whale on the rebuild, hope it…"
