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...
"Sam, since I too have a similar noise I'm thinking about how to isolate whatever it may be that's causing it. Have you tried turning the thruster battery off? Turning off the engine battery which should shut off the windlass? I'd try…"
We are taking out cat Genny to the Bahamas this year and I am fearful of the beautiful white leatherette salon cushions. If anyone has had cushions made could you please give us a name of the maker. We can make them ourselves if we had the dimensions but would be happy if there was a custom supplier. The boat is in the Abacos and we are in Halifax so we can't go and measure.Many thanks, JohnSee More
