BAHAMAS FUEL

If you happen to be crossing to the Abacos/  Bahamas  be careful on where you pick up Fuel.  Even the most respected places have BAD Fuel.  Why?  if they just received a delivery 2 or 3 hours before you got there and your one of the first one or two boats to get fuel,,,,, then you get the mess that was stirred up in the bottom if their tanks.  ASK..they will tell you and better yet;  wait for a Big Sport Fish to fill up then get your fuel.  If you cross and check in at Old Bahama Bay...... …

Rob, I was looking at your filter change gage. I was wondering if I can use this with a gas set up?

"Well at least you’ve narrowed it down to the Genoa. I doubt here’s any issue with the hull or running gear. Nor do I think the slight list you have will have an impact either as many boats have the same based on how full the water and or…"

"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck Mike"

"It is only when sailing close-hauled. Unfortunately, this is the only course, where performance really matters. I‘m going to perform two tests: - Sailing with genoa only (track cars on the same position). In this case any (unequal) trim…"

"Our 43 had a shaft drive. Depending on how much water or fuel that was in her she would sometimes have a very small imbalance. Nothing that would cause her to sail unevenly. Do you have the problem on all points of sail? Is it more on any particular…"
