I just added an AIS transceiver to my boat. I always feel uneasy in the company of large vessels, especially at night and their running lights are not discernable. I have radar, but it does not do a good job computing the course and speed of other vessels, so the AIS will help there. But the truth is, I love electronic gadgets for the boat!

B43 Windlass Drainage

Doing some maintenance on my B43 Quick Antares windlass this year. After removing the windlass, I knew instantly that I should have been doing this at least ever other year.  The windlass was preforming weak and slow with a noise which made me think the motor brushes or a bearing was going out, thus the reason for removing it.What I found upon removal was a tremendous amount of salt and sand on the top part of the gearbox, literally packed in. Upon cleaning everything up, luckily all bearings…See More
