    Overly lighted up boats / ships have been run into at night accidently. NOT ON PURPOSE AT ALL...…….. The approaching boat driver ….THOUGHT ..,. the lights where SHORE LIGHTS. Driver Was at fault ?? or the boat caused the accident ?? N J summer time shore lights are very confusing in non perfect weather. Add in drinks drugs & clods or foggy return ?? Happens enough..………... Never anchor near ANY INLET at night. Risk is too high...…… Bugs are blown inland. & a boat crunches you. Been there Anchored & driving. Close enough both times. We yelled at each other. Done

    What are your 3 favorite brands?

    I actually favor no brands anymore...…… All are mostly 1 year of warranty. With all the expensive parts excluded. I am ready to move on to the next stage of my brain thoughts as I travel in time. I have fully died & traveled out of my body while watching Earth get smaller. Then be returned into my breathing body. There is no pain involved with a lack of Oxygen as the cause of death.

    I know what you mean on all points, my girl still looks good from a distance, but up close she is showing her age a little. She has her bangs and bruises, a little touch up paint here and there at the end of the season. Teak needs to be redone, I too am getting tired, it is a lot of work to do it right, but I'm not sure if I am up to it. So maybe I will lust keep up maintenance, put on a couple more trinkets and keep her looking good from 20ft away and going down the water. Denny.

    Engine Block Drain Plugs

    More boat information needed. Actually the general previous treatment is more important. Like a boat sunk or filled up with salt or fresh water by a hurricane ? There are thousands created like that every year in the last decade. Somebody has to make a buck on all of them.

    Stuart Do some areas permit sewage water & electric all year ? Taxes or rent rates ? It looks like a neat time warp to the past.

    No no, just the link to that thread, that's all and you did it so that was all I needed. When I get back home I'll post the pics I was talking about in that thread if it's ok with you? New England fall foliage which is along the same theme and the purple house near Hahvahd university with the flaming maple tree in front of it. Plus I have some other cool photos of farms and cows in the fall will probably be enjoyable for some to see. Might as well share things like that instead of doing nothing. Again, only if it's ok with you.

    I would venture that the Bahamas have more light than London...so it is hard to judge.

    On second thought. I'll pass. Need more open area and light inside. My 46' sloop had more area and it was 20' shorter...

    Engine Block Drain Plugs

    HEY HATEM, YOU GOT A VOLVO QUESTION!!!

    Engine Block Drain Plugs

    We've had three engine drain plugs "leak/break" in the last twelve months. Is this fairly common? Seems a bit excessive to me not to mention expensive to have them drilled out each time.

    Some times the right shade of blue can look green to some people. The rules of the road state too "Blue or red flashing lights are restricted to use by law enforcement vessels only" Plus "Vessels may use other lights while underway as long as they can not be mistaken for lights specified by these rules or interfere with a proper lookout." In other words, not be mistaken as Nav lights.

    5 - NO!!! Red lights are used to protect your night vision and altering them may be illegal... But then I doubt you will have any night vision with all the lights you are proposing to add. 6- Don't do it. Never understood peoples need to glow their boats like a christmas tree...When on the hook at night unless more light is needed we only use the small light at the steps into the cabin. I like to see the stars. The GF likes to have a couple battery powered candles out as well...
  23. Not quite sure which link you're referring to. If you mean the link to the original post: If you mean the link to each photo, I don't know. I process them through postimage.org and then copy paste them here. I don't take note of the actual address of each photo. Post'em and leave'em.

    Replacement rocker switches?

    My dash is in pieces now in my garage, working with NEWWIREMARINE.COM who sold me the switches and they are building the three new panels that comprise my dash as I’m not only replacing the switches but also upgrading electronics, radio etc. and have holes that won’t be covered by the more modern equipment plus the panels were really ratty. I’d suggest you go to their site and see the switch covers and also their dash replacementS, mine will be heavily customized so will be sending them templates. I don’t have pricing yet as I’m still scoping out everything but they say they will make cutouts for everything including the switches with their new covers. I’ll post pictures as this saga continues but I’ve attached a “Before” picture for reference

    And thanks to the apparent moderation going on that deleted the unnecessary and totally uncalled for attack out of nowhere, including my response and your cheering response. So it's a good thing to see that there seems to be someone looking out and keeping the unnecessary postings out of the way. So I hope it's ok to thank whomever he or she was who did that. There is nothing wrong with discussing issues and especially harmless shop talk on a thread that has a lot of potential for many to learn from.

    Just cause we have a bunch of airplane lovers

    Touch/feeling is such an important human sense that it's very disappointing when that opportunity is rejected. I always opened my plane up and let folks crawl around it when I have the opportunity to show it off. It's pretty easy to scan all the switches to make sure they are in the right place before we get moving again. Folks will bag on the 4th generation fighters (F-15/16/18), but there's a amount of capability enclosed in those old designs.

    Just cause we have a bunch of airplane lovers

    LOL! Where did I ever get Cruise Control from?! Getting old, Mikey! looooooool! Yes, of course, Super Cruise thank you for the correction. You know all the pics from the Rhode Island Quonset air show I always post pics from? Almost all the pics I've posted on this thread since you opened it were from that airshow which they hold yearly except last year, they cancelled it which was a shame! But some of the other ones like the one of the B-2 spirit and the close-ups of the B-52 were from another show at Westoever airbase in western MA which takes a couple of hours to go to but we prefer Quonset because there are HUGE (I wouldn't say security differences between the two, but lax, maybe?). At Quonset, they actually allow you to touch the aircraft that are on display, and these are actually active jet fighters like the F-16s, F-15s and the F/A-18 Super Hornets unlike the Westover show which each AC is cautioned off a good distance away etc. So I love it when we go to the Quonset air show because of this on-hands experience we get to have with the aircraft on display and I went through this whole diatribe to make my point which is that because of this freedom they give you, I have actually gotten really close to the F/A-18 Super Hornets from several US Navy Carrier Groups that are on display and I looked into the inlet cavity to see that S-shaped duct and it was amazing!!!!! I have some pics of it where I almost, almost got into the inlet just to see where the engine was but I didn't, of course, for obvious reasons LOL! I mean, they allow you to get up close and personal to a certain extent but if they see me climbing & crawling into the air intake of a WORKING F/A-18 and taking pics, I think I'd be in handcuffs in seconds lol. But I was very impressed at how they designed the air intake ducting on the Super Hornet which means that even on that bird, it has some form of stealth to it. You can include the canted V-stabs and maybe a few other things but that just goes to show you how the US makes a huge effort even on its legacy fighters and not just the new, fancy, all-stealth ones to make them as "low observable" as possible. How could you not love this stuff?
