Re: 2019 October Rendezvous

Early November is the tail end--playoffs--of our tennis season. Busy morning of Nov. 9th. but otherwise available. On paper, available Nov. 16-17. Rain anywhere along the playoff path throws calendar into chaos.

Regarding location, I'd vote with SweeTART's 6'6" keel in mind. :D

Re: 2019 October Rendezvous

Given last trip to Treasure Island, I should vote for anywhere we do NOT anchor out. Ha!

If timing right, we are keen on trip while the weather is this good.

Re: F35 (Pedrick) Windlass

Upload of pics is 256kb? Too small. My personal FTP space is currently a mystery to me. Will try again after a bit of pondering. We have a small footprint Lewmar.

Re: F35 (Pedrick) Windlass

Steve,

We have a smaller footprint windlass installed on our F35 Pedrick. Will search for pictures and post later tonight or shoot a photo tomorrow.

Which reminds me of our humongous splice between rode and chain that won't travel smoothly through said windlass.

There's always something... :roll:

Re: Freedom 28 bilge pump

To my knowledge, your bilge pump should be a direct 'hot' wired device. Bypass your DC panel altogether. Just in case. Spring a leak, it runs and keeps your boat afloat until someone hears the alarm or...

You do have an alarm to your high water bilge float?
