No, I will stick with the one set. -- Todd D -- 4/16/2014, 2:14 pm

Drowning Party! -- Charlie Stillman -- 4/16/2014, 3:35 pm
I see quite a few lobstermen rowing out to their boats facing forward... -- Todd D -- 4/16/2014, 2:34 pm
I see. The forward thwart does need to be back a bit. Here's a Layley tender. -- Tom Young -- 4/16/2014, 2:58 pm
Wonderful job! -- Westcoaster -- 4/16/2014, 5:10 pm
You're actually going to put that in the water? -- Steve on S/V Brendon -- 4/16/2014, 6:34 pm

The winter that will not die!!! Was under 40 here this morning, on the Texas coast!!! -- Charlie Jones, S/V Tehani -- 4/15/2014, 5:44 pm
Going down to minus 10 tonight here... that's 14 in the antiquated system. -- Blye -- 4/15/2014, 6:13 pm
EXACTLY why I live WAY down here.We may get a Hurricane every once in a while, but snow up there is always-grin -- Charlie Jones, S/V Tehani -- 4/15/2014, 8:01 pm

78 - Ugh. That is way too hot! -- Todd D -- 4/16/2014, 2:35 pm
I would agree if it was on the Right Coast - because it would be 80% humidity too -- DDW -- 4/16/2014, 6:25 pm
ALMOST warm enough for shorts, but not quite -- Charlie Jones, S/V Tehani -- 4/16/2014, 4:06 pm
A shout out to MaineSail -- Max Fletcher -- 4/15/2014, 3:19 pm

ABSOLUTELY ! Strong words Max, and well deserved ... -- John -- 4/15/2014, 11:21 pm
Indeed, he's helped me with several projects in recent years -- Paul D -- 4/16/2014, 4:12 am
Great resource for me as well... -- Rodd L -- 4/16/2014, 6:08 am

Max... -- Maine Sail -- 4/15/2014, 11:07 am
Obviously, the Dorade box must be hard to remove. -- Tom Young -- 4/15/2014, 9:34 am
The dorade is fiberglass and molded into the hull -- Max Fletcher -- 4/15/2014, 10:25 am
I've used epoxy syringes quite a bit with good luck -- Dan y -- 4/15/2014, 11:42 am
Epoxy alone would not... -- Brian Woloshin -- 4/15/2014, 12:43 pm
Yes Brian, heading out early June -- Max Fletcher -- 4/15/2014, 2:48 pm
The Azores are fantastic -- John P -- 4/15/2014, 11:33 pm
Hi John -- Max Fletcher -- 4/16/2014, 4:32 am
Hmm, that makes me think you should do something else... -- DDW -- 4/15/2014, 5:40 pm
I'll try to get a pic, DDW, but it's really not that bad -- Max Fletcher -- 4/15/2014, 6:33 pm
Could it be coming through the riser inside the dorade box? -- SG -- 4/15/2014, 6:45 pm
Nope, definitely thru a small void in the bonding -- Max Fletcher -- 4/16/2014, 4:17 am
Put a polyethylene tube on the end of the caulking tube... -- DDW -- 4/15/2014, 9:33 am
The butyl tape from MaineSail is very easy to work with -- Max Fletcher -- 4/15/2014, 6:46 am
I think the caulk would work better -- Larry - DH -- 4/15/2014, 8:20 am
might be difficult to get a caulking gun through that hole though -- Charlie Jones, S/V Tehani -- 4/15/2014, 9:32 am
Good post, good blog... -- GeneC -- 4/15/2014, 6:03 am
"Their" dream, or "HIS" dream...? (grin) -- Jon Eisberg -- 4/15/2014, 6:54 am
Jon, you've never had "moments" on a passage? -- GeneC -- 4/16/2014, 9:00 am
Quite a financial set back to get over. I hope they still have the dream. -- Tom Young -- 4/15/2014, 9:36 am
i'm not sure it was 'they', although -- Dan y -- 4/15/2014, 11:50 am
Lots of folks have stepped up to help... -- Jon Eisberg -- 4/15/2014, 1:11 pm
Butyl caulk is very messy -- Larry - DH -- 4/15/2014, 5:55 am
I would think butyl would work well -- colemj -- 4/15/2014, 5:34 am
Pretty slick! -- DaveEvans -- 4/15/2014, 5:33 am
out of stock -- Craig Cook -- 4/15/2014, 5:13 am
why not... it isn't a syncronous motor, nor anything that relies on frequency. -- GeneC -- 4/15/2014, 5:52 am
Electrician advice -- Craig Cook -- 4/15/2014, 6:25 am
He is wrong BUT... -- Brian Woloshin -- 4/15/2014, 6:36 am
Half the power might be a good thing -- Larry - DH -- 4/15/2014, 8:48 am
that is disappointing -- Craig Cook -- 4/15/2014, 11:07 am
He might not be completely wrong... -- Todd D -- 4/15/2014, 2:21 pm
I don't think there is a marine water heater with an electronic thermostat. -- JDM -- 4/16/2014, 5:25 am
