Auzzee,

Good luck with your new install. Having just returned from an Abacos trip with Linnupesa drawing about 5'6" your extra foot of draft should not be a major problem IMHO. We did pussyfoot...

Auzzee, there should not be a major issue with this. If needed you could run a smaller pulley size on the unit, to increase the rpm and hence the current output.

Many people choose the heavier...

BoBeep

You have entirely too much time to pretty up your boat and I must confess these covers and bolsters do look very smart. The project I've been on was a new dodger/bimini of Sunbrella with...

Delatbabel

The connector loss would be so small as to be hardly measurable, quite likely much less than 0.2 or even 0.1db That means if it were an audible signal you'd be unable to detect any...

Auzzee has given a lot of pointers. I'd add that most cruisers do not take the bee-line to Oregon but would go more via the Alaska direction or even do some R&R there. Then catch the current and...

The bullet-proof glass is probably lexan plastic like the bank teller windows use.

It does expand and contract with temperature changes and that
may cause leaks in the long run, so it's best to...

Your design concept seems to be a bit fuzzy to me and in my opinion you should try to work on clarifying that. So far there is not the foggiest idea on what your planned electricite...

Woof, that is a pricey undertaking! Or over-taking from your funds.

I think the main problem is to ignite a good bang in just one cylinder. The flywheel effect of the crankshaft and everything else turning should then compress and fire the next one. Your impact idea...

Yes, both banks exist but one hit of lightning could change that in an instant. Florida is THE lightning state of the USA after all.

Starting a diesel without a battery?

I'm in need of a Plan B to start my 85hp (4.236 type ) Perkins in case either the battery or the starter fails.
