All of what @kloudie1 indicated... Also have you checked the float switch in the bilge.
Wires in the bilge corrode. The junk that finds its way to the bilge, jamb the switch causing a failure. Sometimes it is the simple things.
Otherwise get your DVM out and start checking the wires for power...
@Joe nailed it. :plus:
On my 35ftr I manage the halyard at the mast. Prep the sheets and tack, everything on fore deck. Hoist sail in sleeve behind the main. Ready the sheets. Hoist the sock. Head for the helm. Set the course, trim the sail sit back and enjoy the beautiful colors.
That is great news Heather.
I have been reading the book ”The Self Sufficient Sailor “ by Lin and Larry Pardy. In case these names are unfamiliar, they are a couple who adopted a cruising life 40 years ago, before YouTube.
The reason I share is the quote Lin made. It is about choosing...
I feel pain in the mourning that envelops you and your family. At the same time I feel the joy you share in recounting the life experiences of your father. Thank you for giving of these.
May you and the family tear asunder the shrouds of grief and rejoice in the lasting memories of the...

That is a good idea.
I was going to suggest a slow grow mutual fund. but that will work.
Additionally, you might consider taking the money you save each month from not having to pay moorage, repairs, budget for new/replacement gear and put that away each month in the same pot.
Worry not... I'll set up the cannons off Clatsop Spit... Lewis and Clarke had a fort there in the day... We will great you as you sail past the "Grave Yard of the Pacific"...:yikes:
It will be a friendly cannon salute to mark your passage.
Looking up the cost of the Kuuma I came across this in our Seattle store.
They ship free for orders over $99. It may be worth a couple of Big Mac's to check it out.
It may also be worth your consideration to check out the Isotherm heaters. They...
A bit overstated. My diver shows up 3 times a year. $1.35 per foot. That includes annual zinc replacement.
Is this with you doing the prep/painting or having it done for you? Does that include your Haul costs? Your stay on the hard costs?
Good paint (depending on brand) costs about $250 TO...
