    Electrasan odor question

    I have noticed a distinct odor in the area of my boat where the electrasan unit is after flushing the head. Last winter I replaced the head and all the hoses, thinking they were the problem. There is no liquid leaking anywhere. I am thinking maybe a shaft seal on one of the motors is allowing...

    How does a prop shaft break?

    Discovered my prop shaft sheared off. We motored for about a half hour, no abnormalities . Then sailed about 15 miles, dropped sails and started engine, put into forward and no go! Had a powerboat friend tow me back to mooring ball, where I dove in and verified there was no prop. Got hauled...

    Alternator wiring question

    From what I've read on this site, it seems most prefer to run the alternator output to the house battery. This makes sense. On another thread, someone stated you could connect the wires from an ACR to the 1 & 2 posts (battery side of course ) on your battery switch to save "lug pile up" on your...

    First Chesapeake Bay sail of 2013

    Had Miss AdVenture out for the first weekend sail of 2013, an overnighter at Still Pond. It sure is tough looking at the dark, dirty water of the Chessy after spending all that time in the beautiful blue/green water in the Keys, but water is water and it's still sailing...
