    Humorous statement on Wishful thinking for Sailboat pricing

    Just had to send this funny Craigslist Boat wanted add, it certainly puts sailboat costs into perspective. I had to read it twice, that is in inches not ft.

    San Juan 28 Rudder depth

    It sure doesn’t and I just came back from the marina to take a few pictures of the grid which is now on a lower tide, wish someone could confirm for me based on their own San Juan 28 because I cannot for the life of me find any specifications indicating this rudder depth only overall draft...

    San Juan 28 Rudder depth

    I am putting my boat on a tidal grid for the first time this Sunday morning to change zincs, touch up paint, and since this is my first time doing this, does anyone out there with a San Juan 28 know if the rudder will make contact sitting on the keel? I do not have any pictures of this profile...

    To Drone or not to Drone?

    He flew it from a beach located nearby, away from the crowds and I was told he can fly it up to 4 km away. I phoned him when we were leaving the marina and then minutes later it was there doing his filming. I have seen them launch from vessels on the internet but from land it is obviously safer...

    To Drone or not to Drone?

    Thought I would put this out there as I did have someone who is a “Professional” do this for me and thought it was kind of cool to see what others can see. A picture was just put on the Good Old Boat audioseastories and it was kind and certainly very special for me to see visually this picture...

    1979 San Juan Bilge question ?

    I purchased a 1983 San Juan 28 this spring and have been trying to get everything up to speed. It came with a bilge pump located by the keel bolts and I installed a low profile pump directly under the Yanmar Ym15 which is the low point by the engine. Found some leaks on topside and had to...

    Loss of power Yanmar 4jh4-hte

    I had a similar issue with my Yanmar 2 YM15, it would only run up to 1800-2000 rpm even while sitting at the dock. We checked the fuel filters, fuel supply, and bled the system to no avail. The Yanmar mechanic had a feeling it was not injectors but rather some blockage in the exhaust manifold...

    New San Juan 28 owner - propellor question

    Thanks for the info. But we did find the problem. The exhaust elbow was completely plugged which prevented the engine from going to the higher rpm, had to replace all the elbows and fittings and it revs up to the max. Rpm no problem. We are now working on cleaning up the DC wiring and found the...
