    Beautiful boat. Not many of the 520s with the large cockpits out there. Good luck with the sale.

    So let's hear about and see your cars.

    I picked up this Bronco used a few weeks ago. 2022 Badlands Sasquatch. 19k miles. I am impressed St. how well it drives down the highway with 35’s on it.

    My boat is out of the water and accessible in Falmouth MA till April if you could find someone near Falmouth to take measurements and make a mold for you you are welcome to use my boat. I am not sure if they could do it installed or not. The few boat yards near me that I think could manage to...

    External Strainer install

    I agree that it might just prolong it but maybe that would get me through a night or day. I was also thinking the larger hose might let the seaweed make it to the strainer instead of clogging the hose. I have the most issues on the moorings at Edgartown as a lot of seaweed come through the...

    External Strainer install

    I have been thinking about something like this as well, but I hesitate to do it for all the reasons you mentioned. I was thinking maybe a better cure is too enlarged the thru hull to 1 1/2” hose and get a larger strainer with 1 1/2” inlet so that it can handle larger quantities of seagrass and...

    What causes you the most anxiety while on the water under power?

    For this reason, I hold the dinghy down to the swim platform with turnbuckles and quick release snap shackles with a T handle on it. I can have the dinghy released from the swim platform in about 20 seconds with no tools.

    Opinions on Walkerbay

    I have a walker bay 340 generation and love it. I’ve had it for five years now and put about 160 hours on it. The steering has been an issue which I just replaced with hydraulic steering. It was stiffen up quite a bit. Other than that it has been great. I have a 40hp Honda on mine and...

    2023 Haul Out

    I winterized genny and all other systems at the dock a few weeks ago. I came out on last Thursday, winterized the mains and put up my shrink wrap frame same day. Today they came and shrink wrapped. All put away for winter. Sorry about the pics. I can’t get them to load correctly from my iPhone.

    Yes, I did notice a difference. I added the grease fittings because the seacocks were a little stiff when I bought the boat. The grease helped loosen them up.

    good point. I added grease fitting to my Groco seacocks and they get greased as part of my spring start up. Groco makes a grease for them that they are very proud of but won't hurt the seals

    Here’s my winterization checklist. You can ignore the items you don’t need to do being in heated storage but there are some items on the list that could help you.

    They are engine control components. I can start/stop the engines from them and they have breakers on them for the engines. The box below is the controller for a bilge dry system I installed. It is ok but doesn’t work as well as I was hoping.

    My new winterizing set up. I used to use a 15gal tub with a 1” tube going to the strainer. I would have to block it up high in front on the engines and frantically pour more antifreeze in the tub to keep up with the engines. Also I had to muscle all that antifreeze into the front of the...
