Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

How many times has someone here said “folks will stop to you to talk about a JM boat”? Looks like that truth is paying off in a positive way!

Dang it! I feel like I’ve just realized we are at the last chapter in a favorite novel!

Re: Panga question for Jacques

One of the reasons for a kicker engine malfunction due to bad fuel (water, particle, etc). You would not want that going into the “oh crap” motor. If you do feed into the kicker (and to prevent issues with main) make sure you have easy to see/inspect clear filter and separator. That way you can stay...

Re: AD14 - Ciulnita

I guess I'm the contrarian here. other than "do it right" I don't see what the issues could possibly be with cable clamps. This is not a high performance boat with oversized sails. Using cable clamps is inexpensive, easy to source, and easy to setup/repair. What am I missing?

I will attest that Texas can not match Seward’s 10k’ mountains rising from the sea. Don’t get me wrong, Texas has some hills but nothing that goes from 0-to-10k straight up from the water. That place is glorious.

There’s no fish there, but it’s beautiful.

You guys can build outside 9 months out of the year if needed. Here you need a shop at least 9 months a year.
9? I'm in South Texas Probably closer to 11 haha
12mo for me. Just need to be less lazy.

Re: Classic 21 Express "Sweet Esmaralda"

Bah! If I had a set of brass ones (and the wife let me) I’d go over there and sail those things just to keep the tradition alive. But, as Fuzz can attest, my brass gets green when the seas get lumpy. Damn those things would make for one roomy live on. Too bad the worms would eat them where it’s warm...

Cleanup in aisle “couch”.

That makes me all kinds of tingly in places a boat probably shouldn’t make tingle. That fat beam has to make for a lumpy ride. Any idea how many tons it holds? Still active on the fishing grounds?
