Re: DAYTRIPs Bertram 28 Strech

You're right, I redid my 170. It still has low hours on it - I kinda side tracked myself with the RV.

Re: DAYTRIPs Bertram 28 Strech

Wow, I wouldn't want that fuel bill. My Aquasport 230 takes 140gals and my RV takes 150gals so I am used to those shocks but 340 gals 8O
What are the black supports on the bottom of the fuel cell areas made of?

Good luck on the crossing - man, without the drone view I'm not sure it is possible. Fingers crossed.

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

I certainly understand weather patterns being an "amateur weatherman" and living in Florida, I have a good grasp on hurricanes. In the Northern Hemisphere the hurricanes (Lows) rotate counter clockwise - how do they rotate in the Southern Hemisphere? Barra - I can understand the "unpredictable trave...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

I have this anchor on my Cuddy boat - it's like a CQR but is made by Delta or at least was. Not sure if they are available anymore. It holds very well, digging deep, and holds unless I get a 180 change in wind and then it lifts and resets. I think I had that happen once. http://www.classicaquasport....
