    Vaccinators!!!!! mount up

    I didn’t read the article but I’ve had COVID and am now fully vaccinated with the Pfizer. Honestly, the reason I got it was so I wouldn’t have to be quarantined again if I was exposed per the restrictions of my client. I’m the PM for a fast paced project for a pharmaceutical client that has...

    Speaking of California is anyone else troubled by this?

    Just got word that the latest one we offered on went for 788k. Listed at 715 we offered 735 and the thing was only on the market for like three days. Absolute madness. Where the fuck are all these people coming from that can afford this shit! [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Speaking of California is anyone else troubled by this?

    Talking with our agent I think it may have been because the selling agent was concerned it might not go through escrow. Possibly wanting to keep some of the other offers interested. There are people who are literally making offers site unseen due to how quickly things are going right now...

    Speaking of California is anyone else troubled by this?

    Pretty much everything said here is true. The market is completely nuts. We placed two offers on a house two weekends ago and lost out above ask with a 21 day close. We also knew the neighbors across the street who know the sellers and put in a good word for us. This past weekend we offered 25k...

    Dolores is still at Basin. I was in the slip next to Terry for about a year after I bought mine and now I’m two docks over. They are great boats [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I was already planning on redoing the cooling systems on both motors in the next few weeks with the help of a buddy who works on Yanmars. In fact I’ve got all the parts sitting and ready to go. Also have been researching how to check the turbo before totally removing since the incident. Going...

    Between my COVID quarantine on the boat and the water heater saga the boat didn’t get run as much as usual January through March. I pretty religiously run it outside the harbor and blow the turbos out every two weeks but it had only been harbor cruised since January. This past weekend the wife...

    Moment of truth and turn the new water heater on! All wired properly and beautiful...15 seconds later BAM breaker trips again. I’m dangerous as a marine electrician but not an expert especially on the 120ac side. Decided next step was replace the breaker in the panel. Guess what? Fixed the issue...

    At this point I had decided that the old water heater must be fucked and I was pissed so I threw that POS in the dumpster and ordered a replacement. Got the new one delivered and unpackaged and spent at least two hours trying to get the GD stainless protective film off. Whoever assembled this...

    Painstakingly removed the uncured bilge coat and carefully cleaned the amine blush off the new epoxy and put down several very thin new layers that cured! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    While taking my time removing the uncured bilge coat I took on the water heater rebuild. The problem that had been occurring was that the breaker was tripping. I made the assumption that the heating element was bad so bought a replacement for like 30 bucks and decided to put it in. Turns out to...

    Sanded a bit and cleaned with solvent then out down some one part bilge coat. It looked great but from a combo of cold temps, too thick of coats and the amine blush from the epoxy that I learned about later I had the privilege of stripping it all off after it didn’t cure... Sent from my...

    Let the drying process begin... Left it this way for about a week and also used a heat gun on several occasions to dry it out. Finally got it dry. There was a little bit of rot in the marine ply separating the lazarette and the bilge so I that out and epoxied everything back level. Sent...

    The WH is located under the couch down below and the way it’s situated there is no way to drain without soaking the lazarette it’s in and the forward bilge. After much swearing water everywhere and several minor injuries the GD thing was out! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Old thread but been going hard on the boat projects lately and figured I’d revive this thread rather than starting another. Getting the boat ready for opening day again but the real goal is some hard fishing this summer. First up - since I bought the boat about 5 years ago the water heater has...

    Where Will Boat/'Toon Pricing Go as the Pandemic Recedes?

    Right there with ya on this. My wife and I are 32 years old making good money with no kids and we are having a tough time getting an offer accepted. Just lost another one this week where I thought we were enough above asking to get it and someone out bid us and also supposedly had better terms...

    Are any of you guys running Zipwake Dynamic Trim Tabs?

    I don’t have them installed currently but I’ve been on a few boats with them and they are on my list. Biggest issue I’ve got holding it up is that I have a bolt on hull extension that the life guard boats use as a swim step. Need to figure out how to mount and run the wiring through the...

    Boat Fire

    Luckily we are both fine. He had cold like symptoms for about a week. I had body aches for a few days and some mild cold symptoms. The biggest thing for me was a lack of energy. I feel 100% now except for no taste or smell. First day back onsite for me today [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone...
