Re: Suzuki DF60 2001 issues

Sounds like your external filter could be the issue; since it starts right up when you bypass it.

Can you take a picture of your fuel line - as complete as you can? Or sketch the arrangement, just so we are sure how it is all hooked up.

Have you changed your external filter lately?

Re: Yet Another Galley Mod

Really interested to see how you make sausage. Big hammer indeed. That's a beautiful sink. But wowser, it's big. I got this cheap bar sink at Lowes years ago. It's about the right size for the sliding galley. I also took out the cubbies and added doors. https://i.postimg.cc/VrPxW042/galler2.png htt...

Re: Suzuki DF60 2001 issues

First, disconnect the steering cable from the motor and turn it by hand to verify that it's the motor and not the steering system that's stiff. If it's old grease/corrosion in the motor bracket, this might work. I recommend you get a manual and see if there is a tension adjustment per Tomfoolery's p...

Yet Another Galley Mod

Finally got my material in, and got the pieces cut for my gimbal. After spending a few quarentine hours over-thinking it, I decided to try a two-axis setup. Most of the places I cruise are choppy if there's enough wind to sail, and, the boat rocks a bit when people move about on deck. Lastly, it's r...

Can we listen to cajan music? Last time I was in the area we stopped to see Elvis and chased fire fly's in Lake Charles and did all kinds of fun stuff.
Sure. Cajun, Bluegrass, Country, Rock, Jazz, or even Classical. Not into Rap or Hip Hop.

Re: Self tacking jib

I’ve been admiring this auto job setup on stingy sailor site. Looks easy to try out. https://stingysailor.com/2016/08/13/how-to-rig-a-self-tacking-jib-for-free/ Not sure that sail shape is going to do much for you. But, won't cost anything to try it. Let us know how it goes if you give it a try. I'...

Re: Electronic Flares Anyone?

Yeah, I can't remember but I thought Catigale was in New York (or maybe that's only Tom that's in New York) but I know that New York people often play jokes on people in California like people from Boston often play jokes on people from New York. Or is Catigale the guy that was the 'Reining King Co...

Re: Electronic Flares Anyone?

I thought Catigale was providing some new recipe for making flares like: Take your sharpie and open it so you can get to the ink liquid and then pour in 250 ML of crazy glue (I thought Methyl Ethyl Ketone was crazy glue :( ) - and then a big flaming explosion of fire will come out of the end of you...

Re: Electronic Flares Anyone?

The package says "meets USCG requirements...", so probably only US coast guard jurisdiction areas.

Rub off the old date with the MEK, then write a new (unexpired date) on the flares with the sharpie and steady hand.

How's the ballast gage coming along?

Welcome! Nice looking rig. Sounds like a manageable list of projects. It's great that your girlfriend enjoys being on the water.
