Re: diesel air heater (100.--), who installed?

From what I can tell, the Wallas heater pulls combustion air in and pushes exhaust out of the same sleeved through-hull. Am I right? That's pretty cool. I wish the chinese heaters did that - one less hole to put in a boat that way. But they really aren't made with boats in mind I think, since they p...

Re: diesel air heater (100.--), who installed?

Jeff, your Wallas and other air heaters sound awesome. Do you have any pictures? Would love to see your install. I found pictures from several other folks searching for "wallas 1300" online, but would love to see one specifically for a Mac. Looks like Wallas also makes a diesel water heate...

Re: Leaking Ballast Tank Idiocy - 26X

Wow. Thanks for sharing. Sounds terrifying.

Those holes you drilled in the floor - what did you intend them to drain the water into?

Re: diesel air heater (100.--), who installed?

I've been on the fence about putting in a heater like this for a while. I think for now I'm going to tip toe into heat with one of these Mr. Heater Portable Buddy heaters.

Seems like they work well and you can take them to other places for other uses too

Re: Max26x Repower: Suzuki DF60A vs DF60AV

I have a Suzuki DF60A and have loved it. I've only used it in fresh water. I've been servicing it myself and getting parts online from https://www.brownspoint.com/

Very fuel efficient. Similar feedback to what was given about noise, etc above. I believe mine is a 2012 or 2011 model year

I'm thinking I need a decal for Luna Azul.

Where did you get it?
I ended up getting it from this guy's store on Ebay: https://www.ebay.com/str/vintagetoycenter . He has some odd stuff in there though :)

Re: Attitude change on reefing

Are you guys reefing while under sail, and if so, what's your procedure? Typically I motor upwind when RAISING the sail because otherwise the battens get caught in the sailpack jacklines if there is lateral wind, but I'm not sure I always remember that I can motor out of trouble when needing to ree...

Russ, with that picture you posted I have some questions :D You've got an :macm: right? There are some things there that I've not seen on an :macm: before. Going from right to left, I assume that first line is your furling jib/genoa. Looks like the next line over is a means to raise and lower that -...
