Re: Nice battery jump starter comparison

I also have a Battery Tender for maintenance (not for the Mac).

What tuned me into that company was a customer who collected Corvettes. He had ten that I saw. He had a Battery Tender for maintenance charging on each Vette.

Re: Nice battery jump starter comparison

This is what I purchased several years ago. None of my previous purchases were worth a d*mn. Battery Tender is a respected name. I have never seen any comparisons with other jumpstarters. https://i.postimg.cc/YLq4y2xr/23-D23-ACA-5-BF0-47-C8-8-B4-A-32-BB210-D79-B9.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/5jxFtpWh/2-...

Re: Single Axle Limitations?

In the above posts it has been recommended to check the age of your tires, but no source as to how to do this.

Re: Where do you buy replacements for the white cap liner plugs?

Check out BWYachts.com . They have some 2" caps on their site. They may be what you are looking for.

Woops :!: Tom beat me by four minutes. :D

Re: Cutting out for alcohol stove

I have a propane range top. I used a jigsaw with a fine hacksaw type of blade for the fiberglass. , but I also was able to place a piece of plywood on the top because the galley top on an M is recessed. I also dropped in a bar sink. I am not familiar with your boat. https://i.postimg.cc/wyVQ7YML/ADE...

Re: Nice review of a very nice sailing film

I stopped watching the review because there was to much blah blah blah.

I remember seeing the movie way back when, and very much enjoyed it. At the end, when they turn around to re-engage, was a great ending.

Re: Dimensions of 26M on its Trailer

If I have to be wrong, then this is a good topic. A different challenge is something that was brought up before, towing over the capacity of the vehicle. I dont’t remember who, it may have been Starscream, but if the max towing capacity is 4,000 lb, then if there is an accident, you may not be cover...

Re: Dimensions of 26M on its Trailer

I noticed that some posters have thought about renting an SUV, or a truck for the occasional long distance tow. To the best of my knowledge, no rental company allows their rentals to be a tow vehicle.

Re: SF Bay Puttering About

Democritus,

Welcome back, and a great post.

To all of the above posters,

Good information. As has been said many times, this is the friendliest forum.

P.S. Democritus, interesting choice of nom de plume. Is there a story behind it :?:
