Re: Outboard on GB32?

WINDLASS AMP DRAW

1968 32' Woodie. Have had Windlass system "overhauled" after it stopped operating last fall. It is now operational - the only reference I can find as to its origin is a 2003 Work Order that references an "Elks electric Windlass". The electrician that worked on the restoration has...

Re: Length Over All GB 36 Classic

Re: Woodie bilge water tolerance

Always something down there, well at least on my woodie ~ never more than an inch. As JR indicates it's what's there that matters most. Just don't spill any beer to make it worse. 5 pumps ... impressive!!

Bob,
Against my better judgement, you win by attrition. Hopefully they accept the lowly CDN$. Cannot deny how much I have valued and benefited from the info wealth on this site. Thanks for your stewardship.

Re: GB32 zincs?

Bob,
Likewise, I shop quite extensively online. My issue with this is PayPal's involvement. Having been burnt once I will not give them, of all business entities, permission to disclose my personal data, period.

If you can PM me with a POBox or address I will happily send a cash contribution.
