    1983 25' FARALLON Whaleback pilot house

    She was SOLD this evening!! They have just hauled her away. After several tire kickers and some low-ballers, she was sold at firm asking price! We held fast to our price. She will get a nice re-power and a new home. The buyer was a referral from this site. No plans on any replacement...

    Single to duo props

    With the recent rains, we had to put off the trip up north, but yea, the 290's would be great but the price of the 270's was pretty cheap like "free". The question is will the bolt pattern be the same (280 to 270) without any mods to them? If someone has a good running 290 for $500 or...

    Single to duo props

    I have a single 280 Volvo single prop now and want to swap out for a 270 duo-prop. Are the hole patterns the same? From what I understand they are within a couple of years apart....1982 (280) and 1984 (270). The duo-props are about 287 miles away from me and got a lead on it from a friend...

    Don't be fooled by this Craigslist Ad!

    Loading my boat???

    Like DoubleTroubleII posting (#2), I find that's the best way that's worked for anyone dropping the trailer down, from a newbie to better than average to anyone going solo. It also works with just about any trailer with the carpeted bunks and be it low or high tide and even with rollers. I...

    Thanks, Ben!! You're absolutely right about the older and proven hulls. Yea, those fishing rod holders are made from solid brass and clamped down with stainless steel screws and can tell you they have been on there for almost 10 years and still have not loosen up a bit. There's been many...

    Hi, Dan: She cruises at 18 knots and 22-23 knots WOT and that's fishing with a crew of 4-5 and put in about 100-110 gallons of fuel (to lessen the carrying load), fuel burn is between 1.25 - 1.50 mpg. On trips into mexican waters, we'll re-fuel once we're down at the Coral. The tow truck...

    1983 25' FARALLON Whaleback pilot house

    We decided to sell her after thoughts of doing a repower a few months ago as the motor is frozen (forgetting to winterize it back then, lesson learned the hard way). Rather than mess around with a repower, we'll put it out there for someone that would like to play with a project boat or if...

    Oh, anybody know anything about financing or getting a loan from a bank, they still being strict on loans? Prior to all the financial crisis, it was pretty easy to get bank financing. But if you guys happen to own the boat outright (aka free and clear), you might try the bank or better yet...

    2010 mexican private boating requirements

    No passport needed if you don't touch mexican soil and everyone stays on the boat. But it's not a bad idea to have passports on board or get one of those passport cards, which are easier to carry in your wallet or with your mexican fishing permit.

    Doggie poo-poo removal into the sewer

    I think this is a great idea (hope the video link works) when we have our crap patrol in the backyard and from our walks. I guess it must be legal to put dog waste into the sewer system which is better than in the landfills. The video shows what the product looks like. It's a large funnel...

    Defending a euipment and expired tag violation ticket

    The car was sold prior to getting the headlight replaced and the expired tags situation (in fact, the car didn't pass smog and the new buyer knows that and reflected in the signed bill of sale, sold "as is", as a parts car). So there's no proof of corrections as it was not done. We don't...
