    In search of a small machine shop - San Diego

    I need to cut some stainless and I need it cut squarely (that takes me and a cutoff wheel/grinder out of the discussion). I want to sandwich two hawse pipes together - one outside, one inside.

    MMSI from FCC?

    How many of you have actually done it? For the Washington and the southern California guys, it seems like a good idea since there is a high probably that you will will be communicating with a foreign port/vessel in foreign waters? I started to look at the paperwork (online forms) and they...

    Parker 25XX Cover - SOLD

    I really thought that this cover would work for my pilothouse (25' x 8' and a 30" bracket). It's actually 1 ft. longer than what they recommend and it's their wider version (for a 120" beam versus 108" boat). On my boat, it comes just to the rub rail and with the included tie downs, it stayed...

    Solas 13.25" x 17", 3-blade, aluminum, RH - USED

    Used once on my Yamaha 90 two-stroke. Bought new and used it on first sea trial of boat. 1. Pitch is too high (for me). I replaced it with a 13.25" x 17" Yamaha k-series OEM. The Yamaha prop runs about 400 rpm higher at WOT with the same load. So, be warned, this prop probably runs like an...

    Cummins Parts in Stock - San Diego

    Looking for a serpentine belt for my 6BT210. Tried Quivera and West Marine today. Coleman is closed (and they've been useless/rude the couple of times I've tried them on the phone). I'm going to try Napa & Auto Zone tonight. Any other suggestions on people to call? I'm trying to get on the...

    Custom Cover

    I got a quote for a custom cover for a center console (no t-top/arch/etc.) out of Sunbrella. Researched on here and it seems reasonable. I just wanted to confirm: Length 24 ft. + 2 ft swimstep Beam 9 ft $1,000 Seems to be in the ballpark. I tried pricing the fabric needed at retail...

    Early Departure

    I've been googling this but haven't found any answers: I heard that you can't leave Oceanside Harbor before sunrise. Is this true? Are there any restrictions on King Harbor? (I'll be borrowing a buddy's slip the night before but need to get out of there ~4:30A next weekend). Thanks!!!

    Pre fabbed T- tops

    Looking to put some shade on my 24 footer. The problem: the whole console needs to flip up to access the engine. So stand-offs or any sort of obstruction won't work. I really like the lines on the Stryker SG 300 (retail $999). I called them and they weren't very helpful with any work...

    Mounting LSS-1 Transducer

    I'm really interested in getting Structure scan but don't want to invest if it's not going to work well. I've done some poking around but can't seem to find proper mounting suggestion (yes, read all the Lowrance documentation). Anyone have pics of an i/o mount on a deep-v? 24 Degree deep-v hull...

    Any Way to Identify Transducer? (if you can't find markings)

    I've been looking at electronics packages and just realized that there's a transducer installed already in the hull (Former US Navy RIB). If this thing worked, it would save me some time/effort/$$$. Since all of you seem to know your depth finders/sonars, maybe you can help. Any way to tell...
