I concur with your definitions, but disagree on your opinion to not use an autopilot to hold a heading only. It works great and when combined with regular navigation is not risky at all. Having to...

Not less fuel, about the same, actually, but only because I occasionally get on plane to load the diesels and blow out the soot, which is recommended by Caterpillar. The boat has a 1200 mile range so...

It has to be connected to a flux gate heading compass for a heading, and if you want to follow a route, a GPS too. If the boat gets off course or off heading, it applies opposite rudder to...

My boat came with auto-pilot and I thought it might be nice on occasion, until I started using it. WOW, it is awesome. I only use it to hold a heading (not to follow a route), but it dramatically...

The odds of all the cylinders having the the same low compression are really slim and it may just be a problem with the gauge or test technique. Normally, as the engine wears, you'd expect the range...

What decline are you referring to?

That was Carson Palmer, not Brady, BTW that was the impetus for the rule change you wrote of. That's why it's called the "Carson Palmer Rule". The injury...

Just like everywhere in NH, here's statistically more wind (and therefore more wind-driven chop) than in the Summer, but obviously it can vary greatly hour by hour and day by day. I hope you have a...

Going against the grain here and suggesting you stay at the south or east end of the lake instead of the north or west end where most of the action is, and use the boat to explore. The reason being...

The following is written solely with the subject of longevity as the main concern:

For I/O bowriders in that size range, would stay with top brands like Cobalt or Bryant. IMO, they have the best...

With 4000 Lbs to push and a single prop drive, you should be focusing on reducing prop slip and getting the engine to rev to or beyond the recommended WOT RPM with a typical load. Thus, I would...

IMO, vessel #2 in the description above is always the burdened vessel and cannot legally maintain a collision course. It should have slowed or turned to port to pass behind Barney. I don't believe...

Bottom paint could also mean it was wet-slipped in fresh water, but you are correct that bottom paint, at least on a trailerable boat, detracts from the value. On a boat that's too big to trailer,...

"Starboard quarter", in marine terms, literally means off the stern on the starboard side. As described, the other captain should have given way long before he/she put the boat on a collision course...

I don't really care about wakes, but I like math and boats and feel compelled to point out that if you take a 3 foot wake and halve it,, it's still a 1.5 foot wake, and easily 3 times the biggest...

A loooong time. Having a blast just getting used to the boat. We've put over 215 hours on it this season already.

Have a look at the Rocna Vulcan if the roll bar is an issue. That's my next anchor, specifically because the roll bar won't work in my pulpit.

They are similarly sized to any typical plow-style anchor and you should not have any issues getting it to fit into the locker on a 23 foot boat. I would guess it's no longer than a 13 lb Danforth...
