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.

Sold the Regal 3 months ago and replaced it with a Tollycraft 44 CPMY that we keep on the ocean based out of Hampton River Marina. We plan to sell our house next Spring and start cruising the...

I hate to be negative, but really, how could one possibly come up with an objective on the water test for a boater? There are too many variables in boats, wind, and wave conditions to make it...

You likely just need the starboard side sender disc, but it may be as simple as a disconnected wire in the engine compartment. The wires to the sender and solid black and have bullet connectors. It...

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...

Not if they hit lightly enough to just "roll" a blade or three, as described. That sounds like a low speed touch and that would not do anything to the driveline, in my experience.

Would be a great time to upgrade to stainless steel. They are far more resilient to rock strikes and have better performance (assuming they are appropriately selected for the boat, engine, and use).

Great point.

Maybe their parents inherited the means from their parents, or maybe the young folks in that fun video earned the means themselves. Maybe it's a group one-week rental they all saved...

Not carrying an anchor seems like a really bad plan for a vessel like that. That thing should have a huge anchor and all-chain rode, IMO.

Its obviously man-made and has boats in it already. It's a safe bet that it's navigable, otherwise those boats would not be there. Also, people don't typically go to all the trouble of digging a...
