Surveyor recommendation needed for upper Chesapeake bay

I am about 90% sure (that's to say me and the seller are within 10% on the price) that I'll need a surveyor for a tricab near the top of the Chesapeake. Any references would be appreciated. Since I'm a cash buyer and want to move things along quickly if we come to agreement, I just wanted to get a h...

http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1985/Trojan-36-Tri-Cabin-2478716/MD/United-States I made an offer on this boat. We are within $3k, the only problem is, it is slightly out of my price range. Because I wanted this sale to go through, my first bid was for all of the allowance money my Mrs. gave me to ...

Two things that are not obvious in the link. You need to cut away all of the unsound material so that your repair has a solid foundation to which to attach. Secondly, you need to grind a taper around the edge of the hole that is left. A 12:1 taper is in order, i.e., a 1/4" thick laminate needs a a 3...

Does your neighbor have a tricab to sell?

I had another near-miss on a tricab purchase today. Just like the last one, the owner claims to have not been told by the broker that I was coming, so naturally when I interrupted their cruise (they were not at the dock, even though I called the broker on Friday and said that I was coming Saturday, ...

- don't try to wipe away excess sealer from the glass, it will smear. Wait until it cures then trim it with a blade This is good advice. +1 not squeezing all of the sealant out from under the glass, and for adding a second layer of sealant on the outside of the joint too. You can also apply good ma...

forum formatting issue

When I view posts, I cannot see the right side of the page without going to the bottom of the page and using the slider button (?) to navigate over to the right side of the page. However, when I'm on other pages in the forum, such as the index, or the FAQs where I tried to find the answer to my ques...

Surveyor recommendation needed in northern Ohio

Can anyone recommend a surveyor that works on Lake Erie halfway between Toledo and Cleveland? I need to survey a 36 foot twin gas vessel. Someone who can do both hull and engines would be ideal. Otherwise, someone who specializes in hull only or engines only would work too. Boroscoping capabilities ...

Who needs raw water strainers?

I looked at a boat today that had a raw water strainer on the air-conditioning water intake, but had no strainers on the engine cooling system -- raw water cooled, not freshwater cooled. I thought that was wee bit odd. Am I deluded in thinking they are necessary? What do you think? Since back when t...

this morning at 7am i went and saw one of the space shuttles atop a 747 taking it last trip along cocoa beach heading for the Smithonian. I can attest that it made it! I pulled the kids from school to go see it. If it is not raining here tomorrow I'm going to fly over to Dulles and get a shot as I ...

I did hear back last night. The broker asked for phone number so he could have one of the prior buyers call me. Okay, here's a question for you. How do I know that it is the previous buyer, and not the broker's buddy pretending to be a happy customer, ask for him to fax me a copy of the title to the...

I looked at doing that from the upper Chesapeake. Well, in reverse actually. One of the tricabs I was looking at is in Michigan. It is only ONE THOUSAND MILES BY WATER to come see you. You're worth the fuel money, of course. I just don't have the time (or a boat).

Hello Stripermann2. I plan on keeping it at Colonial Beach, so that you can teach me how to work on boats! Okay, not really. I plan to keep it near Baltimore. Middle Riverish or something, kinda near Sir Aaron. Slips are reasonable (~$200/mo.), and it is 70 minutes from my house. Annapolis is pricie...
