Swap Meet / Original CSY Crosby Cold Plates
« on: November 13, 2013, 12:09:00 am »
I have the original Crosby cold plates as we have installed dual Frigoboats.  I'm not sure if these are worth anything.  Does anyone know or might be interested in them?


Hull and Rig / New Windlass Installed
« on: November 12, 2013, 11:27:40 pm »
We have the new windlass system installed , what a job!  This is a 2900 lb Hector windlass from Italy.  We've heard very good things about them and the cost is very competitive compared to Maxwell or Lewmar and a much stronger unit per $.  The price we received on this unit was 100's less in fact than competitors models that were considerably smaller.  

We have 2 lockers up front and have ordered a single piece of 300' BBB for our main rode and the windlass but would like to get a rope rode in the front locker for backup or if needed.  Any suggestions for strength, weight, cost effectiveness etc?  Experiences?  Also best recommendation for a swivel for our new chain and anchor? and for rope rode.  Models? Size? etc.


I've also put a detailed description of our whole system with pictures in our workshop on our site if anyone is interested.

Forum Information and Problems / Name change and no posts

Is there any way to change our displayed profile name?  It also says we have no previous posts, I'm assuming this is a result of not having the same profile name?


General Discussion / Wow!

I see a lot has changed on the site.  We have been back in Annapolis for a couple months now in the middle of a all systems refit and hope to departing mid November south on a 10,000 mile cruise.  

Thought we would drop in to see what's happening.  I'm sure you all know how many hours a day this entails and how keeping up online seems to fall to the wayside.  We have also began slowly posting details and pictures of what we are doing and/or encountering on our website to possible help others as well.  

I also thought we would just send a post to lend any owners a hand with our experience and/or experiences with this refit that may need some help or have any questions.  We personally have had help from Sherry in the past and it really is great to have aid from others experiences.

Hope everyone is doing great!

Have a Great Day!
