Hull and Rig / Re: CSY 37 tall rig, shallow draft, performance
« on: November 01, 2014, 06:57:51 PM »
I have a tall rig shallow draft 44. I am not sure about the 37 but my 44 is one of the most stable boats I have ever been off shore on! These are all big heavy boats with lots of stability. If it starts to roll you can always throw out a little sail to dampen it.

As for sailing ability - the tall rig and shallow draft make it side slip when going into the wind, but as we all know "gentlemen don't go to wind". On a beam or broad reach it does amazing! I have a cutter rig so the stay sail helps a lot. Even when motoring. I can get an extra knot fairly close to the wind.

Count me in - what day is it?

If you are on board running the heater you really don't need to do much. I was thinking that you were going to leave the boat

The files are now in DropBox.

Ps, how do you turn it off? I will be in the Bahamas for the next few months and would like to turn off DropBox automatic updates.

The water there should help significantly to keep things from freezing. I would definitely shut all thruhulls and drain the fresh water from the system. If you are plugged into the dock you can leave a light bulb (incandescent) burning in the engine room and the cabins.

I would also check with other owners in the area or the marina people to see what they recommend.

Will your boat be in or out of the water?

I am getting ready to head down the coast next week (end of October). Anyone heading that way give me a shout.

Systems / Has anyone installed a washer dryer?
« on: October 06, 2014, 12:54:35 PM »
No I have not installed a washer or dryer. I still use a bucket and a boat brush if I really need to clean clothes away from the dock.

I don't have a chart table in the back cabin. I have two hanging locker where the chart table is usually located. I would not do away with the hanging locker.

Gang - I am planning on taking my boat to the SSCA Gam in Melbourne in November of this year and then on to the Bahamas. Anyone else heading this way? I will probably hang around the Abacos (Manjack, Treasure, and Marsh). Yell at me on the curiser's net if you come through. I am on Grace.

BTW - It is called 'wintering' in the islands. Sounds so much better than screwing off.

Is this what you have ?

Mine plugs into a wall outlet on the boat. It will protect you under generator as well as on the dock. Here is what I have Grace's Power monitor. I also have a 110 volt and 110 volt amp meter. They are blue seas panel mount.
