    Hey Rod
    Thanks! I am not going to rebuild. Going with a brand spankin' new drop in replacement WB. The concept of having no generator would haunt me, just from a sense of "incompletelness." No way I'd leave it in there dead. Might not get to it til the end of the season but we'll see.

    Ron bought this boat at a substantial discount to the market for other 380DA's simply because the previous owner didn't want to replace the generator. This one of the cleanest and nicest 380's out there and a new generator will add several times the actual cost of a new generator to its market value.

    And, Ron.......that end of the season business will be just like "I'm taking a year off before I do something about a replacement boat". We know how long that lasted. Go ahead and order the Westerbeke so your family can be comfortable and you won't have to worry about run down batteries on the hook.

    Hey Ron,

    I just saw your updates. What a great news, I'm very happy for you. The boat looks like new, can't wait to see her. I'm sure the crew will love her.

    Best of luck with the new ride.

    P.S. I'm totally on the same page with Frank regarding the genny. It's best to deal with the hassle once and get her all done now for the new live and service for your crew.

    Ron,

    His texting plan is pay by the letter. He's used too many "d's" and must now conserve them.

    The Dodo (Raphus cucullatus) is an extinct flightless bird that was endemic to the island of Mauritius, east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. Its closest genetic relative was the also extinct Rodrigues Solitaire, the two forming the subfamily Raphinae of the family of pigeons and doves. The closest living relative of the Dodo is the Nicobar Pigeon. A white Dodo was once incorrectly thought to have existed on the nearby island of Réunion.
    The Dodo's external appearance is evidenced only by paintings and written accounts from the 17th century. Because these vary considerably, and because only a few sketches are known to have been drawn from live specimens, its exact appearance in life remains a mystery. Similarly, little is known with certainty about its habitat and behaviour.[SUP][3][/SUP] Subfossil remains show the Dodo was about one 1 metre (3.3 feet) tall and may have weighed 10–18 kg (22–40 lb) in the wild. It has been depicted with brownish-grey plumage, yellow feet, a tuft of tail feathers, a grey, naked head, and a black, yellow, and green beak. It used gizzard stones to help digest its food, which is thought to have included fruits, and its main habitat is believed to have been the woods in the drier coastal areas of Mauritius. One account states its clutch consisted of a single egg. It is presumed that the Dodo became flightless because of the ready availability of abundant food sources and a relative absence of predators on Mauritius.
    The first recorded mention of the Dodo was by Dutch sailors in 1598. In the following years, the bird was preyed upon by hungry sailors, their domesticated animals, and invasive species introduced during that time. The last widely accepted sighting of a Dodo was in 1662. Its extinction was not immediately noticed, and some considered it to be a mythical creature. In the 19th century, research was conducted on a small quantity of remains of four specimens that had been brought to Europe in the early 17th century. Since then, a large amount of subfossil material has been collected from Mauritius, mostly from the Mare aux Songes swamp. The extinction of the Dodo within only about a century of its discovery called attention to the previously unrecognised problem of human involvement in the disappearance of entire species. The Dodo achieved widespread recognition from its role in the story of Alice in Wonderland, and it has since become a fixture in popular culture, often as a symbol of extinction and obsolescence. It is frequently used as a mascot on Mauritius.

    Not sure I follow that comment. I wish that I was in my slip last year. That would have been an improvement.
    But, if your looking to jump on Joe's bandwagon, it's not my slip that I am always in. It's at Watch Hill across the bay where I spend most weekends. I dock there with a group of friends most weekends & spend the days playing on the shores of the Atlantic with the kids. Nights are bbq's & adult beverages around the marina as the kids play manhunt with their friends.
    Joe likes to bust my chops because I don't run the boat for many hours or burn fuel at the alarming rate that he does. But, a dock queen she is not!!

    HHmmm.......I thought that might be it but, I didn't poke myself in the eye . That was from the fiberglass dust getting under my contact lens when I was cutting the dash to install my backup plotter. So I'm still not sure what that meant. :huh:
