Boat #9: 1985 Niagara 35

That’s right.  It’s our very own s/v Plaintiff’s Rest, post re-rig, re-fit and repairs.  I will also show you each of the features on our boat that Phillip and I believe make it a great cruising vessel from engine access to batteries to the sump box and more.  If any of you out there are boat-shopping right now, I hope this video will help you understand why we chose the boat we did and what features and systems you may want to look for in a good cruising boat.  If there are any modifications or upgrades that you see in this video and want to know more about it, be sure to “search” (right hand tool bar on this page) for a post on it on the blog.  I’ve done a write-up or video on just about everything.  If you don’t find the info you are looking for, shoot me an email and I will be happy to answer as best I can.  Happy Boat Shopping!

#61: Machined Blocks and a Magic Bilge Box

Why is there always a part of the rigging that does not fit?  Why?!  Watch as we battle more custom machining woes on the tie rod rigging, finish up the bottom job after a minor Annie meltdown, and reveal how we plan to fix the clogged weep hole in the mast step that started this whole mess!

And … we’ve got BIG news coming soon kids.  I am going on a once-in-a-lifetime passage!  I’m working on an awesome announcement video about it which will publish soon, but a sneak peak awaits in a “Patrons Only” post up on Patreon now.  Join Patreon to join me on this awesome adventure!
