SailTimer Wind Instrument™: Advanced features, low price.

The SailTimer Wind Instrument™ is a wireless, solar-powered masthead anemometer. It works with lots of navigation and charting apps. You can raise it from deck level if your boat is in the water, and it has lots of other cool innovations too. For example, this is the first masthead wind sensor designed for sailboats; the blades work like a cup anemometer when upright, and turn into a propeller to maintain equal accuracy when sailing along heeled over. Check out the web site to see how — and get a discount while supporting our sponsor.

  1. Definitely always a nasty situation when it comes to roaches… however, like all things it could always be worse- a few weeks ago the SV Delos crew posted a video of where their sewage line going from their toilet backed up & they had to clean out shit water from inside their boat.

  3. DO NOT let the manatee drink fresh water. It is illegal and can get you a $100,000 fine. Read more here. http://www.thestate.com/living/midlands/article13857239.html

    Also, you said it wrong. It's "I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass. And I'm all outta bubblegum."

  4. One time at band camp, I microwaved a cockroach for a minute. After opening the door, it scurried away unharmed.

  5. I’m sure this isn’t the first you’ve heard this, but when you prevision, you should wash all produce, dispose of all packaging and labels before bring home food down below. This includes the glue in canned goods, too.

  8. Here in South Florida, roches is a royal pain in the a$$, or as we say, PITA. A way to keep roaches away is to simply strategically place borax around your storage area. It won't hurt you and bugs hate it. Apparently, it makes them sick and they leave or die.

  9. Rule of thumb is any marine animal with a horizontal tail is a mammal. If it's vertical it's a fish.

  13. Roaches are nasty. It's good that you are taking quick action, but try to remember that any poison you use in your boat you have to live with in that small living space. In addition, anything you spray into your bilge goes directly into the world's largest wilderness, so please don't spray poison in there. Enjoying the ocean is the reason why you are on this adventure–love thy ocean and it shall love you back.

  15. She's right, they love fresh water from the hose and lettuce.
    I was cleaning the bottom of a 60' Hatteras Sport fisherman several years with a tank on. Water was murky, as this thing brushed up against me. I damn near had a heart attack. Thought it was a bull shark at first till I realized it was a manatee. They're just gentle, slow moving animals.

  25. I wonder if this song and video by my ex-wife, describes Julia's life before Shaun came into the picture, BREAK DOWN HERE by Julie Roberts?

  26. How to get rid of roaches:Mix boric acid powder, sugar and water to create a boric acid insecticide spray. Use 2 tablespoons of boric acid and 2 cups of sugar for every 1 cup of water. The sugar will attract insect pests, including ants and cockroaches, while the soluble boric acid will kill them.Good luck!!!
