the seawater system is being drained Close all drainage points when the boat is notunder constant supervision Any incorrectly performed drainage can cause theboat to become filled with water and sink Also bear in mind that the fresh watertank and the toilet can be damaged by frostTo Be CheckedThe steering gear and controls must function perfectly and their be checked at regular intervals Never take any chances if you suspectthat something is wrong Take immediate action to remedy faultsAll rubber ages so check all rubber parts at regular intervals Parts which are ofspecial importance are the

I do not sell or share any user data or anything else for that matter. I do not keep site logs longer than I need to to keep bad actors off the site. Basically, I delete them after looking at them. If you are subject to CCPA, Google ads on this site will not be based on your past behavior so you will likely not see an ad for a lawn mower just because you looked for one at a big box website.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
