Is our 78HP engine strong enough to tow another sailboat? This is the question we asked ourselves when our buddy boat Calico Skies stopped dead in their tracks. Unable to run their engine - with no wind, deep water and a big swell running we couldn't leave them at the mercy of the tides and currents. So we did something we’ve never done before. Towed another sail boat with Delos!!
It was quite a tricky maneuver as we had to navigate though thick fog and a minefield of lobster pots! Hope you find this episode entertaining and maybe even learned something :)
Many hugs from us! Please subscribe :D it help us out a lot! Kazza, Brian and little Sierra

To all you sailors out there. If you do end up towing another vessel. Your engines are on motor mounts, to reduce noise. Tug boats and most every commercial vessel has their engines hard mounted directly to their stringers so they can pull or push without tearing the engine off it's mounts. Doesn't mean you can't, just don't overdo it.

in the aviation world there is a similar problem with oil filters. What you can do is remotely mount your filters. what you need is an adapter plate to mount on the engine that will mimic the oil filter. The adapter has lines on it so you can mount the other end (where the filter attaches) in a more convenient location. Makes sense?

Ok. I think there are just too many lobster pots. How is any boat supposed to get through that without hitting one? They need their own section set aside, where no boats can go. Nobody can be expected to dodge through all that. They put too many so they should expect some will be hit.

Hey they make oil filter relocation kits. Cars run them all the time. You could mount it so the filter is vertical

What a gorgeous place, but wow, the lobster pots sure make things difficult! I think I'm also getting a much better understanding as to why Daley adventure went to land when Ayla was a toddler. It must be very difficult to manage their desire for mobility in a confined space when 'going outside to play' on land is such a production! I didn't get it then, probably because we didnt see much of the negative, but watching the struggle I am now remembering family toddlers and imagining what it would be like without any large play rooms or covered porches to ride big wheels etc.... Kudos to you both for managing with grace such a difficult situation requiring creative solutions every day!

Excellent trailer!!! Glad I waited! (Ok.. so I always watch all the way thru..). I keep thinking Nugget needs some kind of bouncing seat hanging from the top inside nearer the wheel.. so she can be part of things but safe and contained.

Beauty the scenery is so beautiful and stunning.Very enjoyable! Reminds me of my trips where I take the good music like the Guns N Roses, Imagine Draongs or the Delta Parole and then enjoy the powerful feeling of the sea. ¡vamos!

Hey was thinking about your oil filter dilemma To avoid mess from filter you could use screwdriver to puncture a hole in side and drain it into small container then remove it

When I do oil changes on my boat and car/truck.. I poke a little hole in the filter and let it drain into a pan. Definitely works a lot better!!
Jonathan Aker
Jonathan Aker Månad sedan
For the small filters and oil changes in general puppy pads or dog pee pads are the best, forget oil pads. If you really want to keep it neat you can puncture the filter by drilling a small hole to drain the oil... one on the top too if needed to get air in to drain

Good job someone designed the fuel and oil filters to have non-common attachments, perhaps this was coincidence (mroe than likely) or perhaps someone was thinking about someone being tired when changing the filter :-)!

Old oil filter: poke a hole in the top, put a pan under, rotate it 180°, catch oil that is in filter. When empty, unscrew all the way! Less mess!

When towing another boat with your sailboat, secure the towing line or bridal to a winch or winches ahead of the rudder. This makes it much easier for the towing vessel to manuever. Tugs do this when towing. Their towing bitt or capstan is always located ahead of the rudder.

I too had a problem with messy oil filters leaking black oil all over the place on removal. I now fit a zip lock bag over the filter before complete removal but after loosening first so it spins easily. I stuff the bag with some soft absorbant waste paper and then turn the loosend filter off inside the bag with leaking oil going right into the paper inside the bag. No mess! Kenelm Russell

Im probably telling you how to suck eggs but a good trick is to use a plastic bag under your oil filter when removing. No mess. Much love from New Zealand.

Hi Brian, Try a zip-loc bag over the oil filter after loosening and before un-screwing. Should catch all the oil :)

Cut a quart oil bottle apart to make a little drain tray funnel thingy, the oil pours in the tray and comes out the bottle mouth. You can even put a piece of rubber tubing to extend it.

On changing the oil you can fold a piece of cardboard or use a piece of stiff plastic as a taco shaped funnel. Then just use a container to catch the runoff. Cheers :)

Save an empty oil jug and cut it with a utility knife into something that will catch the oil.

Hey guys, they make a pliable funnel. its like silly putty but with a little more hold . It would be perfect for when you do oil changes and im sure you could find a few more uses.

Changing the filter with minimal mess, first loosen slightly, punch a whole in the side with a small Philips at a convenient spot toward the end, remove the driver placing your finger over the hole to minimize leakage, rotate filter downward releasing the oil into a small funnel/container.

One reason the OEM's put filters on sideways or sometimes upside down is to stop people from prefilling the filters, that practice can introduce a lot of cantaminates. especially bad for newer fuel systems. A few people already suggested but you can buy relacating kits to make services a lot eassier!

Put a couple bumpers out . then tie up side by side. then tow . You can handle them all the way to the dock. It is what we always do.

I have a lot of reservations about doing a service when I wasn’t in Port. It’s just too easy to find a problem or cause a problem that you don’t have the parts for when you’re in the boonies. How do you say, don’t fix it when it’s not broke, when you’re not in port. And then where are you? Of course your sailboat, that gives you an extra degree of reliability at least when the wind blows, although getting out of this scenario, read obstacle course, without an engine would be icky.

When replacing your impellers, use dish soap to lubricate your impeller and cavity. That way the rubber is lubricated on first startup. Dry starts of impellers lead to premature failure.

I saw you put your new filter on the generator without putting oil on the gasket. That makes for difficulties when removing next time. Just put a thin film of oil on the new gasket each time you install a filter, and they will be much easier to remove next time.

Boy...hope Calico makes sure looks bad with that wind and the potential to be blown onto the rocks (lee shore).Hopefully their engine and transmission was working..if it was I would at least put it forward just a little (idle) to take the strain off the rode and anchor...regardless I would be trying to sail away if possible but the wind angle makes it look like that may not be possible. Not sure where the land lies from this view...Land is your enemy...Best...
