All three make sense. I suppose these should be weighed against the better contact between chain and gypsy for a vertical.

And Omatako makes a good argument for verticals (usability in all direction) which is applicable for a windlass on the stern. But he clearly is also very happy with his horizontal one on the bow.

Thank you for the education, I always like to learn new things.
A horizontal windlass can have "usability in all directions" (good phrase) with the help of a snatch block off the anchor roller, or even a loop of large diameter rope used as a snatch block.

From another thread yours is a 1964, right? I have [edit: I had] a '64 Victory 21. They really built them solid back then. I think they didn't know how strong fiberglass was going to be, so they made them extra thick!

mostly resin but still! much prefer that then thin cored whatchamacallit! jaja

my dad who was handicapped rigged an old plastic classic the challenger 24 by columbia, it was so thick and well built I had dreams to sail that boat first as a kid kind of like robin graham down south to el salvador...

but I got a bigger old woodie instead that served me just as well

go small youll enjoy the surroundings much better, plus maintenenance is minimal and cheap

it was not so much they did not know how strong 'glass was.. it was that boaters didn't trust anything thinner than the wooden boats they were used to.

my 63 Sea Sprite has extremely thick glass.. in many ways, just as thick as if she had been planked in wood

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

I just read in a sporting magazine that the Kiwis have realized that the human population there is simply not large enough to deal with such tasty invasive species as deer, elk and wild boars. So they have eliminated all license fees for hunting. Its open season all year round ,no bag limit. They are hoping foreign visitors will hunt there, to reduce the overpopulation of such tasty morsels . They say 50% of the country is crown land, open for hunting. While they still have that sublime stupidity called gun control ,and crossbows are illegal there, any yachtie arriving with a long bow or compound bow, and a canner, can sail away form there with his caning jars full of venison and pork , several years supply if he comes prepared. I have been told their caning jars and their lids are slightly different from what we use , but if you are very careful ,you can get the lids to work on our jars. Much wiser would be to bring along a huge supply of our lids, altho friends have reused them many times ,by boiling them before re-use.
Apple juice can reduce gaminess.

You should do your archery practice and canning practice before you leave.

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

dont tell anyone(jeje) but I was with some spaniards that did some fine wild pig hunting in polynesia...

There would be a market with cruisers at $5 jar. But i bet the price would be far higher.

Its very difficult to get good preserved meat products. None in the supermarket, thats for sure.
