I want to try building a stackpack cover Jim. Sorry your not getting any word about your boat, I'm still hoping the sailing gods are smiling on you!

I called the insurance company and filed a claim. This should be fun. For those who don't know, I bought my last boat, a Catalina 25, in October of 2011. We sailed until late November, and had a blast. I spent from February through April cleaning, upgrading, refinishing, recovering cushions, etc. for the boat, and was very proud of her when she launched last Spring. Engine issues kept us from enjoying the boat until mid-season last year, but toward the end of the season, we started to get the hang of it and really enjoyed the boat. My plan was to keep her in the water until around Thanksgiving, then have her hauled. A work trip caused me to travel out of the country for two weeks in early October, but I was looking forward to sailing when I got home. Shortly after I arrived home, and almost a year to the day after we took ownership of her, Hurricane Sandy struck. I was able to get to the dock and adjust the lines and get almost everything of value off, which was fortunate. There was a steel tugboat next to us, and she sank. In so doing, she listed into our slip, and apparently our boat bashed against the tug for the better part of the second half of the storm, plus the nor-easter that followed (couldn't get into that area, or onto the docks, in the interim). The boat was underinsured (we got it for a song and I was going to get a survey at the end of the season), so the insurance company wound up totaling it. Now here I am, less than 6 months later, with another claim. The sad part is, neither of these was my fault.
Just hang in there, Jim. Sun will shine again, the ocean await for you to enjoy. There is always a happy ending.

Denise,
I made mine using sunbrella, and it came out decent considering how bad I am at sewing. I found some heavy-weight vinyl in the remainder bin at JoAnn's and used that along the chaff points.

RD, thanks for the encouragement!

Denise,
Check with my wife on stackpack design and building. She's got a thread here on ours. She's pretty good at it and has a step by step guide with pics.
MMR is her 'name' here on sailnet.

Jim,
Hang in there.

Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

Jim,
Glad to hear there's some progress on your boat. I'm sitting here waiting for the crane to take my mast down. I'll get started in a few minutes on re-installing my prop shaft while I wait. Then it's time to break out the buffer and make my shoulders ache.

Some days I really hate boats...

Jim

Jim,
It sounds like you and I may make it into Barnegat Bay at about the same time. Good luck!
