Re: House Battery Talk

I had somewhat similar problems until I got a 20W solar panel and controller to keep everything topped off. I have two 6V flooded "golf cart" batteries (225Ah) for the main bank, and a 12V AGM...

Re: Marina Del Rey to Catalina

Well, I may have over-stated the problems with Cat Harbor during Santa Ana conditions. It's probably safe enough on a mooring there. The time I got caught there we were anchored near the mouth of the...

Re: Marina Del Rey to Catalina

Westsailforever,

I don't have any magic insights. I tend to be pretty cautious when sailing out to the islands, check the forecasts before I go, listen to the NOAA channels, and basically just...

Re: Marina Del Rey to Catalina

Depending on exactly where the Santa Ana winds are come from Catalina (Cat) Harbor can be exactly where you DON'T want to go. The Santa Anas often get funneled by the hills around the isthmus and...

Re: Origo Electric/Alcohol Stove

When I replace the pressurized alcohol stove on my boat I looked into getting an Origo alcohol/electric unit, but the price was so high I opted to a plain Origo alcohol unit. I bought a little...

Re: Bet You Didn't Know This About Hunters!

Threads like this always make me appreciate the encapsulated keel on my old Cal. Not that encapsulated keels are completely problem free (e.g., the hull/keel lamination can flex if not built thick...

Re: sound system on Catalina 22

On a boat that small just get some sort of boom box (that ecoxbt looks pretty sweet) and call it a day. I used a little portable AM/FM stereo on my old 21' boat for years. I just sat it in the...

Re: Copper sheeting & CopperCoat anti-fouling

Why not? A Scotch Pad will definitely scratch, and thus abrade, most epoxies. I suppose the effectiveness of the Scotch Pad depends on the hardness of the epoxy. But I don't see any reason why, in...

Re: Copper sheeting & CopperCoat anti-fouling

Wouldn't scrubbing the bottom with a "Scotch pad" while the boat is in the water do the same thing?

Re: Bet You Didn't Know This About Hunters!

The notion that the keel was held in place by epoxy, and that the keel bolts are essentially superfluous, is very misleading. The epoxy is there to keep the water out, period. Epoxy is very strong...

Re: winch size? How critical?

You can always point up and luff the jib a bit if the winch isn't big enough to trim the sail in. Racers want to be able to trim the jib in without luffing, but for recreational sailors/cruisers it's...

Re: Boat Explodes

Anything that can burn can explode, given the right (wrong?) set of circumstances; flour and wood (e.g., sawdust) are but two examples. However, gasoline and LPG (propane and butane) are FAR easier...

Re: Husband fell in love with an 1978 Ericson Mark II 35.5

From the pics of the boat in question, it looks like a PO has done some remodeling of the interior. The E35-2 had a U-shaped "dinette" on the port side, with the engine compartment being under the...

Re: Boat Explodes

All deaths are treated as a homicide, until proven otherwise. Even if everything points to an accident the default position of the investigators will be to initially investigate it as a homicide.

Re: Has anyone had or seen this problem ?

I'm betting Denise is right. Try loosening the standing rigging and see if the deformity is less apparent.

re: Cruising California. Experiences and advice.

Sailing south along the Central California coast is easy, relative to sailing north. However, there are some pretty long stretches w/o any really safe anchorages. If you have a sound boat and some...

Are the Sun 27 and 28 (SpencerYachts) missing from the "Production Boats" section? Or is it just not a comprehensive list?

Re: Motion sickness question. Am I crazy?

Re: Boat Ventilation

If there is some sort of passive vent to act as an exhaust, I would make them both intake fans. That way the slight over pressure should keep the bilge and engine room fumes out of the cabin.

Re: Boat Ventilation

I have a day/night solar vent, mounted on the forward hatch, on my 27' boat. One advantage to that location is that the hatch is a bit recessed when looking at it from the inside. So the inch or two...
