Re: Coastal sailing without depth finder?

I think if you are cautious and responsible enough to ask the question in the first place, you probably don't need one. I have been all over the middle Chesapeake in a 19-foot boat with a 2.5-foot...

Re: Where are the younger people?

I think there are a lot of younger people doing things besides playing video games these days, but those things may not be sailing. Case in point, I spent nearly 2 years in my 20s backpacking around...

Re: Cape Dory 30 - How slow is "slow?"

Another argument in favor of the CD30 is the large and supportive community over at the Cape Dory board, where I have yet to see a thread degenerate into all this name-calling.

Re: Cape Dory 30 - How slow is "slow?"

I've had a CD Typhoon (so pretty much the same design, just 19' instead of 30') for about a year and sail out of the Rhode River, and it is a great boat for the bay. She is definitely slower than...

Small world! Definitely the most creative name on the river. I've been curious about Blue Water--seems like a pretty low-key operation. I'm at Holiday Hill just up the creek.

The top layer of blue paint is quite brittle and comes off very easily, but you're correct, the lighter blue layer (whatever it is) seems very sound. My thought was to put on a barrier coat just for...

Is this paint or gelcoat?

So, this is my first boat, and today I began the process of trying to get the hull stripped down to the gelcoat in preparation for barrier coating and antifouling paint. Starting with the rudder, I...

Modified External Tank for Nissan 3.5

I have a 2-stroke Nissan 3.5hp on my Cape Dory Typhoon which will run maybe half an hour on a full internal tank of gas. Unless the wind is just right, this is generally not enough to get me out of...

The owner said he hasn't sailed it as much as he would have liked recently, but I got the impression that he does take it out occasionally.

Sailing with rotten bulkhead?

Greetings Sailnet-ers,

I just looked at a Kenner Kittiwake 24 that's for sale in my area, and have a couple of questions. This would be my first boat larger than a Sunfish, although I've been...
