I liked the round knob better.

Which one feels better?

It isn't actually dust - it's polyestermite excrement

Re: Sacrificing virgins to pagan gods (sailing related)

Have a good party on board and pour a few shots of good rum into the drink for the aquatic Gods.

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Denise, it looks like you still using oil stones for sharpening? If so, treat yourself to a Japanese water stone.

Trust me, you won't believe how much better they are.

Re: Lifespan of Fiberglass Boats

Just keep planing & re-glassing the hulls and re-coring & re-glassing the decks and you too can have a glass Abe Lincolns axe. ;)

Re: Lifespan of Fiberglass Boats

Like the diesel scene in Captain Ron -

"Why is that Captain Ron"?

"No-one knows".

Many, if not most of the earliest glass boats are still floating and many of them have been customized,...

Stop it!

It is nice that you put such a visible glitch on it for us lesser mortals to feel good about.

Re: Greatest fear?

You must have an extraordinarily relaxed life if puking on a boat is your biggest fear.

Re: Greatest fear?

Have you ever seen the old movie Topkapi?

Peter Ustinov, in one of his best roles ever, plays a sweaty, greasy little hustler. At one point he describes how, as a child, his father called him "A...

Gawd I feel inadequate. :p

If you can make something that nice you should treat yourself to a better tablesaw.

My favourite Murphies are;

You always find what you are looking for in the last place you look.

Nothing ever breaks unless it's being used.

Re: Alberg 30 boat shed finished....almost

Looks good. If it's visible to your neighbours, an Army surplus camo net thrown over it will reduce the visual impact and the likelihood of complaints.

Re: Starting to look for a boat

Face the facts and buy a shoal draft Hunter or Catalina - they are designed and built for your exact circumstances.

If you move back to this part of the world, sell it and buy another here.

Re: New lifelines

Nice job. I never could understand why C&C liked those "assembled" pulpits so much - the one cheap-assed thing they did on their boats.

Even Buccaneers had welded pulpits.

Re: What is the most idiotic mistake you have made on a boat?

First time I docked my first keel boat I tied up to pilings instead of the float. We have a 15' tidal range here so by the time I had the boat tidied up the lines were bar taut and the boat was...

Re: Columbia 34 Mark 2

I think I'd wait more than a few weeks before attempting the "Graveyard of the Pacific" in it. The depth of winter is no time to be sailing up that coast in an old Columbia.

Re: Should Medsailor proactively rebuild his transmission?

Aircraft maintenance people have a term SMOH to document this sort of thing - Since Major OverHaul.

It's better to record that than to zero the hour meter.

Re: Volvo MD7 Overheating but exhaust water cold?

The problem with running without a thermo is that the water flushes through too fast to pick up any heat.

Racers who don't want a thermo because of the risk of failure will replace it with a...
