Re: Death of in-mast furling/new mast

I did the 60' mast from my Columbia for a week of my amateur disassembly work, > $1K in materials and $1K for a guy to do final prep and shoot it.

Paying way into 5 figures for a much smaller spar...

Re: Death of in-mast furling/new mast

How about naming the yard that quoted $14K to paint the spar so we can all avoid it?

Re: Time to Sell a Boat

I sold my last boat in a month from 1st ad to sailing away. It was a 30' ocean cruiser pretty well ready to head out. I sold it for twice what I had in it and the new owner still got a good buy.

Re: Interior upholstery - need inspiration

With a golden teak interior I like green fabric. It's warm and blue is cold so your local climate should be factored into your selection. Attached is a pic of my last boat - I never cared for the...

Re: "a slight boat malfunction,"

What do they regard as "a serious malfunction" or "a disaster"?

Re: Hughes Sailboats

I have a pretty good opinion of Hughes boats but Yowza! none of them, even heavily customized, ever looked remotely like that.

P.S. keel trim tabs are a stupid complexity for little more than a...

Re: Do you have to be wealthy to own a sailing yacht?

Depends on a lot of things.

What do you call "wealthy"?

How big a boat are we talking about?

Where will it be kept? Around here the annual moorage can get very close to the purchase price...

Re: 1975 Reinell 27 cabin sole replacement

No, that is not and never was standard practice.

Reinell had a rep pretty much equal to Bayliner for building crap.

Their market was essentially trailerable power boats - I think 30' was the...

Re: Anyone know what type of boat this is?

It is a Fraser 30. DeKleer's moulded the glass and did a very good but basic job of it - nothing remotely exotic, not even vacuum bagging, strictly woven roving and bucket & brush.

Most of them...

Re: Canadian Boats Selling in USA

After what I just experienced, I'd check with Customs and Border Protection with the specifics. If you get it wrong they can confiscate the boat.

They are not very understanding or flexible either.

795 is right. It might just be the way you worded your post but I hope they cut your glass to the correct size. You can't cut tempered glass - you cut the glass and then temper it.

Re: C&C 30' Half Ton

C&C built a few of them - Sailboat Data says 12. There are 2 or 3 in B.C. and 1 or 2 in Puget Sound. Also some in S.F. Bay.

Very eccentric boats - really only useful as daysailers and PHRF racers...

Re: pattern cutting on bandsaw

The band saw is generally regarded as being one of, if not the safest of the stationary cutting tools.

You really have to work at it to hurt yourself with one.

I recently discovered that there were versions of the Hughes 35 / Northstar 1500 that had an aft head layout.

Most of them were Basic Layout A but some were done with the aft head.
