Re: sailed once with my uncle

I have little sailing experience but much in life as far as large projects go. Having completed a 20 year project of my own design, I can say that my thoughts about anything this large are, the...

Turning turtle

So I took my 13' Pirateer out in 12 to 15 knot winds the other day. This would be my 5th time to sail. Was a lot of fun, until I decided that gybing would be an ok thing to do, how bad could it be?...

Re: Southcoast 22

Thanks guys, that helps a lot. Sounds like it would not like rougher seas compared to a Catalina, but might be faster? Not that I would even take it to salt water, nice lake here in Indy, Eagle...

Re: What does a centerboard do?

I notice my centerboard, which is made of wood, will float up out of the trunk some when the load goes off it, when I am going downwind etc. But it is hard to move when there is some wind and the...

Southcoast 22

A Southcoast 22 is going cheap close to me. It has sat outside for some time and has mould or moss on it from the trees etc. Needs at least a decent cleaning. All the rigging and sails are in good...

Re: The WTF challenge!

You used Kroll so that is a good step, but stainless on stainless in salt water, worst combo ever. If somebody had the presence of mind to use anti sieze then it might be easier. Any real force on...

Re: Reefing stop?

Hmm, thanks for the info. So the knot would have to go over the pulleys and the knot then would jump past the stop I guess. Hardly worth the hassle I guess to then try to get the sail down while the...

Reefing stop?

Hi, attached pic shows the top of my mast, Chrysler Pirateer 13. I have no real idea what this little guide is, for the main halyard but, can't see what a guide would be needed for up there? The...

Re: Boat selling question

OOhh, Nigerian overpay scam if ever I heard of it, run the opposite direction and don't look back. The check is pure rubber and they HOPE you will have the funds and the trust to send them their cut...

Re: single-hand: best time raise/lower jib?

Agreed, something to hold the tiller so I can attend to everything else would be nice. A short 13' boat heads off course in seconds it seems, if I have any problem it's hard to get to them to fix or...

Re: single-hand: best time raise/lower jib?

This has been one of the hardest things for me to do and figure out. Pirateer 13' sloop, as I'm busy getting everything hooked up and placing the boom etc, the boat will spin around as I am not...

Re: Help installing a line boom vang

1, 45 degrees will give you the best boom pull for the least effort from you. 2, not always a good idea to try to bolt something tightly through a hollow section such as a boom. Better to use large...

Re: What kind of work do you do to finance your sailing?

I traded a Chinese 4 wheeler I had got for free that had been in a fire, for my '78 Chrysler Pirateer C13, and that costs me $5 to sail on the state lake 4 miles from my house.

Re: Bottom sanding. Kill me now

I don't know about on a boat, but with automotive paints, as long as the base coat is stable, no cracks or peeling, then you use a primer/ sealer over it and go on. The sealer does just that; it...

Re: Another fatal attempt at "Youngest to circumnavigate"

Often long over water attempts use huge fuel tanks that put the gross weight past safe limits, wing loading goes so high that the aircraft will fly only in ground, or in this case, water effect,...
