Re: who gets the ticket

This is probably the common language for most states (Arizona might be an exception) and certainly was the case in my experience. In Texas, they consider any boat in the water requires documentation...

Re: who gets the ticket

Once was stopped and ticketed by Texas Parks and Wildlife for having out of date sticker on my father in law's boat. The ticket was written in my name as the operator in violation. My Father in Law...

Re: Completed 4th recent Cape May trip

Nice boat. Great trip, one I wanted to take when I lived there, but at 22 ft., thought better of it. Most I ever did was Toms River to Shady Side.

Re: Ah!quick help. Extender plate under furler?

There you go. Even harken says this us not a good installation. Speak to the owner of the company, tell him you are dis-satisfied, that you do not want the tangs below the furler and that you want...

Re: Ah!quick help. Extender plate under furler?

From the eye of the toggle to the tack shackle on the harken III requires a minimum of 15.5 and a maximum of 18 inches. The installation instructions show the foil extends over the top marine eye at...

Re: Ah!quick help. Extender plate under furler?

I asked this in his other tread "furler". He answered no, they did not. Seeing would be believing though. I think we may be dealing with some dyslexia or other communication problem.

Re: Getting Used To New Boat

My companionway ladder has two steps. The boat I chartered in BVI had four. It is amazing how long it too me to learn that!

Re: Ah!quick help. Extender plate under furler?

As an absolute minimum they must fix the rigging so that your sail will fit and be of use.
They should repair or replace the damage done when the boom let go.

Re: Weird weird july weather.....

Same here on the gulf. You should see the barometric chart for yesterday, two peaks with a deep trough between them. However Sunday was a great sailing day in the morning. Started out at about 8kts,...

Re: Amsteel Blue for lazy jacks

Multi, thanks. Since I don't race, i would almost always sail with it on and not tied down. With a batten, the one I made just had too much bulk flapping around. I'm hoping that without the battens...

Re: furler

It is sounding like a real mess. For sure I would not pay them any more money until I'm satisfied that the installation is proper and well done.
The reason I keep asking about the furler is that...

Re: Amsteel Blue for lazy jacks

I think I understand how you have your lazy jacks run through the stack pack which sounds exactly what I want to do. I started with lazy jacks, later fabricated a stack pack and then took it off...

Re: furler

NOB
Any chance they reversed the fore and back stays. On some boats they can be close to the same length.
Of course there will be one toggle to allow the movement Christian mentions.
Do you have a...

Re: furler

Beach,
What kind of furler do you have?
Is your standing rigging original or was it replaced.
Furlers have varying requirements for the jib stay turnbuckle and wire fitting. Acceptability of...

Re: I may try for a solo trip in Sept.

I like this, but it is actually more tiring to sail with newbies. You have to watch their every action and frequently have to correct their mistakes. You get so used to calling it the jib sheet it's...

Re: Need tips on moving a small wooden Catspaw Dinghy from R.I. to CA

Do you know anyone driving R.I. To Ca? 150 - 200 lbs is not too much for a Thule or Yakima roof rack. That would cost you about $200 plus some for gas. That would leave you with a means to carry it...

Re: furler

The CDI is shipped to you in one long piece coiled in a box. It has plenty of lateral flex for dropping your mast and not damaging the foil. Torsional stiffness refers to twisting on its axis. So...

Re: furler

The #7 winch on my mast generates a 7.9:1 power ration. The 4:1 tensioner on my FF 8 can easily achieve that power, and I'm a 70 year old weakling. I think the power I have is what is needed for a...
