I've done it twice. First time, it cost $200 at a boatyard. Second time, I loosened the shrouds, disconnected the fore and back stays and the top shrouds so the mast was only supported by the...

If I was in your shoes, the deciding factor would be the condition of the sails and standing rigging. If that stuff is in good shape, you can surely have a sailable boat for not too much money. Just...

Take it.

My boat was flooded in the same way before I bought it. I replaced both structural bulkheads in two days (one to rip out the old ones, grind off the old tabs, prep the hull, and cut and...

Whoa. I'll have to look at my plans again. I was looking at 35lb sizes of each... I don't know what chart I was looking at. But the real price factor for me is that I can find CQRs on the used market...

Well. The boat cost less than my coffee maker. (I have an expensive coffee maker and a cheap boat). Seriously, I'm a realistic guy- the quality of my anchor will determine my anchoring decisions- I'm...

Good info- thanks.

Last question- Which is better- a minimally sized Rocna/Manson, or a slightly oversized CQR or Delta?

I'm tempted by the Rocnas and Mansons, but there's no way I'd be...

I hate to do it, but I have an anchor question. Fortress anchors anyone?

My next major upgrade will be a new anchor. So far, my Oday 27 has survived on cheap danforth knockoffs with no real problems, but very little serious use. I mostly anchor in mud and weeds, and in a...

Child climbing harnesses aren't built like adult ones. Kids harnesses are full-body with the attachment high on the chest b/c kids have a much higher center of gravity and they'd flip over if they...

I'll disagree with a bunch of what's been posted.

I started off with a small (14') trailer sailor and it was a great boat, but it was terrible with kids (1.5 and 4 at the time). They were cool for...

My boat lives on a mooring, so I dock very rarely (like four times last season), but when I do there's no jumping. If you're close enough to jump, you're close enough to reach out with a boat hook...

That, I think, is a respectable opinion. I disagree that no gain is to be had where there is a foul, but my perspective is perhaps skewed a bit by the fact that I see so much crime, petty and...

First, you can get a lot of sailboat parts at a marina for little more than scrap metal price. When I first got my boat, I asked at the marina where the boat was stored by the previous owner and they...

Man. You all are kinda assholes.

Since I'm a climber, I've just used climbing gear to go up... IMO, the best thing you can do is use a Petzl gri-gri and an ascender (just a tibloc is fine, or whatever, or even just a knot) above the...
