Re: Use of mainsail

You ask two questions.

Yes, people will sometimes use the the genoa. Sometimes for convenience, sometimes when blowing. With just the genoa beware of lee helm. We don't get much lee helm but...

Re: True and Apparent Wind Question

If you have an iPhone, use iSailor or iNavx. Indispensable for quick navigation.

No. Not even close. Like comparing apples and tubas.

Can You Tell Us About the Chesapeake and Annapolis?

Ummmm, don't believe anyone who tells you the Bay is as cold as NY! No way. Yeah it froze during a cold snap but we generally have comparatively short, relatively mild winters. For most people, the...

Re: Buying my first boat please help

Agree with all. While some people hate brokers, on our current boat our broker negotiated MORE off the price than I asked based on the survey results. He was extremely helpful and found us a great...

Re: Marine Air Conditioning Install

There are a lot of steps involved and while each isn't especially difficult, they are time consuming. You would have to install a through hull and seacock for the cooling water, pump, condenser,...

Re: Tayana 37: Coamings cut off - is this repairable?

Some people shouldn't be allowed to buy tools. Seriously.

Re: Bascule bridge, Knapps Narrows, MD question

Some bridges go fully open, others don't. I've been through Knapps Narrows and don't recall any issue. Just stay toward the side where it's most open. Since only one side opens (as opposed to draw...

Re: "Boat" vs. "Yacht"?

If you can't afford it, then it's a yacht. Otherwise, it's a boat.

Re: What would you do? Caught off guard by storm on the Chesapeake

I'd say that your scenario isn't that hypothetical, it's an inevitability in the mid-Atlantic. I can say from experience that most of not all of us have been it this situation. For my part, I've...

Re: Help with tired interior

I'm glad that you aren't replacing the veneer. I do a lot of veneering and it will not work for you because a) the stick-on veneers won't work over an oily (i.e., teak) substrate, b) the substrate...

Re: "Paying" friends wanting to go on the boat.

You mentioned getting back to boat building and that will certainly keep you on the water. How about building a smaller boat? I know that we're all in love with this idea of living aboard and...

Re: Bulkhead refinishing question

I have no idea why people insist on staining wood, especially teak. The only reason to stain a wood is to make it look like another wood, to make a cheaper wood like an expensive one. But why would...

Re: Bulkhead refinishing question

Why did you put mahogany stain on mahogany? As Siamese said, a satin finish like Minwax Helsman or Minwax wipe-on poly is all that you need. The interior of Victoria is done in satin and gloss...

Re: Initial Offer Question
