Re: Vagabond and Westwind Sailboats

There might be an easier way, but the way I do it is to upload the pix to an album in my User CP. Then I open the pix there and copy the BB code found below the pix and paste it into my post.

Re: Don't have to be rich to sail

We lived on a 42 foot boat on a mooring in the Caribbean for 2 years. It cost us less per month to live there including boat repairs than it cost to live on land in the US in a tiny one bedroom...

Re: Curse my impulsivity, I'm buying a boat! Taipan 28

Are you going to have it surveyed? I'm a leaky-teaky owner and those decks look like they have a lot of leak potential(screws and missing plugs). I'm not trying to be a dream buster. She is pretty...

I am a resto-junkie, and yes, I have made a profit if you don't consider my time invested. But I didn't try to sell a boat until after the US economy went south. I do 95% of the work myself because...

Re: Vagabond and Westwind Sailboats

We are doomed to the dreaded itchy nightmare - ugh.
The deck on our boat feels very solid - even where we know the core is saturated. They did not scrimp when they built her deck. The forepeak has...

Re: Need help, rolling furling get stuck after unwinding 5 feet of sail

Re: Embedded Chain plate maint/replacement

I don't think it is a bad idea at all, and I have seen it done well - on a Pan Oceanic. I met the owners several years after they made the change. They loved the set up - citing peace of mind in...

Re: Embedded Chain plate maint/replacement

Our Vagabond has embedded plates with carriage-like bolts with no plates on the outer hull. Our bolts, however, have a slot - for a really big screw driver.
