Re: Holding tank vent fitting options

Our vent came plumbed with a 1/2" through-hull just below the toe rail.
I up-sized it to 3/4" in the exact same location, and added a Big Orange (or something like that Canadian) carbon canister...

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Here's one for you.
Everyone looses a halyard up the mast from time to time ;)

I found a thing online for snatching a loose halyard from the mast head for about $30+shipping. I made one from a...

Re: Jib catches while tacking

Sorry to offend. I don't sail on tall ships.

Like I said: to each his own.

But, as the original poster queried, if your jib is getting hung up on whatever crap you got hanging from your...

Re: Jib catches while tacking

Personally, I don't think ratlines have a place on any length boat except those pirate ships in the movies, but some people think they look "salty". ;)

To each, his own, right?

Re: Jib catches while tacking

Ratlines (the ladder rungs for climbing the shrouds) ?

A bad bowline with a long tag end will also snag on every tack...

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Not sure, but since it said so on the label I'm hesitant to try.

Besides, who uses brass on a sailboat anyway? ;)

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

+1.
Thanks Mainesail. Ordered your tape, and installed per your instructions last year (after first over-drilling and potting with epoxy).
No leaks.

Why would anyone second guess something...

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Thanks guys. Those port pics were after a once-over with Flitz. Ive tried vinegar on the bronze, but it seems to take forever and a day to soak off 38 years of "patina".

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

Sorry, too late. Those forms were a one-off design based on my own personal dimensions. I've already stripped them down, pulled all the screws, and tossed the plywood in the garbage. In fact (I...

Hey Bob, I found a '75 T37 on Yachtworld that was build with the "low coamings" straight out of the mold. Notice how the teak cap is at the...

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

Hey Pete, not sure if I'm an expert or not, but I'm learning a lot about how these boats were built as I go along through my personal re-fit. ;)

Honestly, I don't think those coamings are anywhere...

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

We also use Flitz metal polish every 6 months or so to maintain that "shiny new, straight from the factory" bronze finish. Not bad for bronze ports founded in 1977….

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Nice score on the bronze port lights. We cleaned ours with a soak in Clorox toilet bowl cleaner (the blue kind with HCl, not chlorine). The acidic nature of the cleaner is a bit of a pain to work...

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Outboard engine stand. Basically free since I already had the 2X4's and wood screws. Built from a set of plans downloaded off the inter webs, and it has a spot to put your gas can, and you can park...

Re: Brand new Honda 5HP Outboard won't start - should I switch mfg?

Can't beat a Honda for reliability, but they're pretty picky about their fuel. Water in the gas is a bad thing for these finicky little outboards.
We have a '97 9.9 on our inflatable and it still...

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

I think Ta Yang changed the deck molds shortly after mine was laid up. I've seen pictures of newer boats (hull #'s in the low 100's) that the owners have cut open the coamings for storage bins. ...

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

Hey, look on the bright side: at least it doesn't have teak decks & cockpit :D

The coamings were a definite trouble spot for the first 100 or so T37's (mine's hull #91), and I'm in the process of...
