Re: Catalina wing keel or fin keel?

Re: " All Is Lost" movie

Re: How "afraid" should we be of sailing?

I've been a sailor for over 30 years, mostly in boats less than 30' and mostly solo and I would not do it if I were afraid. I am however cautious and wear my PFD. When I was 16 my father taught me to...

Re: " All Is Lost" movie

The biggest mistake I see is that they must have only made three copies of if. The closest location I found to me (here in St. Louis, MO) is Chicago!

I only have a 1GM and in my experience the hand crank makes better ballast than a device for starting the motor.

I'm probably old fashioned but I like having a paper copy of the repair manual as...

Hi and welcome aboard.

You may want to talk to a shop that sells running rigging as there is more to it than just diameter. Different types of line have different strengths and strech ratios. I...

Okay, seriously this time. I don't know how much experience you have but I'm guessing you've never gone up a mast before. If not you need to make sure you are working with someone who has. Get a good...
