Re: copper free bottom paint recommendations

Do you believe PS's test data and the methodology behind it is flawed? If so, please explain. As a person very familiar with anti foul paints as yourself, I respect your opinion, but I'm also...

Re: copper free bottom paint recommendations

It's unfortunate your jib sheets did not live up to Practical Sailor's review, but like all things (and this includes their testing of ePaint) YMMV.

I do not dismiss anecdotal evidence, especially...

Re: copper free bottom paint recommendations

Agreed. The waters here in the PNW are fairly benign to fouling. I used it on my metallic running gear because it was a non-metallic containing coating which was highly rated.

Was it ePaint...

Re: Discount Head Choices...

I second getting the Jabsco.

Heads are all about the parts 'thang.' Joker valves in manual heads always seem to go by-by at the most inconvenient time. The Jabsco manual heads are one of the most...

Re: Best Boat Hook?

I don't know if any of them were HD or not, but IIRC, the last one was around $75, telescoped to around 15 feet, and was somewhat of a beefier build than the previous WM versions I had. This didn't...

Re: Best Boat Hook?

I went through three or four WM, or WM style boat hooks. Junk IMO. They don't like water, especially salt water. Their cheaply anodized surface will start to corrode, making it difficult to slide...

Re: Drogues & Sea Anchors onboard

Re: LED Navigation lights

Much of the concern is discussion board fodder I will admit, but I do recollect Maine Sail citing an incident or two.

Re: Non-Marine Snatch Blocks?

I would guess for spin sheets.

If you've ever had to thread 2+ boat lengths (general rule of thumb) of spin sheet through a 'regular' block, you quickly learn to appreciate the invention of the...

Re: LED Navigation lights

The trouble is, LED nav lights, specifically certified versions, just haven't been around long enough for any real comprehensive data, so we're left with anecdotal opinions.

Re: Any one know a thing or two about booms

I didn't know that to be the case. I always considered the term jiffy reefing as somewhat generic to a reefing system that uses line(s), rather than a manual set of the cringle and tack.
