Hi there, sorry for the late reply. I'm still around, just in the throes of an out of state move, so haven't been checking this forum much :(

Given that my boat isn't in the water and is instead up on stands in a boatyard, I don't think there's too much I can really do other than a) make sure there's nothing that can blow off the deck b)...

When shopping/looking for a boat, no, I didn't consider a multi though if a tri presented itself as being really affordable, I probably would have considered it. That said, I am one of those who...

If you are just learning to sail, you shouldn't be looking at teaching yourself in 30-foot keelboats and being "a few miles" away from any coast.

That doesn't sound like a good mix to me.

I've waffled back and forth on whether I want it out or in. And you're right, now that the boat is tipped further back (though not quite enough for the water in deck to drain out of holes in the...

Big boat work

Went to the yard today to work on the "big boat". We tried out husband's Guzzler pump set up, worked great to flush out the bilge. Other than the bilge and the cabin sole, most of the boat seems...

Tiller, redux

At least it's a different tiller.

Rainy, rainy day, so grabbed the Ospray's tiller to sand down and prep for some stain and what not.

It's heavier and more substantial than the Tartan's tiller...

Pump up the jam

Thanks for the advice on the pumps. I've been wondering what to do about that. Right now, the boat will take on some water just sitting on the stands -- I'm pretty sure some/a lot come in through...

Rainy Day Sunday

Today it was overcast and started to drizzle the moment we went to do something "outdoors", so we weren't able to do some of the stuff we wanted.

However, we managed to do a few things to the...

Where we're at now

So with the chainplates out and half the cabin cleaned, we didn't do much more before we had the boat moved. We totally cleaned everything out (except for ever present paint chips) and an inch of...

Tartan isn't going anywhere (Picture intensive!)

Well, I mean in the sense of "Hey this Ospray is so much fun, bye big boat!"

If anything, the Ospray will go somewhere else once the big boat is in the water. I bought it with the thought that a...
