Re: Pearson 30 Bilge Pump Recommendations?

500 is way too small for that boat. My Catalina 34 has a Rule 2500 and that isn't overkill by any manner.

Re: Looking at Sailboats

Learning the basics of sailing isn't rocket science and can be done fairly quickly.
What takes a lot of time is experience. Knowing what to do when you are in the middle of the ocean and the s..t...

Re: 10K$ boat --- Are Insurance and Survey REALLY mandatory?

First of all, you don't have to have insurance and no, you don't have to get a survey.
That being said, if you do get insurance, and I think most sailnetters will tell you it is a good idea to have,...

Re: Getting into sailing

Something tells me we have run off another newbie. While a few posts were a little on the harsh side (me included), he got a lot of good, sound advice.

Re: Getting into sailing

I have some friends who have done the loop and enjoyed doing it.
That being said, a sailboat really isn't the best boat for the loop as you will probably be motoring a lot more than sailing. If you...

Re: Getting into sailing

I've got a good buddy who built a couple of Glen L boats back when we were kids in the late 60's. He built a 12' skiff and later, a 15' inboard runabout. They were good, solid boats, but I almost...

Re: Getting into sailing

While size does matter, yes, people have sailed across the oceans in even smaller boats. The point I'm making, blue water boats are different from coastal crusiers in many ways from a design and...

Re: Getting into sailing

Yes, there are some decent $5k boats out there that can be had for sailing not too far from shore. But a $5k boat for sailing around the world....hope your life insurance is paid up. When you...

Re: Islander Excalibur 26 vs Catalina 27

What are your plans for the boat?
I can't speak for the sailing characteristics of one over the other but the livability of the Catalina is way better than the Islander. You'd be surprised how much...

Re: Finding the Hull Number

Yes, that is the official hull ID#. If you have the boat registered, insured, CG documented, mortgaged, etc., all parties involved will want that number.

Re: Catalina 36MKii prop shaft and rudder removal?

I'm pretty sure there is a C-36 owners website. You might want to google it. I belong to the C-34 website and it is Very active and extremely helpful. Any question I've ever had about my boat, I...

Re: Hunter 33 vs CS 30

Question to the OP...what is your sailing experience? I'm guessing either...not much if you think you can go around the world on a Hunter 33 or so much experience...

Re: Hunter 33 vs CS 30

I'm not familiar with the CS30, but I will bet good money, the majority of Sailnetters will tell you that a Hunter 33 is not a blue water boat. If you want to coastal cruise or island hop where you...
