NY Harbor area Sail Loft Recommendations?

Our Spinnaker isn't sailing as well with the new hole we put in it. Turns out it sailed better before we had the hole.

Quantum (manufacturer), doesn't have a loft nearby. Can anyone recommend one...

Re: Looking for galley help/ideas

I've had the same set of non-stick pots onboard for 10 years. No rust issues.

I've had some steak knives develop rust, but thats about it.

Re: Won't buff out!

We got rammed 2 weekends ago by a cruiser while we were tied at the dock.
He's now replacing our tender, Davits, and paying for the labor.

He wasn't even sailing, it was motoring! Lost control...

Raymarine software update to Lighthouse II

Has anyone with a Raymarine MFD upgraded to the new Lighthouse II software?

I'm curious what the benefits were and if there were any problems with it.

I'm always hesitant to upgrade something...

Re: Bleach for cleaning cabin?

Bleach is a very common cleaner for boats, like others have posted. If you can get it, Clorox has some scented ones that make it a bit more pleasant than the smell of bleach.

I'd recommend when...

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon

Re: Radio calls ... What not to call your boat?

While sitting at a dock we were recently rammed by a boat who lost control coming out of their slip due to the currents inside the marina.

The boats name, aptly enough: "Swift Current"

Re: Using these as jerry cans

Re: Using these as jerry cans

You're good to go with those. You've covered contamination and venting. Can't imagine what else would be a problem.

Have fun diving you lucky dog!

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon

As I see it, the main factors are:

Physical ability
Skill
Crew size

Re: Motorcycle on a 30ft?

Even if you could find the spot on deck for it, I don't see how you'll keep it from rusting badly rather quickly. Just look around at what our bicycles sometimes look like. Regardless, I wouldnt even...

Re: clam cleat screws seized?

Use a screw extractor. I try not put it on a drill, you get more control if you stick it into a socket wrench.

If the extractor can't grip, you may need to drill a small pilot hole in the screw...
