Mast and rigging physics question

Took my 16' Balboa out to Agate Pass yesterday on Puget Sound. It was truly the first "real" sailing weather I've expereinced in my 1+ year of ownership. Predicted wind speeds were 10-15...I'm not...

Seattle to Anacortes...how long?

In a worst case scenario, Sasquatch steals the sails from a 25' Catalina...so you'd be forced to motor (typically a 9.9hp, yes?) from Elliot Bay to Anacortes (inland route). What would be a...

My ex-slip neighbor (I've since moved about 12 slips away), is what my kids called the "man-woman"...a cross-dresser. Our first meeting (in full female mode...and who bears a striking resemblance to...

Balboa 16...one year later

She has been an absolute joy. Simple, cheap, and easy to sail. I just had her pulled and painted...for the first time it turns out. I upgraded the secondary propulsion system to a like-new Merc 2...

Well...its been awhile

I ended up with a Tohatsu 2 stroke 3.5hp from Craigslist (free!!!) and it works great. Have done a lot of daysailing with her...she needs a good bottom job and the sails could use a good refurb.

Underway tomorrow come hell or high water

Siberian-like weather be damned! I'm going out on the B16 tomorrow. Haven't been out in 2 weeks and am already starting to see growth on the rudder. Goal is to make it out of Liberty Bay and learn...

Outboard for Balboa 16

I recently purchased a Balboa 16 sailboat. She displaces 1000 lbs and drafts 25' with a shoal keel. I'll keep it in a marina in the central Puget Sound area. The boat didn't come with an outboard,...
