Re: Husband fell in love with an 1978 Ericson Mark II 35.5

Love is fun! I sail every week with gas in my boat, no choice with an outboard. If gas was an auto fail then lots of boats wouldn't be out there making people happy. Now having said that...

Re: So where the heck do you shower???

Too true. No sweat makes you cleaner. But on the other hand we catch fish up here by the bucket loads and nothing makes you want a shower quite so badly as smelling like a bunch of fish. :D

Re: So where the heck do you shower???

It must be warm where all you sail. The suggestion of standing on deck for a shower up here wouldn't go over so well on most days. Well, maybe like 5 days outta the year.

On the other hand,...

Re: Just saw a gorgeous S2, 9.2A

I would second that Nancy. We bought a 25 last year and it was really the only option at the time. But what it really did show us was that we wanted a bigger boat for the kids on our Alaska waters....

Re: Suggestions for 28-32 cruiser?

Welcome to Sailnet! Enjoy your classes and have a great time. My wife and I did it 4 years ago and it has been a blast.

As far as the perfect boat and what we want, I am so glad we didn't run...

Re: Advice For Good Boat To Learn On

Go let your heart lead the way. (Oh and do exactly as Zed says and take tons of pics so we can help you take a look).

Re: We have fallen for the Cheoy Lee 40 Offshore

From a sales standpoint it just makes no sense sometimes. For example, instead of talking to him and becoming more enthralled with the boat, I went looking on YW again and found something even more...

Re: anchor tips to get it to catch?

It was only a matter of time wasn't it. I hope this was a internet attempt at sarcasm, but more likely it was a typical attack on someone looking for help.

Good for the OP to come looking for...

Re: Advice For Good Boat To Learn On

This is really a great point. We bought the Mac 25 and there are TONS of them out there. Even a couple on our lake in Alaska no less. Everything we wanted to do to upgrade it had already been...

Re: Advice For Good Boat To Learn On

Pricing on boats will be all over the place. It is one of the frustrating things shopping but it has a good reason. Maintenance is more important than anything on these older boats. We just bought...

Re: Depth finder

I have a fish finder and it is accurate for depth on our lake and in the deep blue as well. IE: readings match what the charts say and what is easily visually confirmed with anchor and eyes. Can't...

Re: Outhaul repair/replacement

Try Grainger. They have wire, rope and other sheaves from Ronstan and other vendors. After trying to find them myself at sailing shops like WM with no luck, they had everything I needed for 5 bucks...

Re: Sailing Product Research

This is what I was thinking. Nicely crafted tools are often hand me downs. The sailor's knife I think may be the best idea yet.
