Re: A very stupid query(noob)

A 26 inch boat is pretty small

Most go with weather windows. tankers/freighters are on a schedule sailboats aren't (or shouldn't be)

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

Home Owners Insurance
Many home owners policies cover liability insurance for sailboats up to 23 or 26foot. Check with your agent & see if you are covered.
Save your money and don't buy insurance...

Re: Bummed...

Light crowd Friday , But had a packed house Saturday.
Having fewer boats there meant longer lines to see those that were there.
Seminars were great as always.

Re: Plastic or Aluminum for water tanks?

Re: Cold start yanmar 2gm

Don't set your boat on fire. Place a hair blow dryer in the engine compartment aimed at the intake manifold for about 10 min , should start like a warm engine.

Re: loose footed main

I found with a loose foot that I can see the lower sail shape much easier and it inspires me to adjust the outhaul more often thereby I get better performance out of the sail.

Re: Sospenders? Good brand?

The collar on the sospenders make them more comfortable so you will wear it more often.
Don't forget shipping cost.

Re: Wind-vane now? Or wait for next boat?

If adjusting the wheel pilot doesn't help with the power consumption, another battery bank is much cheaper than a wind vane and any future buyer would probably much rather have the extra amps.

Re: Styrofoam everywhere!

If its chopped up it will just float out of the holds, so its not going to keep you afloat.
Clean it out & if you want flotation in those spaces get some spray in flotation foam.

Re: WM Foul Weather Gear

If cost is an issue, check Cabelas or Bass pro shops, some of their fishing foul weather gear is identical , priced less , more sizes available (2x 3x) just not in the pretty sailing colors.

Re: I Think I Found The Right Boat

You don't have to stick to buying in your area. Boats are shipped all over the country. You could find a nice boat that size elsewhere plus shipping for a lot less.

Re: Musings of a Live Aboard

My all time favorite
