Re: Good Small Boat for Older, Fatter Woman to learn on

I have a Bauer 12. It is a great boat to learn on. It is kind of a hybrid between a cat boat and a sloop. Although I think most people like to think of it as a cat boat just because of its salty...

Re: 26 foot catalina open water?

Marco Island gets a bad rap for not liking people anchoring out. And it's true that the powers that be don't like it but there isn't much that they can do about it either. I work at a marina on...

Re: 26 foot catalina open water?

I agree with all the previous posts. You need to be able to wait on good weather. And figure out what your next closest safe harbor every time you leave your anchorage in the morning. That way if...

Re: Bauer 12 mast help

So once I get the mast up I don't have to worry about the holes. I think they were slotted all the way down to begin with. The slot is just a lot bigger now.

Bauer 12 mast help

Re: More newbie questions

2. I have a 20 foot boat with lifelines. They are pretty much pointless as far as I am concerned. The newer models of my boat don't have them for good reason.

5. Go out on a light air day. ...

Re: is it ok to look as long as you dont touch

I look at craigslist every day. But I am also actively in the market for a new boat. Once I buy one I don't plan on looking again. I don't want the buyers remorse of "if I only waited another 2...

Re: CL 16 questions

That's not bad. A lot of people talk about getting there boat launched in 15 minutes but I think might be exaggerating a little bit. Or don't consider some of the things they do as part of the...

Re: CL 16 questions

When you say time consuming to rig how long would it take an average person to rig it single handedly. Getting out on the water as fast as possible is a pretty big factor for me.

Right now I don't plan on racing. Although someday I might change over to a class race boat. I guess a race boat would be the opposite of what I would want. Or at least I don't want 20 different...

I am looking into buying a CL 16. I don't know much about this boat other than it is a fiberglass version of a Wayfarer. The boat is a 1982 model. Is there any specific problems I should look for...

Re: My new blog

I am not even making a serious effort to find a berth at this point. The winter I will wind up in Florida and I might try to find something then. Or I may have enough of traveling and decide to...

Small affordable sailboats with ample storage? (planning to live aboard)

A Rhodes 22 has a head, not exactly enclosed though. Some Compac 23's have a marine head. 3k and 23 foot is not much to work with. If you could step up to a Catalina 27 you could get cheap and a...
