Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

I thought this thread was about a storm hitting the Dauphin Island race in Mobile Bay. The PFD issue has been beat to death. The real question is about having a race over open water with small boats...

Re: C&C 35 with Mod Bulb Keel, Effect?

I'm curious, wouldn't sailing the boat back be a heck of a lot cheaper? Wide load permits, bridge wait and border crossing by vehicle. In mid May sailing it back is doable.

Re: Fixing a rudder

Is there any rusty water coming out of the rudder? The hole trick and thickened epoxy method can work if the water penetration is minor. Remember on a 15knot wind speed power reach the forces on the...

Re: Best Spots on the Great Lakes for family cruisers.

I'd call first. I've seen boats from Lake Ontario there before. My sense is that they are pretty accommodating about it. Just make sure you contact the Sailing Club, the Sandusky Yacht Club is a...

Re: Best Spots on the Great Lakes for family cruisers.

There are no all weather sheltered anchorages around the Islands in Western Lake Erie. Note these islands are limestone. Consult your charts as navigation mistakes are crunchy. The anchorages are...

Re: PFD Flotation vs Body Weight

32# is the minimum for most offshore races like the Chi Mac. Sounds like a reasonable number. Bought leg straps for my 35# Mustang inflatables this winter

Re: Dumbest passage plan since the BOUNTY sailed straight into Sandy?

Ridiculous idea on this trip. A N/M 43 in good condition was at best poorly suited for the trip. This boat wasn't in good condition and not properly equipped.

Engine- needed to be thoroughly...

Re: increasing and consolidating standing rigging size

Here are a couple of other considerations. What are pin sizes of your clevis pins? My guess is 3/8". 1/4" is usually 7/16" or 1/2". Doubt if your chain plates would take 1/2". My experience with 2...

Re: Need delivery crew and captain Chesapeak bay to Ft Lauderdale FL March or April

Uh, that would be on the outside for a J120 because of draft issues in the ICW. That time frame is too early. Weather systems are a bit unstable at that time of the year. You can still get a...

Re: masthead sheaves

I have a similar vintage 29-II. VPC halyards have worked well for me with the original sheaves. 10MM VPC which is on sale is what I would recommend for the jib and main halyards. 3/8" Sta Set for...

Re: VC 17 or SR 21

Chemically they are both the same. Pettit uses a better anti-slime additive in their formula. I have used both interchangeably for years. No compatibility problems at all.

Use 90% isopropyl...

Re: How much paint will I need to do the bottom of a 30 footer

The obvious confusion by the some of the posters is that they are not familiar with VC 17. It is not the same a traditional bottom paint. It has the viscosity of water and goes a long way. Quite the...

Re: How much paint will I need to do the bottom of a 30 footer

VC-17 is a different animal. 2 qts is all that you need if you apply it right. 1st you need a solvent. Interlux has one called VC thinner which is relatively expensive. The rest of us use 95%...

Re: Port Huron, or even Chicago to Mackinaw race. Newbie looking for advice.

Being on Lake St. Clair helps a lot. Cuts a little of the cost down and 1 day out of the transport. I guess about 8-10 hours to motor up to Port Huron and about 6 hours to motor back.
