Why has this board gone stale?

That and Regatta Point Marina, which seems somehow related to "Truth."

house batteries

Great, detailed answer Gord, but you''ve convinced me to stay away from AGMs. Sounds like I''d need to buy a new engine to avoid destroying them!

house batteries

I believe SailNet carries a fold-down midships cleat that attaches to the toe rail that I''ve heard good things about. My boat, a 28'' S2, also has no midships cleat. When docking, I use the...

Best rig for singlehandling?

If "best rig for singlehanded" means simplest or easiest to use, my vote would have to be for the catboat - one sail, one set of sheets, simplicity itself.
