Re: Catalina or Hunter?

To the OP,

Does not matter if it is a Hunter, Catalina, or one of the Beneteau brands. In the years that you will be looking at based on your budget, buy the one that sings to you because of its...

Re: ASA Course test

Good. When the stuff hits the fan while on the water the first thing I want to do is a google search.

Re: sliding helm seat?

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

You should probably do some fact checking before you make facts out of very little knowledge. Having owned a new Catalina I have to say that it delivered what I expected, the company took care of ALL...

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

Well, you can be "holier than thou" or do something to change the tax code. Until you do that I would advise anyone to play fair within the law and if the ownership meets the requirements to be...

Re: What do I check for before buying a boat from a private seller?

Wait! You gave him money without a contract, a bill of sale, or a title? You better hope he is legit because you are asking this question way to late if he isn't.

Re: New or Old?

Interesting discussion with no "right" answer, as the answer really depends on the buyer in question, whomever they may be.
I think Jon hit it well in his response. The "Dream" has always been...

Re: New or Old?

Basing a boat purchase on residual value, or rationalizing the purchase as a fun investment, is really not rational. What were the costs of owning the boat versus the costs of the car? I would think...

Re: Who should pay?

I agree that the wake by an unknown party caused the final result for both f you. However, two of you secured your boats, and I bet that from now on you will both do a much better job of anticipating...

Re: sail on or sail off?

Definetely would take it down. Although my main was not roller furling the local loft had a great service. Take the sail to them at the end of season, they inspect it and repair as needed, fold it...

Re: Why do people still use depth sounders?

Congratulations on not running aground in all those years. You must know your local waters well.

I rarely day sail with GPS or chartplotter on. I, too, know my local waters fairly well. In most...

Re: Starting from Scratch, want to bareboat in BVI in the spring...need advice

I have heard of a few good schools in Galveston, but will have to look for the name.

If you can find a few like minded friends or family you could accomplish both at one time. There are schools in...

Re: Reducing bird mess

Bird stuff is a pain. Different birds, different remedies. It seems that seagulls )sater rats!) get used to almost anything.

The pinwheels would probably keep most birds off the lifelines, in fact...

Re: 50' Motor Cruiser, powered by 2 6hp outboards.

One mans dream,.......

I have to wonder how those two outboards will control a boat with all that windage in a blow or rough water. I don't think I want to be the first guest on that eco tour.

Re: Battens Vs No Battens

A very good question in my mind. The OP said that he had a decision to make and added that he does not have lazy jacks as yet either.

Most of those answering and showing pictures have in mast...

No problem with your idea to buy a boat and go sailing. Dependent on your goal you do what is best for you.

Re: Looking to sail on Lake St. Clair, MI

Matt, can't help you in your area. If you do not get much response here, try some of the yacht clubs in the area. Bayview comes to mind. They may have some help.
If you have done both in your...

Re: Curse my impulsivity, I'm buying a boat! Taipan 28

Those are a few of the things that should be working before you take off. Turn key? Could be a great boat and be exactly what you want. Could be lots of money to repair. At least spend some time with...

Re: Urgent shaft seal question

My question is about not being able to haul it for repairs. You would rather not use it for two months rather than pay for the haul?

Re: Urgent shaft seal question

What does this mean? You need to fix it or you may come to the marina one day and find it on the bottom of the slip. That will be an expensive haul!
