Companionway Steps

Finally, spring has arrived here in New England. Finally :D

My companionway steps need some TLC. The wood down below is all teak oiled. It appears the sides and back of the engine cover/steps...

Re: Removing Diesel smell

Can you get some soapy water up below the floor pan and hull? Maybe a pressure washer with soap attachment on low pressure?

Take the cushions home for a shampoo and good airing out.

Then,...

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

Young coconuts actually open very easily if you know the technique. Just shave off the husk on top and pop it open along the three vanes that run across the top. All you need is a small triangle...

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

Although Gary's recipe sounds good, I too thought they would be served up in a fresh young coconut.

I take chilled young coconuts
crack the tops open
insert a straw
pass it off to the future...

Re: Rule 16 situation: Room to Keep Clear

Re: Moving up in size. Suggestions?

Did you ever look at the 34+ It's a big 35.5. ft boat. Still has the separate shower stall, etc.

That's a lot of interior, probably not so cavernous, and, of course, it's a C&C :) So you can...

Re: The Good Old Days

I like both. What interests me is the "green" tech that goes into these crazy cats and tris. The fact that sailboats can go that fast amazes me. I'll never own one but someday folks will be making...

I've got the cover off and started to get things squared away. I hope to be in by the end of the month but it might go to the first week of May.

I'm usually ready to go around April 15 but this...

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

I mentioned the Hobie 16 earlier. If you can sail a hobie you can sail anything, they are a bit different, but once you pass the learning curve adapting from one to another is easy. Confidence is...

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

How about a hobie 16 (or similar)? You would need a trailer and I would suggest the masthead float. I used to have one and I'm 6'1" 200 lbs. They are a blast to sail and the trampoline is good for...

Re: Am I an SOB?

Sounds like you are beating yourself up a bit because you feel guilty for not doing more.

Just because you 'could' have done more doesn't mean you were obliged and certainly doesn't make you an...

Re: Congratulations go the flying Gunboat....

Tie a length of polypro. to the axle of your car, the other end to a tree and see what happens when it goes taught at 35 mph. You won't even notice.

Re: Recreational Sailboat vs. Tugboat with Barge: Who Has the Right of Way? - See mor

I can't believe this debate has gone this far. It's like the 4th of July out on the water here.

Re: Recreational Sailboat vs. Tugboat with Barge: Who Has the Right of Way? - See mor

New reels catch fish so purchase some.

From what I understand, rarely is anyone ever held 100% responsible when two vessels collide, so even if you feel you are in the right, you won't ever be...

Anchored there (the cove, not into the river) for a night. It's a nice enough spot in a pinch but the wind and bay's swell did not cooperate. Eventually decided we needed...

Re: Any Solo Sailors?

Stay on the boat, you won't get a second chance.
Wear your PFD and/or tether.
keep a floating VHF in your pocket (mine has DSC/GPS).
Allow for much more time to finish tasks, even ones that might...

Re: Are NADA Values accurate ?

They seem to be accurate in one respect that may be very important, or absolutely useless.
The loan value most banks use will depend on NADA. So, if you are financing a boat then NADA has value....

Re: What's the *second* best way to keep spiders off your boat?

Re: What's the *second* best way to keep spiders off your boat?

I hate to be a naysayer, but Consumer Reports in 1993, again in 2003 and The New England Journal of Medicine in 2002 all dispute Avon's and other's claims of "best bug repellent on the market". Avon...
