Re: mainsail batten

If you do have to cut the batten, use a fine metal saw (cuts fiberglass battens really well), round off edges with a fine metal file, polish the edge with fine sandpaper (200 grit), AND dip the edge...

Re: mainsail batten

Two things - as you've said yourself, don't cut it too short; and use a file or sandpaper to clean up the cut edge - not your fingers. Fibreglass slivers are no fun.

Re: Electrical 101

Congrats on new boat Keja...Suggest you determine condition of

Re: Electrical 101

You may even be able to pick up a charger on Craigslist. If you're in a saltwater area, I'd avoid the stuff from Harbor Freight or some of the other, inexpensive chargers. Get a good quality marine...

Re: Electrical 101

I would start the year off with just adding a modest charger. After a season or two you will understand your needs better. Often you get caught up in buying toys for the new baby and much of what you...

Re: 22ft on Lake Huron

I have read most of the replies to the question about suitably of an Edel 665 for sailing Lake Huron. A lot of critical comments but not much info from experienced owners.

Re: 22ft on Lake Huron

As I have read through this thread, it seems like KejaGrad, the original poster could be left with more questions than answers. After all there seems to be a number of 'drivers' which could help to...

Re: 22ft on Lake Huron

Re: 22ft on Lake Huron

Tanzer 26 is a better boat in every way but you will not be able to take it home for the winter and thus it will cost you more. Yet the comfort and safety level for your family will be much higher as...

Re: 22ft on Lake Huron

Edel 6 is a good boat but launching a 3' fixed keel boat from a trailer can be a royal PITA unless you have access to a rather steep ramp or a lift. I'm assuming you are going to keep it in the water...

Re: 22ft on Lake Huron
