Re: New O'Day 26' questions

I don't have the skinny on which hoses and where, but I can tell you with certainty that there is the right hose to use, and the wrong hose to use, and that the sailboat makers don't always use the...

Re: New O'Day 26' questions

1. Once you've made sure the vent is okay, you'll likely discover that the smell is coming from the tubing in the system. Replace.

2. It's blue, that's for sure. Beyond that, it's anybody's...

Re: painting rudder on 23' -er

Typically, you use the same paint on your rudder that you use on the bottom. You need anti-fouling, right?

So, what's on the bottom?

Re: Retiring soon...

If there was a group of new sailors, and I had to bet money on which ones would still be sailing five years later, I wouldn't put a dime on the ones who said, "As I don't think I can afford a power...

Re: Old survey to new surveyor?

The Flicka is not a typical 20 footer. It has more in common with a 36 footer than it does with other 20 footers. Inboard diesel, complex 12v system, probably has Shorepower and AC wiring,...

Re: Too big a fish fishing off our boats?

Yeah...GO FISH!....kick their butts.

Powerboats and killing fish just for the sake of killing them. Where do I start?

Re: Old survey to new surveyor?

So, if you "hold it back", do you show him what he missed when he's done. And what will that accomplish?

It all comes down to whether he's a GOOD surveyor.

There's nothing you can do to...

Re: Old survey to new surveyor?

My first thought was, no. Let him do his work.

Then, I decided that if he's a good surveyor, as capecodda said, he may try to surpass the old survey.

And, if he's a bad surveyor, you're...

Re: Safety considerations for Great Lakes solo sailor

You're going to have to raise your bootstripe anyway because the water level is up in the Great Lakes this year.

Re: Quick bottom clean--ya think?

IF...all it needs is cleaning, then you may find that a Scotch Bright pad and soap and water will work well on it. That assumes that the anti-fouling properties of whatever coating is on the bottom...

Re: Safety considerations for Great Lakes solo sailor

You might be overthinking it a little. I've been sailing the Great Lakes for 35 years.

I wouldn't bother with the rigging wire. You're never far from a port, and you have an engine.

Re: SOBER SAILING *help*

If ma's an every day drinker, she'd have to be totally agreeable, and know up front that she's going to be put into a situation where booze is not going to be available. Never mind the DT's.

Re: 1985 O'Day 26'--inspection

The stock answer is: survey it.

By the way, I like the O'day 26's. A good one will give you years of sailing, cruising, and messing around.

But, if you do your homework, and prepare a...

Re: Filming whilst sailing...

When speaking directly to the camera, I'd certainly avoid having the camera lower than your chin. It's not a flattering angle for anyone's face. And, people generally don't want to look in your...

Re: Boat or Cruiser

All cruisers are boats. Not all boats are cruisers.

If somebody asks me what kind of boat I have, I say I have a sailboat. If they want to know more, I tell them I have a cruising sailboat. ...

Re: First Time Buyer Questions

If you're planning on trailering the boat each time you use it, the answer is an emphatic no, for a boat of 25 to 27 feet.

Towing is only part of the process. Raising the mast and setting up...

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

I agree that a car-topper is out of the question. It's an idea that was popularized in the 60's but was never really plausible.

A 14 to 16 foot day sailor would be ideal. Like a Hobie 14...

Re: Hull Ding Repair

It's pretty much just a cosmetic thing.

But, when your vessel's on the hard, why not go ahead and fix them? Don't assume you'll never get a match. You'll probably get pretty close.
