Re: Interior Carpeting

I was thinking of replacing the carpet with cork squares. My other s/v is a Venture 23. What is the mold possibility with cork? I know Clorox does wonders on fiberglass.

Re: has anyone made a homemade catamaran and cross a ocean yet?

It was a year ago that I visited Sully's cat. What a nice job. Yes, it has been a large under taking. It takes time. From what I understand, he does not plan to cross an ocean.

Re: Do You Sail Solo?

Janice--Love your BLOG. You are doing a great job of moving about. Your boat has a lot of windage. Like a house boat, it will move in the wind. A sailboat captain has to worry about leeway. ...

Re: sailing braless!

Re: Will epoxy stick to PVC pipe?
