Re: Deck hardware: OK to attach with screws only?

1. It must be bolted through with a backplate on the inside.

2. The backplate needs to be supported from below, otherwise the blocks will lift/deform the deck.

Re: 2-blade Flexofold Problems

1. CRAZY expensive?? I doubt it.

2.I think you don't need to explain much.

3. If you are norwegian, call the Danish main office, don't see much of a language barrier there.

Believe me spam...

Re: 2-blade Flexofold Problems

E-mail is not (anymore) a safe form of communcation.
I guess they never received it, due to spam-filtration. (not OP's fault, but the trouble with exentsive spamming).

Re: Thru hull and seacock installation

Where are they located?

Deep Water is my fave.
It's a true story and honestly tells about the challenges and beauty of ocean sailing.

Re: Volvo Ocean Race.

It might seem simple, but it's not.
The charts in these areas are raster-images, and therefore the plotter as such does not know the depth. It is just images.

Re: Wet core in the hull - what are the options?

This thread is so predictable.
The usual suspects advising you to run away from a fast sinking boat. :)

Re: Boat Insurance Rant

With that kind of argument you will still be happy if you have to pay 10 times as much?

Insurance is a betting game, don't pay more than what is fair, unless you want to contribute to the bottom...

Re: Buying my first boat please help

It's quite "funny" to read all this about brokers and surveys as a Dane.
Thousands of second hand boats are sold here every year, and almost none is handled by a broker, nor is there any survey...

Re: Interior Paint- marine grade or not?

My previous boat was painted with non-marine enamel in the forepeak.

After the ship plowed through the boats at the marina, they headed out to sea, without as much as a VHF call.
