Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

No one can answer your question without knowing what your goals are. You tell us what you want to to do, but not the reason or the ends toward which these actions are directed.

Re: Catalina or Hunter?

Why have you already limited yourself to Catalina or Hunter?

Why not consider a Cal, C&C, Ericson, Pearson, Sabre, Tartan or any of the other fine sailboats out there?

Re: House Battery Talk

I second the recommendations for flooded batteries and a solar panel.

You can buy a nice deep cycle at Costco for around $100. I use two in a bank with the switch on both.

Re: Still Pond Creek

I anchored in front of the Coast Guard station and my boat draws 4.5 ft., so I know there is deeper water there - about 6-7 ft.

Re: Coastal sailing without depth finder?

I am a minimalist and I, too, stick to the basics.

A depth sounder is a basic, minimal piece of equipment, like a compass and a paper chart.

The fact that it has now become debatable shows how...

Re: Coastal sailing without depth finder?

Are these depth sounder threads a joke, or have sailors really become that stupid that they question the need for a depth sounder?

Yes, you need a depth sounder. It is second in importance to a...

Re: Concerned about condition of the mast before buying. Advice?!

Don't buy it. It is a buyer's market. There are plenty of good boats available. Why buy a problem/potential problem?

Re: Comparing mid 80's Hunters to mid 90's Hunters

The mid-80s Hunters break apart faster, but the mid-90s Hunters sink faster, so it is 6 of one, half dozen of the other. Either build period is a good choice for the proverbial hole in the water. ...

Re: Exceeding Hull Speed in Flat Water: Fantastic Sailing in Ideal Conditions

That is a thru-hull, paddle-wheel driven speedometer, not GPS, in the video. The paddlewheel speedometer measured 7.9 kts.

My GPS unit is in the photo measured a top speed of 7.5 kts.

Re: Is the Newport 27' a suitable liveaboard for a small family?

I find it comical that some of you judge the appropriateness of a child's environment by the child's level of happiness.

The child might be happiest if the child were allowed to eat chocolate cake...

Read the initial post. The OP refers repeatedly to Hunter's use of "epoxy", not epoxy putty or an epoxy mixture.
