Re: Silly Anchoring Question

The problem here is that the anchorages get pretty crowded so to be able to use the bow/stern setup you have to be out of everybody else's swing; uncomfortably close to shore, rocks, further out into...

Re: Silly Anchoring Question

Nope, didn't say that at all. I can see how you might read it that way though.

Since you asked though, there have been times when it remained set with wraps around the shaft but most of the time...

Weight on the le'ward rail to put shape in the sail. Slightly less draft than full power settings on moderate days. Light sheets and settings for 50% draft location work best on our boat.

We run into this pretty often at Santa Cruz Island where the wind shifts 180deg many times a day on the west end. Our old Danforth set very well in the sandy bottom but nearly every time we raised it...

Ross is thorough for sure. I would use him for a pre-purchase survey but not for an insurance survey though

Re: Surveyor in Ventura, west coast shipper

I've used them but found them difficult to seal completely. Of course that was 20yrs ago, they may have improved since then. The last time I was at the boatyard chandlery they had a very nifty access...

Re: $10 DIY smoke alarm AND high water alarm

[QUOTE=TakeFive;2326242]Uh, I think you mean "plenty of conductance." Really high resistance would cause an open circuit and no tone.

There is plenty of resistance in tap water to transmit the electricity needed for an electric tone. I use electric sounders that operate on the same principles to measure water levels in wells. The...

Re: On the market for a new boat - please help

Val, I've been in your shoes a couple of times. The work you've listed will eat your 25-30k budget in the blink of an eye, especially if you hire the big stuff out.

You would have a hard time...

Re: Companionway hatch extrusion

G Tod, there's your problem. Mr Goggle knows jack about aluminum extrusions, try Google instead. There are literally thousands of profiles available if you own cutting tools.

Re: New favorite interior teak oil-Weiman vs. Formby

Best I can tell is that my normally dry boat took on a massive influx of water past the packing gland. The bilge pump should have been able to keep up but a 1' section of wire for the bilge pump...

Re: cal 25 help

There are some very good repair write-ups on the Cal 25 Association web page. The wood you're referring to is a headliner but it does add some rigidity to the deck. The interior FG skin is not...

Another note, I see that the original hatch and companionway slider are missing. Jensen used very thin plywood for the sole and mahogany veneers for cabinetry. If it has been wet inside that may be...

Re: cal 25 help

Blue over white may take up to 4 coats and don't be tempted to put on heavier coats to cover, it can turn into a disaster. Brightsides is an excellent one part paint and very easy to apply (if you...

Re: New favorite interior teak oil-Weiman vs. Formby

I don't mean to start a debate here but I would advise against the Wipe-On poly for marine use. It does absorb moisture and because of that will grow mold. I know this from very painful experience.

Re: Anchor light for steaming: legal?

I believe that arrangement is legal if you are motoring in inland waters in a vessel under 12meters in length. If you were sailing it would have been illegal.

The COLREGs have a provision for an...

Re: Blister Repair Conundrum

If it were my boat and if it were going to be out of the water over winter, I would ground out the individual blisters at haulout, let them dry over winter and fill them in spring.
