Painted boats can look great. However, they will need to be repainted at some point. Price should reflect this.

Re: Sinking Feeling

Good point. Most cockpit drains will only have one hose/seacock per drain, whereas, the engine seacock will have many connections and components that can fail... the strainer being one. Therefore,...

Re: Jib sheets too short, splice on extra line?

I had an expensive (for me) halyard that was long enough for the part under tension, but needed a bit more tail (don't we all). I wanted to splice on an old line, but, there is no way that was going...

Re: Valiant 32 problem with Fire Retardant in resin.

Considering the boat is 36 years old, and has not fallen appart under the feet of the previous owner(s), maybe it is not a fatal problem. My take: You can work on the blisters. They may, or may not...

Re: Bristol 34 - blue water boat?

Any idea how the LPS (or AVS, or whatever) of the B34 compares to other 'bluewater worthy' boats (Tayana 37, etc.)?

Re: Painting Mast

I would be suprised if my mast is anodized. Doesn't have any chalky white build-up. Aluminum doesn't tend to rust fast because it forms its own thin protective layer. I second Minnewaska, painted...

Re: Holding and water tank gauges

I think next months Good Old Boat is going to have an article on diagnosing engine guage issues (according to their newsletter).

Re: Grill or anchor?

I haven't ever used charcoal on a boat. Any safety concerns with that?

Re: Strong wbbing termination--what is it good for?

If your jacklines are tight enough, do you think there would be any creep? Also, begs the question, could I find parts to cobble this together myself? Also interesting that one part is galvanized,...

Re: Cruising Lake MI (Traverse Bay) suggestions

I visited Sleeping Bear Dunes via automobile. I was really impressed with the monster dune on the shore itself. Regarding the trip up; you could make the trip across the lake do-able in daylight if...

Re: Downsizing to 25' to 30'

[quote]

I think that was a W28. But with sprit and boomkin (is there one?), it is probably closer to his original boat as far as slip fees, storage, etc.

Re: Cockpit Drains Newbie

I think you understand these are the wood plugs used in an emergency to plug a thru hull hole (you would need to get the leaking hose off to put the plug in). The wood swells when wet, forming a...

Re: Cockpit Drains Newbie

My Bristol 27 has hoses attached to 'volcano' tubes. Still way below the water line. I think if I was going off shore I would put a proper thru-hull and seacock on. I wouldn't worry about it. ...

Re: Rethinking Jacklines

I have hanked-on foresails. I go to the bow a lot. This exposes me to the bow a lot more, however, I am more practiced at making the trip. This is another discussion, but, it seems those with...

Re: Rethinking Jacklines

I like the idea of triangulating tethers at the bow. You could have two perminantly attached tethers that meet in the middle with one clip. They would only be long enough to kneel and reach the bow....

Re: Steel vs Fiberglass

VW Karman Ghia's tend to naturally devolve into boats. Usually the rust along the rocker panels is bad enough that the body separates from the floor. Karman Ghia's were coach built. That means the...

Re: Question about spreader/rigging geometry

I think Floater is saying that the two angles are not equal. Same on my boat. The spreaders are perpendicular to the mast, therefore, they bisect the shroud forming a more acute angle on the top...

Re: How to put epoxy for screw mounting into a void???

You could drill an over-sized hole on the top, thicken the epoxy until it is like peanut butter, scoop it in to overflowing, cure, sand off the top, and then drill the hole.
