Re: Attaching StarBoard to gel coat and fiberglass

Having done this just recently with my hatches and windlass the only way to get a good seal is to mechanically attach the Starboard with screws or bolts.
Any good bedding compound or butyl will work...

Re: Former HMCS Annapolis sinking

Well Sailormon6, I'll answer your question with a question.
"Have you ever walked through a park?"
And Rocky Mountain Breeze,
I find your comparison has no merit. This ship was sold by our...

Re: Former HMCS Annapolis sinking

I will never understand how dumping our garbage in a "Marine Park" can possibly be considered a great accomplishment.
The only difference is once sunk you cannot see it, but if dragged up onto the...

Re: Going to look at a new to us boat.

Well Medsailor,
I don't think this is a matter of convincing him to sell as much as it is the current owner looking for his baby's new owner. He's not going to sell it to just anyone.
He is looking...

Re: Going to look at a new to us boat.

Well I'm going to guess it's ours, I just have to wait until the owner is ready to part with it. Hopefully that will be this year. That's ok with us. We are not going anywhere while we still have our...

Re: Going to look at a new to us boat.

Other than the price the biggest thing that deters me from the new C&C's is the extensive use of composite materials. All the spars are carbon fibre, even the galley countertop, dinette table and...

Re: Going to look at a new to us boat.

Thanks Rob, I hope this works out too.
The owner used to work at the Bruckmann Custom Shops. He took delivery of Tidewater from Cuthbertson himself.
I'm a huge C&C fan, have been for many decades....

Re: Going to look at a new to us boat.

That's correct. There were four sisterships built. Bedlam, Manitou, Tidewater and one other who's name slips my mind right now.
The original of course was Redjacket. The first Canadian winner of the...

Going to look at a new to us boat.

After two and a half years of discussion, we will be going to have a very close look at a boat I have had my eye on for a while.

Re: How do they get the jobs?

Your limits of approach for power lines is ten feet plus one inch for every 1000 volts.
I don't know how many volts we are dealing with here but let's say there is 100,000v in the those lines. That...

Re: Radar on 18-20 ft sailboat

So long as the radar is mounted above your heads you will be ok.
Radar ping is a real thing and after long exposure to radar waves it can effect your inner ear.
The biggest problem I see with...

Re: Leaky hatches.

Well, I managed to get the gap cleaned out of the old filler and filled with epoxy putty. I've never worked with this type of product before and I have to say what an awesome way to fill a hole.

Re: Leaky hatches.

There already is a rise in the fiberglass deck all the way around both hatch holes. They shed water quite well.
The biggest issue is the lack of overlap the hatch flange has over the deck and the...

Re: Leaky hatches.

I think that is the way I am going to have to go with this, Desert Rat.
I will fill the gap with the epoxy putty and then make a ring or collar that sticks out further than the hatches flange does....

Leaky hatches.

So we've had a bit of rain here lately. Nine inches in four days.
My hatch in the head has sprung a leak and the one in the salon has become suspect to leaking.
I removed both of them today and the...

Re: Foot switches for an Anchor Windlass

Anyway, Nanaimo's Harbour Chandlery is...

Re: Really, $1000.00 for foulies?

Having a good set of foulies allows us to use our boat more.
Where we live we get 50-100" of rain a year. That's one to two inches a week on average. Some places get even more than that.
We decided...
