It's a Coronado 23mkII, 23' with a shoal draft keel. I don't know the wire thickness, though. I don't think I can swing the price tags on the ABI levers...

Another tedious question

A cat, surely; you can see the two pulpits, and a lifeline abeam between them. I've wondered how far these would drop when flooded... not too bad, really! It seems as though she's in the rocks - I'm...

Sailing in Vancouver area

As some of you might remember, I'm fairly well landlocked in Colorado, and often think forward to when I will relocate in order to live on a boat. Lately, I've been wondering about the Vancouver...

La Rochelle, France. Google is so cool!

Too many hints on that one, I think (assuming I'm correct).

The idea that when you spray fuel into the intake and she runs clearly points out that the engine is not getting fuel. Since you mentioned the black fuel, and the fact that the engine could...

Not to hijack the thread, but I often wonder how I'll teach myself everything I need to know to take off some day. I've read stories about storms that make me nervous about my 23' on a small lake,...

Sail repair recommendations

I have a couple of torn reef points in my mainsail that I need to get repaired. I was hoping to send it off while on vacation for a week, since the boat will be unused. Can anybody recommend a good,...

Does your rigging have this?

I have a stopper on each of my main shrouds that appears to stop at the top side of the spreaders. It looks like it is intended to put more tension on the under-spreader portion of the shroud than on...
