Re: Drilling out stainless steel screws :(

It took me a while to learn how to do this. Our last mast had a lot of hardware screwed in with self tapping stainless screws, but no sealant. After at least 15 years, they were welded in place, so I...

Re: gate valve won't close - 1977 Newport 28

I can attest to that! We spent over $1100 on 3 seacocks and 2 thru hulls from them. They are of great quality, but really expensive.

I've had good luck finding Wilcox valves for cheap, although...

Re: Temporary stanchion repair

They are standard stanchions, they come down through the deck and bolt to a backing plate beneath the deck. In most areas of the boat, they are fairly easy to access, it's just this one (of...

Re: Temporary stanchion repair

The stanchion is split horizontally, not vertically. I think someone ran it into something, but I really have no clue how it was so badly damaged.

I like the idea of trying to get something down...

Re: Temporary stanchion repair

Yea, I'm sure that'd help.

I don't have a photo. The stanchion is cracked/broken about halfway up the tubing, between the base and the top of the stanchion. The stanchion base is fine, the crack...

Temporary stanchion repair

We have a broken lifeline stanchion that needs to be repaired, but getting to the stanchion is kindof a challenge. I need a temporary fix until we can spend the time to get the whole thing off for...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

IIRC you are a pilot, right? Can you imagine what sailing life would be like if the FAA was in charge of mandating inspections and training for boats?

Every time I think about licensing or...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

As I understand it, they had medicine on board to treat the kids if they got sick (per the sister). When that failed to produce results, they called for help.

As for the boat, the reports of what...

At what point is a boat overweight?

I know this is a rather broad question and depends heavily on the design, but I'm curious.

If you take a traditional design cruising boat, say 30ft and 10,000 lbs, at what % of it's original...

Re: Golden Gate 30

So I hear. We looked at a Bodega 30 that the PO had sailed to NC from CA. There really aren't many of them on this coast, that I've found anyway.

North Sails furling units

We are looking at a boat that has a furler unit branded with the North Sails logo. i believe it may have been made by Harken, it appears fairly old, but it definitely has the North Sails logo on it....

Re: Golden Gate 30

Thanks, Bob.

I was a little nervous about calling him, but I eventually did and he was very nice. He had good things to say about the build quality that Odyssey used, so that's good.

Golden Gate 30

I was wondering if anyone has sailed a Golden Gate 30 or it's sisters (Bodega 30, Bay Island 30, or Farallon 29)? What were your impressions?

Interesting design, I ran across them the other day...

Re: Am I my Brothers Keeper?

Re: Am I my Brothers Keeper?

Take the boat on a sea trial with them, see how they handle it. They may surprise you or it may surprise them. They may realize pretty quick that it's too much for them to handle.

Re: Adding a auxiliary outboard.

Oh, the best OB bracket for the money is the Garhauer OB-125.

I think I paid $180 for it and the quality is far superior to any of the others I looked at, but at about half the price. I do not...

Re: Adding a auxiliary outboard.

Make sure you use a mount that is spring loaded to assist with the motors weight and has enough travel to get deep in the water.

How thick is your transom? I'd think a 1in backing plate would...

Re: Price of boats... Wow!!!

I believe the Dana 24 molds were listed for $10k. They are still for sale AFAIK.

I'm not sure about the others, they were bought some time ago and I seem to recall it being a private transaction.

Re: Price of boats... Wow!!!

Regarding size, the Dana 24 has been discontinued and the molds are up for sale. Kindof sad, really :(

Also, there is another company that has bought the molds to two prior PSC boats, the Flicka...

Re: Price of boats... Wow!!!

I would wonder if litigation protection would be part of the cost as well.

Re: Radio controlled sailboat models

The stakes are higher with RC aircraft, especially planes. They are a lot faster and the light control responses means you can end up nose first into the ground pretty easily. The worst that happens...
