Re: Jib Sail Twist

Hudsonian is correct about adjusting to telltales. In heavy seas or wind you might want to open the slot by moving the car aft.

Garhauer makes great stuff at great prices.

Most people addressing this issue buy line with an amsteel/dyneema core and then strip the cover off the part they don't handle. might cost a little more.

Re: Chesapeake Bay Eats

Pizza at Vin 909 is outstanding!

For a more formal dinner we go to Carroll's Creek. Great food, interesting wine list that has a lot of choices in wines and prices and generally very good service.

Re: 2GM20F doesn't reach full rpms

Start with dirty bottom, prop or shaft. Next, prop pitch is excessive. I hope you have the kind that is adjustable in the water!

Re: TackTick Raymarine T104 Super Sail System installation problems

Re: Anyone buy laminate sails from China Sails?

The "cloth" is Club Race MXL, Gold Kevlar, Black Twaron, Mylar outer skins. Not cutting edge stuff, but it will certainly hold its shape longer than dacron.

I bought a bimini from them for my Pearson 28 about 5 years ago. Tubing was a little light, but more than adequate for the size of the boat. If Jim Wilson is still here on SN, ask him how it is...

Re: Cracks on deck? C&C

small cracks in the gelcoat are common. More cosmetic than anything to worry about. Learn on a smaller boat. 34 feet is plenty big!

A socket wrench with extension will prevent the short as long as you don't drop it.
