Re: Sudden inability to sail upwind

Did you raise the CB for the downwind leg?

Did it go back down for the upwind leg?

Did you try turning everything off and back on again? ;)

Re: Climbing into boat on a Mooring

My new boat also has high freeboard.

I'm going with the FenderStep as soon as my checkbook recovers from my line wrapping issue. Probably the single.

Re: Anyone in the keys....

I agree with the approach. Why bother with the money for a surveyor when a fellow SailNetter can dismiss the boat in 2 minutes for free?

I'd never buy a boat based on the review of an SN member,...

Re: What is proper dingy etiquette?

I wouldn't think twice about climbing over someone's dinghy to get to mine.

I would (and have!) borrowed a bailer from the dink next door.

I would never untie someone else's boat and take it...

Re: Ways to Get Boat From Long Island to Upstate NY

Hi Nancy,
Sounds like you've given up on the 22' O'Day, but FYI when I moved my 25' keel boat it was $580 for 60 miles:

($7 per foot to load/unload) + ($6.75 per road mile)

Don't give up on...

Re: "Spurs" Line Cutter or similar

Thanks for all the replies.

I've decided to go with the Shaft Shark rotary cutter.

I believe that Spurs is a better system, but the install is more involved and it is more expensive. I'd have...

Re: Stern Tube Repair on Bristol 29.9

I got started yesterday.

I sanded everything back to expose some epoxy all around the damage; then another little bit to expose the barrier coat. I also sanded the damaged area as smooth as I...

Re: Stern Tube Repair on Bristol 29.9

Short Term:
Sand down the damaged FG
Seal with epoxy
Cover that with barrier coat
Cover that with bottom paint
Splash!

Long Term: (winter layup)
Find a trim ring (???)
Build out the epoxy...

Stern Tube Repair on Bristol 29.9

My homeport welcomed my new boat by offering up a lobster pot buoy.

It was my first on this boat; precious seconds were lost wondering what the noise was and the engine stalled before I could get...

Re: "Spurs" Line Cutter or similar

Thanks, Bob.

It's not too bad, but it really took the shine off the homecoming. 200 yards into my home port! 4 miles from my mooring after 130 miles at sea. sigh.

I lost some kind of trim ring...

Re: Pre-sail/Safety Checklist???

I have a few checklists. The biggest one:

Before Leaving
Flush Head (if used) (set to ‘Rinse’ and pump 5-6 times)
Turn Off All Power Panel Breakers
Set Battery Switch to OFF
Close Through...

Re: "Spurs" Line Cutter or similar

The two types I've seen so far are:

"Spurs" which have a set of blades on the prop (spinning) and another set 1/8" upshaft (not spinning). When a line gets tangled, some sort of lever/wedge action...

"Spurs" Line Cutter or similar

I seem to be averaging twice a year for tangling with lobster pot lines.

This latest incident resulted in my boat being hauled for repairs.

Are line cutters effective? :confused:

Re: What does this do?

Yes. Maybe not from that boat; sometimes gear gets misplaced. I can see it sliding into a squared off strap or milled opening at the end of a control shaft. The little tab would keep it from sliding...

Re: What's cradle worth

One thing to think about is how your boat gets hauled and launched. My club uses a hydraulic trailer (just like boat transport companies use) and could not put my boat into a cradle if I had one.

Re: What does this do?

I like Bristol299 (he has great taste in boats) but I believe I have the answer.

A friend has a boat from the 50's and on the cockpit sole there is a slot with a cover. The cover is removed and a...

Re: What Vessel Was This In?

Back in my trailer sailing days, I liked to say the she would go to windward at 55mph.

Clearly, I was compensating.

I have a BoatUS membership and I think it is worth it just to have a voice on Capitol Hill.

Re: Sandwich Marina - 2 Questions

And, as many others have mentioned, the social aspects that weren't there when I was sailing my 18' day-boat off a mooring on a very small lake. I could get people to sail with me...

Re: Sunbrella Winter Cover

I don't own a Fairclough cover; I am not an expert.

I have heard that they don't shed snow; you have to go out after a storm and knock the snow off. Even 6" of snow is a lot of weight; if it half...
