Re: Zanshin, Killarney_Sailor & Sea Life meet in St Martin

I think the dog in your signature could handle four beers!

Looks like a great time. I have met a few people from here.

Re: Visa confusion

It is very confusing, and I don't really understand it myself. The last time I was in Europe was in 1987 so back then you just go visitors visa, and did not worry, I think mine was 3 years, though I...

Re: NY/CT/LIS Boatyard & Marina help?

Well one thing to keep in mind, where you put it in now, is not where you have to keep it in the future. So you can try one place and if it is not convenient or does not make you happy then find...

Re: 1964 Columbia 29 as First Boat

well if that is the one, I can see why they may need a bigger boat, she looks a bit pregnant! Love the shot of the surprised look over the shoulder with the cell phone. Some odd photos to include. I...

Re: Is this a dumb idea?

Yea, I was thinking just slide it off the trailer and flip it over, and paint, then flip it back. But I did not want to say it out loud! :D

Seems there was someone talking about doing that with a...

Re: Hunter b&r rig chain plates

I would suggest contacting a good surveyor, I have never heard that heat made fiberglass stronger, that is a new one for me. Are they stress cracks in just the gel coat, or in the actual fiberglass?...

Re: Dead engine hour meter

The thing I like about this is it could be mounted next to the old one. You would know exactly how many hours total (by adding the two) and how many hours since the rebuild. The other nice thing is...

Re: high HP engine on a sailboat

Unless the hull is a planing hull, it will not go much over the hull speed. There are basically two kinds of hulls on boats, displacement and planing (well there are some partially in-between but for...

Re: Hunter 27 - A Little Look Please?

Now that is a nice looking boat, but is more "basic" than the Hunter. Cals have a great reputation. I would prefer a diesel, but the atomic 4 is such a reliable old beast that they are hard to beat....

Re: The Voyages of Paragon, Season 2

I think too that Youtube's compression may exacerbate it as well. Likely distorts the contrasty scenes more and makes it look worse than it did originally. It can really do lots of funny stuff to...

Re: Defender's Annual Warehouse Sale!

Well Defender has very good customer service, is local (or not too far) for a lot of the people here and I think when they have sales (normal sales, not this one) they can have very good prices. My...

Re: What's the *second* best way to keep spiders off your boat?

Well I think Wombats eat rabbits, so that would take care of that, but then he will drink up all your rum, eat all your food and keep you up all night telling you stories about sailing down under so...

Re: Any opinions on RK Industries 1978 21 ft

A boat that size I think it really does not matter what kind it is, it is all about condition. It is not like the investment is so much (I know most around here are not made of money, but we are not...

Re: Crew wanted from Philippines to Fiji

I don't understand the cost sharing aspect? You need crew to get your boat to places, yet you expect them to pay? I can sort of understand the sharing of provisions, but 25 euros a day to pay to work...

Re: Trailer brake fire!

I had the Groit's Garage brake bleeder, never liked it. Apparently a friend did as he never returned it after borrowing it. It did a good job of flushing the lines, but never would get hard to get...

Re: Hunter 27 - A Little Look Please?

Yes the outboard is likely due to the fact that the inboard is shot. Figure a new inboard installed will be at least $10,000 or so, rebuilt all done by professionals (engine taken out rebuilt and...

Re: C30 pricing data?

20 to 35,000 you should be able to get a very late model one I would think, and expect it to be in extremely good shape. I know of an early 80's that sold for $2,400 with diesel, and in good shape...

Re: Ideas for a small, simple, offshore, family cruiser.......

I would look at charter boats, if you really need three separate cabins. Lots of 38 to 40 footers that have three cabins as the charter companies try to squeeze in the most births as they can into a...

Re: What is a Cal 29 worth that needs the beam replaced?

Well I think you need to contact a professional to find out what it would cost to replace. Even if you plan on doing the work yourself. Subtract that from a low price of a real recently sold price...

Re: Yamaha 15hp vs Honda 15hp outboard?

Well since you are going to buy outside the US, perhaps a 2 cycle would be best. Though I don't know if they are available in Europe though. They are much lighter, simpler and tend to be more...

Re: South Coast 22 vs Catalina 22

Sounds good, at that size range the only thing that really matters is condition. Most any parts should be available as most "components" are made by a third party. hatches, ports, winches and what...

Re: Sailboat hits Power Line in Cocoa, Florida!

What kind of boat was that? Looks a little bigger than 30 foot as well. There is not a lot you can see, but it certainly does not look like it was a derelict boat at all. The topsides look to be...

Re: Where to anchor in Keys?

Sounds good to me, but most people's thought of visiting the Keys is Key West, and other "commercial" places. I must admit that the uninhabited places hold much more interest to me, though I might be...
