Re: How did you get your spouse to embrace the cruising life?

I met my wife at the marina where I kept my first little sailboat. Most of her sailing experience was in dinghies or as crew on tall ships. There wasn't much convincing needed to for either of us to...

Re: Dealing with Birds at your Dock

We've tried most of the methods mentioned: CD's, the owl, a rubber snake, which was evidently carried away by something as it was there one day, gone the next; twanging the shrouds seems to work too,...

Re: Florida is at it again

I moved away from the Keys/S. Florida in '98 as it was my impression this had already happened...but not because of it...there were better economic opportunities north and away from FL. That said, I...

Re: Missing Sailor Rescued

Reports I've seen have it as an Alberg 35. I've seen a few small pics of the boat posted here and elsewhere, from a prior listing for sale, but haven't taken a closer look.

To me, there's just...

Re: Pacific Seacraft - three (3) models. Comments?

That's right! It's the 31 interior that reminds of the Dana 24. I was on a delivery crew for one of the early 31's. We took it from St. Pete to Miami for the boat show; was around '90 or '91 if...

Re: Pacific Seacraft - three (3) models. Comments?

And BTW, I've seen a few of the Orion's around over the years, but can't comment too much on them. They always felt to me to be an extended version of the Pacific Seacraft Dana 24. I don't know how...

Re: Mast Shipping fall 2015-South from Oswego or Chicago

After some consideration, I will. The unpleasantness of my experience is now behind me and it is, for all intents and purposes, a closed case.

My PM was to suggest the OP avoid a company known as...

Re: Divider in the chain locker on a PSC 34

Our configuration on Jo Beth is the same, as would be expected. We also built and installed a plywood divider but have recently removed it since we've decided to carry only a Rocna at the bow and a...

Re: Confession time...

For these reasons exactly, and for ease of stowage. I'm planning to add a couple of lengths to the damage repair kit for emergency stay replacement, etc.

Re: Confession time...

Nice video...and helpful for me as well, not so much with the running backs on our 34, but how the staysail sets up with the mast pulpits, which we've just installed on Jo Beth.

Re: Ga sailing School

As have I. The GA coast, with its fluky winds, shallow waters, and strong currents is fantastic place to learn to sail. Enjoy, although by now, I imagine you've finished up. Hope you had a good...

Has anyone replaced the dome light bulbs (dual bulb configuration) with LED's? The only conversion kits I've found (Dr. LED) have one large LED array and a base connector as opposed to pins.

Re: boom for C37

If it's a LeFiell, it's certainly worthwhile to take a look at LeFiell. We've replaced our mast & boom with new sections as part of our refit on our '84 34. The pricing was very, very reasonable. The...

Re: Varnish removal: should I, could I?

On Jo Beth, we varnished for a few years, then let it get away from us. We typically used a combination of heat gun and scrapers and did reasonably well. We were always at the dock, plugged in to...

Interesting. I'll be interested to hear what he says, and to hear about your keel dropping experience! That's quite the project.

Yes, the boats are beautiful, in and out of the water. I noticed...

Florida Fish & Wildlife Anchoring Survey

Many of us pass through, or cruise in FL waters on our trips, whether it's a return from the Bahamas or Caribbean, or FL itself is the destination.

The fact that FL has been a sort of 'wild-west'...

Re: Keel repair

Wow. That's worth a call to Thumper at PS. He's been able to help us a lot with our boat's history during our refit. If you need his number, send a PM and I'll pass it along to you.

Re: Vetus Deck ventilator

Perhaps a tad late to the party, but we also replaced our mushrooms (we went from the original Vetus cowl assemblies to dorades and boxes) and had no issues with sizing.

Re: Bronze portlights suddenly oxidize on interior

I think its very unlikely the cause of the discoloration you've described is due to electrolysis or galvanic action. For such an environment to develop, the metals must be immersed in an electrolyte,...

Interesting find and good to know. They do look exactly like those we have on Jo Beth.
