Re: harness and tether

Yeah, but don't be the guy who, during his memorial service, they say, "but he saved $50 by making his own harness and tether...". They wouldn't put it on your tombstone because they probably...

Re: harness and tether

Suggest a Wichard ORC tether (Wichard ORC Bermuda Race Tether (http://www.landfallnavigation.com/swt10.html)) and a Mustang Ocean Series Hydrostatic vest with integrated harness. A crotch strap is...

Re: Calling all crapper experts

I re-plumbed the head on Grey Goose in 2013 using Sealand Odorsafe hose with some hard PVC in places. Very happy. The hose is not cheap. Getting it on fittings was a LOT easier with heat and a...

Re: splitting a oday mariner 19

Your original question wasn't very clear. Is the hull/deck joint leaking? This sounds like it could fast become a 'high investment/low yield' project. Pictures would help.

Re: splitting a oday mariner 19

You beat me to it. :) But to the OP's question, it all depends on the person whom you're splitting it with (I assume you're asking about joint ownership and not physically splitting the boat). Even...

Re: 1974 P30 Compression post

Difficult to tell from the photos whether the repair eliminated all the material which may have been compromised. What material is used for the shims inserted below the compression post? G10,...

Re: Gelcoat Hull Interior?

I've used white Bilgekote in areas below the waterline. More visible areas I used Interlux Brightsides with excellent results. Last weekend I did the interior of galley cabinets -- really freshens...

Re: Pearson 30 Stuffing Box

Stuffing box access is easiest thru the quarterberth -- absolutely no need to cut anything. Suggest finding another mechanic.

Re: Carpet in a Sailboat?

In our P30, I put a decorative runner down in the main cabin -- picked it up from Bed Bath and Beyond on a sale and added some non-slip backing tape. Really doesn't get dirty, but I'll shake it out...

Re: can i convert a working jib into a working main

Bacon Sails in Annapolis (Bacon Sails & Marine Supplies (http://baconsails.com)). Look up your boat's manufacturer and model and you'll find plenty of used mains that will fit your boat.

Re: Mainsail?

You'll find at least as many opinions as there are lofts. I have no personal experience with Lee apart from getting quotes from them. Keep in mind that unless you use a local loft, you'll be...

Re: Mainsail?

I'm assuming you're asking about the mainsail. Yup, it's most likely a Precision 23 sail which, if cut to spec, will be undersized for your Bristol. Comparing the two boats on Sailboatdata.com is...

Re: Jib sheets stiff

I suggest a somewhat loose daisy-chain in your sheets before washing so they don't come out in a big rat's nest. I use Dreft or Woolite on my sheets and add some Oxyclean as well. Don't put them in...

Re: Was the freighter messing with me, or did I mess up?

One additional thought, and something I've also stressed teaching my kids to drive -- always be predictable. This is where holding your course as the stand-on vessel is important; or, if you are...

Re: Flying Scot - did I buy the wrong boat?

A Flying Scot is a great first boat for you and your family. They are beamy, roomy and quite stable for a CB boat of that size. That said, in all but light air, a Scot is more of an active rather...

Re: RR Halyard Wrap..and SNAP! Help Needed.

No idea what kind of furler that is -- pictures of the drum would help (the plastic piece in your photos suggests it's quite old/worn though). Your headstay should definitely be replaced, no...

Re: Main and Jib Trailing Edge Flapping

At 25 knots, you should most certainly be reefed. Reefed or not, making certain the leech lines are tightened will help, but also be sure to tighten the outhaul to help flatten the sail (and the...

Re: Bang, ouch

Trying to flee is a reflection of his ethics. My concern is that it would never be right and you would have zero recourse to have it corrected. Get a pro to do it. If it's not right, they will fix...
