Re: Don't have to be rich to sail

Capta,
You are correct in that there is a lot of value in being self sufficient. I have owned a boat for 9 months. I expect that several years from now I will be much more capable of fixing my own...

Re: Don't have to be rich to sail

Boyer - you started a great thread.

Re: Surveyor near Ft. Lauderdale?

I bought my boat in St. Petersburg last year and had it surveyed there. The surveyor was excellent. He spent about 9 hours on my Catalina 30. Extremely detailed survey and the same for the report....

Re: Suggestions for 28-32 cruiser?

CWhit,
I don't need to tell you about S. Florida weather, but I have found that we do just fine without A/C when we anchor out most of the year (have not done it in June-August). My family is as...

Re: Suggestions for 28-32 cruiser?

I bought a 1989 Catalina 30 last year for sailing Biscayne Bay. It fits most your needs you listed, except for the A/C (can be added) and the walk-through transom. I believe that starting in 1990,...

Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

Jingo
The proper link is www.teakliteflooring.com
They charge $30 per foot. $35 if one wants it permanently glued to sole.

Using a heat gun on teak

Has anyone used a heat gun in place of sanding on teak?

I sanded and re-varnished a couple of teak items on my Catalina 30. However, after seeing how long it took, I have been shy about taking on...

Re: Blotches on deck - can you identify

Here is the answer from the boatyard. Opinions welcomed!

I have seen this staining issue before, it is caused by dirt/contaminates getting in the pores of the gelcoat. As boats age the gelcoat...

Re: Inconvenient Bahama sailing

You will not lose the $1000. That money is a sunk cost. It was already spent. It should not be part of your decision.

Re: Blotches on deck - can you identify

Re: Blotches on deck - can you identify

I misspoke. The waxing was of the hull and cabin top, the horizontal parts.
