Re: 2014 Sailing Season

I'm going to drive up to Point Lookout tomorrow and do a little maintenance in the late afternoon. Monday I should have all day to sail and I think it will be breezy. Hope to get at least one sail in...

Re: BVI Beef Island Anchorage

If it were me, I would have my guests take a taxi to the beach at Trellis Bay and meet them with the dinghy.

Nothing is more than a daysail away in the BVI.

Airport noise quiets down at night....

Re: St. Thomas & St John worth visiting by boat when in the BVI?

If you've got two weeks I think it may be worth the effort to spend a few days in the waters of St. John. St. John is a beautiful place and everything is better from the water. Checking in and out...

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

We stayed at Brewers (Mears) a few weeks ago. Thought the rate seemed pretty high. Seems it ran around 75.00 for our 30 footer. They may have been charging a premium because that was the weekend of...

Re: Free boat. What is it?

Google, huh. Why didn't I think of that. Thank you.

I was glad to see the specs. I tried to move it into my shop today and could barely budge it. Got my son to help tip it up and a pile of wet...

Free boat. What is it?

I was given this nice sailing dinghy. There is no HIN as it was hit by a lawn mower while in the dinghy rack and there's a small corner of the transom missing. It has a very tall rig. I'm hoping the...

Can't you just run the guitar through the aux jack on your boat stereo?

Re: USCG Doc Renewal Fee

Any former federal employees want to start a thread "Oh if taxpayers only knew what really goes on"?

By the way, I think 26 bucks is pretty cheap. I wish I could register my car that cheaply.

Re: Removing vinyl interior, refinishing.

We did like gravy on our wanderer. Like he said, it came out easy and the new went in easy with 3m spray adhesive. Been in the v birth two years now. Looks good. Just try to get as much of the old...

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

This weekend our son and his three year old daughter joined us for a weekend on the Potomac and St. Mary's River. Just a great time.

Re: Catalina 27 RPMs drop to zero

I have a similar problem.

Re: Advice From Young Punks

Apparently there are very few young punks subscribing to this forum. Maybe they have more important things to do, like pursuing careers, raising families, or sailing.

Re: Bimini

Our 66 Pearson Wanderer is similar to the Alberg on deck. We mounted a cheap bimini forward of the helm so it folds up easily and neatly over the forward part of the companionway cover. It is out of...

Re: Origo Electric/Alcohol Stove

If the price is right it can still be a good deal even if he doesn't wire the electric side. The alcohol side will still work fine.

Nothing wrong with propane if your boat is already equipped but...

Re: Origo Electric/Alcohol Stove

I had myself convinced that pressure alcohol was ok until I happened on a good deal on ebay for the origo combination stove. I would not like to go back to pressurized alcohol.

Re: Air Head Composting Toilet or Similar Mfg.

I ended up connecting the vent to the hole used for the former waste pumpout. I didn't see any point in putting another hole in the deck so I ran the hose to the existing hole and put a cowl vent...

Re: sail on or sail off?

Take it off, but do whatever it takes to quiet the furling gear. Last winter and spring everyone on our dock got to listen to the in mast gear on one boat clang away. Not to bad for me on the far...

I was in Urbana a week ago. Just a heads up, it's maybe impossible to get diesel and ice there. I couldn't believe the marinas didn't have either. If you need such supplies, better to try Carter...

Re: Vented loop vent confusion/waste system sanity check

Get an airhead. 1,000 dollars and a one hour install and you are on your way. Get rid of the thruhulls.
