Re: How do they get the jobs?

Your limits of approach for power lines is ten feet plus one inch for every 1000 volts.
I don't know how many volts we are dealing with here but let's say there is 100,000v in the those lines. That...

Re: Leaky hatches.

There already is a rise in the fiberglass deck all the way around both hatch holes. They shed water quite well.
The biggest issue is the lack of overlap the hatch flange has over the deck and the...

Re: Leaky hatches.

I think that is the way I am going to have to go with this, Desert Rat.
I will fill the gap with the epoxy putty and then make a ring or collar that sticks out further than the hatches flange does....

Leaky hatches.

So we've had a bit of rain here lately. Nine inches in four days.

I removed both of them today and the...

Re: Foot switches for an Anchor Windlass

I thought about adding a hand held, hard wired remote that I could stow in the anchor locker but playing twister on the foredeck with one hand is difficult. If I'm going to play twister I want both...

Re: Really, $1000.00 for foulies?

Having a good set of foulies allows us to use our boat more.
Where we live we get 50-100" of rain a year. That's one to two inches a week on average. Some places get even more than that.
We decided...

Re: Windlass side loads

I have a Lofran's windlass on our boat. I'm not sure what model it is but it does have 800 lbs. of pulling force. That's a lot.
Our boat was also never intended to have a windlass so it has been...

Re: Quieting a dinghy at anchor

If you have a spinnaker pole you can make a harness up for your dinghy and hang the dinghy from the pole over the side of your boat.
This will keep things quiet and deter theft.

Re: Late 80's C&C 37+/40, Any Opinions?

In my opinion C&C made awesome boats. Some are better than others.
The 37+40 is nice in that it has an aft cabin and is a fast boat that sails well. It is not without it's problems though.
