Re: Refurbishing CCA boats

Well- Soda Blast and barrier coat turned into a bigger grind and fair job than anticipated as some PO yahoo had just rolled resin on instead of the barrier coat that we thought was there. But at...

Re: What Happened to the Pearson35 Web Site?

You must have gotten to it quick- I was checking daily for awhile and it never came up as available.
All to the better. If I ever see that disc I'll be happy to help get the data back up and on...

Re: "New" Cal Boats Made in USA?

My suggestion- buy up some salvage hardware and find someone to manufacture OEM replacements for the great old CCA and slightly newer labels. Things that break that you can take off, put back in the...

Re: What's your Cape Horn boat choice?

There are some Carbon cutters under construction now that look pretty sweet for that voyage. Under 50k would be tough. Is that purchase price or outfitted? Outfitted you're looking at an old Allied,...

My off season list is shorter this year, too. The cockpit I built the winter before has been given a good test for a season. I'm very pleased with the results. It's going gray.

Re: Refurbishing CCA boats

Very cool. Wish I could find some info on POs on my Pearson.

Re: Clueless Sailors?

As an probably mostly true, but over general, statement- near all road bikers are paying income tax (or their parents are). Those things aren't cheap.

Again- no different than runners, motorcycles, toddlers, etc. It sucks, but it's life and not just bikers. Fact is that cities are unsafe and people do stupid things because people are people. But...

Re: Clueless Sailors?

This is the problem. Yes there are bikes that blow stop signs- there are cars that do that, too, and just as frequently around here. And the rules of the road are the same for the bikes- they have...

Re: How Unsafe are Full Keeled boats.

There is some recent research that full keelers may 'trip' if they are hit by big beam on waves more than the fin keelers (don't have it at my fingertips, but remember reading and seeing referenced...

If I had to get it on board and lashed down, I'd buy a Puffin. Row well, motor well. I had a hypalon wood slat floor, did fine until the seams gave up. Could have fixed it, but got a deal on a PVC...
