I like the idea of the group, but I agree--we don't do anything. I'm still in Alameda.

Re: Morro? Monterey? Pismo? Weekend on the hook.

You may try Avila Beach (Port San Luis Obispo). Pretty cool place to anchor, for a fee, or for free in between the beach pier and the oil pier (as in oil company). A little rolly, but not bad....

Re: Living in Florida

You may wish to look at the Tallahassee area. Lived there for many years and loved it. There is a deep water marina in Carrabelle (and closer at St. Marks, but not so deep), and so much to do if you...

Re: Hawaii to SF question

Not sure what to say. I've sailed a bunch of coasts, East and West, but never to Hawaii. I don't do it to feel safe. I want to take my boat to Hawaii and have some time to do it. Just trying to get...

I've got a good idea of what sailing to Hawaii from SF will be like, and how long it may take, but I'm not sure of the trip back. I'm in a 37 ft, 13 ton, full keel, 6ft draft, double-ender hoping to...

Re: California dinghy registration madness

Being in California, It could be argued that it depends on the day, time, and place you arrive at the DMV. I registered a brand new, ebay-bought, 11' dingy, with an 1997 4

Re: Macwester 30 Wight MK1

Had a MacWester 28 that I restored and refitted. She handled weather better than some forty footers I've sailed on. Didn't go too weather that well, but so much room and so solid in a big sea....

Re: Fiberglass ..classic??

Great forum responses. For my two cents, I'd have to say that the word that stands out to me is 'refurbish'. If you're gonna refurbish and old boat, the old plastic is pretty tough, and more often...

Re: Truth on Teak Interior?

You can sand it, or wipe it with a bit of oxalic acid. It'll come back. The acid works easily and if scrub it on, then rinse it off it will bring out the color without bleaching. Leave it on and it...

Re: Anybody tried SeaClear II free nav software?

If it's not reading your gps, maybe go into the tools section, look at the 'comm' tab, and try manually checking the different ports. ONe of them should work.

Re: Cheap boat parts?

As far as line goes, guy on ebay has a store called "Discount Rope and Line". Haven't found anyone selling cheaper, and the rope is good. He's easy to work with as well for custom orders.
