Re: Islander 36 projects in paradise!!!!!

Christian, the sheave looks like it might be for the outer-most winch on the starboard side, and I believe that's for the mainsheet. If you look closely at the pictures of this Islander:

Re: One Motor mount or all ?

I agree with the others. This is a fairly labor-intensive job, with most of it being in the removal and proper re-installation of the engine. Removing the mounts and installing the replacements is...

Re: port light leaking catalina 30

For quick fixes, some on the C25 site suggested flowable silicone, which can be found at auto parts stores. I did that on my C25, and it seemed to work. On the Allmand, I have rebedded with...

Re: Sailing The Point Pleasant Canal

TLF, if all else fails, is based in Toms River. They were great with my Catalina. The short distance to/from your boat, plus the short distance of the move from Sandy Hook to...

Re: Electrical 101

You may even be able to pick up a charger on Craigslist. If you're in a saltwater area, I'd avoid the stuff from Harbor Freight or some of the other, inexpensive chargers. Get a good quality marine...

Re: Stupid questions about launch day

I used a wire brush and PB Blaster. I have a really strong stainless steel brush which worked very well. I also have a drill-mounted set that I could have used, but that wasn't necessary. I think...

Re: Towing Services

I've owned sailboats for 2.25 seasons so far. I ran aground the first day of the first full season with our last boat. I didn't really NEED the tow, and it turned out that TowBoatUS couldn't help me...

Re: From Dinghy Sailor to Cruising

I generally agree with Delta's comments. However, it is important to point out that you need to clearly define your needs. For example, will you most often be sailing alone or with one, two, or...

Re: Topclimber bosun's chair

Have a halyard attached to the harness and ask someone to belay you (take up the slack on the way up, give you slack on the way back down) just in case. If you have two friends, do it with two...

Re: Sea Delivery from SFO to PNW how feasible?

Med, I'm sorry this thread went so far afield. To the extent that my attempt at a joke early on contributed to that, I am sorry. I hope it will get back on topic now - I was enjoying reading about...

Re: Singlehanding Pedestal Steering

I believe AC pulls from the most recent NOAA charts. To the extent the charts are maintained, the AC version should be accurate, or at least accurate enough for planning purposes. As you said, you...

Re: Life's Next Adventure

Although I am among the "do it in a dinghy first" crowd, I agree with most of what Don said, especially if you live close enough to a body of water that will let you get out and sail her. We bought...

Re: Hello from New Jersey

Given your location, have you considered Liberty Sailing School too? I'm not trying to talk you out of any of the others, and I have no affiliation with any of the schools. Just thinking that it...

Re: Hello from New Jersey

Christina, BB is a great place to be. (sorry, bad joke, but it was serious!) We were there for part of last season and I liked sailing there. I'm looking forward to splashing soon!

Re: New Allmand 31 owner aboard

Welcome aboard, and welcome to Allmand ownership! I have the M16 (actually, it's the 5416, which is the predecessor to the M16), so I can't directly answer your question. However, a quick...

Re: Looking at Sailboats

In the end, the decision is your to make. But what a lot of us like to do here is to ensure that you don't make a bad decision, or one that will scare you off from sailing. A 45' is a BIG boat. ...

Re: New to sailing in Maryland.

When we bought our first boat, a Catalina 25 with a swing keel, we sailed in a bay in NJ that was never more than about 4-5', and which frequently came close to drying out at low tide (except...

Re: Looking at Sailboats

I'll even go one step smaller than James's suggestion - go with a 14-18' dinghy. You can pick one up for a couple hundred dollars on Craigslist in many parts of the country. Take a summer and learn...
