Re: Anchor light for steaming: legal?

I believe that arrangement is legal if you are motoring in inland waters in a vessel under 12meters in length. If you were sailing it would have been illegal.

The COLREGs have a provision for an...

Re: Blister Repair Conundrum

In my case it was a problem with the lay-up timing. The builder allowed the gelcoat to sit too long before laying up the glass. I did the blister repair exactly a year after the haul-out survey and...

Re: Blister Repair Conundrum

If it were my boat and if it were going to be out of the water over winter, I would ground out the individual blisters at haulout, let them dry over winter and fill them in spring.

Re: So where the heck do you shower???

The head on my 34 is a "Wet room" with a shower nozzle and drain but we don't use it much as a shower, creates lots of humidity that is very tough to get rid of . We sponge bathe in the head, shower...

Re: Living Aboard MacGregor26

I sailed a Venture 24 for years including crossings to Catalina and eventually some short point to point ocean races. knockdowns are a fact of life on a boat that light but she would bounce right...

Re: The impossible happened

The president of Schaefer Marine is a dock mate. He ripped me a new one one day when he noticed I was hoisting a crew member up the mast with a halyard and snap shackle..., he didn't notice the back...

Re: Smallest boat you can live with

I could be perfectly happy cruising short distances on my Cal 25. It has a dedicated galley and a small head with a flushing toilet so I don't have the "Camping" feel of dragging everything out of...

Re: Dead batteries?

Was your multi meter reading DC? If you don't switch over from AC you will get screwy reading.

Re: Teak project started

Nice work Sabreman.

I have plenty of varnish on the boat. The head is finished with Captain's varnish as are some of the high use areas. The head had some mold growth and it wiped off with no...

Re: What material is best for boat yards?

3/4" crush. It's very angular, has lots of fines and compacts very well. It holds up to traffic and because it compacts so well it doesn't tend to "Kick Up".

Beware of Minwax Wipe on Poly. It grows mold and mildew in damp environments like it was designed to.

Re: Teak project started

Spar urethane is very durable and can be built up very fast due to quick drying. For the last coat or two you may want to use a traditional varnish with better UV inhibitors or the urethane can turn...

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

Finally had a chance to watch the movie. It was about as technically accurate as any movie I've seen lately. I always have to turn part of my brain off, which I did with this one before hitting...

Re: Anyone know the make of this sailboat?

Two weekends ago we had a beautiful sail on a light wind day, 5-8kn, and were at near hull speed all day. Our neighbor was also out in his hunter 45. When I asked him how his sail went he said "Non...

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

Re: Any safe way to buy a boat when neither of you live close?

It's less about the price and more about the potential liability. However, at less than 10k a broker would add significantly to the cost. I like the idea of using an escrow company but have no idea...

Re: Any safe way to buy a boat when neither of you live close?

The simple answer is yes, if the boat warrants one, with a broker.

Re: Blotches on deck - can you identify

Are you by any chance downwind of a boatyard? Sanding dust from copper bottom paint turns decks funny colors after exposure to moisture from rain or dew.

Wow, you guys are fast (or maybe I'm just slow). I feel like I'm in a texting conversation with my kids.

Re: prop wash

Many boats suffer from prop walk and it can be very tricky to overcome. It occurs when water flowing past the hull has more effect on steering than the rudder.

Every hull reacts differently to...

Re: Fairing Compounds, what do "you" use?

Microspheres and cab-o-sil in about a 2:1 ratio with your favorite epoxy. The cab-o-sil (fumed silica) is the thickener and makes the epoxy very hard (nearly as hard as neat epoxy) if used alone. ...
