Re: Rudder Replacement Problems

I had this problem until I replaced my rudder bearings. There was enough play in the old bearings that the prop wash would push the rudder out of alignment and the boat would go hard right. New...

Re: Dinghy and Engine Choices

Here is an interesting option: a folding/nesting RIB. Anyone have personal experience with these? First time I've heard of them.

Re: Spinnaker shackles

From Tylaska's website: "Ideal for halyards and sheets." I've also seen them used for babystays and solent stays.

Re: When Do You Reef?

Casey: As you know, same boat as you (S&S 34), MKI and with a double spreader tall rig.

I downsize my headsail first. I've got a 135% genoa that I use in up to about 15 - 17 knots. Above that...

Would love to, but while I live on Port Washington, I will be out in Montauk then. Enjoy.

Re: Headed for LI Sound and Beyond

Chef:

You probably already know this, but the town of Port Washington maintains about 20 moorings for transients. I believe they are even free for the first 24 hours on weekends, and 48 hours...

Re: Tiller or Wheel for Solo?

If you are looking to do solo stuff, take a look at FoolishMuse's book. He has some very well thought out information in there.

Re: Tiller or Wheel for Solo?

Don't waste your money converting a tiller to wheel if you find a boat you like with a tiller. You can spend that on much more useful stuff. FWIW, my S&S 34 had an Edson conversion done to it, but...

Re: Rigging knife

I have a Camillus that is similar to this one, but with a serrated section of the blade. I've had it for at least 15 years now and it is bomber. Beautiful knife.

Re: Malo 45' loses rudder, pulls an All is Lost

How many rudder bearings does the Malo have? Or for that matter, what is typical for a skeg hung rudder?

On my boat, there is a shoe at the bottom of the skeg that is bolted through the skeg,...

Re: Boats like S&S 34

Ilenart and JeffH have identified some of my favorites that are similar to the S&S 34. For what it is worth, the displacement numbers that are kicked around online for the S&S 34 have always been a...

Re: So, What about this idea?

I thought that was how most modern boats were already designed, just that they forgot to include the feature about sliding them back in!

Re: anodes for Yanmar saildrive AND Gori prop?

Yes, two anodes. One pencil style up inside the boat on the port side -- for me I've only changed this once in five years, but I hang on a mooring so don't have the same issues as someone in a...

Re: GoPro - What do you think?

Once you familiarize yourself with the controls you don't spend a ton of time futzing about with it. If anything, I've found that I shoot too much video because it is so easy to carry the thing...

Re: GoPro - What do you think?

When I researched this, a lot of the negative reviews about the Hero 3 edition of the GoPro seem to have been resolved by a software update they released. I haven't had any problems.

Ditto for me. If spending any time at marinas, I would install a galvanic isolator.
