Re: Boat Pets

Re: My First Fiberglass Repair

I was actually planning on taking an angle grinder to the small amount of fiberglass which current covers the wooden strut pedestal.

My First Fiberglass Repair

Hi All,

I'm about to attempt my first marine fiberglass repair, and just wanted to check that my plan is solid (so to speak..).

Insurance needed in marinas abroad?

In Sydney I'm told that often Marinas won't take boats without some sort of third party insurance.

Have any of my fellow Sydney-siders run into this problem? Also considering that we want to take...

Dinghy Davit, Arch or not worth it?

Hi All,

I'd like to hear some opinions of the value of a Davit system on the rear of your boats used for cruising, living and blue water passages.

I've been looking at a few boats in the...

Re: Sydney to Brazil for the World Cup

Hi Copa,

Yeah I figured that might be an issue. I was wondering how many people would be really sailing their boats to the World Cup. The north americans aren't interested and its seems a bit...

Re: Sydney to Brazil for the World Cup

Hi St Anna,

Looks like you have a Peterson Formosa 46 is that correct?
