Re: In what order are parts of the boat most important?

Good thoughts, appreciated as always.

Chainplates go in the standing rigging category. The deck goes in category 1. It's part of the hull. That's what I meant by rot. Deck rot. The deck to hull...

In what order are parts of the boat most important?

A bit of awkward wording, but I'm in the market, I make calls and ask questions. What do you guys think are the most important things to look for when buying a used sailboat? My order is something...

Re: Help me figure out what kind of boat I want.

I'm quiet because I'm taking the weekend to reflect upon a balance between what I think I want to do(sail to Mexico and te South Pacific) and what I think I will do.

This boat looks great for...

Re: Ever had a MEDICAL EMERGENCY while at SEA?

Whoa. Miatapaul is injecting drugs at dead concerts. No smoking pot for him, he's straight to the needle. He's probably killed people too.

I see a point to this thread though, learning what to...

Re: Cruising California. Experiences and advice.

What Falmouth cutter is that, Merico? I wish I had enough for the FC for sale down there.

Well....I suppose I haven't pulled the trigger yet, I may have jumped the gun. But really what I meant...

Re: Curse my impulsivity, I'm buying a boat! Taipan 28

See, I listen I listen. I'll stop cherry picking and go with the overall consensus on here that I need to look first. It's embarrassing, but it IS why I asked, and I think most everyone agrees,...

Re: Curse my impulsivity, I'm buying a boat! Taipan 28

So you're saying the teak strengthens the deck, and it's an ultra deck?

Re: Curse my impulsivity, I'm buying a boat! Taipan 28

In 2012 they replaced it with a used yanmar. The only info I have on that is from the previous owner and the surveyor. It has no hours and no temperature gauge.

I told the broker that it was...

Re: Curse my impulsivity, I'm buying a boat! Taipan 28

If anybody read that, is that a good survey? It has since been hauled out, repainted, blisters fixed and the prop shaft fixed.

Re: Worse than a garage... I may need help

Totally agree with the above. I throw it all away. If I replace a shackle, the old shackle gets tossed. My method for keeping things clean is just to throw everything away.

Re: Curse my impulsivity, I'm buying a boat! Taipan 28

A survey huh... can I trust them? It seems like I would be better served doing it myself. I'm getting a copy of a survey done in April. What could have happened dice then that you can't see? I...

Re: Cruising California. Experiences and advice.

It sounds fun. I want to buy a boat in SoCal but I would really miss a lot of beautiful places in Central.

Not heading north no matter what. I am staying below lattitude 38 from now on. There are...

Re: Curse my impulsivity, I'm buying a boat! Taipan 28

Curse my impulsivity, I'm buying a boat! Taipan 28

Re: Cape Horn windvane. Anyone installed one?

I called and talked to the owner of norvane. I think I am going to try and keep the cost of the boat down a tad so I can get one of these. Less than $2500 with the spares kit and I can install it...

Re: Has anyone been up the San Rafael channel recently?

Ok. I'm going to have to make a list of anchorages or I'm going to be shocked when I get there.

The Venice thing sounds nice, so this is a Labor Day weekend cruise for Mark?

Re: Has anyone been up the San Rafael channel recently?

Can you anchor there? I saw a photo of it. I'm not sure how far back it goes, it looked like a river or canal with house and small private docks in front.

Re: Has anyone been up the San Rafael channel recently?

Once you get there look off to your left, there is an....eccentric sounding guy on craigslist trying to sell a restored black pearson triton. I'm curious if it's nice. He's so sure it will cause a...

Re: Cape Horn windvane. Anyone installed one?

Why did you not sell it to me? You know that I would have bought it. I will look up norvane now. The fact that they are in California helps.
