Re: Towing a Capri 16 with a Subaru outback?

My Subaru Forrester (auto trans) tows my ODay Mariner (~1350 empty weight) just fine. On flat ground at slow speed it is easy to forget the trailer is behind you! I don't have trailer brakes, so take...

Re: Is this an aries windvane

It is definitely not an Aries (which is a horizontal-axis vane servo-pendulum style system). This is a vertical axis vane (which kinda looks like a Sayes-rig), but I'm not sure about the in-the-water...

Re: New bottom coating perhaps?

I strongly suspect that something evolved from the super-hydrophobic materials will eventually be the future of bottom paints. The current stuff might work on day-launched vessels (though maybe not...

Re: Route Planning: Marina Del Rey to Channel Islands

The one time I took that trip, we motored all night, got to SC island at sunrise. Reason: winds (and waves!) much, much lighter at night!
