If you get the Mrs. to that point and your still alive ( for lack of being beat to death ) I'd say she's a definite keeper. :laugher

OK Jordan,
If your sitting in the cockpit, you know where the keel winch is, right ? The drain that the keel cable goes through, (all the way to the bottom of the boat) is under that. On the...

I've heard of people using expanding foam in the mast. I don't think it's very heavy and it is good flotation. It would eliminate your worry of the wire smacking about. The hard thing would be...

You don't have to crawl in. Just remove the wood bulkhead under the companionway. The number can be seen from there.

yes that's the cockpit drain. I don't know about a plug for that drain hole. My boat doesn't have a plug. I get a little bit of water in the cockpit floor occasionally but nothing to worry about. One...

I've been guilty of some of that. Mostly from ignorance of how forums worked, and that you can't tell sometimes when someone is being sarcastic or making a joke.

I reused the rubber washers that came on the boat on each side but mine were kinda old so I made a couple more out of an innertube and used them with the old ones. Mine seals up real good now. Not a...

Your idea should be fine as long as you bolt the lead to the bottom of your new plate. You need between 250 and 300 lbs

Andrew,
I haven't found any good pictures of unaltered boats. I can tell you though. All you need is a cam cleat on each side, either on the top corner of the cabin, beside the hatch cover, for the...

I put a "Boomkicker" on mine. It works very well to hold the mast up without having to run a line from the top of the mast. You should be able to google it and see what I'm talking about. I don't...

Andrew,
I would guess the double block under the boom is maybe where somebody had rigged a traveler for the main. maybe it was connected to the winch bunk. What you showed it connected to makes no...

Yes. The bunks will conform after the weight of the boat is on them for a few weeks. Especially after they get wet and dry with the boat on them.

I used one for awhile, but was worried about it snapping off, so I now use a regular shackle. I may go back to the easy way for light air days though. It's so much easier to get everything rigged...

I didn't really need mine, and never tripped over it, but I can see how it could've been in the way.
Went sailing today. Man what a good sail. It gets better every time.

I also just put some small cam cleats on the mast for my halyards. It makes it easy to drop the sails in a hurry if needed, and my jib sheets don't get snagged anymore.

Mine has cam cleats for the jib sheets. It is definately easier than what you're dealing with. I always single hand, and with a few simple pieces of hardware, it's easy.

Groovy.
Oh, and incase you didn't know, if you would've eased the tension on the starboard jib sheet, and pulled in on the port sheet, it will sail better.
