Re: $854,400 in Fuel Spill Liability?

While at the boat show last week I got a quote from Boat US. It included the coverage for "fuel and other spill liability...854,400"

Re: Do you play music whilst sailing?

Usually not while sailing. I hate it when my guitar gets caught in the mainsheet during a jybe. :eek:

At anchor it is nice. :)

Re: Are sailing schools worth it?

I would have to say yes.

Sure you could buy a boat for 2 grand and get a buddy to show you how to sail it. I did.

Then, I got the bug and wanted to do more, learn more, get a bigger boat, and...

I own an Oday 22 and enjoy it very much. Has a small cabin with a hand sink and a coleman stove. A door on the bulkhead to the v-berth and porta-potty.
V-berth is cramped for two adults, but so was...

Re: welding and welder options

Check out the Ready Welder. I use one on my service truck. It's a 24v DC Mig spool gun. Power is from two deep cycle batteries, or three for more heat. Uses shielded wire or plain wire with a co2...

Re: painting

Last year I painted the bottom of my Oday 22 on the trailer.

I sanded most of the bottom with the boat just sitting on the trailer.

I painted one side at a time by jacking the trailer one...

Re: How does a boat sink in 15 minutes?

Back in the 90s I had a 19 foot jet boat with through transom exhaust. A short section of rubber hose connected the exhaust manifolds to the transom fittings and had rotted from the inside.

Re: Rookie on a San Juan 21

If you have an opportunity to go out for a day or even an afternoon with someone experienced in sailing would be the best way to gain much needed knowledge.

That is what I did when I got my Oday...

Re: Opinions on ODay's?

I really like my Oday 22.
Mine is a '75 and has a 600lb shoal keel.
It trailers nice and is easy to set up and launch.
Sails good, seems tender at first then hardens up. Easy to singlehand.

Re: Swim Platform for MacGregor 26'

Check out ebay.
I've been considering changing my ladder too.
I found a ladder / platform combo that is sized for one person to sit or stand on, made with teak or star board.

Re: Coffee Maker

I have to agree with CaptainWabamun , I have been using a Jet boil for several years now. Using the grinder at the grocery store I use the coarse setting and get less sediment.

Re: "Careening" sailboat while floating ?

Careening was done on square rigged wooden boats by removing all the river rock ballast and stores from within, then the crew of 30 to 50 men would haul the boat on the beach and tip it on one side...

Re: difficulty raising mainsail the last few feet

Try clipping a free line by itself to the halyard and raising that with a little tension on the line to determine if the halyard is running properly.

Next step would be to add a spare slide / slug...

Just a couple oldies I've found. Not so much "about" sailing as a story with a boat in it.

Also, if you increase rig size it will also increase rig weight. Wouldn't that make the boat more tender, as in wanting to heel more?

DON'T paint it. Your sail is constantly in motion, stretching, flexing, folding, and ANY paint will crack. Got any old tee shirts? How long does it take before they look like crap? Use the vinyl or...
