Strictly Sail Chicago

Welch,
In the past tickets were cheaper if purchased in advance. I assume it is the same this year. Also, I don''t think two-day tickets were available at the door, but I''m not certain about that.

Strictly Sail Chicago

Welch,
I go, with my first mate, every year. I think it''s a great boat show and especially enjoy the excellent forums. One of the neat things about the Strictly Sail shows is that they are geared...

Lake Erie Instructions

Jeff, as far as the Inland seas are concerned, you''re picking one of the best areas on the lakes (IMHO)! The western end of Lake Erie offers a lot in the way of learning to sail. I keep my 26 ft...

Transducer suspended in vegie oil. square to the bottom

Rather than using vegetable oil you should use mineral oil. Other than that, what you have outlined is pretty much the way it works. It does have to be aimed through an area that is solid fiberglass,...

Outboard motor controls

My 26'' Cape Dory uses an outboard in an engine well, the same arrangement as is found on the Cape Dory 25. Well appreciating the benefits of using an outboard, handling the outboard while docking is...

Knothead,

Cape dory

Jon,
For some reason some who have never sailed a Cape Dory have the view that they are overly slow. While not a performance boat like many newer boats, they are well built, good tracking, and...

Depth Gauge vs. Fishfinder

Larsfis,
