Re: What is so bad about a Porta Potti?

From a more technical standpoint every porta potty I have ever seen is amusingly enough the same size as the ones they sell for training children, as in freaking uselessly tiny.

I'm actually super...

Re: The future of the sailing world. Why are there so few young people cruising??

Sailing is too expensive for a person of your average capabilities and boat storage space.

I don't need both hands to count the number of places within several hours drive that you could actually...

Re: 19 foot Oday for crusing

What you will pay for any boat can increase or decrease by 100% depending on location and condition.

I have a 76 Oday 22 fixed shoal keel. If (when) I completely replace and reinforce the mast...

Re: Stop freakin' waving at me!

There is merit in a philosophical debate about obligatory friendly gestures.

Or put more simply if you're required to be friendly then is doesn't mean **** so why bother.

Its very culture and...

Re: Hurricane Anchoring - Why not this way?

If I lived on my boat and wasn't rich enough to keep it insured or afford another then it would be worth dying for. For a rich persons plaything obviously its not worth it.

Re: Hand starting an atomic 4

The cooling system dumps water into the exhaust to keep it cool and normally exhaust pressure insures it keeps moving outward even against seawater pressure if its a below water line outlet. The...

Re: Hurricane Anchoring - Why not this way?

Re: Questions about closed cell foam panels and interior redesign..

The foam in the boat actually weighs equal to the same volume in water after sitting in water long enough and it takes FOREVER to dry. I don't think the boat builders intended it do get wet in the...

Re: Do you really know and trust your boat?

That is a good analogy, but its really more like going cruising in a 1972 Ford Mustang with the typical rusted unibody frame rails and over stressed flexy shock towers, since the car like the boat...

I would love if I could afford a boat that is ready to sail, but in all honestly I am too poor to be allowed to own a sailboat and this is just a way I snuck in the back door. After buying both...

Questions about closed cell foam panels and interior redesign..

I am presently working on a 76 Oday 22 and to put it bluntly I hate the interior.

Question Do you really know and trust your boat?

I don't know that I will when I finish my 1976 O'day 22 project and it really bothers me.
