Re: Rawson 30- A Blue Water Cruiser?

Thanks for the answer. I have put as much into the bow sprit as the boat cost me. With what I have spent, I might have bought a Perry design, no pocket pissing intended.
New 5/16 chain and SS...

Not sure but the yawl idea was to help steer the boat but I have a monitor for it. Increase the jib... OK.

Re: Rawson 30- A Blue Water Cruiser?

To add stability to my Rawson 30+2 I was thinking I would sandwich two half's of a lead bulb to the bottom of the keel.
This would both lower the weight and increase density. But.... Will it...

Re: Just set sail

Sorry if I seem rash. I was looking for conversation really. I hate to be a bore. Rather defeats the purpose of my efforts.

Re: Just set sail

Heather.
Leaning over on a sail boat is good. It means you don't have to buy the gas and you are moving. A sailboat will actually go anywhere in the world while a motor boat is simply a...

Re: Available ready and need the help

Mr. Smith,
Life is divided up into two categories. One the reality and two: the dream. While you appear to be from the later I am not here to judge you.

Re: Thoughts on Nicro vs. Sunforce solar vents?

No fan made is better than the ones being marketed from China at the moment. I shopped around and saw how far behind the manufactures in the marine market are in vents, solar and otherwise.

BTW, the old fan worked NOT at all and when I heard for the first time -the one that did I was depressed.

Re: Thoughts on Nicro vs. Sunforce solar vents?

Not a Rosie picture you paint but now they don't sound so slick as before. There's a gun oil I was told that is the best.
So why do sturgeons like it so much if it's a synthetic?

Re: Nicro Solar Vents dying on me

Defender sent me two "Day & Night" vents but they appear of different makes. One is Nicro and appears to have an older box. The newer one is Marinco but both appear to be from the same manufacture. ...

Re: Rawson 30- A Blue Water Cruiser?

It is not a necessity to be accepted as a popular boat. The Rawson 30+2 are varied in the use of ply in their hulls for stiffness but they had little of it in the early works like I have.
