Re: Vagabond and Westwind Sailboats

One of our recent projects has been the revamp/repair of the forward head. We knew the aft head had issues with rotting flooring when we bought Gypsy. We erroneously blamed a leaking chainplate. ...

Re: Vagabond and Westwind Sailboats

It rains enough here in the southeast US to make it difficult to open a boat's deck, dry, and repair it before it gets rained on and re-soaked. We were in fear of attacking this job until we found...

Re: Vagabond and Westwind Sailboats

Helimech, glad to hear the v-berth floors are nearly done. That is one project we won't have to tackle on Gypsy in the near future. All of her floors, with exception of the aft head appear to be...

Re: Vagabond and Westwind Sailboats

We have exposed all but 2 - distracted by other projects. We won't be cutting our chainplates out completely. We just need access to the bolts and to inspect them. We are planning to move the...

Re: Vagabond and Westwind Sailboats

I feel your pain. Our decks would have been in pretty good shape if not for the leaks related to the bowsprit. Poseidon has smiled on us though as we have removed the top skin of the foredeck...

Re: Vagabond and Westwind Sailboats

Helimech,

Love the Battery box job. We have been planning a similar modification to gain better access to the front of the engine. Great spot for the starter battery too. We were considering...

Re: What is the best Sailing book you have read?

Motion of the Ocean by Janna Cawrse Esarey is a hilarious true tale of newlyweds on a honeymoon trip around the globe.

Berserk by David Mercy is the true story of Jar Andhoy, and David Mercer...

Re: Tropical Storm Gonzalo... Ooops!

Good to hear.
Just heard from one of your neighbors that he and his wife also road out the storm in the lagoon thinking it was going to be much less severe. His name is Roger, tan ketch between...

Re: So where the heck do you shower???

Not practical? It is entirely practical. What it isn't is luxury. The smaller the boat, the fewer the luxuries and maintenance headaches.

If you can only shower on deck when in public, use a...

Re: Tropical Storm Gonzalo... Ooops!

We put her on the market about 12/2011 and sold her about 2/2013 with our mooring in French Saint Martin. She was a good boat with big sales, great speed and a lot of heel

Re: Tropical Storm Gonzalo... Ooops!

Wow! Awesome job keeping afloat and safe. I don't think you could have picked a much better mooring in the lagoon for that storm. Well done! All of our friends there have said the same about how...

Re: Won't Start after 4 hours of cruising.

Had a similar issue a while back. Fought it for months before we finally thoroughly checked the fuel tank vent hose. Ours was routed so as to allow overfilled or sloshed diesel to accumulate in a...

Re: Vagabond and Westwind Sailboats

So it turns out that Gypsy is sporting a Ford Lehman 220 Dagenham engine - not the 2712E we thought she had. You can tell by the shaft driven extension for the water pump on the injector pump. So...

Re: Holding Tank Woes

All I can say is Air head - really. Skip the tank and start composting - no float valve/switch/pump out required.

Re: Vagabond and Westwind Sailboats

There might be an easier way, but the way I do it is to upload the pix to an album in my User CP. Then I open the pix there and copy the BB code found below the pix and paste it into my post.

We lived on a 42 foot boat on a mooring in the Caribbean for 2 years. It cost us less per month to live there including boat repairs than it cost to live on land in the US in a tiny one bedroom...

Re: Curse my impulsivity, I'm buying a boat! Taipan 28

Are you going to have it surveyed? I'm a leaky-teaky owner and those decks look like they have a lot of leak potential(screws and missing plugs). I'm not trying to be a dream buster. She is pretty...
