Re: My 128th good film - and the future of sailing journalism

Interesting read but you have all got it wrong. There is only one way to make money with this stuff on the internet and as far as I can tell only ONE way. You must have young girls in bikinis. You...

Re: Thru hull and seacock installation

What you have is what I call a ball valve on a thru hull. Not a proper seacock. It works but like you say is not the best solution. I have done a video series on replacing the valave on a lagoon 38...

Re: New Steering Maintainance Video

I think the problem with the dry lube is when it get wet. It would be hard to keep the steering always dry. The T-9 is to protect the chain from corrosion while the oil helps lube the chain rollers....

Re: New Steering Maintainance Video

Yes the below deck one is in process, I will then do one on interfacing autopilots followed by one on rudders. Not sure about the hydraulic one but it is a good idea and I will see what I can do.

Re: TV antennas

I have tried and installed many while working on boats. The Glomex is by far the best I have come across. Do not cheep out on the coax and connections that can make a big difference as well. The best...

Re: Boat insurance

Re: Sealing deck through holes with balsa core

Most epoxies will not cure in a wet deck. I have had had to fix more than one deck that was "repaired" by injecting epoxy. It turns into a gooey mess that will not cure and has to be scraped out. If...

Re: Hull deck reassurance

Yes I am going with the Plexus because it is structural adhesive and will also seal. A secondary seal will be made with the toe rail. Butyl will add nothing to the strength of the joint. Butyl in my...

Re: Lifejacket Type Code Labels Go Away (BoatUS article)

Re: Hull deck reassurance

Maybe some of the later Irwins have 5200 but I know mine does not. I know for sure it is dried out butyl tape as I have removed some. I have never seen a Irwin with 5200 in the joint but that does...

Re: Lifejacket Type Code Labels Go Away (BoatUS article)

re: Hull deck reassurance

I am planing on doing this to my Irwin 40 but will be taking a different approach. I plan to remove the toe rail and hull deck fasteners. Then lift the deck enough in sections to clean out the dried...

Re: Advice From Young Punks

Re: Rallies Gone Wrong

Yes a drogue could help keep you headed down wind but to think you could steer like this I think is a mistake. Waiting for things to die down is a option I guess but they will not get that calm. The...
