Re: How much hydrogen peroxide to sanitize?

I wonder if a UV light wouldn't be a better option than chemical treatments. At least for a metal tank (the UV would probably destroy plastic ones). It's highly effective at sterilizing water, and...

Re: Question Regarding Price Ranges and the Value of a Cash Offer

That's probably most of it. The other issue is even a can in hand, as is where is offer will still need to acquire insurance, which will normally require a recent survey anyway. So even on a 'I have...

Re: cutting down a rig

I am not quite as down on the idea as Jeff, but agree with him basically. The mast is going to be massively overspec and weight, so you will be looking at reducing righting moment substantially. How...

Re: Question Regarding Price Ranges and the Value of a Cash Offer

For most boats I don't really see a value in a cash offer versus a financed one. Most people who buy boats are buying them as a luxury good, and therefore likely have plenty of income or wealth to...

Re: Question: Do you close your seacocks when leaving the boat?

Unless the boat is going to sit unused for a few weeks we leave them open. I wouldn't argue about if we should, but just never have.

Re: Fellow Four Eyes dealing with rain

I wear contacts, but always keep glasses with me. The only things I have found that helps is a hat and a Rain-X on the lenses. It doesn't make them great, but bearable.

Re: Non-Sailor With Question

TC,

It happens more often than people think, but there is no good reason for it. Ideally you never get off the larger vessel until it is sunk, not just sinking but actually under water and headed...

Re: Interlake or Flying Scot

Yes they are substantial changes. My post above was written at the same time yours went up so I didn't see it.

There are a lot of issues with a pre 86' boat, I touched on some of them, but they...

Re: Long term cruisers, would you take this as a gift?

We had one on our boat and took it out after a year. We justs didn't use it enough to justify the space. On the other hand the people we sold the boat too added them back... So I think it is just...

Re: Interlake or Flying Scot

The Buccaneer 18 much like the Scott isn't really capable of self rescue. Most of this type of boat (sit in vs sit on) boats from this era are the same. If the boat broaches the coming gets...

Re: Storing a hank on jib, realistic VS correct.

What you have now is exactly what you want... Stiff and crinkly is an indication that the sail is new and in good shape, the softer it is the more it has worked and the less shape it will hold. How...

Re: High speed ferry vs. race fleet

Actually in this case it sounds like the sailboats were in the wrong but it isn't definate.

The biggest question is if the sailboat race had recieved a permit from the USCG. Since they are...

Re: Graphene oxide: the best barrier coat?

Multihull,

Thanks for the catch. I initially read it as the chemical treatment only being impervious against acids/corrosives/ect. But on second reading I think you are correct and the chemical...

Re: Graphene oxide: the best barrier coat?

The article indicates that the graphene paint is water permeable, and graphene is highly conductive. I can't see the draw unless you want wet core and massive galvanic corrosion.

Re: Bigger is better & faster?

Bee,

Assuming things like SA/D and wetted surface are similar larger boats actually have an advantage in light air. Because of the longer waterline they operate in lower drag portions of their...

Re: Interlake or Flying Scot

I really like Lightnings and raced them one design for years. The issue I have with recommending them is that there are a lot of old wooden ones around and if you happen to snag one... Well they...

Re: Interlake or Flying Scot

They pretty much have to. The resolutions already passed require a new boat to be selected though the commodores still have to vote on which one. The vote on which boat is supposed to happen at the...

Re: Interlake or Flying Scot

Andrew,

There are a lot, probably hundreds of possible boats in this size and price range. Trying to hit that price point on a 18-20' boat is going to be somewhat location dependent since it...

Re: Interlake or Flying Scot

New or used, budget?


Frankly I wouldn't recommend either of these. I don't know anything about the interlake except that it is a 100 year old class (and thus ancient design), and the flying...

Re: sail plan curiosity

There is a pretty good argument that modern square headed mains are really gaff rigged not slooped.

The problem with Junk rigs is that they are substantially less efficient than a Bermuda. Not...

There is no way to load up a halyard on a winch then take it off the winch and onto a cleat without loosing tension on it. If it was then there would be no need for the winch in the first place, and...

Re: Collecting Rain water

My preference is for a water tank to collect the rainwater, then run collected water thru a water maker. Those things not only clean out salt, but also bugs, bacteria, and almost all viruses.

Re: cleats

It is impossible to move a halyard to a jam cleat like this without effecting the tension on the line. You need something inline with the direction of pull. The only options are a cam or a clutch,...

Re: has anyone made a homemade catamaran and cross a ocean yet?

The real issue is people who think that building it themselves is a huge cost savings, and drastically under appreciate the amount of hours that go into building a boat. It's really sad, but the...
