Re: Is Ericson 35 1972 built for offshore cruising?

Denise,

Re: Alcohol Stove and Heater

I believe you've found an Origo HeatPal. Yes, it uses the same canister as your stove.

The stove and heater use the same fuel.
They are both unpressurized (safer)

Re: Catalina 30 - Help!

I displace around 8500lbs. with the boat stripped for racing.
The engine pushes me at 6.5 kts, with the throttle wide open. Hull speed for my boat is around 7.1kts.

Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

Well...intensity of 65kts is probably pretty rare, but the pattern itself may not be, with intensity in the 30's and 40's being more common.

Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

I disagree. This pattern seems somewhat common for seasonal transitions and during the really hot days of summer.

The primary variable is the intensity and duration. Some will be worse than...

Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

I've sailed upwind and downwind in 35kts.
I believe that 35kts is the upper limit for my working jib and single-reef mainsail.

You don't have to run downwind under sails. The mast and rigging alone, can provide enough windage (exposed surface area) to propel the boat.
