Thumbs up Re: What should I have done differently? Brickyard Cove

Thanks to everyone for the great advice. I knew that I could learn much by asking here, but I was still surprised by how insightful the comments were. For example, that I probably reacted too...

What should I have done differently? Brickyard Cove

I'm still in the novice phase of sailing and would appreciate advice, especially from anyone with experience at Brickyard Cove, Point Richmond, CA (SF Bay).

Re: Please recommend sailboat museums NE US

Re: Why don't people clean their boats when selling?

There are instances when bad maintenance is a selling point -- a diamond in the rough. The barn find is basically a myth but it persists. I fell for it myself. The boat I purchased was very dirty. I...

I was expecting to hear about two or three nice stops to make on the drive. Now, I'm afraid that my week long November vacation might have turned into a scouting trip for summer. I clearly need to...

Re: Moving to San Francisco Bay

I am going to largely reiterate what was said by svHyLyte.

Are you talking about Marina Bay or are you considering any of the Richmond facilities? Because of their proximity to Richmond, they all...

Re: Who sailed this weekend???

Saturday was a milestone. It was the first sail by my wife and me without support crew. I am still in my first ten sails bare boating. My grown son had always been along before.

Flushing a saltwater outboard. How long and how often?

I can't use the hose attachment option to flush my Honda 5HP. Instead, I run the outboard in a bucket with fresh water being added as the fresh water in the large plastic container is circulated...

Re: Novice question about cleaning sail that is roller furled

Thanks. It is a Merit 25 and is on a yard trailer. That is one reason that I haven't had it fully unfurled. Glad to hear that it will be fairly obvious when unfurled. I have only sailed with boats...

Novice question about cleaning sail that is roller furled

I need to clean a jib sail on roller furler and know almost nothing about roller furlers. I need to take the sail off the boat, carry it to grass, and clean the sail for mildew.

Re: Pulled out a cleat at my slip, now getting pursued for damages - advice please

Time to delete "Local boat buying assistance"?

I wonder how few people who "volunteered" and are listed on that sticky would actually do what they claimed. I had a recent experience that suggests that the offers can be very hollow even when made...

If I were you, I would test whatever torque wrench you decide to use. The only bolts that I have stripped in my car hobby work have been done with a torque wrench. I'm not sure how you strip a 1 inch...
