Having shopped for kids' cars recently I've come to the conclusion that while many people are knowingly lying about the condition of their cars, in a lot of cases I think they just don't realize how...

Wow, that's some sentiment if I'm reading you correctly.

Sorry about the loss of your boat, but by your own admission you seem to have some issues knowing how to use money yourself.

You...

I don't know why it's so difficult to hoist either. I used to have a Catalina 27 with no main halyard winch and got that one up fine no problem. Of course that was an external halyard, so I could...

I should have mentioned that the boom gooseneck is fixed, so no downhaul. I do have a cunningham rigged, but I would need it to make up for the head of the sail being maybe a foot below where it's...

Main halyard tension, no winch

I have a newly acquired Cal 24 which was previously equipped with a mainsail halyard winch that was removed at some point. I find that it's very difficult to get the sail all the way up unless...

Yeah, I knew talking about it wasn't going to make me feel any better about it! It does make it easier to justify going through the hassle of replacing it though, so thanks everyone.

Does anyone...

Outboard, how long a shaft does it need to be?

I have a Cal 24 (Hunt) that I just traded another boat for, and it came equipped with a 6hp Mercury outboard that runs very well. It is, however, a short shaft model which I at first thought...

Thanks but no, I have the 1983/4 Raymond Hunt designed version, which is a completely different boat, and apparently rare! I guess I'm going to have to make do with the rare picture from For Sale ads...

Any other Cal 24 Hunt owners out there?

Hello All. Yesterday I picked up a Cal 24 which is in usable condition for daysailing, but the interior came in something resembling kit form. The PO had started to refurbish the boat and removed...

Volvo parts source in Annapolis/Deale?

Hey now, I noticed when I pulled the exhaust manifold off my MD7a that there's an opening in the head that matches what appears to be a plugged opening on the manifold. Is that what that might be...

For some reason I thought that line size on these things was critical to avoid binding, etc. Turns out I did have the size in the parts list, just didn't immediately recognize the symbol for...

Thank you all

I also asked this question on the Cape Dory site, and am amazed at how quickly someone answered in both places. This internets thing seems useful, might actually catch on someday!

Exclamation What's the impeller housing gasket material?

Hi all! I'm at my new (to me) boat right now trying to get the cooling system back together. I thought I had a new impeller housing gasket, but it seems to be a paper material. Is that the right...

Mechanic near Rock Hall, MD?

I hope it's OK to ask here, but I'm looking for someone to work on my MD-7A and get it running. I just bought the boat and need to get it running so I can move it across the Bay to somewhere closer...

Serendipity (good boat name!)

Thank you sir! Serendipitous indeed, especially when you consider a couple of the factors that nudged me into bidding. First, the boat's name is Emerald, and my favorite color is green. Second,...

I can answer the original question!

And the answer is yes, it just might be (too good to be true). I bought that boat, sight-unseen. I placed what I thought was a low-ball bid (for a CD28 in good shape) and "accidentally" won the...
