Re: I got a sailboat for my birthday.

Congrats on the boat (and your Bride). If this wasn't one of the books she got you, I'd highly recommend you pick up a copy. It's available in a couple of editions, any of which will get you on the...

Re: Rub rail oxidation.

This works very well to clean up the rub rail (not sure it will get rid of the chalk like surface though). Move quickly and don't spend too long on any one spot or the acetone will begin to gum up...

Re: micro Jump Starters - anyone tried them on your boat?

Come on! Have a little imagination - it's a boat, things go wrong all the time, even when you've prepared properly. Ever carry a rigging knife on you when you sail? Besides, it's the size of a thin...

micro Jump Starters - anyone tried them on your boat?

Quick forum search came up empty. Curious if anyone's tried one of these on their boat fitted with a smaller diesel, say 10-15hp? Specs claim it can jump a 3L or smaller diesel engine.

Re: NuTeaks C-Flor installed on a Catalina 30

Quite possibly nothing at all, but over time you may see flexing at the seams. Wood floors are normally laid with staggered seams/joints for both aesthetic and structural reasons. Putting...

Re: NuTeaks C-Flor installed on a Catalina 30

Having a hard time understanding your reasoning on this, can you elaborate a bit more? The product looks decent but the seams may be an issue for you moving forward. It looks like you just needed...

Re: New Hatch Lenses in Texas

Re: New Hatch Lenses in Texas

Just an option, I realize it isn't exactly what you're looking for but they have a very good reputation if you can swing it. Good luck.

Re: Variable speed polisher recommendation

Have the Makita and I just use a smaller backing plate on it. Haven't had any issues getting into tight corners, sometimes I'll remove the loop handle. It's really not that heavy.

re: USCG 6 Pack License

Correct, the CG captures sea service on form CG-7195. For better or worse, they aren't looking for the actual log books. BTW, if it's your first time qualifying for the license, you can go back to...

Re: Going to need to re powersomeday..

Can't answer that with much certainty, but if you decide to go the generator/electric propulsion route, I'm pretty sure there won't be much sailing involved.

Re: BVI in the spring - Looking for Wisdom

Wow, don't hear that often. We had a great time in the BVI, but it's definitely on the commercial side of things. Will have to consider the Abacos considering the source.
