Re: Another boat lost in Atlantic

I have been offshore in the north atlantic in early April. It can easily be a washing machine with 25 foot steep, confused and short duration waves. We were in a boat (55 foot aluminum pilot house)...

Re: How much paint will I need to do the bottom of a 30 footer

The obvious confusion by the some of the posters is that they are not familiar with VC 17. It is not the same a traditional bottom paint. It has the viscosity of water and goes a long way. Quite the...

Re: How much paint will I need to do the bottom of a 30 footer

VC-17 is a different animal. 2 qts is all that you need if you apply it right. 1st you need a solvent. Interlux has one called VC thinner which is relatively expensive. The rest of us use 95%...

Re: Pic of 1 year old aluminum anode

I use a magnesium anode. Maybe it isn't working that great. I'm changing it this spring anyway. My stainless prop shaft and bronze Martec prop aren't showing signs of corrosion. At the last marina...

Re: Pic of 1 year old aluminum anode

It seems to me that is a lot of corrosion. Your boat is in Sandusky Bay. So is mine but my anode doesn't look that bad after 4 years in another marina in Sandusky. I'm wondering if there might be a...

Re: Port Huron, or even Chicago to Mackinaw race. Newbie looking for advice.

Being on Lake St. Clair helps a lot. Cuts a little of the cost down and 1 day out of the transport. I guess about 8-10 hours to motor up to Port Huron and about 6 hours to motor back.

Go to the...

Re: Port Huron, or even Chicago to Mackinaw race. Newbie looking for advice.

AX- It is all about logistics and equipment. I did the PH Mac in 2010 with my 29 footer. This year they changed the safety rules of the PH Mac and it became a lot cheaper because you do not need a...

Re: First Timer with bottom paint (VC17)

I have been putting VC 17 on for the last 25 years. I also keep my boat on Western Lake Erie. I have brushed it, rolled it and had it professionally sprayed. Here is the routine that works well-

Re: The Loss of The Alpha 42 "Be Good Too"

Back to the Alpha thread. I, for one, think they did the right thing to get off the boat. They had bad weather coming and a crippled boat. The waves in that part of the Atlantic are brutal. I...

Re: mast bend problem

I think you gave us a clue when you said forestay had 2 holes at deck. The condition you describe with the mast bending forward at the shrouds and is still loose is caused by a forestay that is too...

Re: What is the best way to Tarp a sailboat for winter
