Re: wind vanes and LOA

I had a navic. I didn't use it much but I felt that it was basically crap. Lots of little plastic parts. You had to stand up on the stern to adjust it (dangerous to my mind). Didn't work well. ...

Re: ball and chain

Look up catenary research. Current money is on it doesn't actually do anything when you actually need it.

Re: First "big" boat--MANY questions

Courageous sailing in Boston is great and not how you describe a club at all. A very nice crowd and good boats. And way less than the price of your mooring.

Re: "Free boat" seaworthiness

Most respectfully (I mean that!) if $350 is going to slow you down, I think you should definitely not buy the boat. It's just the beginning of a long road. I bought a pretty good boat this summer...

re: "Free boat" seaworthiness

Seriously don't take it. There's no reason at this point to take a serious fixer upper at this point unless it offers you something that the cheap but not free boat doesn't. If that thing ever...

Re: Anchor Snubbers Redux

Sorry, why would you need it to go over the roller? Can't you pull the chain in on the windlass and when the hook gets close detach it? There shouldn't be tension on it at that point, yeah?

Re: Putting in new floors and a cabin sole. Also planning a new cabin layout. Advic

There is a plywood sole there, glassed into the bilge. I haven't measured the thickness of it. I don't think it's original. It's pretty spongy. I'm sure if I just went with a 3/4" plywood sole it...

Putting in new floors and a cabin sole. Also planning a new cabin layout. Advice?

As previously mentioned, the sole on my Triton is spongy and damp. Also pretty uncomfortable. There are some cracks progressing along it, so I know that it's getting worked around. My first big...

Re: Name that Dinghy!

Can you name mine while you are at it?

For the record. I hate it. Sort of submarines on every row. Not very stable. Got me through tr summer though.

Re: Anchor Snubbers Redux

This looks pretty good as far as hooks go, no? Price is reasonable too....

Re: Marine-Tex - What's the point?

Can you mix up small amounts or do you have to make up the whole package?

Re: Possible purchase

Having grown up on one of
Mcgregors finest, I firmly believe the best tool to repair one is a chainsaw. Free is way too expensive particularly when so many amazing boats are getting cut up.

Marine-Tex - What's the point?

I'm confused as to the advantages of Marine Tex vs Marine epoxy.

It looks like $400 a gallon vs $100+ for a gallon of West System.

I get that you can drill and tap it but at that price...

Re: Might have to replace my Pearson Triton Mast

Re: Might have to replace my Pearson Triton Mast

Thanks Jeff. I'll have to think about it. The dean of Triton cruisers James Baldwin converted his and appears to like it that way. Additionally I think all the west coast boats were built that...

Re: Might have to replace my Pearson Triton Mast

Thanks...I've seen them before but forgot about them.

Their prices seem a bit ridiculous (although I've noticed that all marine salvage prices are ridiculous). Do they haggle much?

Oh...I just...

Re: Might have to replace my Pearson Triton Mast

I should have said, I'm in Massachusetts. I think it would be expensive to ship anything very far.

I think I could cut down a longer mast.

Re: Might have to replace my Pearson Triton Mast

PS I'm wondering if a Tartan 27 mast might be a good candidate?
