Re: I may try for a solo trip in Sept.

Yes GO!

I did my first solo trip last Oct. San Fran to Southern California. Had a BLAST! Learned a lot, messed up some too.

Oh, it was also my first coastal multi-day trip and first time...

Re: Sailboat Junkyard - Apple Valley

Sorry, I should be more clear. That's not my ad. Just stumbled across it on CL.

My guess though is most of the metal items have already been yanked off the boats for recycling.

Re: Skipping CA tax ?

Back to the OP's question,

What's to stop you from buying the boat in CA, taking the bill of sale back to HI and just transferring title there? Get your new HI numbers, sticker and slap them on...

Re: Skipping CA tax ?

EXACTLY! For instance, I only pay 8% sales tax where I live.

Use tax is usually stated and paid on your tax return BTW and is only for out of state purchases. Sales tax on a boat or vehicle,...

Re: Skipping CA tax ?

You are thinking of property tax here. In CA, use tax is what you are supposed to pay for items purchased out of state.

Re: Remove Varnish from Teak Caulk

Ok. It's been a few months but I thought I'd give my results.

I just ended up masking off the teak, sanded lightly with 220 and wiping it down with acetone. Worked perfectly. The acetone...

Re: Going to Catalina in Gale???

Sorry if I blow your cover but I'm pretty sure I saw you out a week or so ago. It was blowing a steady 18 kts and you were doing just fine that I could see, sailing up the harbor.

Re: Remove Varnish from Teak Caulk

What would make you think the varnish would crack? Teak hardly moves, healthy varnish is flexible, so is caulk. The caulk would have to rely on the varnish to provide a secure joint. Teak caulk is...

Re: Remove Varnish from Teak Caulk

Curious, why would you suggest that? All common sense (and practice) would suggest otherwise.

Re: Remove Varnish from Teak Caulk

I do understand that and I will take these suggestions under consideration. However, the existing varnish has been over the teak/caulk joint for many years and there was no failure that I could see....

Re: Remove Varnish from Teak Caulk

Sorry, I have to totally disagree with you here. This is even bordering on bad advise. While I know some people prefer the weathered teak look on all their teak (or just prefer not to maintain it)....

Re: Remove Varnish from Teak Caulk

Thanks for the replies.

I'm thinking either R&R the caulk or scrape what I can off the existing and varnish over.

Sanding down to the caulk is not gonna happen. A belt sander would work, but...

Remove Varnish from Teak Caulk

So, I'm jumping into the brightwork on my boat and I'm in the process of removing the old varnish with a heat gun. All is going well/quickly but the varnish that is on the caulking is a bit stubborn...

Re: What did you learn to sail on?

I first sailed as "crew" on a Sabot, I was 6 or so. Then started sailing every day at 10-12 on a good friends Lazer. I think I learned the most doing that. Much later sailed Lido 14's. The first...

Re: Zodiac Zoom 260 Aero Anyone?

I have the Zoom Aero 260 as well.

Although I've had it for a couple of years, I've only really been getting use out of it the last six months. I have maybe 10 hours on it and the motor.

Re: why so long?

I figure for every hour I spend sailing, I spend 4 or more entertaining. The extra space would be nice then. The grass is always greener as they say...or maybe I need to sail more. :D

Re: why so long?

The wheel is fixed, can't be folded up when done sailing. The wheel separates the cockpit into 1/3 - 2/3 sections.

Certainly while sailing the tiller requires one to move around the cockpit but,...

Re: why so long?

When I was looking at Islander 36's, I ended up choosing one with a steering pedestal over a tiller. Looking back, I wish I would have considered the tiller steered boat a bit more. Much more room...
