Re: I'm Done

I'm curious. Why do you loathe their boats? Do the shrouds pull out of the decks? Does the fiberglass peel off?


Not necessarily more experienced but definitely towards racing and larger boats....

Re: plywood type for fiberglass .

I had thought that most people knew that the 'X' in ACX was exterior but perhaps not. It was my assumption that the OP was talking about exterior grade.

In terms of polyester resin I can't agree...

Re: I'm Done

What type of sailboat do you have?


This is doubtful.

The more people I talk to the more confirmation I have about what I've already said. Just a few days ago someone was saying that he had...

Re: Looking for a small boat to learn on

If you can do some repairs there is a boat in Oklahoma City that is similar to a Flying Scot. On Craigslist there is an ad for a 1971 Tornado 16 for $900 with sails, trailer, paddles, and 4 life...

Re: I'm Done

What do you attribute this to? Are members going to other forums? Are they just getting tired of the internet? Or are you saying that there are fewer people who sail?

Re: plywood type for fiberglass .

Could you explain this better? What are you doing with the wood screws? Zinc plated or more like deck screws? How many screws and what size?

Are you using ACX or BCX (surely not CDX)? Just one...

Re: Best Dinghy for a Sailing School?

The Dyer Dhow is a good boat. Unfortunately it is worse than the Suncatcher and not as versatile.

To get a better Dyer than a Suncatcher you have to move up from the 9' Dhow to the 12 1/2' Dyer...

I'm sorry; I haven't been here since 04, 05, or even 06. I have really not a clue what you are talking about. From my own observations there are quite a few here with large boats and those who live...

Re: Best Dinghy for a Sailing School?

This sounds just like a Sunchaser. These are made of tough ABS Armorclad plastic and can be sailed with either a Lateen main or sloop rigged with a jib. You can repair the plastic with epoxy and...

I would tend to agree. The underwater products from Progressive Epoxy Polymers have been in use for some time. They now have more than just the original Splash Zone:

I am curious though. How large is the hole and why have you been unable to get a watertight repair?

Re: Soon perhaps

I got out on Lake Lemon for a good sail. There was the possibility of thunderstorms but I decided to go for it anyway. I tacked down the lake with gusts hitting 15 mph with full main and standard...

Re: Making your sheets look pretty

That won't work on my halyards; the contamination goes way down in the fibers. Brushing the casing won't help. These are lichens growing in the rope.


These are halyards (I put the wrong word in...

Re: 22 ft Sailboat for beginner

I guess this depends on how you define comfort. My boat could sleep a maximum of four which would be one in each quarter berth and two sharing the vee berth. I guess you would then have to put the...

Re: Making your sheets look pretty

You can try chlorine bleach if you want; I'll stick to oxygen bleach. I'll let you know though if these seem to wear out quickly now that I have cleaned them. I've seen ropes that have deteriorated...

Re: Making your sheets look pretty

My washing machine has a normal speed setting, a high speed setting and a low speed setting. I took both halyards off of the mast and put them in the washer on the low setting. It does not provide...

In terms of sailing/yacht clubs in my area.

Re: An Observation

Not really. There are a number of light dinghy's that show no particular optimization for racing. However, a Sunfish is clearly a light dinghy that was designed with racing in mind. Your objection...

Re: An Observation

Well, a puddle cat has the same beam as a puddle duck racer so there is no increase in stability. The first boat I sailed myself was a pirogue with a sprit sail and tandem seating. That wasn't a...

Re: An Observation

Well, I have no doubt that a puddle cat would be faster. I also know that most people would not sail a catamaran.
