Re: Need a headsail..what to go with?

Get the 155 genoa. You can use it furled about 4 turns, and as your skills improve let it out. You will have more fun and your skills will quickly get better. If you go with the 110 it may be several...

Re: Should I learn the sextant?

Sailing can be a life time of learning. Sailing has a long history and the sextant is a part of that history. I would vote for learning celestial navigation and all things related to sailing.

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

Tropic Cat you posted "No where in my post do I advocate any thing." You are in your original post advocating catamarans. Spew all you want.

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

Tropic Cat, the question asked by "Solon" wanted to know about catamarans. "Solon" is doing home work, just as all of have done. That's why the best boat in the world is the one you own and sail. The...

Re: What did you learn to sail on?

Learned to sail on a Sunfish while I was stationed in Puerto Rico, 1968. Was the sailing instructor after that.

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

Some years ago while sailing Mexico, we were out in 40 + Knts doing fine. There was a large Cat out at the same time. They had lots of trouble pointing, and the wind keep pushing them broadside to...

Re: CNN on Rogue Waves

I think the movie "White Squall" documented monster waves pretty well. Now that satellites scan the earth, they have pinpointed several locations where these monster waves are common.

It is a movie, it's value is partly what you bring, and the entertainment you experience, and like art what you gain while viewing.

Re: Going ashore while on the hook

Anchoring out is scary, like most things we do the first time. Do it a few times in your local area, and like all new things you grow into it, and all the what if's will fade. Do your homework and...

Re: Marina Fuel Nozzle Too Big

I have had this same problem. I was told that the fuel station was for large commercial boats ( D class ships) and the large nozzle is to pump fuel faster. A funnel comes in handy.

Re: If I had to get one new sail, what would it be?

I've got a 110 jib and a 150 jib. I use them both, but like the 150 best. When the wind picks up I let the main out some, which allows me to play the guests. Go with the 150. I sail solo most of the...

Re: Fiberglassing Attempt

More epoxy coats work best for me, also course or fine cloth weave makes a difference. Sanding the dried epoxy can be a problem as it gums up on the sander.

Re: Blisters, OMG

Fixing blisters is very important. If you let them go they will grow over time and damage the first fiberglass layer. If that happens it is a very big job to skin off the damaged fiberglass and...

Re: Self bailing cockpit?

I have self bailing on my dinghy, but self bailing does not work very well when going at slow bells. I agree with "Seaduction," self bailing means do it your self.

Re: Extreme Weatherhelm

It does seen strange that you go into irons with just the main when the wind is up. The only thing I can think of that has not been talked about is; the size of the rudder may be under sized for...

Re: handling gusts

Pinch (pinch her) pointing too high to windward. Pinching could cause your boat to stall, or at the least drop some speed. To correct heel it might be better to let the main out, and stay on course.

Re: Too big for a sunfish?

Sunfish, Sailfish, Snark are all fine boats and fun to sail. After a season or two you will want to move up to a larger boat, and they just keep getting more fun.

Re: Fuel Cleaning Service - Yes or No?

Some years ago, I got some bad fuel. I had to replace the filter all the time. I was not able to find a service to clean the fuel, so I put a hole in the top of my tank and cleaned it myself. I...
