Re: Volvo Ocean Race.

Re: Wet core in the hull - what are the options?

This thread is so predictable.

Re: Boat Insurance Rant

Re: Buying my first boat please help

It's quite "funny" to read all this about brokers and surveys as a Dane.
Thousands of second hand boats are sold here every year, and almost none is handled by a broker, nor is there any survey...

Re: Interior Paint- marine grade or not?

Re: Interior Paint- marine grade or not?

My previous boat was painted with non-marine enamel in the forepeak.

Re: And you thought you had a bad day...

Besides the fact, that the boat is dead, doesn't it require some kind for formal education in order to sail a boat of that size in the US?

Re: 220 buccaneer

I don't know this type of boat, but seems to be looking a lot like the Granada 23 from Denmark.

Re: Do I need new sails

I don't think it is possible to say antything about the conditions of your sails, based on age only. It depends on hours used, and especially hours exposed to sun and saltwater.
