Re: Diesel engine

I had a lot of rust on mine from a leaky water pump. Don't ditch it until you get some good advice. It doesn't take that much to clean it up, change the belts and impellers, change the oil and...

Re: Inflatable PFD Failures?

It would be a necessary and timely article. I've been thinking about this and other PFD issues a lot over the past 3 years; however, I'm not sure what inferences you'd reliably be able to make about...

Re: pics of sail covers made for lazy jack systems?

Why do you want to get rid of the pig tail? Does it catch when you're sailing? There're ways to fix this. Personally, I would get the lazy jack system for ease of dropping or reefing the sails, and...

Re: Cleaning/Sanitizing fresh water holding tanks

I've used the Peggy Hall method to get rid of the "old" taste in the tanks, but since I use the tank water often, it's no longer a problem. Generally water straight out of the tap is good. Or you...

Re: 3 GM 30 Yanmar, White Powder

That sounds like an easy fix. After having scraped quite a few old gaskets off the same type of Yanmar, it does sound like the gasket has failed and you'll probably find it practically welded to the...

Re: First time crewing/racing this weekend

Yeah, this is how most boats operate. As I understand the history, though, this is one of the reasons why the Northern California Offshore Racing Council was created. Post-accident reviews from when...

Re: First time crewing/racing this weekend

Ditto all the above - great advice! Here are some other things: Be on time; don't bring too much extra gear so you might want to ask what's best; be prepared to be wet so bring dry cloths for...

Spinlock PFDs

What do you think about the 2013 Islands Race accident report that found "four of the five Spinlock deck vests failed to work properly." The report also said that: "The panel recommends that Spinlock...

Re: San Francisco in January?

Re: Tips or Suggestions, Sailing from San Diego to San Francisco

It's funny how many people say not to go north, or go to Hawaii first, etc., when that's generally just not feasible. This is not a trip to be taken lightly but you would think there would be more...

Re: Ropeclimber intro

Welcome! I got my start in sailing at the Sailing Club of Washington (briefly) and then crewing on boats on the Chesapeake. Many opportunities and great sailors are there. Have a great time ---- and...

Re: My First Cruiser: Pearson Triton

A week is very ambitious. It took me almost 2 weeks to clean the funky, nasty smell out of my boat. A lot of this was caused by mold, which you're bound to have in a Miami boat. I used a 10% bleach...

Re: Opinions on LP Blue Hulls

I think the boat I recently bought may have had original Navy Awlgrip from the late 80s, or at the very least, the past 13 years. It looked really bad with lots of scuffs down to the gel coat. I...

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I started sailing about 4 years ago, but grew up in and on the water. In late January 2013, I bought a Freedom 38. No partner. It needed a lot of work, some of which I did myself and other stuff I...
