Re: 3D Printing

David,

Thumbs up Off Center Harbor

This is a cool web site with a bunch of sailing videos from some of the folks who write for Wooden Boat.

It's definitely worth checking out and worth the couple of bucks for a full site...

Re: A Not so Good Experience with a Sailnet(er) transaction

Re: Boat sank at the dock

This is a real problem, and I believe quite intentional. During our claim the "manager" we were dealing with went to great pains to make the simplest things seem complicated in terms of what was or...

Re: Boat sank at the dock

Just a quick response as I don't want this thread to degenerate into an insurance rant.

First without getting into a long post on insurance statistics I find your numbers highly questionable. The...

Re: Boat sank at the dock

This is good advice.



What I've learned over the past year is that perception is naive. Insurance fraud, real fraud, by the insured is relatively rare.

The inflated number from the...

Re: Boat sank at the dock

My experience is a insurance adjuster/surveyor is more concerned with counting the dollars. They may try to determine cause or they may rely on the yard. It depends on whether the company is using an...

Re: Boat sank at the dock

There are two things that will determine your experience going forward:
1) Is your insurance company experienced with boats or is this a sideline?
2) And are they a reputable company? Size and...

Ah-hem. Take a breath boys. There's been some thread drift and some rock throwing, none of which is helping the original poster.

Re: How will nanotechnology improve sailboats and sailing?

I had the same thought but was thinking about masking off an area on the dinghy or even on the hull and spraying it on. Then keeping an eye on it over the course of the season to see if there was a...

Re: Canvas Costs

First I wouldn't trust any "experienced" canvas guy who couldn't at least give me a ballpark estimate.

Have you tried asking around the marina? If your existing dodger is in decent enough shape...

Re: Do Sailboats Sweat?

What you're seeing is pretty common. The same thing happened with our Catalina 22 when she was on her trailer.

You might try adding a solar fan to keep the air moving.

Re: TV antennas

Gary, I hadn't thought about that. I guess in Marathon you're trying to pull in stations from Miami.

Are there any local stations you pick up?

Hopefully I'm going to be cruising there next...

Re: TV antennas

Things to keep in mind:
You can't beat height. The higher you mount the antenna on your mast the more stations and better reception. I tried one of the flat Best Buy antennas that you mount behind...

Re: Daysailer vs cat 22

Congratulations!

I'm not familiar with the Peep Hen but it looks like a fun little boat. Cool that you can run her right up on the beach.
