Windvanes on Ketches or Yawls

I now own a Hinckley B-40 that was originally rigged as a yawl but was converted by Hinckley to a sloop at the request of the owner. He was the US dealer for the Atoms wind vane and apparently the...

Best New Cruiser 42-45 under $1,000,000

The short answer to your query is - probably no. However, I''m not sure if I understand what you''re trying to ask, or perhaps, imply. As a Hinckley owner I can say that I have had as much fun...

When does BigRed56 get out of jail?

I, for one, thoroughly enjoy Jeff_Hís posts. I certainly have not found them to be too long since some of the topics he speaks to do not lend themselves to brief discourse. Personally, I think I...

Towing your dingy

Bruce Bingham has a very good description of how he towed an 8 foot Trinka over some 18,000 miles (9,000 miles on open ocean) in his book, "The Sailor''s Sketchbook", pp. 64-68. The rest of the book...

Cabin sole finish

On-board waste treatment

Don,

We had a LectraSan unit installed in our last boat, a 1981 Gulfstar 44. It worked reliably for the 12 years or so that we owned her with the exception of one problem that I''ll relate later....

3M 5200 Clean Up

Mineral spirits and tons of paper towels will clean 5200 that has not cured. However, I don''t think that 5200 will adhere to starboard well enough to provide a seal. From my experience with...

Spectra Lifelines?
