Re: Kirby Fox 18 - No Jib??

Without the jib it will be slower on all points of sail and likely have more weather helm, and maybe not able to sail as close to the wind as with complete set. Jibs for boats that size can be had...

Re: Is Ericson 35 1972 built for offshore cruising?

Well, this guy removed all through hulls in his E37 (and his engine) to make the boat less prone to leaking, without addressing the condition of his rudder, where his leaks were eventually coming...

Re: Is Ericson 35 1972 built for offshore cruising?

Ericson 37 would be a better choice for offshore use. Better design (IOR 1 ton class) but less common than E35II. http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=2137

Re: Gul Infra Drysuit (BUY OR DON'T BUY)

That is a huge problem when buying on line. A lot of times you get a cheap Made in China piece of gear that is just worthless. I would first check with your local sports supply store to see if they...

Re: Sailing to London

Great video, as always. :)
On another note: How far up Thames can you sail with a 6 foot draft? Assuming that you take down your mast, of course.

Re: Pole end jamming

I would try a mix of candle wax and mineral oil. Roughly 3 parts of wax to 1 part mineral oil. Heat in a can and mix, pour on the parts while still warm. I use it on sail tracks and jib hanks. Quite...

Re: Waterfront Market

If you call a local pizza-joint they might deliver to a fixed location on ICW, like a bridge or a boat ramp. Then you can ask the delivery driver to get you some groceries on the list, for a generous...

Re: Retiring soon...

My apologies, but no insult was intended. Just being realistic. Handling a 40-50 foot boat in bad weather can be a real chore even for a strapping young man with a lot of experience.

Re: $3500 inexpensive bluewater cruiser

You can buy a Cal-20 for under 3 grand. Much better boat and perhaps blue water material for a good sailor.

Re: Flexible dagger boards?

Pine boards are more rigid and much easier to work with (softer) than plywood. Using a small hand held planer you can very easily shape the board in less than an hour. I restored a few small boats...
