Re: NY Harbor area Sail Loft Recommendations?

She was able to replace the UV cover on my genoa (25' boat) for $200 and it seems to have been done well. Unfortunately it took 3 weeks longer than originally discussed. Nice lady, she has a lot...

Re: Sailing around the world on a Sunfish - non stop

Relieved to read the responses. Sometimes on sailnet it seems like people spend too much time crushing dreams instead of encouraging the modern-day Slocums. Well, I mean, we should discourage the...

Seems like three possible general...

Re: Adhesive for hatch gasket?

There is a groove but good point about eventual removal. Any rubber cement will do?

Thanks also for the tip about the ends - I will make a 45 degree cut and glue that part with the 4200.

Re: Adhesive for hatch gasket?

Thanks - will use the Home Depot stuff, doesn't have tape attached, will also use the tip to use the solvents on the neoprene too. Thinking of using 3m 4000 since I have it to hand.

Re: First Accident What Did I Do Wrong?

Turning towards the wind that's currently blowing too hard feels counter-intuitive. It also feels counter-intuitive to release the mainsheet (which I think many of us imagine as letting the sail get...

Re: Best Boat Hook?

A friend at the yacht club has a double hook on his - makes picking up the mooring line way less stressful. Haven't been able to find one for sale, unfortunately.

Re: Why All the Absurd Circumnavigation Threads?

I'd also guess that the virtual world inspires more fantasy - probably down at the yacht club the focus shifts back to fixing the broken winch and trying to figure out local currents.

Re: New storm jib rigging

Could you link to a picture of a "pre-feeder"? I'd like to be able to visualize what you're explaining. I'd like to be able to quickly change my furling genoa to a jib too.

Thanks.
