Re: Jeanneau, the worst boat for the money?

NO. I have no desire to be in a hurricane. My hubris will dissolve about the time waves get to 10 meters. However I am sure the boat can take many times more then I can. At that point the trisail...

After the long read I decided to keep my traveler. I ordered a 40MM lewmar foot block, and will be downsizing the line to 5/16. The blocks are $20 each, the blocks I was replacing were $70 each, I...

Re: Does a sailboat need a travler?

perfect, thank you. Now I cannot figure out why they overbuilt it.
Seems to be less then 400# yet I have 5800# blocks, and a 3800# sheet.
I ordered a turning block, and will be switching from 1/2"...

Re: Does a sailboat need a travler?

Any idea how much force is actually put on the line that moves the traveler?
Is there a way to calculate it?

Re: Does a sailboat need a travler?

How do you believe heaving to would be done on a bermuda rigged schooner? Would I still use the foresail, and the jib, or the mainsail (aft sail) and the jib?

Does a sailboat need a travler?

We have two travelers, one for each boom.
The one for the foresail needs all new blocks, but I notice some boats have no traveler?
Does it have am advantage that a twin line does not?

Re: Tayana 37: Coamings cut off - is this repairable?

The value on a boat with that sort of damage would be about $10,000.

Re: Central vac

I wouldn't call it less convenient to plug in a hose and flip a switch. We vacuum daily, so its a chore.

Re: Jeanneau, the worst boat for the money?

It was a challenge, only because the boat was not ready for the trip.
It would have taken 6 more months to get the boat ready for the trip.
We enjoyed the trip up until the ICW, that was boredom,...

Central vac

Has anyone installed a central vac in their sailboat? I have been toying with the idea. We have two labs, a cat, and a lot of fur to clean up.
