Re: Sailing Magazines

The only one I subscribe to is Good Old Boat, which I really like for the balance of DIY articles, reviews of old boats and some practical articles on things like sail trim, how to use a traveler...

Re: Chucking my propane stove, what to replace it with

Andrew, I'm in Brazil, so I can't even contemplate having a wood stove! I don't see a problem having both though. I'm sure a wood stove also requires some safe operational practices to prevent fires...

Re: Chucking my propane stove, what to replace it with

A billion people cook with querosene? Where? I'd say propane is the most-used cooking fuel world-wide. If you keep the propane installation simple (few connections where a leak can occur) and turn it...

Ausp, if your biggest issue is the latches, I'd say you've got a pretty good boat!

Re: Advice on changing a cutlass bearing

I plan on removing the shaft without cutting it. I have very good access to the drive train and I don't see it being a problem. Finding a new shaft where I am, on the other hand, would be a...

Re: Another paint thread....

I think if it's exopy-based paint, it'll work out fine. I've tried outdoor paints for tennis courts and the results were fantastic. Sometimes it's worth it to look for products that don't have...

Advice on changing a cutlass bearing

I'm getting ready to haul my boat to paint the bottom and do some boat work. One of the projects is to change the cutlass bearing and I have never done this before on this boat. It's a full keel boat...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Smack, wouldn't you say Rebel Heart's problems were more related to maintenance issues than any design issues? Not that I think the HC is the best boat for offshore sailing, but they do get around.

Re: Annoying Halyard Slap

I grew up across the street from a yacht club and the constant tinkling sound of halyards slapping on masts. To this day I love the sound! It reminds me of a childhood spent on the water and around...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Mark, you don't have to sugarcoat it! Tell us how you really feel. :)

I couldn't agree more on the idea of a dry, shaded cockpit. In the tropics it's where you spend most of your time and it has...

Re: Why are hull/deck joints built the way they are?

I don't know about that Don. I certainly know a few boats that have caused their owners a lot of strife trying to find leaks at the hull-deck seam. A friend had a leak that dripped in the cabin when...

Re: possible to buy a seaworthy sailboat under $20000 that requires very little fix?

A mask and snorkle (30 bucks?) is all you need to maintain your bottom. It's easy to dive and scrub a hull if the water is warm enough. I can't imagine lugging scuba gear around just for that purpose.

Re: Why are hull/deck joints built the way they are?

I think it must be cost and ease of assembly. The hull and deck each come out of their own molds. The cheapest and fastest way to put them together is glue and screws. It would be very time consuming...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Jon, what model is your Helios? It looks pretty darn good. Does it have any parts made of mild steel? Any corrosion problems so far?

Re: Shatterproof glass on hatch?

CCRiders, I think that's the vídeo I saw- they shot a 2x4 out of a canon and the glass deformed and crazed, but remained intact. You woudn't happen to know the comercial (market) name of this glass,...
