Re: Cutlass Bearing Replacement??

It does swell, even the plastic (Thordon) swells a bit.
Your problem got fixed by itself. :)
Measure again in the spring, and it will be back to the dry "play".

Re: Boom brake advice

I also had the Walder but it worked well on the over 30K miles I used it.
I did not have a preventer, and never needed one, and had several accidental but controlled gybes.

Re: Paint for Cabin

Re: Jimmy Cornell's new Garcia Exploration 45

Great boat. Looks expensive, and totally push-button, including electric winches, wow. Is he many times rich now? I'd say this boat costs upwards of 800K.
