Re: Why are wheels so big?

Well, Once again I find myself the subject of Sailnet ridicule due to my pursuit of comfort afloat. I'm with Gary, after standing from San Francisco to San Diego first thing I bought was a cushy seat.

Re: Rudder Replacement Problems

Seems like you are going to need an "expert" opinion, I'd involve a surveyor whose work I'm familiar with. After checking the problem in water he'll need you to do at least a "short haul" so he can...

Re: Vang mechanical advantage

My Catalina 320 came from the factory with a Garhauer that would allow the boom to lower past "level" therefore crashing into the dodger unless held up by the topping lift. When I took it in to...

Re: USCG Boarding Procedures

I was motoring into harbor, they never boarded, I showed them my "paperwork" and they had me proceed while they followed and I held stuff up so they could see. My flares were expired but still within...

Re: Standing Rig Turnbuckles (How Do You Mount Them?)

I try to stick with "righty tighty, lefty loosey" where threads are concerned, I guess that's right hand up ?

Re: Masts - deck or keel stepped?

I've been wondering about the use of "sleeved" masts on a lot of boats lately, there's a Hunter next to me and the mast is joined about 8 feet above the cabin top, it's a conventional main, not...

I drove a Mainship 34 for a while, big Cummins diesel , worse than any sailboat I've ever been on. So kind of depends on the powerboat, but a sailboat rides better anyway. We used to say " a sailboat...

Re: Non-Sailor With Question

Maybe that movie was trying to show that when extremely fatigued even an experienced mariner can make really poor decisions.

Re: Masts - deck or keel stepped?

Most Catalina 310's I've seen have in mast furling which are all deck stepped aren't they? I really don't know, just assumed there are no keel stepped furling masts ?

Re: Boat name/graphic: Where and how big?

Make it big enough and you'll be fine with the name on the sides. I once had a Navy warship hail me by name from miles away on the open ocean, I could barely see him.

Re: generator a good idea?

I carry a Honda 2000 companion model but the primary usage is to make more hot water, no matter how frugal, on day 3 your 6 gallon supply is exhausted. Takes my 27hp diesel forever to make a hot tank...

Re: minor damage to teak toe rail

The method you propose is sometimes referred to as a Dutchman, it is common to make the gouge a regular shape with a chisel (old school) or router. This makes it easier to make a patch piece that...
