Re: Help me teach my wife navigation

Denise said it perfectly. You wife doesn't see why she needs the skill. On our boat, I do most of the navigation, but Vicky can get us home if she needs to. So keep it simple, stress that's it's...

New favorite interior teak oil-Weiman vs. Formby

Wow. That's a shocking picture and I can see why you're so negative toward the finish. In this case, I'm virtually certain the reason is that the wood had a lot of moisture in it and / or the...

Re: New favorite interior teak oil-Weiman vs. Formby

I agree that something else must have been going on for the poly to fail. When I bought them, both my Sabres had no finish but the POs had used oil on the interiors. I sanded with acetone, sanded...

Re: Production buckets and the limits

I use a Lowes-type bucket in which Sampson sold the anchor line that we used for our last boat. But the wire handle was prone to coming off when dipping the bucket at 5 knots. So I replaced it...

Re: Buying my first boat please help

Agree with all. While some people hate brokers, on our current boat our broker negotiated MORE off the price than I asked based on the survey results. He was extremely helpful and found us a great...

Re: What to do what to do :)

You mentioned the Sabre 28, so I'll jump in.

We had one for 15 years and I don't think that my wife ever slept in the V berth. She and I always slept in the pull out settee in the main cabin. The...

Sabre 34 Cored Hull ?

Agree with all.

Call/ email Sabre. They definitely will reply.

Ditto the mast step problem. Our 38 seems to have had the problem but the PO fixed it and put in a new teak/ holly floor. I...

Re: Pacific Seacraft 63' ketch nears completion

Bad joke. There was a wheel but nothing for it to control. Now everyone knows why I didn't get many dates in High School. :cool:

Re: Pacific Seacraft 63' ketch nears completion

So I'm confused. I saw the mockup of the steering wheel but what purpose does it serve? I didn't see a rudder on the photo. The things clients will eliminate to save a few bucks........ :laugher...

Re: New main sail

Tell-tales are flying nicely, so it's trimmed right. You'll love having less weather helm and better pointing.

SHNOOL - does the foot look a little tight to you, the draft seems too far forward.

Re: Sabre 32 v Sabre 30 MKIII

Sorry! I've owned 2 Sabres, a 28 and now a 38.

To answer your questions, not sure what " full sail" is, the definition can vary. However, you should be able to go with full main and 130 Genoa to...

I would go with the 32. More space and weight. Love these boats, I've owned two.

Re: Removing cabinetry

An easier way is to use a wood chisel to take them out. Use a chisel 1/2 the size of the hole and starting from the center, undermine the plug. Work around the plug and then use the edge of the...

Re: Removing cabinetry

newhaul is close but the plug cutters in the link are crud. Do not use them, the plugs will not be snug. I use tapered plug cutters for a flawless fit:

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

If your family isn't behind a larger purchase, the result could be bitterness and less sailing. Happened with my parents. I used the boat more than my dad.

That's what we did. On top of that, we found one by luck with structural defects (2 rotted bulkheads caused by leaky chainplates) and got an additional $11k off our bid. I fixed them for about...

Re: Battens Vs No Battens

I believe that the Volvo boats use a variation of this configuration as well, so it's not a "compromise" per se.



When we had our last main and now with the 2+2, the battens were set at the...

The article has a number of flaws
1. The writer went out with a "good" sail and it shredded because he was unprepared. Clearly, the sail wasn't "good" but he somehow determined that it was because...

Battens Vs No Battens

Not at all true. Any mainsail will be difficult to reef off the wind (depending on size and wind speed) because the sail is pressed against the mast and track, binding itself in the track.. It has...

Re: Battens Vs No Battens

True. They're sort of archaic in a era where fuller roaches are the norm for most boats. I use a 2+2 configuration. Two full battens at the top and 2 partials at the bottom as a good blend. Of...
