Re: Choosing Topside Paint Problem

I'm in Amityville. What do you recommend I use to repaint my bootstripe ? I won't be using a sprayer, just the good old roll and tip method. Any tips for getting an acceptable finish ? The rest of...

Re: Choosing Topside Paint Problem

That's a good idea, I considered doing that. I don't know what the PO used and I have no way to get in touch with him. So a good, educated assumption would be to go with Awlgrip ?

EDIT: Why is...

Choosing Topside Paint Problem

Before I put my boat in the water I need to touch up the topside paint, however, I have no idea what paint is on there now and I've read here in a few threads that its not so good to paint over...

Re: Mooring Maintenance

Hmm interesting. I've only had my chain in the water for 2 years, this will be the third season. But I feel like an inspection will be more costly than just replacing, ya know ?

Re: Mooring Maintenance

Good call. I was thinking to just replace everything regardless, but I wasn't planning to keep the old set. I'm definitely going to clean it up and keep it if its still good !

Re: Mooring Maintenance

Indeed. Perhaps I will simply replace, unless I feel very confident by what I find there

Re: Mooring Maintenance

Good logic. I'm going to hold my breath, and unshackle it underwater so I can clean and inspect it carefully. It's shallow water, and I can hold my breath for a long time. Now the question is, what...

Re: Mooring Maintenance

Thanks for the replies. I'm curious...do you really think I need a diver ? The water depth is between 4'-8' depending on tide. At low tide I can pull most of the chain on deck nearly to the lowest...

Mooring Maintenance

Anyone keep their boats at mooring ? I dropped my 150lb mooring in June 2011. I used a little bit heavier chain, swivel, shackles etc. for what I researched as necessary for my 20' 2270lb...

Re: Sailing Around Long Island

Great points, and thanks for the link. For two years my father and me have sailed around the point and into Fire Inlet via Atlantic usually taking between 24-30 hours, but I'd like to do a solo trip...

Sailing Around Long Island

Hey guys, thought I'd turn to my favorite forum for this discussion. I'm planning to sail my boat home around Long Island (not a complete circumnavigation) from Montauk to Fire Island Inlet via the...

Re: New 10W Solar Panel. Question Regarding Wiring (with pictures)

Brian, I'm the one with 10W panel that started this thread last year. It seems as though most people agree with you, and last year I hooked my panel directly to my battery under that advice. I...

Re: New 10W Solar Panel. Question Regarding Wiring (with pictures)

Yea, it seems as though I may have to make some changes to my setup. Now I'm a little anxious to get to my boat and check on it. Thanks for the link.

Re: Montauk: What's the point ?

Struck by lighting ! That's definitely one of those "back-of-my-mind" fears. I've considered a homemade system for grounding my boat, but I've also read opinions that doing so can make you more prone...

Re: New 10W Solar Panel. Question Regarding Wiring (with pictures)

Thank you Mainesail, good info in there. I was the one who mentioned checking the battery voltage every evening. Although the sun was not set, it certainly wasn't at its peak. I didn't make it a...

Re: New 10W Solar Panel. Question Regarding Wiring (with pictures)

Glad you revived this thread asdf. It's a year old, but now I can report on how that season went with my setup.

I left the 10W panel connected to the battery all summer, and I never had an...

Re: Montauk: What's the point ?

Just a matter of getting accustomed, but the sound is some beautiful sailing. My biggest problem with the south shore is that unless your in the ocean, its always so shallow, and I hate having to...

Re: Montauk: What's the point ?

Ah yes, I've never encountered an experience quite as extreme as yours in the Fire Island Inlet, but when I was younger I sailed small catamarans (Hobie 16, Prindle 16 etc) out of Jones Inlet with my...

Re: Montauk: What's the point ?

Generally I have found the swell directly outside the inlet to be exaggerated by the ebbing tide, and in a very small way it was again observed this time as well. However, the swell was so small and...

To go around it of course. This Saturday me and my father left from Amityville to sail my Hurley 20 around Montauk Point, and into Lake Montauk where my little boat is now safely moored. I had a...

Re: VHF Antenna Mounting: Masthead vs Stern Rail

I didn't realize I could get the RG-213 for less than a dollar a foot, West Marine sells it for $2.99/ft. It isn't as much a question of affordability as much as taking advantage of the equipment I...
