Re: Noobie--Just purchased my first boat: Holder 14

I bought a Vagabond 14 last summer to learn on - also my first boat. You'll enjoy it a lot, they're fun. I'm inland so I don't get to play on the salt, but I've found the boat to be very stable. ...

Re: Messy fenders UGG !

It's high pH - really caustic. It works great, but don't get it in your eyes or leave it on aluminum. Some people will have skin reactions too. It's about the same pH as oven cleaner, I think.

Re: Ga sailing School

Thanks for the invite George. I'd love to stop by and see the boats if I'm ever in the area. My plan is to move up to something I can weekend on the lake or coast in a couple years, and both those...

Re: Ga sailing School

Good to hear your evaluation. I've been thinking about doing the 101 classes with them. I'm in the Macon area, and this seems like the closest, best option for a school.

Re: Lights for boat without a battery?

Just FYI, if you want to run a battery on the Holder, it's not that hard to mount in the forward cubby. You can run wires aft to a trolling motor for backup propulsion and could wire in lights if...

Re: 14 foot sailboat on a 17 foot trailer okay?

Hey, I have a Vagabond 14. Same boat, and same as the Hobie 1-14. There's a good group of owners on Yahoo groups and a facebook group that's mostly the same people.

My boat has a tiny Dilly...

1/2 oz oval fishing sinkers (lead, steel, or brass)
3' to 6' pieces of 100lb test fishing line tied to the weights

Re: this puts the price of boats into perspective

First off - Hey Mad! Had no idea you were over here.

Second - It's the same as the performance car market - but even more so. Thinking I'll be moving up to a weekender style boat in a couple...

Re: Stinky Foul Weather Gear

A lot of dive shops in FL that rent wetsuits swear by our disinfectant / deodorizer OdoBan Eucalyptus scent. They dilute it at about 1 oz/gallon and soak the wetsuits in it after each rental, then...

Re: Bilge cleaner

If the stuff has orange oil - (chemical called d-limonene ) - then it can attack and weaken or melt some plastics and rubbers. My company makes some cleaning products with d-limonene in them as...

Re: US, Cuba seek to normalize relations - Sailing Related

Very true, but don't expect that to last long at all. I suspect that discount department stores will be the second ones to storm the beach - just after the first-wave resorts have paid enough wages...

Re: Derelict Catalina22 value? (bottom feeding content)

LOL. I thought about that, but it's too damn big and has none of the charm. I thought about turning it into a play pirate ship for a local playground, but the liability makes that a no-go.

Re: Place to buy solid wood tillers

That's what I'm using on my Vagabond (Holder) 14. Hickory axe handle from Lowe's. Works great although I think I will thin out the tip a little this winter for better ergonomics. Could be a little...

Re: Derelict Catalina22 value? (bottom feeding content)

I stopped by and took another look at her. The hull has taken some serious damage along the deck-to-hull joint on the port side - the rub rail is missing, the joint is frighteningly wavy (like +-...

Re: Derelict Catalina22 value? (bottom feeding content)

Yeah, that's kind of what I'm hoping. I don't really have the funds to hang on a project like this over the time frame it would take to disassemble and sell the stuff.

My other lurking thought...

Derelict Catalina22 value? (bottom feeding content)

There's a home in my neighborhood with a Cat22 sitting out back on a trailer. It's been there since I move to the neighborhood almost 13 years ago and it's never moved. The house recently got...

Re: Turning turtle

If in doubt, tie an empty milk jug or a 2 liter soda bottle to the top of the mast. Not sexy, but dead cheap and effective.

Re: What do you do for food on a day cruise?

sandwich from the deli in the grocery mega store, bag of trail mix, couple of beers. But I only have a 14' boat. No room for anything else.

I love to cook, though, and one day will have a boat...
