We were neighbors, and you were one of the few people I knew, if I have you correctly. You're on B dock, you were a nurse, you lost your lovely bride two years ago to cancer, and you're working on a...

Insulation: Reflectix or Sheet Styrofoam

I've lived aboard a Caliber 28' sailboat in Boston harbor the last three years and I'm amazed how much juice I use for the two oil-filled radiators. The boat isn't insulated; it's a plywood-cored...

Thank you, all

Thanks for your help on this. If I allow 3 CF plus add another 1 CF to assure proper chain fall, that would fit nicely. I am concerned though about the comment that I should allow 10:1 scope. In...

Where can I buy 420 half models?

We want to create trophies for our high school sailing team. I offered to carve plaques but don't really want to carve half models (I'm better at letters than 3D shapes). There are so many zillions...

Why so much chain?

My plan is to sail south next summer, for a year or three of scuba and snorkeling, in and around the Caribbean. SN'ers advised an all-chain rode as nylon gets chewed up on the coral and volcanic...

Yes, White Water Marine

I saw them in Good Old Boat and had them make up seven or eight pieces to my design: hardware for an offset table. Most of it was 305 stainless for the interior, some was 316 so I could use the...

Shame on the moderator

This thread starts out functionally enough, a member asking about PS ratings on running rigging. But then it slides into a personal conversation between three, one of whom is a moderator. Isn't the...

Cutting Foam: Best to use a serrated knife or electric knife. It cuts so quickly.

I've been following the conversation too as I'm headed south to the Bahamas/Caribe and worry (due to expense and weight) that I need an all-chain rode so the coral doesn't shred my nylon.

Why have diesel oil tested?

I've asked for much guidance on Sailnet. You've all been very helpful.

One fellow asked me how many hours were on the engine. It's a 1985 Yanmar RWC 2GM and the tach shows only 80, which I find...

Still learning -- do most use a diesel remote starter?

Thanks, I'm learning from your conversation. Don't understand how you'd accomplish what you've described without a remote starter switch (or push-button). Is this a common item for diesels?

Look at Albergs, Bristols, Pearsons, Contessas, CE Ryders, Shannons, Cape Dories, Southern Cross, et al -- there's an author, James Baldwin, who has written extensively about upgrading his Pearson...

Help me understand storm portlight covers

I've never seen any articles on storm portlight covers.

Do sailors dislike Lewmar 43s?

I just bought a pair on eBay, cheap. Yes, they're seized but I can fix most anything and they look sharp (nice chrome with black top rings) and fairly current (not the old Lewmar England ones). But...
