roller furling help

I agree that unfurling should never be a problem. Normally the jib sheet you are pulling should be on a winch, if for no reason other than the fact that it will end up there anyway as you trim in. ...

two collisions in one night, I''''m not happy

There seem to always be a few in every fleet, and generally their reputations don''t help them in the protest room even when they are "right." I was recently on a race where a particular navigation...

Mast boot sealer???

I replaced my old rubber wedges with SparTite last year. It did solve the problem of water getting in around the mast. (I still use a Sunbrella cloth boot, since SparTite doesn''t like UV.) Follow...

Morgan 35

If there is bilge access close enough to the step, you may be able to view it. My Morgan only had a small access to the bilge, closer to the engine compartment. It could be used to inspect where...

Morgan 35

Realistically, it would be pretty difficult to inspect without unstepping the mast and shining a flashlight down the hole in the head floor where the mast goes through to the step.

Morgan 35

I am the proud owner of a 1970 Morgan 35, Hull No. 63. I bought the boat 5 years ago, but raced on it for about 20 years with the prior owners.

I agree with the mast step comment. Mine now has...

nonsuch 30: weird or wonderful?

I just sailed on one the other night for the first time in a dozen years. My cousin, who owns it, normally races on Etchells and SC 70s, but wanted something his wife would sail on. Because the...

Fuel fill (pipe) to (hose) adapters

West Marine may carry them, and will probably charge you an arm and a leg. You can get a stainless 1 1/2 male NPTx1 1/2 hose barb fitting at:

What to buy for $5000

Another boat to consider for Lake St. Clair is an S2 7.9. Very stiff, well made, nice boat. There are a fair number on the lake.

Budget Items to be considered....

Insurance is highly variable, by location, terms, etc. and will depend, in part, on the value of the boat. Most likely, you will need to get a survey (if the seller hasn''t done one to sell the...

Hand held GPS

I have the plain old Garmin 76 (w/o charts) for sailing in the Great Lakes. It''s a great unit. I have used the 76Map and for the extra $100 or so bucks, it''s worth it. SailNet has them on sale...

Cal 33'''' running rig

Running rigging in colors?

I''ve always found it a good idea, particularly with multiple halyards. Less important with sheets, although traditionally our spin sheets and guys are different colors. (With occasional newbies on...

Holding Tank

With no overboard discharge, you will not need a vented loop in the waste line. Capttb''s response is right, except I agree with alanporter that you won''t need to locate the tank inlet below the...
