Re: Tinted 1/2" Acrylic Companionway Sections

I love moulding talk. Was just trying to think of the name of the molding called Lattice. Stiles, rails & lattice begin!

Look for an app that will give you radar images of your area. Preferably an app from NOAA since they are the ones who operate the radar equipment.
Radar weather images are pretty easy to read and...

Re: Good Small Boat for Older, Fatter Woman to learn on

Congrats Nancy!

The Pintail will make a great starter/learning boat for you. I actually enjoy doing the sanding and varnishing work that boats like this might want. Hope you do to.

Re: Groton CT to Branford CT

Are the Mermaids the outer breakwalls to the harbor of New Haven? If so I heartily agree but we had already made the harbor and found the public dock as the sun sank below the horizon. The shipping...

Re: Groton CT to Branford CT

I like the way Jim thinks. Pick a best choice Plan B location like Pilot's Point as your possible stop over point.

Re: Chainplate/Bulkhead repair?

Keep in mind, that stainless steel (SS) does not like being encased in epoxy and deprived of oxygen. In a situation like this SS can rust if wet over years.

Re: Groton CT to Branford CT

That is about a 50 mile hike so it is do-able in one day. At a rate of 5 knots it could take 10 hours so don't be shy about using your engine to maintain 5 knots of speed. Also, try to time leaving...

Re: Chainplate/Bulkhead repair?

Any repair using plywood, whether temporary or not, will fail rather quickly if possible water intrusion is likely. Original bulkhead material was likely plywood too.

Could you simply cut the...

Re: Help!! Identifying a boat

MacGregor made a 19', 21', 22', 24' & 25' model sailboats. No 23 footer.

Without a picture I'd guess it is the MacGregor 21'.

Re: Fiberglass repair/id?

The consensus for repairs like this is to grind them out at at 12:1 radius, deepest in the middle.

Re: Fiberglass repair/id?

Alberg 30; probably an older boat from 1960's - 70's.
