Re: Modified International Folkboat

Thanks folks, and especially Jeff, I was hoping to get someone who had sailed these boats a lot to weigh in, and I don't have the background to know entirely what would happen with such a large...

Re: Modified International Folkboat

The trim is definitely out, and with the boat on a trailer at the moment I can't see how much weight it would take to correct it. It might be that removing the outboard that's all the way aft in...

Modified International Folkboat

I went to look at an interesting boat for sale this weekend, and I'd love to get some other opinions. I know there are plenty of people on here with opinions, so I'll provide some context and then...

Re: Sailing Magazine recommendations?

I do a lot of flying, and I pick up something from the newstand whenever I'm on a long haul. Sailing/Sail/Yachting/Superyacht/Multihull Sailor/whatever all seem to be just advertisements and PR (to...

Re: Buehler Emily

... I guess I walked into the bucket jokes ... not that I'd have far to walk in that boat.

Thanks for the engine dissection Capta, that's exactly the sort of thing that I wouldn't have known to...

Re: Buehler Emily

Thanks for the input! The photos he's put up seem very much like the shots he just had around, and not shots taken to sell the boat. If it's still on the market when I get home I'll take a look....

Buehler Emily

Has anyone encountered a Buehler Emily (30' home-built cutter) in their travels? Or, better yet, has anyone in the PNW encountered Avalon (alt. name Narwhali)? I just saw this ad come up, and I'm...

Re: Greatest fear?

Losing my head in a bad situation. As long as I can think rationally, I can do my best. If something goes wrong, but I did my genuine best, then so be the consequences. But if something goes wrong...

Re: RYA schools around the world (almost)

Thanks! From his blog it looks like he sometimes works with Dave from Discovery Sailing, do you know if they're affiliated, or just friendly neighbours? I've talked to Dave on the phone, but not...

Re: discovery sailing, NS?

Thanks c25! I talked to him on the phone, and he seems pretty down to earth. I'm just trying to do my due diligence before potentially flying across the country.

RYA schools around the world (almost)

I'm planning to take some classes, probably through the RYA (although I'm open to people convincing me to use another system). I live in BC, my SO lives in Sweden, and the only Canadian RYA...

discovery sailing, NS?

Has anyone had any dealings with Discovery Sailing, in Nova Scotia? I've started talking with the owner about doing some RYA classes with him. Has anyone had good or bad experiences with them, or...

Re: industrial/commercial PFDs

I've been paddling canoes and kayaks in whitewater all my life, and I still can't swim in a foam pfd with any kind of speed or efficiency. Especially not over a great distance. If I were to come off...

Re: C&C 25 MkII

Hmmm, it looks to me like it would be a lot harder to shift the C&C overland, is that fair to say? However, it also looks like it would be a much better boat to run up the outside with, once I get to...

Re: San Juan 24

Ah, so I might be thinking in the the wrong terms for portability? I'd be renting a trailer for the drive anyway, so I suppose adding a crane isn't going to break the bank more than I'd be doing...

Re: San Juan 24

So .... sounds like I should double check the hardware, the outboard and the deck core if I get a chance to see it, in addition to the usual persnicketiness. I've e-mailed the seller for pics of the...

I did not, in the end - my weekend looking-trip fell through. I haven't made it over yet, but I likely won't any more. TQA's warning about engines put me off (they're my weakest maintenance point, so...
