Re: Death of in-mast furling/new mast

Yeah, dropping that kind of cash for a cosmetic thing seems so odd... especially if you are selling your boat. I mean, you could redo all of the cabin upholstery, hire a bunch of models to pose...

Re: Death of in-mast furling/new mast

Good points about the lack of washed up boats in the BVI. We chartered down in the Grenadines last Feb, and lots of boats had RF mains.

Well, come to find out, the owner is currently (as in...

Re: RF Main pros and cons

Hello all,

Glad to join the lively discussion.

To me, it seems that the biggest argument against a RF main is dealing with the worst case scenario. Say, you finished the bottle of rum and woke...

Seattle Upholstery

Can anyone recommend an upholstery shop? My 1990 C&C 34+ is looking a bit threadbare.

Anywhere in the Seattle/Tacoma/Portland area is fine.

Esteemed sailing colleagues,

Sup Puddin?

I did find one! If the survey goes well, we'll be sailing her down the end of May. We'll pull over in Seattle and buy you a beer for your help and advice.
