You know, that's exactly what I was thinking. I was on a Najad 440 at the Annapolis show, and I swear this is what they did in the V-berth and open spaces in the salon and aft berth. They used some...

Ok, I'm admittedly coming to the discussion a bit late. After a whole bunch of research, I'm in the market for a Pearson 365. Yeah, the stock brown 60's plaid fabric is wretched. I expect, though,...

Skeeters - we didn't put screens in either the foredeck hatch or the companionway, and there was only one in the boat the whole night.

Peaceful night in the anchorage

I just wanted to share this picture. I had a great sail down to Still Pond, MD, on Friday, and it was a perfect, quiet, warm, evening on the hook. This is a great life we have....

Dock line snubbers

One of my friends who lives aboard his Pearson 365 told me I needed to go get dockline snubbers, since I spend a good deal of time aboard in the slip. Boy was he right! They make a huge amount of...

Nomenclature - deck to spreader banner thingy?

Ok, I have another noob question. On racing boats (for big races like the VOR, 5 Oceans, etc), when in port the boats will often fly a long crescent or trapezoidal-shaped banner thing with the boat...

You'd think so, yeah, but there are some issues with that. First, it assumes you're awake! If you're single handing, that can be an issue.

I'm quite fond of my Columbia 26. She's built pretty well. As with any boat of that vintage, you'll have work to do. Interior layout isn't bad. The head comes standard with overboard discharge,...
