Re: How do you stretch your season in the northeast

We sail until the docks come out so mid to late November. The best thing is there are no idiots out there, well, me and no other idiots out there. If you do go out late, keep a good sleeping bag,...

Re: Any info on crewed charters

Shorty,

We bareboat chartered a 31 footer out of Tortola last year. Sail yourself.

Re: cleats

I've considered jam cleats and clam cleats and cam cleats. (Sailors aren't an imaginative lot when it comes to naming things) and even bought a clam cleat but in the end i left my horn cleat on and...

Re: Unstep Mast

You're on the hard? The boat won't be rocking or the sails full. The mast isn't going to be under much load. Its a flag pole. Use StaSet or something like it to create a bridle that takes the...

Re: Catalina 22- Patching Sail, Weathered rigging & Teak, Hull stain cleaning?

Sounds like a fine little boat. You will enjoy her for may years, I'm sure.

Sailrite.com has all you need for the sail repair. Some folks use sail tape but to me, that's a quuick fix, not a...

Re: O'Day 272 - thoughts?

I am hoping to talk somebody local into taking me out on one before I get too deep. I see what you mean. My Lancer's keel is long (fore/aft) where the wing is short in all directions.

Re: O'Day 272 - thoughts?

Denise,

One of the things I am trying to keep in the picture is trailerability. A 30 footer just isn't. A 27 I can get away with but probably not that often. At least to launch and haul home for...

O'Day 272 - thoughts?

I've seen a few O'Day 272s around for reasonable prices. Wing keel, shoal draft, trailerable (a couple of times a year). These work for me. How about pros and cons? Tender/stiff? Fit and finish? ...

Re: Just Introducing Myself

Matt,

Plenty of boats to choose from but what about a price range? When you consider buying, be sure to add mooring, launch, haul and maintenance. Maybe it's already in your plan but it adds up...

Re: Greetings and Salutations

Welcome Cuda,

Doin' it right! I'm a huge fan of trailerables, at least for a while. Not familiar with a Converse but 22 feet is a good size boat to start with. Small enough to make mistakes and...

Re: Extra rope/lines for a new boat

I always have a 100 foot length of 3/16 StaSet. Easy to work with, cheap and strong enough for just about any emergency fix. Tensile strength is around 1900 lbs. Double it up and replace a shroud....

Re: Business Cards for your boat

Nice story.

We anchored at Damaricove Is and hunkered down for a blow. Next day, wind was down a little so we tried to leave. 1/2 mile out, wife in tears, my shorts nearly soiled, we limped back...

Re: From the "what were they (the designers) thinking" category.

I'm an architectural designer and one thing that I freely admit, and the shop guys have all heard this from me in the most self deprecating way, "it looks good on paper". The fact that they addressed...

Re: When to go Maine to Bahamas

I don't. I sail into November. Always bring a mummy bag in case somebody goes swimming. Worst part is we trailer and I have to go mid thigh to launch. Best part is I have the place to myself.

Re: Herniated jibsheets

Paul,

How are you currently attaching the sheet? I use a lark's head and to make things easy, I have some whipping twine at the very midpoint of my sheet. (I re-rig every sail) So, in kind, could...

Re: Ice Box Rebuild

Check to see if it's moisture cured. Some expanding foams are. If it's too thick, the outside keeps the inside gooey for years.

Re: Daytime anchor ball

Am I the OP???? Inland waters? I don't think so. As soon as I get out of the river, I'm in the open Atlantic. That's 15 minutes off the dock. Only sailed a lake once. Quite boring. I dodge oil...

Daytime anchor ball

Anybody use them? How about the motor-saill marker? I have in mind to make one that does both. Is this a viable product for, say, $29?
