Re: Not impressed with Samson Ultra-Tech line

I'm aware of the differences in these two lines. Genoa sheets are short and lightly loaded compared to their size (since they are sized for comfort).

If your foresail is around 600sqft then in...

Re: New York to Cape May ok for beginners?

I grew up in OCNJ.. back before it became a haven of McMansions. Friends of ours owned the now defunct 59th street pier and we would go surfing in Corson's inlet. With an outgoing tide, it would...

Re: So where the heck do you shower???

Just don't jump in while in the marina. I just don't trust dock wiring.

Re: Winch Free Spins

The digital camera is your friend. Take pictures of EVERY STEP as you dismantle them.

Tape down the edges of the box around the winch. Those springs will try to escape and go for a swim.

Re: If you live in Hawaii.....GET YOUR BOAT OUT OF THE WATER ASAP!!

My brother was going to come to the mainland (lives on Maui) but does not want to leave his house. He is high enough that he is not worried about storm surge. I know that a lot of the marinas there...

Re: Creepy sailing stories?

We were sailing in thick fog in the days of the simple gps, no chart plotter. We were headed towards a standard Long island sound 10' buoy so we could get our bearings for sure.

Re: Solo Climbing the Mast- Block and Tackle

I don't use block and tackle. I use klemheist knots--similar to prusicks but I like them better--in 2 loops of 3/8" utility line from a rock-climbing store. The knots work as well as mechanical...

Re: New Sails arrived any tips?

A brand new sail should not need much halyard tension to achieve it's designed shape. It is not until it starts to get old and stretch that you end up having to start cranking on the halyard to pull...

Re: New Sails arrived any tips?

i have a new 8 oz Dacron and it is quite stiff and difficult to flake on the boom. Also it is quite slippery and the flakes want to slide off of each other. May take a second look at lazy jacks.

Re: Interior space Catalina27 vs Alberg30
