Re: Galilee 15 Replacement Daggerboard?

Find a picture and make your own??? I bought an Eli dinghy, and they gave me a hunk of plywood. Not finished plywood....a hunk of bare lumber. Had it not been a 2 1/2 hour drive to get there, I...

Re: Ye better start believin"

You want adventure???? Look towards the jetski and jetboat market. There isn't any adventure left in sailing (at least where the non-sailing public is concerned).

Re: Ye better start believin"

I don't consider Somali thugs to deserve the name of pirate. Anyone can grab an automatic rifle and a RIB and go after unarmed ships. Historical pirates (and please don't think that I'm ignoring...

Re: Ye better start believin"

Well, with that one being wrapped to prevent chafing I'm guessing it wasn't used for slaves. The reality of pirates doesn't live up to the romance, for certain. Still, historical evidence suggests...

Re: Baby Barnacles

No, you misunderstood the law. The native tribes are still allowed a limited harvest, but they have to harpoon them from polar bear skin canoes. The real problem isn't the desire to hold the...

Re: Anyone have an Eli dinghy???

If you can scan the paperwork, you can email me at william.horning@gmail.com. Measurements and a good pic of the daggerboard would probably be good enough.....get me in the ballpark.

Re: What do you have for a cannon?

I've been thinking that one of these needs to make an appearance on my boat. Living in Maryland, and more specifically Montgomery County, somehow I think it may be problematic.

Re: Coast Guard rescues 4 "sailors" off Charleston...

Ok, but the article said they'd been out of Tortola for two weeks and the engines quit two days after they left. Seems to me that you'd be trying to get that taken care of.

Re: New to sailing...rigging question

Having a chance to look a little more closely at the spars, the boom has a cleat on one side. I guess it is set up for an outhaul, unless there's something else I'm missing. I'm figuring a buntline...
