Re: Sail up to reduce rolling?

Paul, yo mean like this? :D Never, ever, flog your sails. The jib never really works while motoring in dead calm. As others said, try moving the traveller all the way over, tighten the vang and...

Re: Suggestions for 28-32 cruiser?

About ten years ago I was measurer for the C34 International Owners association. At the time we were considering modifying our one design rule concerning shoal draft boats. I got the opportunity to...

Re: How many people do I need to fly my a-sail

I spliced a Harken ratchet block with a snap shackle to the snuffer control line. Now I can shackle the block to a padeye on the forepeak and pull “up” on the control line to pull down the sock. ...

Re: Suggestions for 28-32 cruiser?

If you are serious about buying, by all means go and check out that C28. If anything, it will help calibrate your eye on what to look for. When you go, get the “HIN” (hull identification number). ...

Re: Single line reefing question

Knuterikt, thanks for the tip! I will need to consult my sail maker on placing this over my existing cringle. I have found out that UK is very wary of modifying their tape drive sails. (it took a...

Re: Single line reefing question

I read where some guys may only reef once or twice a season whereas out here I’m reefing once, maybe twice per weekend, all summer long. Needless to say, I am most interested in this topic.

Re: Single line reefing question

I'm at a loss here. There are times when I want more draft even after I've reefed? I've always sought to flatten the sail as much as possible and have not encountered a time when I needed to "power...

Re: Do the Cat 22s, and the S2 26 footers, etc., use spinnakers?

Minnsail – Flying a spinnaker on a C22 is a pretty easy affair. I first flew mine while tied to the dock. You will be doing end-for-end gybes which means to gybe - you will unclip the pole from the...

Re: Sailing around the world on a Catalina 22 sailboat

Not to stoke the fires, but Catalina did make a fixed fin keel version of the boat during it's long, long, production history. Once, I did a round trip to Monterrey from Santa Cruz over a weekend. ...

Re: How do I handle insurance claims?

I would be contacting Selden and Charleston Spar to see if they even make an extrusion with the same cross section as your old mast. That is the show stopper. I would then find out the price and...

Re: Ah!quick help. Extender plate under furler?

North - I calculate your rake to be 6 1/2 inches (for a one degree rake). Care to share some of your sailmaker's thoughts on your new jib? What is the LP? And the reasoning behind the low clew? My...

Re: Ah!quick help. Extender plate under furler?

Don't want to sound too obvious but is it possible that they installed the head and backstay backwards? That would explain why one is "too long" and the other "too short" by the same amount?

Re: Torn Main Can I Fix It?

Perhaps I'm not being clear. The "vertical" tear is along the bolt rope seam and the OP should overlap the first repair with the second. (looking like a "T" and not an "L"). If the OP uses the 5oz...

Re: Torn Main Can I Fix It?

Yes, the best of all worlds would be to replace the entire upper panel and then reattaching the head board. That would entail sewing/sail making skills beyond the novice level. I was trying to find...

Re: Torn Main Can I Fix It?

Campbic, ouch! Ugly! I estimate this as a do-it-yourself-job-starting-with-no-tools-or-supplies to cost a little over $100 and a bunch of blisters. Getting a sail maker to do it will be a little...

Re: Boat won't come up into wind

Re: Boat won't come up into wind

Re: Boat won't come up into wind

Let’s see if I can remember my rigging formulas correctly. Weather helm is when CE is aft of CB and lee helm is the opposite. Cruising type rigs have a rake in the range of 1 – 2 degrees whereas...
