'Faster' is bang on. I've seen a couple of Simplicity furlers with bent forestay turnbuckles from sailing in high winds with the headsail partly furled. As the wind load tries to unfurl the sail, the...

seadover had it right. Use Debond as it is made just to remove 3M 5200. Don't mess around with gasoline or power tools. Use the Debond, then install the replacement transducer in the undamaged hole....

Old but good thread. Many boats will withstand more than the crew. Any boat with an offshore rating should be seaworthy, which doesn't have to mean it's sea-kindly. And "offshore" doesn't mean a...

Before asking what boat to begin with you must be sure of how you'll use the boat. Don't write-off MacGregor 26's, as the ones' built before 1996 were sailboats, not power-sailers. They are a great...

Stick to the marine quality

I recommend you only consider a marine 30 Amp cable from the dock to a 30 Amp receptacle on the boat. Household extension cords, even exterior rated, just can't handle the exterior marine...

Cored hull FRP

Yes, fibreglass hulls should outlive most owners but a wooden cored hull may not. Osmosis or cracks in solid fibreglass are repairable. If a wooden core gets wet the boat may be beyond economical...

Hughes / Hinckley

I'd read somewhere that Hinckley only had Hughes build the bare hulls for their 38's. Hinckley did their own liners and decks. I found a pic of one on yachtworld that shows the bump at the top of the...

The S&S designed Hughes 38 built in 1968 shared the identical hull with the Northstar 38 of the mid 70's and later Hughes 38's through the final hull in 1981. From the toerail down they are all 99%...

Gag reflex

I've pumped out a holding tank, by hand, through the deck fitting, once. It was memorable but not enjoyable. I've seen a couple on another boat take turns doing it between gagging. The big question...

Cool dry storage

If you leave them aboard you'll need an occasional recharge to keep them above 12.6 volts. There's little chance of freezing the battery if it's maintained above 75%. I'm not sure about the need to...

Clean the carb

CalebD,
- You could likely battle various symptoms for a long time, but I think it best to remove and clean the carb so that you know it is OK. A carb that hasn't been cleaned in years will have a...

I agree - Fuel Problem

I'm sure you're correct to believe it is a fuel problem. Heat or RPM related problems with any part of the ignition would either cause a lack of power at higher RPM or not allow it to restart so...

Hughes 38 engine access

The Hughes 38 side chain plates are almost centered in the side decks, which do slow you down a bit when walking forward. The MkIII has the mainsheet traveller mounted on the coach roof, which...

Hughes 38

I have Hughes 38' Hull #205 from 1980. That was the last year that the factory made them. Over the years they sold both complete boats and kits. I know of two Hughes 38' kits that were sold in 1979...

Half of us have or had motorcycles

It's amazing but many sailors were or are motorcyclists. Ask Around and you'll be amazed. Maybe it's a freedom thing or maybe it's that we don't mind spending some money on the good things in life.
