Re: Grinder position for offshore.

I know this is getting a little off-topic, but, if you were going to reconfigure the cockpit, you could go with a tiller. V40 is big for a tiller, but, it has been done. Then you would have plenty...

Re: Upwind performance, blue-water boat

That is why I don't think you should discount heavy displacement boats too quickly. If you are faced with beating into a rough sea for a few days, you may not be able to take advantage of a light...

Think about selling your car and getting something like a used Jeep Grand Cherokee. It has a tow capacity of around 5000 lb. Then your options would open up.

Re: SV Seeker - 74' DIY sailboat

Looks like he is about 14 miles away from the Tulsa Port of Catoosa. Obviously, truck transport would not be able to go directly, but, it is not too far. From that port, it looks like navigable...

Re: Ideas for interior bulkhead coatings?

How about prepping with some media blasting breathing through a hookah dive system?

I'm kidding about that. It seems if you are worried about adhesion because of old paint, you would need to put...

Re: Upwind performance, blue-water boat

I would figure out how to afford a post-blister-boat Valiant 40. Would be a bit older than your target.

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Cool. Do I see a little negative roach on one side? That should decrease fluttering, I would think.

Re: Thoughts on hardware store epoxies available

I would go ahead and get good epoxy, a couple different hardener speeds, and fillers. Just get twice what you think you will need, then you will have some for future projects. It won't really save...

Re: Awlgrip Vs Interlux Perfection

Three hours on a couple square feet with 60# should have gone through the paint, gel coat, and maybe a few layers of glass. If you find that you do NEED to remove the old paint, it may actually be...

Chicago "Strictly Sail"

I haven't been to the boat show for a few years. I must say, I was a little disappointed. The show is now combined with power boats and RVs. Calling it "Strictly Sail", is a misnomer. There are...

Re: West Wight Potter

I think that is exactly why someone would want to take a C22 offshore... because it is totally nuts. What is the fun in going out in the middle of the ocean with a seaworthy boat. Seriously, I...

Re: What happens when the water gets hard

I'm guessing they need to have a lot of things happen to go out on that lake. The lake they are on is Mendota in Madison, WI. Which is only about 5 miles wide. Obviously, they are not going that...

Re: Microburst or Tornado? El Nino 2016

I wouldn't trust just the furling line to secure the furled sail. Put a bungie around it, or a spare halyard.

I haven't had a furling sail for a while; so, here is a question:
