Re: Need Help with Neglected Boat

I hate to see a boat trashed, but in this case it probably isn't worth the trouble. Even well sealed boats have problems with water getting into the core, and a long term deciliter like this it is...

Re: Rapido 60 - The most perfect cruiser?

It's a pretty interesting design. I probably would be looking more seriously at the Neel 65' were I in this market. Since they have a number of completed boats and worked thru some of the...

Re: Epirb battery

An EPIRB battery replacement isn't just replacing the battery, there are a number of other tests and requirements that must be done to recertify an EPIRB. At a minimum all of the o-rings and seal are...

Re: Rule 16 situation: Room to Keep Clear

The operative rule here isn't Rule 16, but Rule 12:

RULE 12: ON THE SAME TACK, NOT OVERLAPPED
When boats are on the same tack and not overlapped, a boat clear astern shall keep clear of a boat...

Re: Water Tank Storage Options

Drain it dry and wipe it out with a sponge. Unless there is a reason to store water in the tank (generally there isn't) it can only lead to trouble.

Re: Good Small Boat for Older, Fatter Woman to learn on

I am with Sal on this. Car top able is nice in theory, but there are very few boats that are actually light enough to reasonably lift onto the roof. The few I can think of are either whole unsutable...

Re: Questions about borrowing a friend's boat

Note this isn't legal advice, but GENERALLY if you are added as an additional named insured that is all it takes to cover you under her insurance. It is normally pretty painless so long as it isn't...

Re: Problems Sizing Ground Tackle for 50' , high windage cat

I honestly doubt there is one made, you might be able to find an old one in a bone yard, but I would be a little suprized. I guess you could have a machine shop fabricate one for you, but it would...

Re: Problems Sizing Ground Tackle for 50' , high windage cat

3/8" HT is the minimum recommended for your boat, so it will probably be fine. If I knew I was going to be living in high wind locations I would upsize the anchor and the chain to be honest. Spending...

Re: Legal distance for towing another boat?

Well, you are wrong. Just shy of 99% of world wide shipping is regulated by a treat called COLREG and the thin portion that isn't directly regulated is by default since when the non-regulated ships...

Re: Legal distance for towing another boat?

We were told by the tug that they were dragging a sonar boom searching the bottom for oil and gass. Aparently these ultra long sonars are much more acurate than shorter ones. Luckily enough they...

Re: Legal distance for towing another boat?

The longest tow I have run across was 9500m. I doubt that a mega yacht has enough line to tow something 'too long'.

Re: VOR broken mast

Reports are they were flying...

1) Main
2) Soylent
3) Frac Zero

Re: PS37 genoa -- what size?

It is very dependent on where you sail and what average wind speeds are. But a pretty conservative cruising recommendation is a 135 high clew jib with foam luff. Big enough to provide some power in...

Re: PS37 turning block arrangement

Lantau,

The further forward the block is moved the lower the load will be on the block. As positioned you are almost doubling the load the block sees compared to the sheet load. In addition,...

Re: Wetting out horizontal holes?

I am with Faster, absent known issues I wouldn't be in a hurry to rip it apart. If you do have an issue then you obviously have to deal with it.

To fill a horizontle hole just tape up one side,...

Re: cruiser/racer

How much racing vs how much cruising? In this size and price range there are a huge number of boats that have been called racer/cruisers. Heck my uncles Tripp 40 was called a R/C but anyone who...

Re: Lashing lifelines

I ignored the minimums and use the largest size I could fit thru the lifeline grommets of my boat. I think it was 1/4" but it may have been 5/16 or 3/8. It is an intersting issue since the chaff...

Re: need help identifying a hobie type boat

The value really depends on the boat. If it's a Hobie 18 then its a little on the high side, if it's a F-18 then its a pretty good deal assuming everything is in good condition. But that broach float...

Re: high HP engine on a sailboat

There is no reason you couldn't install one. But it wouldn't get you much but a big fuel bill. You could get the same speed with a 4-10hp engine.

Re: Confession time...

Absolutely. Runners are probably the first standing rigging I would change to dyneema for a couple of reasons.

Other than on pretty radical racing boats without a backstay the runer is there for mast tuning not support. In an extreme case they may add to the survivabulity of the mast, but not...

Re: Mounting new, to me, winches...

Unless the sealant on the winch base is perfect, and if that's true then core rot should no longer be an issue either, yes corrosion is an issue.

As for G10 looking terrible... Paint it, it's...
