Re: Fuel Tank

Do you PSC owners just love/need to spend thousands on everything? Why not use off the shelf tanks? Can the fit and build be that strange you can't use "standard"?

Re: Fuel Tank

I fail to understand why some feel the need to argue about points made on this forum. I am sorry if I offended sailors with fuel tanks made of plastic. I simply do not have the confidence to take a...

Re: Give AIS a rest

The video of the yacht being run down during the Cowes race is proof positive that sometime sailors can be damn idiots. Who in their right mind would have a race, where things can go wrong, in side...

Re: Rudder Post Access Hatch

Now I am really going to have to approach the rudder access hatch project seriously. I on a recent 150 mile trip that rudder packing is leaking into the bilge. If I cut this access, will I be able...
