Re: Selling my boat -am I crazy?

So it comes without the slip? If the boat is in reasonably good condition, I think you should hold out for more $. I spent all winter traveling and looking at boats, prices vary by SEASON, if you...

Re: main halyard noise.

Stumble, the problem is when I am under way on a port tack. I can fix it easily at the mooring.

Re: main halyard noise.

Faster, thanks good advice. I will try both "loading the halyard" more and will also try to jam something up there at the mooring.

Re: main halyard noise.

T34c, it definitely is the main halyard. However I just was thinking that I am about to put a brand new mainsail on the boat and maybe, just maybe this noise problem will
dissappear!

Just bought a Pearson 303, which I am happy with BUT the main halyard on a port tack is banging off the mast creating a very annoying and loud noise. I have tried to use a bungee cord but really did...

Re: Interesting Video

Wow I am impressed by how calm he stayed. Also he knew what to do, throw out the anchor and call for help. I would hope that I could be this calm in this kind of situation!

Re: almost inaccessable seacock

I was hoping someone with a 303 might respond as they have the same problem, but so far I think Chuck53 has the best idea of making an access panel. Captain Force, I had to unseize this seacock by a...

Re: Epoxy on the prop?

Thanks all. It is a max prop...so replacing it is very expensive. There are some corroded areas, they don't look too bad. Perhaps the Petit zinc barnacle paint is a good reccomendation. Or should I...

Just bought a nice Pearson 303 and the surveyor has said there is a little corrosion on the prop. He has suggested that I may want to "Epoxy it". What is that? A two part solution? Do I just paint it...

Re: Pearson 30? Good buys! Any others

I would vouch for the Pearson 30 all day long. I bought a 1972 last year, that had a yanmar diesel in it and that boat made me fall in love with her. Fast, maneuverable, nimble, fast in light air,...
