Re: 218 yr old USS Constitution is getting a refit

Last time I was in Boston, sometime in the nineties I think, she was stripped down for a major overhaul. Some of the original solid timbers were being replaced with laminated beams. Seems they...

Re: Cruising Gear

You are correct, of course. In fact, too little wind is far more common than too much wind at sea and if the wind pipes up and you have sea room you can always just take everything down and wait. A...

Re: Cruising Gear

Apparently, some people think refrigeration is more important than storm sails.

Amusing. :cool:

Re: Best book to have for coastal sailing.

US Coast Pilot is the one reference that contains all of the essential information you need, in addition to charts, of course. I think you will need volumes 4 and 5 to cover that area.

re: Boom Vang and Preventers (renamed)

Same situation on a Vega with roller reefing main. You need to run a vang/preventer from the end of the boom sailing off the wind. It can be a little awkward, but you do need it.

Re: My 128th good film - and the future of sailing journalism
