Re: Dock or Dry Dock I can't make up my mind

Before the season began I bought a 10' 10" Coastal PVC inflatable with aluminum floor. It weighs 99lbs. I've been very pleased so far, it has back splashes around the motor to keep back wash from...

Re: America's Cup opening races

I miss the 12 meters in Newport as well. However, the 12's were a bastardized version of the AC. The genesis of the AC was, I have a bad a**s boat come see if you can beat it.

Re: Using Bottom Paint on Brass Propeller

I've been using Trilux prop and drive spray, with limited success. By the end of the season it is pretty much all worn off. But now that I look at the label, it says for "aluminum" props. "Copper as...

Re: First time on the water today, I could use some advice!

My understanding is that coming about and gybing are both forms of tacking. I could very well be wrong (and it wouldn't be the first time), but that is what I was taught. Hence, the skipper should...

Re: Inflatable tender for 30' sailboat

The weight of the dinghy is the controlling factor. There can be a big difference between various dinghy's usually based on the type of floor and bottom. But I estimate my 90 lb dingy costs me less...

Re: Pearson 36

The 36 has a lot of similarities with my P-35. I actually like having the wheel at the front of the cockpit. It makes it easy to single hand as you have easy access to jib sheets and winches, and you...

Re: Bilge Paint in the Head?
