Re: One Ship Stupid

I would tend to agree. However, everyone has a different continuum of what poor seamanship is. There are often trade-offs to doing things one way or another. Often the observer is not aware of the...

Thawing frozen engine

This cold snap has caught me with my Atomic 4 pants down. Couldn't get out to the boat to winterize b/f the water froze in muffler. Is there any safe way to heat the engine compartment while I am...

Re: Guidance with Laser2 Purchase -Please help!-

If you are by yourself, you will need to tend to both the main and jib. How relaxing or exciting the ride is will depend a lot on the weather. Be happy with what the day brings. Agree with Bob,...

Re: Mistral 16 pocket cruiser

The anchor hanging from the pulpit may also throw the balance of a little. When you anchor, you could just lower it from the cockpit.

Re: Safe paint removal?

I'm guessing it will be hard to get all of that off without damaging the gelcoat a little. You will need to patch those holes, too. It would be a bit difficult to match the gelcoat color...

Re: Google Alerts for boat search

Thanks Titus, I was not aware of that feature. In addition to your advice, I would add that if you want to find something on Sailnet you can limit your search to this web site like this:

Re: What percentage of boats are sold for competition vs sport?

I would imagine there are a large number of people who intend to race a little (local races usually held every week), and go cruising on the weekend. Oh, the exact percentage... 66.7%. Just...

re: Maiden Voyage Newbie Trainwreck

Take an experienced friend along next time. If that isn't possible, then go out on a dead calm morning, and practice motoring. Return to the slip a bunch of times. Enjoy your new ride, and...

Re: Confronting Fear

Ron - I share your apprehension about sailing at night (my wife even more so).

I think what worries me is dealing with bad conditions at night. I would assume that those who enjoy sailing at...

Re: Books on the sailboat - a good idea?

I don't need books... the voices in my head are entertaining enough.

Re: Thinking about a new project

Other than some sturctural killers, look out for stuff that will suck up your budget: replacing sails, motors, rigging (running and standing), personal gear (pfd, etc), operating expenses (launch...

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

I don't remember the site, however, I recall seeing a genoa off of Pyewacket (an 86' maxi sled) for sale for something like $1500. I would imagine that could be recut into a bunch of sails for a...

Re: "Paying" friends wanting to go on the boat.

What about doing some lessons? I did a 'Family and Friends' ASA lesson. This included a couple of days on the boat. The owner kept his boat in very good shape. The money he made from lessons...

Re: Clean/Polish Painted Hull before Applying Graphics?

Should just be smooth, clean, and dry. I'm putting my boat name on tomorrow morning. I think the instructions said to spray with window cleaner and dry.

Re: Towing a Capri 16 with a Subaru outback?

Yah, but the 16 weight something like 4 times as much as the 16.5.

I wouldn't worry about trailer brakes... just ask your passengers to wear helmets. :)

Re: Towing a Capri 16 with a Subaru outback?

I think the tow capacity is 2000 lbs, so, with nothing in the boat you should do OK. Auto transmission will be better than manual. AWD will help on slippery ramps.

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

The cheapest way would be to not paint it at all. There is probably some left over from last season. Will probably get a good growth of whatever grows in your lake. Pressure wash and scrape it all...

Re: Forestay Tack Position

I don't think the hole you use will impact performance much. You can adjust mast rake (which does impact performance a lot) by adjusting the forestay toggle. I think most people put the forestay in...
