Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

Well said, but go back and read his complete statement. His recommendation of a house boat with a small sail boat moored astern is a really good idea from several aspects. If you had something like a...

Re: North's ONE continuous q&a thread.

If the "hissing" sound is in fact a sucking sound then that is your most likely problem. So locate the air leak and if it is on any component of the fuel line - tank connector, bulb connector, bulb,...

Re: New Site - Sailcraftdata

I would think that the main reasons for a new online database on sailboat data
Would be more accuracy and additional information than existing databases.

Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

Sherwood,
Over my years I have noticed the decline in craftsmanship. In fact it has become crapmanship too many times. When I do find highly skilled craftsmen (women) I see that they are well paid...

Re: Catalina or Hunter?

I believe these are called "First World Problems". Funny that many of us want a sailboat to get some respite from such problems. I wonder how that works.

Re: Electronic Ignition

The Ignitor model available from Moyer Marine replaces the points and condenser retaining only the rotor and distributor body. Also, the spark cable set they sell are well shielded. All in all it...

Re: Marina Electrical Problems

As above, if the circuit breakers are not tripping and you are getting fires and charred connectors, it is not a amperage problem, but a resistance problem. I can't imagine a marina not addressing...

Re: Sleeping Accommodations --- is there a thread?

Somewhere buried in the Pearson 28 yahoo group are descriptions of a conversion of the settee into an athwart ship double berth with two side exits, one to the head and one to the companionway.

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

I agree. My respect for Hereshoff really dropped with his "frozen snot" comment. Such attitudes imply no advancement is needed. While many of the old boats are beautiful combinations of strength and...

Re: Help me figure out what kind of boat I want.

Congratulations. Cape Dorys are classics and should take you where ever you want to go. Have fun fitting it out. The stove deal might be a blessing in disguise. Now you can pick what you want and...

Re: Sorry, you are about to get slammed. First question: bowsprit

There was a boat in our marina that had a bowsprit like the one you show, a Pearson of the Alberg vintage I believe. Anyway, he had fittings on the sprit to hold two anchors, a spade that hung under...

Amen to this. You should take this as your mantra. You have already experienced results from professional repairs shoddily done. Working with the school could be a source of good mentoring, but do...

Re: Is the Newport 27' a suitable liveaboard for a small family?

Well, I'm sitting, actually reclining without shoes drinking a glass, well maybe more than a glass of wine. Is wine more acceptable than beer?
