Re: Tropical Storm Gonzalo... Ooops!

Good to hear.
Just heard from one of your neighbors that he and his wife also road out the storm in the lagoon thinking it was going to be much less severe. His name is Roger, tan ketch between...

Re: So where the heck do you shower???

Not practical? It is entirely practical. What it isn't is luxury. The smaller the boat, the fewer the luxuries and maintenance headaches.

If you can only shower on deck when in public, use a...

Re: Tropical Storm Gonzalo... Ooops!

We put her on the market about 12/2011 and sold her about 2/2013 with our mooring in French Saint Martin. She was a good boat with big sales, great speed and a lot of heel

Re: Tropical Storm Gonzalo... Ooops!

Wow! Awesome job keeping afloat and safe. I don't think you could have picked a much better mooring in the lagoon for that storm. Well done! All of our friends there have said the same about how...

Re: Won't Start after 4 hours of cruising.

Had a similar issue a while back. Fought it for months before we finally thoroughly checked the fuel tank vent hose. Ours was routed so as to allow overfilled or sloshed diesel to accumulate in a...

Re: Vagabond and Westwind Sailboats

So it turns out that Gypsy is sporting a Ford Lehman 220 Dagenham engine - not the 2712E we thought she had. You can tell by the shaft driven injector pump. So we've learned from the guys at Bomac...

Re: Holding Tank Woes

All I can say is Air head - really. Skip the tank and start composting - no float valve/switch/pump out required.

Re: Vagabond and Westwind Sailboats

There might be an easier way, but the way I do it is to upload the pix to an album in my User CP. Then I open the pix there and copy the BB code found below the pix and paste it into my post.

Re: Don't have to be rich to sail

We lived on a 42 foot boat on a mooring in the Caribbean for 2 years. It cost us less per month to live there including boat repairs than it cost to live on land in the US in a tiny one bedroom...

Re: Curse my impulsivity, I'm buying a boat! Taipan 28

Are you going to have it surveyed? I'm a leaky-teaky owner and those decks look like they have a lot of leak potential(screws and missing plugs). I'm not trying to be a dream buster. She is pretty...

Re: Anyone ever sold at a profit?

I am a resto-junkie, and yes, I have made a profit if you don't consider my time invested. But I didn't try to sell a boat until after the US economy went south. I do 95% of the work myself because...

Re: Vagabond and Westwind Sailboats

We are doomed to the dreaded itchy nightmare - ugh.
The deck on our boat feels very solid - even where we know the core is saturated. They did not scrimp when they built her deck. The forepeak has...

Re: Need help, rolling furling get stuck after unwinding 5 feet of sail

Might be a long shot, but have you checked your forestry/ back stay tension. I once fought a furler for months before it occurred to me (thanks to advice from a sailnet member) to tighten my back...
