Re: How do I handle insurance claims?

I did not mean to imply a morality problem. I was pointing out a very real liability problem. This sort of thing is not at all clear cut. The other party's insurer may not see fault as so easily...

Re: How do I handle insurance claims?

Let's review: YOUR mast on YOUR boat fell and damaged YOUR boat, and in the process injured another person. You are uninsured, and yet you are sitting there expecting a big payout from someone...

Re: standing rigging replacement

You are in San Diego. There are several rigging shops there, and you could probably find one that you could coordinate the timing with your mast removal/yard time. You don't have to do it by mail. ...

Re: Raymarine speedo question

If you used bottom paint on the paddle wheel, you painted it with paint containing metal. The transducer won't read the signal from the paddle wheel. Assuming you can pull it from inside of the...

Re: what is this 21' trailer sailor?

As Ward H was saying, if the boat has a title it will say what it is. If it does not have a title don't spend another second even thinking about this boat.

Re: Standing Rigging tight enough?

A slack rig is far more damaging than a tight one. Movement and shock loading hurts, constant (proper) tension does not. For all the money people spend on boats, a Loos gauge is really not...

Re: How much rust is too much?

Re: What do you pay for Slip Fees??

Re: Mooring field woes in avalon harbor

Leave the bow line alone and tighten the stern mooring line, and adjust it as the tide changes. The stern line is smaller diameter and easier to deal with, and it just works better.

Yes, they did move the engine for the settee model. The atomic 4 version had it under the aft cushion of the dinette, right above the keel. I believe the reason the they moved it to under the...
