Re: Rigging knives

I have no pictures, but I like a serrated knife for the boat. And I have a Wichard marlinspike, and also a 'Traditional' fid (the semi-hollow type)

I use a pair of kitchen shears (also serrated)...

Re: Rigging knives

A friend gave me this Wichard, after completing the Whitbread Round the World race (he, not I). One evening it was laying around the boat when the lights went off. Seeing it across the cabin I could...

Thanks for the links guys. This summer I've got to try that soft shackle.

Kyocera ceramic paring knife stays sharp even when you cut tons of dyneema with it.

Re: Genny sleeve

BTW, we made a snug-fitting cover similar to the ATN sleeve out of a microfiber polyester shower curtain and 28' continuous plastic zipper. Clip the spi halyard to the grommet at the top, start the...

Re: Genny sleeve

Your boat is what, 23'? On bigger boats, it's not quite that easy, or safe to "Drop it on deck and stuff it in a deck bag", especially in heavy weather conditions. My genoa weighs something over 200...

Re: Genny sleeve

Agree completely... Sunbrella is really a piss-poor choice for a UV cover for a furling jib, the lighter adn more abrasion-resistant dacron stuff is far superior, it's a mystery to me why so many...

Re: Genny sleeve

I doubt that the dacron UV shield that Doyle glued to our new 135% adds even a pound to the weight of the sail and it certainly has no effect on the general use of the sail. I'm not sure what the...

Re: Genny sleeve

I have a similar sleeve since we have roller furling and more than one sail without built in sun cover it made sense. It will protect the sail better than a sun screen against polluted air.

Re: Genny sleeve

The ATN sock has a drawstring to tighten it close to the sail. And no, it's easier to raise this sock than drop, flake and bag the jib, at least on my boat

Re: Genny sleeve

I guess my question is don't you still have to go out on the sprite to raise the sock? Isn't raising the sock more work than generally stuffing a sail into a bag? It seems like more work and yet...

Re: Genny sleeve

One other issue with these sleeves, esp in a typically windy area, is the flapping of the sleeve can chafe on and wear out the exposed side of the stitching of the sail. I've seen some sew elastic...

Re: Genny sleeve

I've used genoa sleeves on a set of sailing club Harbor 20s. The use of a sleeve adds about 15 minutes to the getting underway/closing up time and I considered this practice a real pain. These...

Re: Genny sleeve

I have one. It's okay, but it does whip some in high winds. It's easy to use. The video pretty much shows it.

If the winds blew harder here, and the sacrificial edge weren't so much an issue in...

Re: Installing dodger questions

This works very well and also helps keep water from running under the dodger in bad weather.
No matter what type of fastener you use monthly lubrication (I use Vaseline) will help the longevity.

Thanks, I'm hoping too! Your bottom looks good, nothing better than a boat with fresh paint!

Much of this will depend upon your chart plotter. Some may require an interface device, but in my case, everything is compatible so just one inexpensive cable is all that's required. You should be...
