Re: Boat features list

TQA's suggestion to list ESSENTIAL DESIRABLE CONTRA INDICATIONS is ideal but don't be scared to look at boats that aren't what you thought you wanted. I "needed" at least 100 gals of water, no...

Re: Sailing the Boat

Has anyone tried a garden sprayer to rinse out a (thick double) dog's coat? I'm wondering if a solar shower might work better for that even though it would use a bit more water.

Re: First Timer with bottom paint (VC17)

VC17 isn't hard to work with. It's very thin but goes on smoothly. I bought a little foam roller that came with a small paint tray. I kept a little in the paint tray and rested the lid on the can to...

Re: Galley Oven

As you said, it depends on your own personal use. The former owners of my boat spent about 5 months living aboard each year and used the oven to store bread. And they didn't have a BBQ. They did use...

Re: the Silliest question you've ever been asked?

This isn't so much silly as giving me hope for the next generation. I had an 8 year old girl out sailing this summer. Worried she and her little sister would be scared when the boat heeled over, I...

Re: Survey about Propane Burner/Oven Range

Mark, would you believe the "glass opening door thing" was a feature that had never been used (other than for bread storage) for my boat's the first 15 seasons? And the couple who owned it cruised...

Re: Review of my season on Georgian Bay
