Re: New halyard: Sta-Set or Sta-Set X?

OK, I've done several sails with the new 5/16" VPC halyard, so I can make a few comments.

One of the first things that I noticed is how light the line is, especially when wet. I guess the...

Re: To the Contributing Posters on this Forum.

Very peaceful, I should think. :)

I remember reading an Arthur C. Clarke story years ago about a race of solar-sail-powered yachts -- "Sunjammer" is the title. Always thought that would be a...

Re: Gulf of Mexico video cruising reports

GOOD ONE! Went right over me. :) My spelling is SOOOOO BAD.

My very FIRST sailing took place in Galveston Tx. I remember that most of the water off of Tx. was brown and not so clear.

We wanted...

Re: How to build a holding tank

John: we faced the same issue when searching for water tanks for our Albin Ballad. The boat came with only ~14g of water tankage, and we are planning to sail where fresh water is hard to obtain. And...

Re: How to build a holding tank

I made a holding tank for my boat recently. I made it in two halves using female molds made from 3 mm melamine coated particle board hot glued together and with play-dough for the rounded edges. I...

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

It might be possible. I took a quick look on McMaster Carr and didn't see PVC pipe in the correct dimensions for the Jetboil pot, but maybe you could adapt something else.

Re: Island hopping between BVI and USVI?

We've been to St. John a number of times, picking up moorings in Caneel Bay (primarily to access Cruz Bay for Customs when coming back from the BVI), Hawksnest Bay, Leinster Bay--all along the north...

Re: Island hopping between BVI and USVI?

Agree with TakeFive. Much of the waterside of St. John--where you might go as a charterer--is much more laid back that a lot of the popular mooring fields in the BVI. Cruz Bay is where you MUST...

Pete Seeger died today

Pete Seeger died last night. He was 94 years old. I am sure all the older folks here know his music and activism, but he was an avid sailor as well. He was so disturbed by the pollution on the Hudson...

Re: Educated decision.

We bought a 35 year old Tartan 27' ten years ago for $4K - with working Atomic 4 (gas) engine in sail away condition. We negotiated the previous owner down from his asking price of near $7K.

Re: That's a pretty cheap boat heater!

Excellent job Dylan. Six pages in a single day discussing how hot a tealight burns and you aren't even the OP. Keep up the good work.
