Re: Flying Scot - did I buy the wrong boat?

Jordan,

I was assuming new boat prices. Obviously things change substantially when you start with a budget, particularly when the budget requires you to buy local.

Re: Progressive Insurance Claim question

Estimates indicate that the entire legal system for auto accidents costs $10-15 billion a year. Of which $4 billion is spend just on drunk driver accidents.

This sounds pretty high, but compare...

Re: Sailboat cost spread sheet

Hey Jordan,

Stumble sort of survived Katrina. We sold it to someone from Laffayette for $1,000 after the storm. The boat was heavily damaged in the storm, and I figured it was better to get what...

Re: Question regarding purchase contract

Well,

It is primarily an incentive not to sue unless you are pretty sure you can win. If anything it would decrease the likelihood of suing so I am not sure your specific concern is warranted. But...

Re: Sailboat cost spread sheet

You added in the engine which is good, and the sails, which is necessary. But don't forget the standing rigging, running rigging, regular polishing (slows down painting), re painting, electronics,...

Re: Ceramic knife review

For kitchen knives I am a huge fan of Shun. The three I have are easily my favorite knives. The Hinkle's are now relegated to the back of a drawer.

Angry Re: Ceramic knife review

I follow the directions from Phil (the guy who makes the knife). I am quoting below.

YES it is much more difficult to sharpen ceramic blades due both to the extreme hardness...

Head to Zephyr Works. Zephyrwerks - The Sheave Factory (http://www.zephyrwerks.com) They are pretty much the go to for replacement sheaves for every rigger I know.

Re: PHRF Ratings

It could be as simple as one of them is rated with a feathering prop the other with a fixed. I am taking a 12 second hit for a feathering prop and still think it's worth more. Or a penalty pole, or a...

Re: Fatigue crack fix

The only solution is to pull the boat, cut away the damaged portion of hull, bevel out the edges, then relay the entire section. Adding a single layer of glass is at best a cosmetic fix it won't...

Re: Should I dump my fuel?

My vote would be to shock it and then have it commercially polished. Or build your own polishing rig.

It won't be perfect, but if you can get it good enough to get ahead of the problem you can...

Re: Tesla's new power cell for houses

These are supposed to be 10kw for $3,000. A deep cycle lead acid around here is going for about $100/kw ($120 for a 100amp*12v battery). But it will come in at about half the weight, and charge much...

Re: Suggestions for a first boat

I would suggest taking a look at the Topper line. They are roto-molded and thus much cheaper. A lot smaller than what has been mentioned, but $3-4k will get you into a 2-3 year old boat in good...

Re: 1/4" line in a 3/8" rope clutch?

If you are worried about releasing under load take a look at the spinlock PXR cams. They are generally easier to release than a typical one. Or their mini jammer which is good down to 1/4".

Re: Stainless Steel Quality

Casey,

I don't see an issue. But again I am an attorney not an engineer. I would really suggest getting someone qualified to comment. But I don't think these bolts spin, or at least they...

Re: is VHF STILL the only way to contact bridges?

Try Googleing the name of the bridge. Many of them have listed phone numbers as well. But at least the ones around here prefer to be contacted by VHF.

For 1/4" why not just use cam cleats?

Re: Chain Plates

Any corrosion would be negligible at the worst at least as between the titanium and stainless. Between the stainless and aluminium you might get some. But I think they are sleeved with a...

Re: Stainless Steel Quality

The critical temprature for 316L above which pitting corrosion is around 65F. above this pitting is a very real possibility. The threshold temprature for crevice corrosion however is about 40F....

2) the lack of micro-valleys means that inter granular and crevice corrosion...

Re: Stainless Steel Quality

Bob is very much correct.

G5 Ti has a yield strength of ~128kpsi and a tensile strength of around ~138kpsi. So if you apply a force high enough to force it to yield you are also very close to...

Re: Stainless Steel Quality

Reducing mass doesn't effect a parts strength. I think you are mixing up mass and volume or cross sectional area. Just as an example, let's take a 1"X1"x20" solid stainless extrusion. So it has a...
