Re: Cruising chute...keep or sell?

Thanks. I forgot to say, that I DO have an autopilot that mostly goes in the direction I want that should help when hoisting single handed. I already use it to raise/lower sail.

Is it hard to...

Re: Mystery water in bilge in CAL-29

Well, I wish I could report that I found the cause. I never did. It just stopped.

No wonder sailors are superstitious.

Re: Cruising chute...keep or sell?

Thanks, everyone! I have to admit, when I unfolded it in the yard I felt an urge to just try to use it. I think I'll do that.

Do I really just need a short painter for the tack, a spare...

Cruising chute...keep or sell?

My boat (CAL 29) came with a spinnaker of some kind. I usually sail single-handed and have just gotten around to pulling that sail out and unfolding it in the backyard to see what it is.

Re: Mystery water in bilge in CAL-29

Not yet. She's getting hauled for a bottom clean/paint this morning (previously planned) so we'll see if anything turns up upon inspection from that angle.

Re: Mystery water in bilge in CAL-29

Thanks everyone!

Tommays, appreciate all the hints! It's coming from forward, only the forward part of the bilge gets it. So it's not the rudder post (I have a wheel) or stern tube as they...

Still not sure where it's coming from. Got an inspection mirror and flash light and looked over the baffle into the forward bilge. Barely can fit the mirror/light.

There does seem to be an over-water discharge on the starboard side for the head sink drain that looks like it might benefit from some caulk around the edges. I'll do that...

Hey all,

Re: Need a San Diego diesel mechanic recommendation

Ended up using Craig Coleman as Poopdeckpappy recommended. He was flexible, prompt, courteous, reasonable and reasonably priced, and fixed my leaky fuel line problem.

I'll probably use him again.

Thanks, Poopdeckpappy. I'll give them a call.

Ya, I know the ball is a limiting factor. I'm happy to ferry and pay for those extra few minutes of time.
