Re: Wood work, bottom paint, keel bolts on Pearson 26

Oh-also, stripping/scrapping didn't work so well on the kell that has a lot of bumps and is not flat enough. I found a sandblaster for rent and it looks like it would be perfect for the cast iron....

Original Roller Furler on 1977 Pearson 26

The original roller furler that came with my Pearson 26 looks old but nothing like it can't be fixed or part replaced. However I can't find the make of the system (labels have peels off and I don't...

Re: Old Tanzer 22 for ocean sailing ?

Thank you for the advice and links ! These tanzer22 do look akward and the deck seems closer from the water than other boats this size (they "sit low in the water" ?): do the cockpit get waves more...

Re: Repair of broken hull around keel stub
