roller furling vs hanked on headsails

I think furlers are the way to go, hands down. I have a cutter rig on my 65'', with both genoa and staysail on furlers. The staysail is self-tacking, so upwind work is just turn the wheel, no ropes...

Shortage of slips

S.F. Bay has plenty of marinas, some are full, others are not. There is ready vacancy in SF Bay for any size up to about 65'', costing $5.50-$6.50/foot/month.

sail type?

I doubt it''s straight Kevlar, as that would also be covered with a mylar film. Some years ago sailmakers experimented with a kevlar/dacron blend that was beige, but it would have been the same on...

Yanmar installation manual

You should be able to buy the manual from the same dealer that sold you the engine. If not, do a quick internet search for other Yanmar dealers. The manual will cost something like $75.

If you''re on a budget, I think the SSB is not necessary. The trip is short, along a coastline, and there are many places to stop in Vietnam if bad weather threatens. And besides buying the SSB, you...

Bosuns chair

I''m not a fan of the ATN type climbers, as they require a static line to climb, which limits how much you can move about. If you want to swing out to the spreader tips on both sides, you can''t with...

SF Bay - California Coast down to Central America

Your thinking is good, but it''s too soon to buy- you really don''t know what you want yet. Spend some time sailing as many different boats as you can, and you''ll learn a lot about what you like and...

ASA vs. US Sail

US Sailing is racing oriented, and is the authority on racing in the U.S. ASA is more cruising oriented, and is perhaps more aligned with the larger charter companies. Both have similar school...
