Re: Storing a hank on jib, realistic VS correct.

What you have now is exactly what you want... Stiff and crinkly is an indication that the sail is new and in good shape, the softer it is the more it has worked and the less shape it will hold. How...

Re: High speed ferry vs. race fleet

Actually in this case it sounds like the sailboats were in the wrong but it isn't definate.

The biggest question is if the sailboat race had recieved a permit from the USCG. Since they are...

Re: Graphene oxide: the best barrier coat?

Multihull,

Thanks for the catch. I initially read it as the chemical treatment only being impervious against acids/corrosives/ect. But on second reading I think you are correct and the chemical...

Re: Graphene oxide: the best barrier coat?

The article indicates that the graphene paint is water permeable, and graphene is highly conductive. I can't see the draw unless you want wet core and massive galvanic corrosion.

Re: Bigger is better & faster?

Bee,

Assuming things like SA/D and wetted surface are similar larger boats actually have an advantage in light air. Because of the longer waterline they operate in lower drag portions of their...

Re: Interlake or Flying Scot

I really like Lightnings and raced them one design for years. The issue I have with recommending them is that there are a lot of old wooden ones around and if you happen to snag one... Well they...

Re: Interlake or Flying Scot

They pretty much have to. The resolutions already passed require a new boat to be selected though the commodores still have to vote on which one. The vote on which boat is supposed to happen at the...

Re: Interlake or Flying Scot

Andrew,

There are a lot, probably hundreds of possible boats in this size and price range. Trying to hit that price point on a 18-20' boat is going to be somewhat location dependent since it...

Re: Interlake or Flying Scot

New or used, budget?


Frankly I wouldn't recommend either of these. I don't know anything about the interlake except that it is a 100 year old class (and thus ancient design), and the flying...

Re: sail plan curiosity

There is a pretty good argument that modern square headed mains are really gaff rigged not slooped.

The problem with Junk rigs is that they are substantially less efficient than a Bermuda. Not...

Re: cleats

There is no way to load up a halyard on a winch then take it off the winch and onto a cleat without loosing tension on it. If it was then there would be no need for the winch in the first place, and...

Re: Collecting Rain water

My preference is for a water tank to collect the rainwater, then run collected water thru a water maker. Those things not only clean out salt, but also bugs, bacteria, and almost all viruses.

Re: cleats

It is impossible to move a halyard to a jam cleat like this without effecting the tension on the line. You need something inline with the direction of pull. The only options are a cam or a clutch,...

Re: has anyone made a homemade catamaran and cross a ocean yet?

The real issue is people who think that building it themselves is a huge cost savings, and drastically under appreciate the amount of hours that go into building a boat. It's really sad, but the...

Re: Hull repaint Jeanneau 54DS

To do a decent job it takes special equipment, to do a terrible job probably not. At a minimum I would expect to see spray equipment and an controlled access shed.

Re: How does the marine industry price?

The price above what they paid is only part of the equation. You also need to know the entire COGS (cost of goods sold) which is much more complicated and varies between companies. West has huge...

Re: How does the marine industry price?

It isn't daylight viewable, it isn't waterproof (to any accepted standard), it can't tolerate condensation, it isn't tested to withstand vibration, and it doesn't have a warranty. I didn't bother to...

Re: How does the marine industry price?

One of the other issues in pricing marine parts is the very slow turnover. A grocery store for instance expects to sell everything on the shelves in much less time than WestMarine, which allows the...

Unless there was a hydrolic backstay that was cranked on way past safety limits I can't think of anything you could have done that would have resulted in this.

My first thought is... Remember...

Re: Portable Generator

There are plenty of other options that are cheaper, but nothing close to as good. I don't think any of them will allow you to run them while sailing, but at anchor should be fine.

Re: Advice on mooring setup...

I think the boat would be safer with just the anchor down and properly set and allowed to swing.
