Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

Over my years I have noticed the decline in craftsmanship. In fact it has become crapmanship too many times. When I do find highly skilled craftsmen (women) I see that they are well paid...

Re: Just set sail

Re: Completed 4th recent Cape May trip

Nice boat. Great trip, one I wanted to take when I lived there, but at 22 ft., thought better of it. Most I ever did was Toms River to Shady Side.

Re: Problem Turning Windward

Re: source of 12 volt instruction ?

Ditto also on Charlie Wing's book. In the army when we taught electronics, we started with Ohm's Law, as does Charlie. From there draw "block diagrams" of your system. From there you can draw your...

Re: Safe paint removal?

I once used a soy based paint stripper to take off bottom paint. It wasn't quite up to the challenge of many years of paint build up, but could easily handle your job. Google "soy paint remover" and...

Re: Music for sailing: what floats your boat?
