Re: Rigging Replacement and StaLocks

I agree with all of the above, especially Hi-Mod as they make it much easier to know that the wires are correctly fitted inside the fitting through the use of a grooved compression ferrel. I have...

Re: A Dragon in the anchorage

Looks like someone forgot "form follows function" and really went for the clean look. Might work...on a car.

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Oh, and another thing. Get all this done before you turn 70, or atleast while you can still fold yourself into thirds.

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Hey, I thought you were supposed to pay the good stuff forward, not the bad stuff. Seems like if you are going out adventuring you would want to be scoring karma points, not spending them.

Re: Stainless Steel Quality

Stumble, thanks for your post. I was under the assumption that TIs fatigue threshold was like ALs, not like FE. I took that assumption from using TI bolts on bicycles, which I did more for anti...

Re: Stainless Steel Quality

Is it really this simple? I'm thinking that if you reduce the TI mass to the same yield strength as SS you have concentrated the load to a smaller working area and thereby reduced tensile strength...

Re: BBB or type 54 - what's the difference?

Well, there's the problem of getting 300 feet of chain onto the boat as opposed to just 100 feet. Seems to me the missing link is a reasonable approach for your application.

Re: Furling line death trap

Ok, so I don't have a "holy rail", but my starboard jib sheet and block along with the forward spring line lie right in the middle of the boarding gate. I tell everyone to step on the lines when...

Re: How to get back in after falling overboard solo...

I will add that not all men have the same upper body strength as some men. And very few men have the upper body strength at 70+ years as they had at 20, not to mention the weight distribution factor....

Re: Good Small Boat for Older, Fatter Woman to learn on

Wow, this is getting complicated, so let me add more useless yak to the discussion. Looking forward to that 35 foot cruiser, you will want a tender, one that can be towed or stored on deck. So maybe...

Re: How to get back in after falling overboard solo...

There is a YouTube video of a guy testing his ability to get back on his boat via a trailing rope ladder like affair. While he was successful there were some lessons learned.

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Re: How Old is Your Boat

Well, you see that other poll about what gear do you have? My boat has none of that stuff. Which lets me sail when I go sailing. Also reduces maintenance time, which is already more than I really...

Re: Cracked bow (pic), would you buy?
