Re: Help with South Coast 22

Concentrate on just getting the boat functional. Don't start ripping stuff apart until next year. :)

Re: Sailing Magazines

Jon - I have to admit I haven't seen Sail magazine in a while. Stopped getting that one b/c it wasn't directed toward sailors like me. I get Cruising World for the reasons you mentioned in this...

Re: Sailing Magazines

GOB's tag line is, "The sailing magazine for the rest of us". That is really true. Their focus is on classic plastic. For me, it is a bonus that they are based in the US Midwest, so, tend to see...

Re: Longest freshwater route

Wow. That was an awesome trip. Absolutely BFS if you would have sailed through the locks! I was having engine trouble, while sitting on my pin, before taking the boat up the river to get hauled...

Re: Guidance with Laser2 Purchase -Please help!-

If you are by yourself, you will need to tend to both the main and jib. How relaxing or exciting the ride is will depend a lot on the weather. Be happy with what the day brings. Agree with Bob,...

Re: VC 17 or SR 21

Like Fstbttms said:



I'm far from an expert on bottom paint, but, usually you can put any ablative on top of another. You can only put VC17 over an epoxy primer (that is on a bare hull), or...

Re: Longest freshwater route

This was more of a thought experiment. I was looking to see how far I could go in one continuous passage. Actually, this came to mind b/c I was trying to figure out how fast I could get a boat out...

Re: Tornados/Severe Weather (Inland Lake)

Isn't there some website that can host a text document, like Photobucket does for pictures? I'm not thinking of it right now.

Re: Sailing definitions

Don't get too caught up in symantics. These are just descriptions of how seaworthy you and your boat need to be. The scale would go like this: Small lake sailing, big lake sailing, short coastal...

Re: VC 17 or SR 21

I would keep it simple, and stick with the ablative paint that is most likely already on the bottom. If it is in really bad shape, you need to scrape and sand. However, you don't really need to get...

Re: Mast Paint

Todd -

I don't see the photo on my end. Try inserting an IMG thing from photobucket.

Edit: I see image, now that I am at home computer.

Re: epoxy question

Wow. That's a long time. It would take me forever to get all the fillets right on my dinghy build. That would have been useful to have some that sets off fast, and some slooow. OTOH, Abuse, you...

Re: I hate boats...

That picture always makes me vomit just a little in my mouth. No offense to owners of that hybrid, or the stink-potters from whence it was birthed. Just doesn't fit my world view. :)

Longest freshwater route

Sometimes I wish I could hop on the boat and sail off and not turn around. Sailing on a lake, there are limitations. So, I wondered, 'how far could one go non-stop, without just going in circles,...

Centrifigal fuel water separator

In another thread someone was talking about filtering fuel before it gets into the tank. Made me wonder if there was a DIY way of separating fuel from water quickly before it goes into the tank. ...

Re: Engine Size

Your Rob Legg 24 is a really light boat. I think the manufacturer said 4-10hp. I would think anything in that range that you come across for a good price would be fine. Will help you finding a...

Re: Collision course procedure?

Sailingfool - You can probably control your boat much better than the average sailor. Wondering if it would be a good idea for most to stay out of irons, in order to keep better control?

Re: Looking for boat suggestions...

Actually, if price where no object, you could have Mr. Perry design a boat that you describe. I assume you mean that you don't need to limit yourself to the cheapest productions boats?

Re: Interlux Perfection Paint Problems

OK, most are going to think this is nuts, but, you could change over to the one part Interlux Brightsides. I wouldn't do this unless you are doing white b/c you will get some brush marks. It won't...

Re: Why are hull/deck joints built the way they are?

I think if I had a plan to take my Bristol 27 off shore I would glass over the joint like Andrew here: Bristol27.com Ľ Hull to Deck Joint (http://www.bristol27.com/projects/hull-to-deck-joint)

Re: New main sail

Consider this: My boat has a thick, cut-away full keel, sheeted outside the shrouds. I'm guessing that even with kevlar racing sails I will not point great. Therefore, there may be less to gain...

Re: Heaving to while reefed?

Is there anything to the theory that staying is the slick, by not having forward movement, will prevent waves breaking? ie, if you are moving forward you will be sailing into disturbed waters.

Why are hull/deck joints built the way they are?

I have noticed a few threads about perminently curing hull/deck leaks by either bonding the parts together, or glassing over the joint. Why are the joints not built this way from the start? Is it...

Re: Hull deck reassurance

This discussion begs the question, 'why isn't the joint put together in such a way that all this is not required'?

I think I will post a separate thread for this.
