Thanks groggy. Our kid is actually getting used to sailing now but still we find that a small kid aboard basically takes one adult out of the crew count. So if I go with my wife and the kid, I am...

Sorry I don't really have towing experience. I do have a rigid dinghy though and no davits. So I considered towing and then I remembered how much water the dinghy took on when I first got it and had...

I wouldn't care if the electronics are out of date. If they are functioning, good enough. When something breaks, you can replace then.

I love the boat. New diesel and electrical are huge plusses....

Excellent post bl.

I don't think the windward/leeward rule has any relevance in overtaking situations. It is only important when two boats are close and side by side. The whole idea of the rule is that the leeward...

My impression is that the two part varnishes don't stand up to the UV any better than the quality traditional varnishes. When the time comes to redo, much harder to get the two parter off. So, I will...

Gulfstar 50 originally had a Perkins 4.154. Oil cooler he refers to is probably the heat exchanger, the end goal being oil cooling and all.

Same thing happened to me a few days ago. I didn't wait for current to die since the wind dies too around sunset. I was stuck in slough, not freshwater. While there was still some wind, I put an oar...

The interior pictures of that boat are deceiving. They are shot with a wide angle lens, exaggerating the size. It is a fairly common trick by boat brokers.

I don't single hand at all. I have never went out with a crew count of less than 3 but I want to start going out with just my wife. So having to single hand is becoming a concern.
