Re: What to do what to do :)

Pacific Seacraft 31s have that open layout that would feel more spacious, but again that may be a pricier boat than what you were looking at, at least for one in nice shape.

Re: Derelict Catalina22 value? (bottom feeding content)

Don't pay for a derelict boat that's been sitting for a decade or more.

If you think you can get something useful out of it, offer to dispose of it for them, maybe even charge a small fee. It's...

Re: in mast furling issue

I've had similar issues on an in-mast C36, and it does seem to get worse as the sail ages and gets a little baggy. If you've got a loose furl and it's doubled over on itself inside the mast, that's...

Re: Pictures os sharks! It's Shark Week!

Do nurse sharks count? This one visited our boat daily at Warderick Wells. Reached down and touched her as she cruised by. But I didn't join her in the water. The nurse sharks at Staniel Cay are...

Re: Creepy sailing stories?

Heading south off the coast of Florida, we passed an inflatable dinghy floating out in the open ocean in the middle of the night. As we passed it was close enough to tell what it was (barely, with...

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Back in May we took my daughter and a friend out sailing for the first time. Perfect day.

Re: What's the *second* best way to keep spiders off your boat?

I always assumed it's a freshwater/saltwater thing. Ours is brackish but more fresh than salt, and we definitely get spiders. OP's location in Oriental is similar but probably a little more salty...

Re: Lazarette lid supports - spring or gas?

The gas struts are really nice on larger lockers/lids. They'd get in the way a little if it's a smaller opening. They'll probably need replacement every couple of years in a marine environment, but...

Re: Is anyone using a flow meter to know how much water they've used?

A Jeanneau 45 we had in our charter fleet had a flow meter with a display at the electrical panel. I assume it was factory installed but I never had occasion to investigate the unit itself. It seemed...

Re: Where should we retire with our boat?

Is this where we all expound on the virtues of our home waters?

I'll recommend North Carolina. Great protected cruising grounds with interesting towns to visit and countless quiet anchorages....
