Re: Windlass side loads

Hm...tried that, did not work very well possibly due to slippery rode, or the line and rode being about the same size?

Re: Windlass side loads

My rode is 120 ft chain then rope. When using rope, I can tie it off to one of the cleats but that would result in asymmetrical load to the bow, as mentioned before. Is there a better way?

Re: Urgent shaft seal question

Great suggestions, thanks everyone. I will definitely install the solid clamp for now regardless of what I decide to do. Good to hear there is some experience with similar temporary fixes.

Re: Urgent shaft seal question

It is not leaking anymore and will be ok until the scheduled haul if not used. I also tried to run in gear for a few minutes and it is still dry.

Re: Urgent shaft seal question

Unfortunately replacing it now is not an option since the winter haulout is less then 2 months away.

Urgent shaft seal question

My Volvo shaft seal has been leaking slightly under power and I was planning to replace it next winter. However apparently it was in the worse shape than I thought and today I when I came to the boat...

Re: Downwind Sailing

You are absolutely right. However on my boat I found that under 15 kts true it would probably take close to 40 degrees off course to achieve any real speed improvement over wing on wing. Above 15...

Re: Downwind Sailing

I have just completed a 70nm DDW run, and being new to the boat I was eager to experiment. I started with 10-15kts true and tried broad reaching and jibing for a few hours. I found that broad...

Re: Lake Ontario winter haul options

Correct, sq-ft calculation is LOA x beam.

Re: Lake Ontario winter haul options

My experience so far has been positive. I can report back after I launch in a month or so. The winter package cost last year was 2.80/sq ft. For some reason they considered my cradle "a little too...

Re: Lake Ontario winter haul options

Ship Shape yard in Port Weller is probably the cheapest in the west end of the lake. They have all you need. I decided to give them a try this winter.

med-mooring advise needed

I have just learned that my docking arrangement for this season will be med-mooring style with two lines attached to the pier and two “lazy lines” with permanent anchors attached to floating tires. ...

Re: cheapest mooring in gta

Alexandra Yacht Club also has mooring balls as far as I know. Good location but may also be waitlisted.

I purchased full insurance last year for my new boat and did not have to provide a survey.

I looked into getting liability-only last year and the quotes I was given were 90% of full coverage.

Re: cheapest mooring in gta

I like the place but it is quite expensive to join. I am thinking about staying in Port Credit for a while until I can get something in Oakville which would be ideal.

Re: cheapest mooring in gta

We have friends at Aquatic park - it is a PITA to get to on weekends. You cannot drive into the park so you have to bike (~3km) or take their cart which is once an hour and often full. Also the stink...

Re: How do you rate your marina/mooring ?

Up here a marina will run CDN$70-80/ft for the 6-month season, and most have ridiculous waiting lists. This will be my first season with the boat and I am still looking.

Re: Bottom paint advice needed

Thanks - this might be exactly what I am looking for if I decide to go that route. Wondering if all this scraping is safe for the original barrier coat?

You are right the old paint is still looking good...that and the fact that I hate sanding and dealing with dust are the reasons I am reluctant to do anything serious about it this year...

Bottom paint on the new to me Beneteau 361 is flaking in spots, probably because of too many layers, and I was wondering what should I do about it before the start of next season. The options are: do...

Re: Canada sales tax on registered boat

This makes sense, thank you. So basically file the new ownership and wait for notice in the mail. Is there any deadline for ownership transfer?

Re: Canada sales tax on registered boat

It is a US-built Beneteau the previous owner bought brand new in Canada. Nothing is being imported or exported, the question is about provincial sales tax aka HST.
