Re: Quieting a dinghy at anchor

This is a good point. For the record, I was experimenting to see if getting some distance would reduce the sound. I wouldn't have left it like that ... Although if it helped I might have been tempted!

I've got hard, fiberglass, nesting dinghy, no motor. It rows beautifully, is quite light, and is rather handsome. I bought it used, it was home made. I love this dinghy except for ...

Re: Ultimate Sole, alternative

Same here. Ultimate Sole is holding up well, but I'll need something in 1 or 2 years I'd guess.

Re: Head hose: How long does it take to permeate

agreed. With a new tank I'll be able to address the discharge and the vent issue.

Still I had hoped that new hoses would have bought me a bit longer than a few months.

Re: Head hose: How long does it take to permeate

Yes vent hose included.

You bring a good point. My vent is truly one sh*ty arrangement. in my original post I said that all hoses pass through the cabinet, but I forgot about the vent. It's...

Re: high wind gybing technique??

I'll add that if I'm singlehanded or with inexperienced crew, I will furl the jib first. This allows me to focus on the main, namely letting the main out and set as soon as I've jibed.

Re: Jacklines - where to run them?

I didn't explain very well, but I am definitely open to better ideas. I've gone back and forth a few times on my boat; this is my current iteration.

Re: My tri anchor light went out. I did something

The diagram shows a fuse in the switch. And as you say, the circuit it is on ("Lights"?) has a fuse as well.



Do verify that. I'm not suggesting that they were improperly wired, but corrosion...

But it is true that a stuffed sail takes up *a lot* more of storage space than folded. and...
