I use it to clean up residual adhesives from decals and foam tapes. It will soften glues but it doesn't really remove them without a lot of elbow grease. Have you tried careful application of a...

I saw the review and think it looks pretty good. I like spartan and clean. When was the last time Sail Magazine reviewed anything under 30 feet and less than 3-400,000 dollars.

3/16" is a bit on the thin side. It'll will likely have a good bit of distortion if it's not in a frame. I wouldn't go below 1/4". I just replaced my 5/16" (8mm) acrylic with 1/4" and it was ok...

I'm pretty sure that's the same hull as a C&C 30. If that's the case, isn't that a keel stepped mast and goes through the deck? It shouldn't go anywhere with one of the shrouds off.

I had a 1975 C&C 30. My understanding is that the Lancer is a C&C hull. My boat had the shoal keel 4'-2" deep. I liked the boat. Yes it had a lot of weather helm in 15-20 knots of wind. Yes it...
