Re: Sailboat that can be beached???

We used to launch a Mirror dinghy from the beach all the time, sails lowered, centreboard in the slot ready to push down, rudder raised. Push out to about mid-thigh depth (if that), push off and...

Re: Newbie wind direction question

Regardless of the direction they state, the wind will always be coming directly from where you want to get to.

Re: Yanmar 1GM issues

Could also be knocking caused by bad timing, if you don't have a shop manual for the engine, let me know and I can email you a link.

Re: One Motor mount or all ?

I'd probably replace them all while I was at it, the bulk of these jobs is usually labour costs and I can't imagine it is significantly more to change all four over one. You'll only have to do the...

Re: Threadbare Gelcoat

It's the gelcoat worn away, mine has several spots like that, some previous owner must have had a very abrasive rear end. Only fix really is to repaint the deck, and I'll get around to that at some...

Re: Singlehanding Pedestal Steering

Poor man's Beneteau? More likely the bendytoe is the unthinking man's C&C ;)
Your boat is very stable and very forgiving, worry about reefing once you are into 15+kts true, you most certainly don't...

Ah, a MkV, in that case you need this one instead (http://www.cc27association.com/fixes/tuning-v.html)

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

I think the main problem with catamarans is that they are, almost without exception, ugly.
My wife would probably love one, she doesn't like heeling. The space would be nice. Their ability to go...

Re: Am I my Brothers Keeper?

If the guy wants it, sell it. His choice, all you can do is voice your opinion. No different to letting a new driver buy a Ferrari. What is it with the constant nannying in society these days?

Re: How do you rate your marina/mooring ?

I leave my harbour and I can see at least 8 islands almost immediately, I am in the southern Gulf Islands, so an excellent area, San Juans are a hop over the border away as well. Don't know the...

Re: How do you rate your marina/mooring ?

I pay $10/ft/mth to park a boat against a rickety finger (angles about 30 degrees to the water now), no power, that's extra. Location is good, very sheltered, facilities are good in terms of...

Re: intervention councelor(s) needed...

A wooden boat will last forever. But rather like the broom, it'll be 200 years old and you'd only had to replace all the deck twice, all the hull planks 3 times, the stringers twice, the mast three...

Good luck, and I hope you enjoy sanding, varnishing and painting whilst gazing longingly at those unfortunate souls in plastic boats that are actually out sailing :)

Re: Cinkel Steering Wheel Removal

If it's the same as mine, which I think is a Cinkel, then it's just a friction fit (1" straight shaft with a 1/4" keyway) and just held on with corrosion. I would see if you can borrow a puller,...

Re: Yanmar 2gmf stuck in reverse gear

Is the cable actually moving the shift lever on the back of the gearbox (or transmission if you prefer)?

Re: Gennaker downhaul on CS27

Gotcha, so I'd maybe just put a shackle through one of the holes in the furler fitting and get an amsteel strap that reaches just above the furler, and then have a block on the end of that. Then run...

Re: Delta Anchor won't set.

Given the discussions over the past couple of years, I'm surprised you ended up with any sort of delta anchor instead of one of the "new generation" types (rocna/manson supreme/mantus). Apparently...

Re: Drifter Sail

If it's really a drifter, it's a big (usually at least 150%, often as large as 180), lightweight genoa and can be rigged and flown in the same way. Pretty simple sail to use but likely to only be...
