Re: HELP! Mystery leak is flooding my boat!

My guess is the 'hand rails'. Mine leaked, put a 'boom tent' up till I can reseal. Throw a tarp over the boom and just start wetting down one place at a time. My, 02. Dave.

Question Mast track

Have a friend with a 27ft mk1, who is having a problem with his sail 'slugs' coming out of the track when he drops the main. Is this 'normal' on a mk1, for the slug opening to be more that a couple...

Smile Re: smoke filling up the cabin

Denise 030, it's a male thing, have to see what she'll do thing, ha, ha. Nothing like a 4knot hull speed, being 'passed' by a 10knot hull speed, just can't let it go. LOL.

Unhappy Deck stains

What do you use to remove stains on your deck from mold/algae? We tried boat soap/deck cleaner, scrubbed with a hard brush, but it just doesn't want to come clean. It is on a 'non skid' deck. Should...

Re: Any ideas on this Hooka type dive compressor system?
