Re: Malo 45' loses rudder, pulls an All is Lost

How many rudder bearings does the Malo have? Or for that matter, what is typical for a skeg hung rudder?

On my boat, there is a shoe at the bottom of the skeg that is bolted through the skeg,...

Re: Boats like S&S 34

Ilenart and JeffH have identified some of my favorites that are similar to the S&S 34. For what it is worth, the displacement numbers that are kicked around online for the S&S 34 have always been a...

Re: So, What about this idea?

I thought that was how most modern boats were already designed, just that they forgot to include the feature about sliding them back in!

Re: anodes for Yanmar saildrive AND Gori prop?

Re: GoPro - What do you think?

Once you familiarize yourself with the controls you don't spend a ton of time futzing about with it. If anything, I've found that I shoot too much video because it is so easy to carry the thing...

Re: GoPro - What do you think?

When I researched this, a lot of the negative reviews about the Hero 3 edition of the GoPro seem to have been resolved by a software update they released. I haven't had any problems.

Re: Violent attack, Cruisers injured, St Vincent & Grenadines, Union Island

Has there been any description of what happened leading up to the attack? To me, it is one thing to be confronted by a violent attacker who doesn't say "hand over the money" first but just starts...

Re: Yanmar Saildrive Corrosion

Ditto for me. If spending any time at marinas, I would install a galvanic isolator.

Re: GoPro - What do you think?

Re: Yanmar Saildrive Corrosion

Year 5 for me, also in Western Long Island Sound. I've done the epoxy coating twice, and each year it gets painted with bottom paint (Pettit Vivid). This is the first year I did not swap out the...

Re: Boston By Air

Stop the the Sevens on Charles Street for a pint while your there, but go during the early part of the week (to avoid the crowds). Supposedly an NBC exec wanted to make a TV show about it, and Jack,...

Re: Winter Storage Recommendations?

I've been here the last two winters and will be back for a third. Cheaper than Brewers (don't have to subsidize a pool, etc.). They were good enough to haul me just before Sandy hit (a week ahead...

Re: Planning a trip up the East River, Timing?

This is from a prior SailNet thread on this. I saved it for future use but can't vouch for it personally -- just expect I will use it in the future:

Re: Document or register my vessel?

Ugh. At least you didn't have to deal with this one: My boat was built in the UK in 1971. This was before boats had standardized HINs, so my hull number is a simple 4 digit number. This just blew...

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

This sounds like an awful experience.

I do have a few questions/observations.

First, I wonder what the basis for liability was, and how the insurance played into it. It would not surprise me...
