Re: Deck hardware: OK to attach with screws only?

Through bolting is the only way to properly do this. As others have said a screw will rip right of of the deck. What I would do is to purchase some fiberglass tubing or rod (McMaster sells this...

Re: What is the most idiotic mistake you have made on a boat?

Man, I've been doing this for over 30 years. I don't think I can come up with just 1. Maybe the top 100 if we had enough time...

Re: Catalina wing keel or fin keel?

I don't want to raise a red flag if it's not deserved but does the rudder on the wing keel Catalinas extend deeper than the keel? I recall a friend of mine grounding his C28 and bending the rudder...

Re: " All Is Lost" movie

Saw it the other day and my read is that as a sailing movie it leaves a lot on the table but as a movie about a man against the ropes it was very moving. I was surprised by the ending (not spoiling...

Re: " All Is Lost" movie

The biggest mistake I see is that they must have only made three copies of if. The closest location I found to me (here in St. Louis, MO) is Chicago!

Hi and welcome aboard.

Okay, seriously this time. I don't know how much experience you have but I'm guessing you've never gone up a mast before. If not you need to make sure you are working with someone who has. Get a good...
