Re: Elevator method of COB recovery mixed results

Here's is a method that can work in a pinch. Tie a loop in the end of a jibsheet or any piece of rope. Like a stirrup. Drop that in the water and wrap the other end around a winch. Person in the...

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

I was in Urbana a week ago. Just a heads up, it's maybe impossible to get diesel and ice there. I couldn't believe the marinas didn't have either. If you need such supplies, better to try Carter...

Re: Vented loop vent confusion/waste system sanity check

Glad if I could help. We have a 30 foot Pearson and the composter fit easily.

There are at least four of these units on boats at our dock and none of the owners are ever fixing them. There are...

Re: Vented loop vent confusion/waste system sanity check

Get an airhead. 1,000 dollars and a one hour install and you are on your way. Get rid of the thruhulls.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

Just thought I'd share what we saw this past Sunday evening at the mouth of the St. Mary's River.

We will spend the fourth anchored in the bend at St. Mary's College enjoying the concert and...

racing at st mary's

Anyone have any knowledge as to how the college nationals at St. Mary's College will impact anchoring in the bend this weekend? I expect it might be crowded but hope it's not closed to anchoring. I...

Re: USCG Documentation Fee Question

Call them up and ask. They offer very good customer service.

The bright side is you only have to pay once. Unless things change.

Re: Kenyon Alcohol Stove Maintenance

I used a pressure stove for about a year and sort of enjoyed the whole zen of cooking on it. I would never turn my back on it. I would not even leave it long enough to take a leak.

The first time...

Re: Chesapeake Bay Eats

Anyone in the Smith Creek area of the Potomac should try Cali's on Jutland Creek. It's at the campground less than a mile up the creek where it joins Smith Creek. They have short hours, I think...

Re: Display Coast Guard Registration Numbers

I think inside a cockpit locker is a great location. It is technically the inside structure of the hull and, if painted on, is not easily removed. You could probably even put it on the underside of...

Nettle Net

Summer is coming. Last year was hot on the east coast. It drives me nuts that you can't go in the water because of the sea nettles. What kind of experiences have people had with the jellyfish...

Re: Operating a boat in another state?

I wouldn't advise it. I drive 6.5 hours to my boat and it is doable for me but that is because I am retired. I held off buying a boat until I was retired because I felt it would be really hard to...

Our store holds a military appreciation weekend about once each quarter with many items selling at or near wholesale. Available to vets and active duty. I thinks that 's pretty cool.

Re: 2013/2014 Maintenance Season

Re: hull and deck no core?

Just curious. How did the o.p. confirm that his boat has solid decks?

What is the likelihood that my 1966 Pearson Wanderer (hull #5) has solid glass decks?

Re: STUFF to seal leak at mast step

Thanks for the input. I like the idea of a boot but the shape of the mast step presents a problem. You can't see it in the photo but the step is really a rectangle shape with about 24 inches on the...
