Re: Boston Area Recommendations?

I've got a long list of things to do - it runs to about two pages or so. At least I was able to repair some of the canvas over the winter - gave me something nautical to do.

NE riggers does a lot...

Re: Boston Area Recommendations?

I used North East Rigging to replace the standing rigging last year - they were very responsive and the price was reasonable. I think they're located in Concord.

Re: water based bottom paint

Thanks HR - I'm moored in Salem also. If it works for you, it should work for me too.

Omatako, you're right, it probably doesn't make that much of a difference in clean up, but I'd still prefer...

water based bottom paint

If the snow ever melts here in the northeast, I can finally get started on getting the boat ready. I've been using Interlux ACT as bottom paint for years and am wondering if I shouldn't switch to a...

Re: Greece: Dodecanese vs Ionian islands

Please let us know how it goes - sailing and your experience with the charter company - it's an area I'd like to explore in the near future.

Re: Greece: Dodecanese vs Ionian islands

We chartered from Kos in early July last summer - we had three boats for three families. The winds were quite strong, but the sailing was fun and spirited. Most of the time, winds were in the 18-30...

Re: My Windlass

Mine is definitely a Muir Hercules manual windlass.

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

When we still had our Precision 23, we trailered her up to Boothbay Harbor in Maine. Quickly rigged the mast. Everything went smoothly and I congratulated myself on a job well done, until we tried to...

Re: Sailboat Insurance

Cape, would you mind sharing the name of the insurance agency you are working with? I've been working with an agency for a few years, but they don't have a policy that covers consequential damage - a...

Re: I hate boats...

I'm happy the insurance decided to cover the full amount - they seem to be a decent company to do business with. Excellent news for MedSailor.

Re: Raw water anti-syphon valve

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the detailed description - that's very helpful. In my case, that panel has the engine instruments. I was hoping to avoid taking it out as it is caulked in place, but it looks...

Re: Raw water anti-syphon valve

Bill,

Thanks for the update and sorry the plan didn't work out. Did you find an easy way to get to the valve?

Thanks,
Joost

Re: Marine Surveyor Marion, MA

I used William Coble (cobleboatsurveys@cox.net) a couple of years ago when I got the PSC 34 in South Dartmouth. He's located in RI, I believe. He spent the entire day going through the boat and...

Re: Raw water anti-syphon valve

Fortunately the exhaust outlet is well above the waterline. I don't know about the elbow, but I suspect it is as well. If the anti-syphon valve fails, wouldn't it be possible to start a syphon with...

Re: Raw water anti-syphon valve

When I haul the boat for the winter, I usually tape up any exposed vents to prevent insects from getting in there. I feel for you, MedSailor, it's unfortunate that such a small insect caused so much...

I even removed the little door next to the companion way, but just barely managed to touch the valve. Not easily accessible, and I don't really want to remove the instrument panel on a...

Raw water anti-syphon valve

I've been following MedSailor's recent travails with his engine (see: I hate boats thread) and one of the things that came up that may have caused his engine to fail was a clogged anti-syphon vent....

Re: Look for new sailboat under 25 ft.

We had a Precision 23 until recently. It's a fun boat to sail and reasonably well built. We did a number of short cruises with it. At the end of the season, you can haul it out and trailer it.

Re: Precision Sails or North Direct.....

I ordered a main sail from them last year and am quite happy with how things turned out. The sail is well made and was delivered within the time frame we had discussed.
