Re: industrial/commercial PFDs

I've been paddling canoes and kayaks in whitewater all my life, and I still can't swim in a foam pfd with any kind of speed or efficiency. Especially not over a great distance. If I were to come off...

Re: San Juan 24

Update: the seller sent me a stack of pictures from the inside, and it looks very well maintained. Like, surprisingly well maintained (and I'm reasonably sure that they're just some pictures that his...

Re: C&C 25 MkII

Hmmm, it looks to me like it would be a lot harder to shift the C&C overland, is that fair to say? However, it also looks like it would be a much better boat to run up the outside with, once I get to...

Re: San Juan 24

So .... sounds like I should double check the hardware, the outboard and the deck core if I get a chance to see it, in addition to the usual persnicketiness. I've e-mailed the seller for pics of the...

I did not, in the end - my weekend looking-trip fell through. I haven't made it over yet, but I likely won't any more. TQA's warning about engines put me off (they're my weakest maintenance point, so...

Ericson 35' on BoatAngel

Alright, here's a conundrum. A friend of mine likes to putter around a site called BoatAngel. It's one of those charities that people donate boats to, and they sell for a profit. I've never been...

singlehanding without cockpit routed lines

Can it be done? Is it wise?

I'm looking at a few boats, and one of the best options doesn't have much running back to the cockpit. It's got a wheel pilot, and is not too huge (Cal 2-29), but...
