Re: Improving visibility under headsail

I've never seen a jib window you could actually see through. The ones I've seen have either been yellowed or stained by salt spray. Even the clear ones distorted so much that the window didn't seem...

Re: How to launch a boat

They are trained professionals - don't try this at home!

Very cool.

Re: Freeboard? We don't need no stinking freeboard.

I've seen ships similar to that which take on water to lower the middle part below the surface to get floating cargo (like oil rig components) on-board. After that, the water is pumped out and the...

Re: Annapolis Sailboat Show

I believe the hotel with the Irish name is O'Callaghan Annapolis Hotel.

Re: Reducing bird mess

I bought a roll of bird scare tape and sewed it to the perimeter of a burgee. I fly the burgee just above the mast top. It's attached to a stick that I haul up on the halyard with a downhaul to...

Re: Mounting hardware on Boom

The threaded hole that secures my mast gate is the thing that causes me the most trouble. It seems to instantly seize and then strip the next time I need to remove the screw. I've re-tapped it...

Re: Mounting hardware on Boom

I've had generally bad luck tapping aluminum. In time, the screws seem to always tear out the threads. Instead, I've been using SS rivets. I'd be curious for any thoughts on this.

Re: Before putting parts back on, caulk? or..

Faster's tape suggestion is the way to go. It just makes clean up a whole lot easier. There's also bedding that comes in a tape form for easy application.

Re: should I be offended?

I can see how someone might ask that. Both have wooden coamings, pretty lines and nice overhangs. Both are very nice boats in my estimation, especially when well kept.

Re: Catalina sale fell through found Tanzer

The Tanzer is a great boat. To me they seem like terrific bargains considering the quality of their construction. As I recall, they came in a keel/centerboard configuration and deep keel models. If...

Re: Converting a Catboat to a sloop

I'd agree with those who say a boat is probably at it's best as it was originally designed, but the addition of a sprit and a jib on a catboat to make it point a little better is intriguing. Might be...

Re: Ethanol in gasoline questions

Let me preface this by saying that some of what I'm about to write is based on speculation.


I have an outboard that pre-dates ethanol gas. I started having problems in the last few years. Every...

Re: Teak substitutes. Why not?

I've seen handrails made from trex. They look great, but I can't picture it for coamings, though. Maybe too much surface area to expose the fact that it's not real. I really like the look of...

Re: Teak substitutes. Why not?

I don't think I'd want teak decks, but I sure would like to find something synthetic to replace my coamings, dropboards, trim and the like. Has anyone ever seen good looking synthetic teak in...

Re: Polar Vortex

I think if we're not a little nervous, something's wrong. I don't think that the ice can get too thick during the time that it will be cold. Hearing the wind is unsettling though. I'm hoping that...

Re: Wood this be a fast boat?

To me it looks like it would be fast in relative for it's length and weight, but who cares - you're going to look so good sailing it, it won't matter how fast you're going! Also, people are going to...

Re: Annapolis Sailboat Show Observations & Notes

I love boats with teak too, but where I used to see beauty I now only see work. I visited the J-95 (again) which seems to be the perfect boat for me. Wheel, inboard, huge cockpit, nice lines, light...

Re: How much wind is too much for you?

I read somewhere that a rule of thumb is approximately 1 knot of wind per foot of boat length. I've been out in my 24' boat in 24 kt winds and wouldn't have wanted to deal with much more. I've been...
