Re: Dumbest passage plan since the BOUNTY sailed straight into Sandy?

Ridiculous idea on this trip. A N/M 43 in good condition was at best poorly suited for the trip. This boat wasn't in good condition and not properly equipped.

Engine- needed to be thoroughly...

Re: increasing and consolidating standing rigging size

Here are a couple of other considerations. What are pin sizes of your clevis pins? My guess is 3/8". 1/4" is usually 7/16" or 1/2". Doubt if your chain plates would take 1/2". My experience with 2...

Re: Need delivery crew and captain Chesapeak bay to Ft Lauderdale FL March or April

Uh, that would be on the outside for a J120 because of draft issues in the ICW. That time frame is too early. Weather systems are a bit unstable at that time of the year. You can still get a...

Re: masthead sheaves

I have a similar vintage 29-II. VPC halyards have worked well for me with the original sheaves. 10MM VPC which is on sale is what I would recommend for the jib and main halyards. 3/8" Sta Set for...

Re: VC 17 or SR 21

Chemically they are both the same. Pettit uses a better anti-slime additive in their formula. I have used both interchangeably for years. No compatibility problems at all.

Use 90% isopropyl...

Re: Another boat lost in Atlantic

I have been offshore in the north atlantic in early April. It can easily be a washing machine with 25 foot steep, confused and short duration waves. We were in a boat (55 foot aluminum pilot house)...

Re: How much paint will I need to do the bottom of a 30 footer

The obvious confusion by the some of the posters is that they are not familiar with VC 17. It is not the same a traditional bottom paint. It has the viscosity of water and goes a long way. Quite the...

Re: How much paint will I need to do the bottom of a 30 footer

VC-17 is a different animal. 2 qts is all that you need if you apply it right. 1st you need a solvent. Interlux has one called VC thinner which is relatively expensive. The rest of us use 95%...

Re: Pic of 1 year old aluminum anode

I use a magnesium anode. Maybe it isn't working that great. I'm changing it this spring anyway. My stainless prop shaft and bronze Martec prop aren't showing signs of corrosion. At the last marina...

Re: Pic of 1 year old aluminum anode

It seems to me that is a lot of corrosion. Your boat is in Sandusky Bay. So is mine but my anode doesn't look that bad after 4 years in another marina in Sandusky. I'm wondering if there might be a...

Re: Port Huron, or even Chicago to Mackinaw race. Newbie looking for advice.

Being on Lake St. Clair helps a lot. Cuts a little of the cost down and 1 day out of the transport. I guess about 8-10 hours to motor up to Port Huron and about 6 hours to motor back.

Go to the...

Re: Port Huron, or even Chicago to Mackinaw race. Newbie looking for advice.

AX- It is all about logistics and equipment. I did the PH Mac in 2010 with my 29 footer. This year they changed the safety rules of the PH Mac and it became a lot cheaper because you do not need a...

Wow, exceedingly high. You can do it yourself with a foam roller. Wash bottom with water and soap. Let dry. Roll on VC 17 with foam roller from West Systems. Use 90% Isopropyl alcohol as an...

Re: The Loss of The Alpha 42 "Be Good Too"

Back to the Alpha thread. I, for one, think they did the right thing to get off the boat. They had bad weather coming and a crippled boat. The waves in that part of the Atlantic are brutal. I...
