Re: That was fun!

I used an ATN tacker which clips around the furled Genoa. The tack line was shackled to the ATN tacker, then to a block attached to the bowsprit with the line led back to one of the bow cleats.

Re: I Equate it to Driving in a Bad Snow Storm!

Personally I'd rather be thought of as the wimpy guy that knows his boat and handles it in an appropriate manner for the current conditions. (Plus you'll be pointing higher and going faster than the...

Re: Replacing head on PSC 37

Once I got the Groco K apart is was obvious it needs more than a service kit. Cylinder is badly scored, rings shot, foot pedal shaft badly pitted. I could send it back to Groco for a rebuild but...

Re: Heating Your Boat
