Re: RF Main pros and cons

Jon, your post got me thinking about a trip south.

The first rule of sailing is don't have a schedule, but if I decide to do a run down the ditch I'll only have so much time off work and I will...

Re: RF Main pros and cons

Umm, what, huh? :confused::confused::confused:

I sail on Barnegat Bay and the only time I see boats sailing on jib alone is when the wind is honking.

Re: Topside Paint Color - Flag Blue or White?

As for the fiberglass "curing" faster, well you made the engineer in me curious.

Gelcoat is basically a tinted polyester resin. It should be fully cured in 4-6 hours, which means it should have...

Re: Topside Paint Color - Flag Blue or White?

Minne, I understood your post. The difference in interior temps is something I always wondered about because I really love the way a dark hull looks. We're relocating to the Keys and our boat is now...

Re: Topside Paint Color - Flag Blue or White?

There have been so many different claims about dark hulls and how much hotter they are on Sailnet (and other sites).

I wonder, has anyone ever had two similar boats side by side (white & dark) and...

Re: catalina 22 swing keel

I definitely recommend joining the Catalina 22 National Association (catalina22.org (http://www.catalina22.org)).

Re: First time Owner

Congratulations on the new (to you) boat!

As for the drips on the keel, if the previous owner is still...

Re: Simrad WP32 / Garmin 400s GPS

Mark's right, the 440 is NMEA 0183 only.

Your post got me thinking and I went back and read through the WP32 manual. I always assumed I'd have to do a separate 0183 run from the WP32 junction box...

Re: Florida Keys, Best Anti-Fouling

Re: Florida Keys, Best Anti-Fouling

A local WM store manager swore their PCA was Micron CSC. Don't know if any Sailnetters know if that's true?

Andy how often do you have to clean the growth off your hull?

Re: Simrad WP32 / Garmin 400s GPS

According to Garmin tech reps I can interface the WP32 to my Garmin 441s so chances are you can connect your 400.
