Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

I don't think Captain Obnoxo will be seen in any legit racing programs any time soon, as he would soon find out that his $200 EBay bed sheets really are not up to par and he would have to buy good...

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

James, I must say this has been a very thought provoking and enjoyable thread. Your love of sailing is obvious. I also think that P28s are great boats. Man your guns and sail on!

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

When the trim of my sails is criticized, I like to keep an open mind, as I know that after 45 years of sailing, there remains much I don't know. I mostly sail alone and fairly constantly trim my...

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

James, if you wish to video the sorry state of contemporary sailing, then by all means please continue to post vids of the sails on your boat, as your trim is far from optimal and your eBay bargain...

Re: Synthetic Motor Oil for my Diesel?

Agreed, most syn oil IS petroleum based. Long story short, it has been molecularly modified to make all of the molecules the same size. Hence less breakdown and thus better lubrication through out...

Re: New main sail

Judy B. Is correct. There is no flattening cringle on the leach. What you see that appears to be a cringle is indeed the leach line cleat.

Re: New main sail

The line running from just below the bottom batten on the leach to the boom is a jiffy reef line.

Re: New main sail

@ Shnool, happy to have your feedback. I like your prospective on things. Actually, the roach just kisses the backstay, which more roach than the original sail plan called for. Also there is only 8...

Re: New main sail

This was the first time out with the new sail. The wind was quite fluky as well. Also my first expearance with a loose footed main. Actually, the boom was not skying. As the boat was close hauled and...

Re: New main sail

The old main May have been original to the boat. I don't know. It was in its day a pretty nice sail made by a well respected north west loft of the era. It had gotten to the point that I could no...

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

There is a 24 ft Kent ranger on Seattle Craigslist for under $2500. A little IORish, but, neat unsinkable boats that sail and cruise quite well. Also, IMHO nice looking....

Re: Essential knots?

Clove hitch for tying fenders.... Tie a slippery clove , then tie a half hitch around the standing end with the bight. Looks good, is fast to tie and untie and haven't lost a fender in over 40 years.

Re: Essential knots?

Yes.... The cleat hitch/knot tells quite a story. The last boat I bought had plastic thingys on the fender lines to hook over the life lines. They are going in the trash and I will go back to the...
