Re: Advice on redesigning cabin layout

First thing to do is to get up to Brooklyn and get a book or two on joinery and boat interiors at the Woodenboat store. If you have a chance, get down to Tennant's Harbor & check out the boat they've...

Re: Alternative to Solar

What if it was possible to move the box? You could hoist it up the mast when at anchor, so that even in a quiet harbor it got the most movement. Under way it could go on a bunk up forward, or in the...

Re: Starting a Sailing team: Comments, tips, advice, appreciated.

In the vein of cooperating with W&M, you could point to the USCG Academy in New London. I believe Connecticut College uses their facilities, and the Academy also hosts High School regattas. ...

Re: Starting a Sailing team: Comments, tips, advice, appreciated.

Re: Adding a auxiliary outboard.

Losing power may be the No 1 cause of rescue for the RNLI because they rescue a lot of powerboats. Is there a separate count of how many sailboats they rescue because they lose power? Fouling the...

Re: learning about waves...

Anything more than 30' high would probably be more than you'd want to handle. The tops of such waves would be well above your spreaders with you straight up & down in the trough. Four to six foot...

Re: Considerations in Choosing a Marina

Besides location, a lot depends upon what YOU are looking for. You probably don't need a laundry or showers, since you can do that at home. Are you planning to spend time on the boat in the slip, or...

Re: Flush Mount Ventilators

I'd start by going with the solar fan. They work, even when there's no breeze, so that going below can be tolerable on even the hottest days. We've had ours for 12 years, and have had to replace the...

Re: Removing Mast on Rhodes 19 keel boat

Re: Lightnings vs Scots vs Snark vs Sunfish

Putting up a Lightning mast singlehanded can be done, but you'll want to try it with some helpers around the first few times. Missing the partners with the butt of the mast could be an expensive...
