Re: Really, $1000.00 for foulies?

90% or more of sailors never need anything more than light weight pants or a jacket with a hood that is semi water repellant.

The only thing I think of that is $1k is either HL's offshore ocean...

Re: Henri Lloyd Ocean Explorer Jacket Sizing

Tubesteak, send me an email at harneyyachtrigging at gmail dot com. I have an HL offshore racer Elite jacket for sale. Top of the line and only worn once. It's too small for me to layer under but...

Re: training - offshore sailing

Look to do deliveries, start with short overnights and if you like it move onto multi day passages. Lots of people looking for free help. Some may even pay for your plane ticket.

Re: Vang mechanical advantage

on a 30 footer you'll need at least 6:1 and 8:1 would be better. If the boom kicker is sized right, there shouldn't be much difference in load. However, I think the 800 model is too stiff for your...

Re: cleats

Go with a clutch. I like Lewmar's D1's for my 25 footer. Nice to the line and hold well. With a horn cleat, you can't get proper luff tension in a good breeze. A cunni will solve it, but so will a...

Re: Anchor Bridle Advice

I'm a Wichard dealer. The hooks are nice and the pin keeps the chain from popping off. Shoot me a PM if interested in picking one up, I can probably beat defenders price for sailnet members.

Re: Avoid "diegoscustommarine" on eBay for custom canvas

And people still buy "custom" sails online from someone who's 1,000 miles away.

Canvas is no different, if you don't have someone come out to the boat they will pin the poor fitment on you. ...

Re: Extra rope/lines for a new boat

Agreed, I wasn't referring to mastheads, sorry for the confusion I was switching back n' forth.


I don't think I mentioned a furling jib, If I gave you that impression than I apologize.

Re: Extra rope/lines for a new boat

You can usually fly a jib from a spin halyard but not the other way around. Boats typically come with a main halyard, jib halyard and 2 wing halyards. Race boats add a lot more. Your bowman should be...

Re: Extra rope/lines for a new boat

No rules that I'm aware of. You should have a spare halyard to your spare halyard. Most race boats have one main, one jib and 2 spin halyards. If you lose one, there are options to go up under sail...

Re: New halyard: Sta-Set or Sta-Set X?

12" sure will. Goes from a nice shape to a bagged out mess.

Re: Choreography To Walk the Jib around the Rigging

We do this on the 36.7, the J120, and the C&C 44. It also works on small boats. No is dragging the entire sail, just keeping the clew from hanging up on things.

Re: J24 keel damage - run aground

Re: Rigging question….

Cam cleats will typically need 1.5-2" of hardware to go from the top of the cleat to the inside of the mounting surface. For this reason, I suggested drill n' tap machine screws. If you want to...

Re: Choreography To Walk the Jib around the Rigging

I agree, when the top 1/3 backwinds it's fine, however, a lot of people who have been sailing a long time are way to slow at releasing and end up dragging the sail over the spreaders while the sail...
