Re: Looking for other Cal 29 owners..

$6k for a Beta 14 designed for Atomic 4 replacement. It has the correct mounts and the exhaust is on the right.

There are three completely different Cal 30s, all designed...

Re: cruisers meetup sail labor day Corpus Christi

Download OpenCPN and the charts for your area. That should give you some idea of the depths where you are going.

Re: Celebrating Two Years of Sailing in the South Pacific

Nice video, but the still shots should be left up a few seconds longer to let the eyes wander a little.

What is "5.10B" about? I only know that as a climbing term.

Re: Moving to Florida

There is a Meetup group called "Tampa Bay Sailors" that often meets in Apollo Beach (I think) to sail out of a club there. You are not required to have a boat to join the group, or go sailing. It...

Re: keel cooling

It's a small electric 300GPH diaphragm pump. I already have it, and figured it would be the easiest way to rig a pump, as it's just a few hose-clamps to hook up to the heat exchanger.

I'm not...

Re: Size vs. Condition/Amenities?

Can you not actually stand fully erect on the Arcadia? I sold my first keelboat because my head rubbed or banged everywhere but under the hatch. My current boat has *just* enough headroom that I...

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

My very first time sailing my own boat, I was 15 and had just bought a Hobie 16. It was a beautiful day and I had no idea what I was doing besides what I'd read in books. Some other sailors helped me...

Re: new cal 20 owner looking for information

May I ask why you are lifting the boat? I am going to assume that it is to drop the keel?

It is on a trailer, correct?

You can lift the whole trailer with a heavy-duty floor jack. Support the...

Re: 12V refrig units and power

Engel has very efficient drop-in units. I'm planning to purchase one of these to replace my un-insulated ice-box, and power it with two 12v G27s, each fed by it's own 100Watt panel and WPM charge...
