Looking to rent a boat near Palm Beach FL

Hi All...

I'll be in Palm Beach, FL next week, and a friend and I would love to go sailing. Sadly, Google has been unable to help me find a boat rental company with sail boats, unless of course...

Re: Fuel Cell

HelloSailor, perhaps you missed the part where we said "I wait for the day where..." You sound like the people who insisted that man would never fly.

As for fuel cells using water to make power:...

Re: Anyone tried Star Brite Instant Hull Cleaner?

Thanks, I'll give that a try. I'll try a small area and see how it goes. Yes the slime might soften and come off when the diver cleans it. But I have an obnoxious ring of scum/slime around the...

Re: Yet another bilge pump thread - Flojet ?

Unless the weather dictates otherwise, I turn it off while sailing. At the slip, I'm plugged in.

Re: Anyone tried Star Brite Instant Hull Cleaner?

Yeah I thought of that, but wet sanding is going to take the paint off too, which I want to of course avoid.

Anyone tried Star Brite Instant Hull Cleaner?

My boat is still on the hard and it still has some slime from where the power washer missed (read, under the lifting straps) last season. So its hard. I got a lot of it off with a soft sponge and...

Re: Yet another bilge pump thread - Flojet ?

Much easier said then done.

For those of you who cruise your boats, adding all kinds of stuff that draws power and adds weight and takes up space is a perfectly acceptable option. For those of us...

Yet another bilge pump thread - Flojet ?

Hi All...

My dissatisfaction with my bilge water continues unabated. Currently, I have a Rule 800 automatic, in the sense that it turns itself on periodically, and if it senses load (due to water)...

Re: Partially filling a void

The liner, yes! The prior owner moved the traveler and put it here. I'm not sure where it was, although its in a good spot now.

I am sure there is no core there, I can see into the opening when...

Re: Partially filling a void

The plastic is part of the boat. Basically, the top layer is the outside of the cockpit, the the bottom layer is the inside of the boat. Here is a not great pic of the traveler:

Partially filling a void

Hi All...

The traveler on my boat is bolted down to the cockpit, through a section of fiberglass (sort of). This is hard to describe, but the bolts pass through two layers of plastic with a void...

Re: What Halyards go to the Masthead?

On my 30 foot sloop I recently replaced the mast. I went from four halyards (main, port jib, starboard jib, spinnaker) to just three (main, port ib and starboard jib).

The two forward halyards...

Re: Running Rigging Vendor_Whos Best?

If you need halyards, ask your vendor about "bulking" them where they go through the line clutch. They insert a little extra core material for a length of about 5 feet, so when the line is in the...

Re: Cushion winter storage

Thanks everyone. Normally I have the sails stored, but last season that was nearly $1,000! I rented a storage unit, but it is unheated. Perhaps the cushions should stay at home. Space is at a premium...

Re: Sealant recomendation
