Re: Lighthouse 1501 on PSC 34

Re: Varnish removal: should I, could I?

Re: PS 37 boarding ladder size

We've had the 70" Mystic ladder installed for about 15 years and are pleased with it. It's on the forward end of the port side genoa track (BBQ side). (On older C37's this track ends about 10 inches...

Re: Mast Painting

We've done our spars three times now over the last 20 years. The first two times we used Sterling and the last time (2012) we rolled and tipped Awlgrip. I'd say the Awlgrip system is easier to use. ...
