Re: Questions about borrowing a friend's boat

Oh I remember this from Business Law 104 in college, it was called a bailment. Can't help you as I hated the course and slept through it. Cured me from ever going to law school. I will tell you...

Re-bedding Windows on a LF38

Well, it looks like we will need to re-bed a port window. The sealant has failed. What do we need to glue these babies in, on to the Silpruf SC2000 by GE or maybe the Dow 795 product. Looks like...

Re: Does VHF need external antenna?

Well since we sail in your waters, I think you should properly install the radio as a safety feature. Granted the Toronto/Rochester ferry is no longer bearing down on you at 30+ knots. CBPS wants to...

Re: Need Suggestions for first Charter in St. Martin?

Last March we left Guadeloupe for Il de Sainte and then on to Dominica and back all in the course of a week. To be candid we were sailing a Catana 47 which goes along at a pretty good clip, so maybe...

Re: Radar on 18-20 ft sailboat

A safer cheaper engineering solution would be to enable an AIS transponder. The tanker Captain would see you and ring you up for a conversation if you set his alarms off. Your ability as a radar...

Re: Numbers in V-berth from router: Hull #?

A five digit number is invalid, so I just kept adding numbers till I hit. From the entry it looks pretty close to the description of your boat. I stopped at '4' but I suppose if the dealer...

Re: Numbers in V-berth from router: Hull #?

Obviously a previously documented vessel. Go online to the Coast Guard Documentation Center and look up her provenance. (Hopefully you won't find her title amiss or she is stolen). I would file...

Re: C&C 29 - Mark 1 vs 2

I think Ron's take is correct. In digging around I found this review posted when the boat (Mk I) was new so I suspect the numbers came from the builder.\

Question Re: C&C 29 - Mark 1 vs 2

I have often wondered myself, about the height of the mast. My IOR measurement certificate lists the I=39.9 and you have the headboard on top of that, maybe 8 to 10 inches from the black band to the...

Re: USA to Canada?

Call Glenn at ATL Trucking in Virgil. He can pick it up from the jack stands, and if he has a backhaul from the area of purchase, likely it will save you money. You could possibly store it in his...

Thumbs up Re: Transom Lettering Height?

I would bet that it would show thru the paint, although this is often the solution used in our yard. I would run out and buy a Shurhold orbital polisher and a quart of 3M Imperial and polish it out....

Re: 1978 c&c 29

Looks like your the proud owner of a Mk I, and yes go read Hank Evans review, as he was an owner. I really don't class the boat as tender, but more on the side of over canvassed. It sails very much...

Re: Transom Lettering Height?

Yes that is true, but I confused the issue. Here on the border we would like our hail port to be Niagara, but that is rejected because as you point out there is no such instrumentality. The irony...
