Re: Blister Repair - How we did it.

1. In fact I tried Interlux's stripper on places where it was difficult to sand with the machine. The Interlux product was useless. Maybe there are other products out there for use on fibreglass...

Re: Help needed to develop fun sailing events for a small club

I think this is called a predicted log. I am sure there would stuff on the internet about it.

Re: Weather Guessing

You are right. Many times, the cold fronts either stall, and never make it. Or, at least slow down. Probably hard to predict this at times here on the Gulf.

For gribs, I use Ugrib - Software...

Re: Reverse Polarity

Hmmm. I don't think I'd want to stay at that marina. It's actually a serious matter. As in, could kill somebody. Pick up a receptacle tester for a few bucks...

Re: Annoying Halyard Slap

Couldn't agree more… Somebody's gotta say it - Ordinary bungee cords have no place aboard a proper yacht…

Re: Request for Comments: DIY Tether

So it turns out my tether is not so great.

I already got a one-hand-opening double-action aluminum carabiner. That was a big improvement. I think that really is a must-have like so many from...

Re: Masts - deck or keel stepped?

Tighten upwind, ease downwind. Tighten in heavy air, ease in light air.

You'll point higher upwind and keep more speed in light air. You can carry more sail as wind speed increases before you have...

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

OK, I've done several sails with the new 5/16" VPC halyard, so I can make a few comments.

One of the first things that I noticed is how light the line is, especially when wet. I guess the...
