Re: Do I need new sails

Hey,

I can assure you that 35 year old sales are indeed, worn out. However, if you are happy with the way your boat sails, then there isn't any real reason to buy new sails. There are a bunch of...

Re: Suggestions for 28-32 cruiser?

Hey,

What's your budget?

Just about every boat boat built around 32' would meet your requirements. Do you want to spend 20K or 120k?

Re: As long as the boat is out of the water . . .

Hey,

Who is doing the work and how much time and money do you have?

Personally, the sailing season is too short for me to miss a significant part of it for maintenance that can be done in the...

Re: Making an offer for a sailboat

Hey,

Old used boat pricing / selling is a strange business.

I listed my O'day in October and didn't expect it to sell until this spring. I got some interest last fall but nothing serious....

Re: Sailing around the world on a Catalina 22 sailboat

Hey,

It would be very simple to sail around the world on a Catalina 22.

Just haul the boat, put it on a trailer, and load the whole rig onto a freighter.

There you go!

Hey,

Do you have, want, or use an Ipad, tablet, or laptop? If so, the best thing would be to put all the boat data onto a network and wifi. Then you will have the information anywhere you want,...

Getting Used To New Boat

Hey,

Re: What comes first?

Hey,

Before you do anything, you must find out where you will keep the boat. There is no point in finding the perfect boat at the perfect price and then finding you can't find a place to keep it....

Re: nmea 2000 etc

Hey,

Marine devices 'speak' to each other using a marine network. There are two basic kinds of networks: NMEA 0183 (older) NMEA 2000 (newer).

The Simard TP22 can use NMEA 0183 or Simnet, which...

Re: Raymarine ST 60 wind - speed is WRONG

Hey,

On my boat, the wind speed worked fine but the wind direction just spun in circles. I worked with a raymarine tech over the internet to trouble shoot it. The consensus was that the masthead...

Re: Jib car gets stuck on track

Hey,

I would use sailkote, a hammer, and an inspection of the track. Spray the track with Sailkote, move the car forward. When it hits, back it up and see why it won't move forward. Then clean,...

Re: Safe mooring of new style boat

I like this idea. Mount a mooring eye on the bow, about 1' above the water line. If a storm is forecast, move the mooring pendants from the deck down to the eye. This will require a dingy or launch...

Re: New to us CS36T and Westerbeke 30

Hey,

Congrats on the new boat. I know it's not easy, but try not to obsess to much about things. Really, if the engine ran fine for 2+ hours and didn't burn or leak anything, it must be in decent...

Re: O'Day 35 vs Catalina 36

Hey,

I'm prejudiced because I own (and am selling) and O'day 35. IMHO no, the Catalina is not worth the extra $.

The two boats are similar. Both use Universal Diesel engines. The Catalina is...

If there is a lot of old paint build up, the best way is to hire a soda blaster, and have him remove all the old paint. After...
