Pettit Vivid

Has anyone tried the Pettit Vivid bottom paint? If so, was it easy to work with and how did the boat look when you pulled it out of the water?

Thanks,

A sealant like Sikaflex 291 would be a good one for rebedding the hardware.

Check your weather. Learning to sail is more fun in calm conditions.

Invest in a good inflatable PFD and get in the habit of wearing it.

Like several other people said - lessons are good.

The thing to check first is that you have the oil or ATF fluid specified for that transmission and that it's been changed within the past couple of years. You might give that a try.

Good luck!

What kind of winch is it? If, for instance, you bought a Barient winch and live in North America then you made a wise choice. Parts are almost impossible to find.

I hand wash halyards and sheets in a mild detergent and rinse them off in the shower. I've seen the core work their way out of the cover after lines have been in the washing machine.
