Re: Chesapeake Bay Anchor Holding Power test

I'm an advocate of Crankshaft Anchors™ (http://sailingfortuitous.com/crankshaft/).

Seriously, though, how about using a test vessel that is about 1/4 that size?

True, Engrish can be confusing at times.

Re: Boom on Venture 21

I was hoping for a side view, but it appears that the mast is raked too far aft.

Re: Boom on Venture 21

Do you have a photo? A direct side view would be helpful. You may have the rake (angle) of the mast wrong.

Re: Living Aboard MacGregor26

If you read about the demasting it was a turnbuckle that backed out. It was his fault, not the boat. He should have locked the turnbuckle and checked his tension more often.

Re: Living Aboard MacGregor26

That's cool. I've never had a Venture, but my Macgregor appears to be built better than what you described. Perhaps they stepped up their game as the years went by.

Re: Sailing around the world on a Wrangler

8" PVC outrigger pontoons and you'll be fine. Make sure you have a CB radio in case you run into any trouble, though.

Re: Living Aboard MacGregor26

I'm not really interested in the 26, but I haven't really heard of any catastrophic failure on such a trip with said boat. Not saying it hasn't or couldn't happen, though.

This guy apparently...

Here we go with the "Macgregor's not a real boat" drama again.

Re: Living Aboard MacGregor26

I have a Mac 25 (swing keel) and love it, that one appears to be the water-ballasted 26D which I am not familiar with. The longest I've been on it is a week, but I wouldn't recommend that for more...

Re: Warning!!!!!!

Perhaps it needs IKEAesque pictographic instructions

Re: Sailing around the world on a Catalina 22 sailboat

Also do you have the cutter, ketch, or pilot house version?

Re: Sailing around the world on a Catalina 22 sailboat

Sounds fun.

I have a question though, your profile says you have a Tayana 37...wouldn't that be a better suited vessel for such an expedition?

Go for it. I plan on circling the planet in my Macgregor 25 death machine.
