Lots of threads on this subject.
I've bought two sails from them, rf staysail and a rf genoa, both are excellent (offshore). A lot of people are scared off by the low prices and feel that having...

Re: NAV/RADAR Monitor Size

For a dedicated radar display 5X6" is plenty big even with old eyes (I should know:-)). I have a 12" display on our fishing boat, radar overlay, etc and I don't find it any more accurate or readable...

Re: To Rebuild or not to Rebuild that is the question

You should always replace the thermostat(s) after overheating an engine, at a minimum. You should also change the raw water impeller if it was starved for water and if it is missing pieces you need...

Re: Replacing Pedestal Guard on older Whitlock Pedestal

I did what you are talking about, changed the guard from 12.5" to a new one that is 12". I couldn't find any parts (1988 boat) so I built my own new top plate out of aluminum. I used bronze...

Re: Washington State - Sailing? Living?

Alex's post generally sums it up. I'll add my two cents worth. I've lived here since 1953 (not a native, I was two at the time). Western WA isn't for everyone, you can get wet spells that last 90...

Re: Buying a Canuck...?

We just bought a power boat in Canada and brought it into the states. It was a piece of cake, but you need to make sure the broker fills out the proper paperwork. There is a requirement regarding...

Re: Raw water strainer

Re: Friday Harbor to Shilshole Marina...wifi?

N&N- I see they are calling for some south winds later in the week. Keep an eye on the forecast, and winds at Smith Is. prior to departure. 20 kts against the flood wouldn't be fun, 10 kts no...

Re: Friday Harbor to Shilshole Marina...wifi?

With this weather and the currents I'd just shoot out Cattle Pass on the ebb and head for Pt. Townsend. If you time it right you can pick up the flood and be in PT easily in a day and there is great...
