Re: Sorry, you are about to get slammed. First question: bowsprit

You can think of it as 2 flat plates, one on either side of the bowsprit, that are bolted together with 6 bolts. The plate on the top has screw clearance holes that have been countersunk so that the...

Re: Sorry, you are about to get slammed. First question: bowsprit

It has been a while since I have posted here but I noticed the subject and I have done this exact repair (Cape Dory 30) so thought that I would throw my thoughts into the mix. The Cape Dory owners...

Re: CS36T - Deep vs Shoal Keel Questions From Potential Buyer

Thanks for the responses guys. I think that I will look at both keel versions when the snow retreats and I can start seeing boats.

I have heard the comments on the companionway being steep, it is...

Re: CS36T - Deep vs Shoal Keel Questions From Potential Buyer

Jim, out of curiosity, was your 36t a shoal or deep draft? It is reassuring to have heard so many owners talk about how well their boat handled in less than ideal conditions.

One of the things...

Re: CS36T - Deep vs Shoal Keel Questions From Potential Buyer

Maine, I really appreciate the response. It was actually your comments on how solid your boat feels that made me even consider the shoal draft in the first place.

Re: CS36T - Deep vs Shoal Keel Questions From Potential Buyer

Faster, thanks for fixing the title. I think that you hit on what I am trying to get at, will I be happy with the performance of a shoal draft model. If it means anything, we both prefer stiff...

CS36T - Deep vs Shoal Keel Questions From Potential Buyer

We are starting to think about switching to a boat that better meets our current cruising style and the CS 36T is one of the boats that has made it onto our short list. It happens to be the only...

Re: Current Status of Annisquam River Bridges

I got some more information so I wanted to provide an update.

Nothing is wrong with the Blynman bridge, apparently the operator simply did not open it all of the way. The person in charge of the...

Current Status of Annisquam River Bridges

Does anyone have any beta on the current state of the bridges in the Annisquam? I went through there for the first time of the season today and it was definitely the most nerve wracking trip that I...

Re: Marblehead to Hampton, NH

Alden, I reread my post and I don't think that I was clear on going inside Thatchers. I go inside fairly regularly myself. The reason that I said to think twice is it can get really bumpy in there...

Re: 100 lb of Lead Vs 100 lb of concrete

Yes, it is correct. It is all about density. Water has a density of 1g/cc. Anything that is less dense than that will float. Anything that is more dense will sink. If something sinks, it will...

Re: Marblehead to Hampton, NH

If you are looking for a lunch stop on your first day, Brace Cove is neat and a place where most people don't get to from the shore due to no parking. Rockport itself is cool and Bearskin Neck is...

Re: Marblehead to Hampton, NH

tsell,

talbot gave you good advice. The few things that I would add are:

If you haven't done a lot of bridges, try to arrive at the entrance to the Blynman canal close to slack water, at...

Re: Sail time from Boston to Dartmouth

I have done this trip a number of times and the amount of time that it takes varies widely, especially on the shoulder seasons. If you get a good breeze like a nice cold front, you can easily do it...

Re: Favorite old towing vehicles?

4000 lbs is no much at all to tow as already stated. Your issues will be the height of the load, the windage and the launch ramp. If you tow regularly or in tough areas, you really should be...

Re: Tires as Fenders

casey,

If you decide to leave the tires at the dock, I would recommend retying them to the boat when you get back. If they are securely tied to the boat, it will scuff your topsides a lot less as...

Re: Tires as Fenders

On larger commercial vessels and tugs, tires are routinely used as fenders.

The good things about them are that they are nearly indestructible and cheap. They will be used for years in really...

Re: CAD drawings...

To do a proper stability test, you would need pretty close to full drawings or models which I doubt exist. At some point, there were drawings for the boat but they would not have been made in CAD,...

Re: my boat dances on a ball

Smallboatlover, a boat dancing on the ball is a big deal for two reasons. First it is really unpleasant (I have experienced 120 degree swings heeling over 20 degrees on each side). Second, it can...

Re: Priming you water pressure pump

Most likely, you either have an air leak above tank level or your pump isn't sealing completely and is allowing the water to drain back when it is off. If you have a ball valve at the outlet of the...

Re: Repower confusion (horsepower)

To add the jrd22's comments on running an engine with a blown turbo, it is a bit different in a sailboat than in an OTR vehicle. In an OTR vehicle, you are simply down on power. In a...

Re: Diesel fuel line installation

In my opinion, many of the home polishing systems are really pointless. Your engine's fuel pump is pulling fuel through your primary filter which is "polishing" your fuel. If you add a second loop...

Re: Oil in exhaust?

Have you always seen grey smoke at lower revs? If you haven't, check to make sure everything else is normal like engine operating temperature.

Have you always seen black smoke at the higher revs?...
