Re: Cocaine $16M/£10M seized in Caribbean!

It is a shame that this happened. Another person persecuted for a 'victimless' crime. Victimless is quoted because there is an actual victim, the government agency that controls the 'illegal' drug...

Re: Shipping my new-to-me boat

My final try at shipping my 1984 Cal 31 was again off a google search. I found Bill West at A-1 Haul Your Boat or RV Transportation. I submitted a quote request and got a prompt response. I then...

For a basic starting position, imagine a line from the mid-luff, through the clew to the deck.

Re: single-hand: best time raise/lower jib?

The tiller tamer is a nice $20 piece of equipment for a 22footer or less... I always used a bungee!

Oh, and as for going to irons to reef? On a 25 footer or less? Um no... Close haul baby!!! ...

Re: single-hand: best time raise/lower jib?

Well, back on track then :)

On my little 22' boat for raising/lowering the main I point head-to-wind, either by tying the bow to a buoy or the leeward side of the dock, or by motoring into the...

Re: single-hand: best time raise/lower jib?

Surprised no one has mentioned up and down haul lines for the Jib

Jib should be in attached bag or on deck, already hanked on and the downhaul holding it down.

The jib halyard and down haul...

Re: single-hand: best time raise/lower jib?

I always raised the main directly into wind (slugs get stuck otherwise), then turned off onto a very close haul on starboard tack. Tighten the port sheet up a bit (not too much) and hoist the jib. ...

Re: Need Rigging Advice

Yep on both my Halyards that is how I attached the line. On a small boat like ours there isn't a huge amount of tension on the halyard. Although in the pictures it looks like they are using it to...

Sewmanship--How to become a God of Sunbrella

There's a good deal of cloth on a boat besides the sails. We take it for granted until it needs to be repaired, renewed or replaced. Then we need smelling salts at the first price quote.

A great...

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

We just watched it (the credits are rolling as I type).
I agree wholeheartedly with Sail Magazine's review.
There were far too many technical errors. They made it impossible to suspend disbelief....

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

Sail magazine just summed it up best:

"The most anticipated sailing film of the past year, of course, was a major feature, All is Lost, starring Robert Redford as an unnamed solo sailor who loses...

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

I liked it for what it was.
It showed how a really tough competent guy who seems to have his act together and didn't let stuff get to him gradually got beat down by something much bigger than him...

Re: Beneteau Loves Silicone?

My CS27, as well as Maine's CS36T have everything above deck bedded with butyl from the factory. My boat is 36 years old. The butyl still seals any hardware that is original without leaks - including...

Re: Beneteau Loves Silicone?

I never really thought about the uses of "silicone" until I started trolling here years ago... the butyl tape is heavily discussed all over this board and I've even purchased some from mainsail......

Re: Beneteau Loves Silicone?

The serious downside to silicone is, while it remains flexible upon compression, it does not remain adhered well to its joining surfaces, if it is stretched. Silicon dries into a semi-rigid state. ...

Re: Beneteau Loves Silicone?

Paulo, as Alex suspected, I definitely was not using "silicone" in any kind of generic way to mean "bedding goop." Polyurethanes, polysulfides, butyl are fine, silicone not. Silicone has those...

Re: Beneteau Loves Silicone?

Biggest issue with silicone is that it has "oils" that leach out of it and are extremely hard to clean off. This residue makes it very difficult to get anything else to seal. This residue is very...
