Re: Devlin's 24’ Gaff Rigged Sloop

You are very welcome. I have owned my share of traditional wooden boats in my day. They are a very different sailing experience: not necessarily better or worse, just different.

The fellow who...

Re: Devlin's 24’ Gaff Rigged Sloop

Having designed, restored, and built a few wooden boats, I would be glad to discuss building this design with you. Little gaffers like these are very charismatic. I have always enjoyed sailing on...

Re: Mast steps

They have what the manufacturer refers to as a spreader bar that is supposed to prevent the loop from constricting the foot. But like any narrow step, the pressure on the arch will get uncomfortable...

Re: Chestertown?

I have not sailed to Chestertown in many years. In fact the last time that I actually sailed there, I was sailing Rugosa, the Laser 28 that I owned before Synergy, and which I sold back in 2001.

Re: Simple Question-How good is the sailing in the Chesapeake ?

I have sailed on the Chesapeake bay for the past 30 years and have sailed on much of the U.S. Atlantic coast at one time or another. While I am very partial to the Bay and think its one of the best...

Re: Any way to check keel bolts?

Sistering would not be a good option. Its hard to know how carefully the keel on this boat was engineered but there is a standard for how closely spaced keel bolts can be spaced based on bolt...

Re: Any way to check keel bolts?

I am sorry that you have chosen to take umbrage with my description of the mid-1960’s era Columbias, as “Columbias of that era were not all that well built. Keel bolts of that era were typically...

Re: Any way to check keel bolts?

The keel came off my Folkboat. She had been in the water and mostly okay. I hauled her to do a bunch of work. After she was out a while, the travelift picked up her bow to reset the chocks. The keel...

Re: Standfast 36 anyone have any advice

Miatapaul and Puddinglegs are more right about the cost of sails for a boat like the Standfast 36 than you may wish to think.

The Standfast has a rig proportion, which came into being as a way to...

Re: 37 ft Irwin ketch

We all started learning somewhere, and your question is a good one. In a broad general sense, simply knowing the weight (displacement) of the boat tells you almost nothing about either the stability...

Re: Sailboat Insurance

I assure you that I did not shake my head. I think because I have strong opinions, people think that I must be very judgmental about their choices. In reality, I may think that an I.P. 35 would make...

Re: Kaufman 47 cutter, anyone have anything on these boats?

Congratulations, Those are really wonderful boats. There was one named 'Dove' that lived near here that had made all kinds of long passages. A beautiful and fast boat.

Enjoy owning her.

Re: East Coast Marinas - need no frills just less expensive?

I am located in Annapolis and my boat stays in the water year round with the help of a bubbler. That is quite common here on the middle Chesapeake. There are a quite a few comparatively inexpensive...

Re: Boat sank at the dock

This is not a 'modern' boat but also not all modern offshore boats have anti-siphons on their loops. Some old timers see anti-siphons as just another device to fail and sink the boat, preferring...
