Captiva,
I would love to see your boat. She sounds wonderful.
I too added a 110/12 volt refrigerator. It was a lot of work to fit it in where the clothes hangers were, but it was well...

Yes, my records show that to be the original name and owner!

I'm guessing the "net 5" would refer to her weighing five tons. (she doesn't like to talk about her weight, she's working on it)

Sloop Jon,
I hear you and I think you have some very interesting ideas. It sounds like an interesting project to try. I don't see why it wouldn't work, but I do agree that in their natural...

What also would matter would be that my wife and I would be the only ones aboard. But, I hear you and I do understand that most boats of the same length would offer more room. Still, I think it's...

Funny canoso brought up "Breakin' Wind".

Just the other day I was teasing my dad about his "gas hog" cabin cruiser, saying he should name it "Passing Gas". He came back with "Breaking Wind" as...

Well, I for one prefer the wood!

If you find it too hard to bend, try soaking it in water or better yet steaming it. If that doesn't work for you, you can always rip it into thinner strips and...

Minnew,
Your Hinckley thought is a very good one. But it makes me think of a woman comparison. Would you rather have one that's a great cook or incredibly sexy? I don't know about you, but...

I would think you are right about the fastening to the cabin top, without disturbing the cabin ceiling. Toggles sound good to me and I'm a professional woodworker. I'd be sure to bed them very...

I use Turtle Wax's Chrome Polish, available at WalMart. (of all places) It works great, as it's designed to dissolve rust and it's a polish as well. I have used it on some very rust stained...

That's so nice of you to include us.

I'm not sure what we will be doing that day, but I'll mention your invitation to Leslie. Are there a lot of liveaboards in this area? I'll bet they're a...

That's an interesting looking dodger. I've never seen one like it. I especially like it being white.

Thank you all for such wonderful responses!

I am starting to get it. (I think) You can handle a lot, but how badly do you want to?

In the future, I plan to do some winter live-a-board...

I'd love to talk with the guy on the 44 footer!

But you have brought up a very good idea to try handling the sails first, if possible.

Do you ever single hand yours? Is it a 54' Jeanneau?

I'm thinking your sail is the problem. My last boat had that situation as well. The boom hung way down and looked all wrong. It sailed fine, but jibing was a little more excitement then we needed....

Wow Casey,

That doesn't sound right. I'm thinking your dodger must be too high. I wouldn't think you'd want to change the shape of the main to compensate. But I guess if I were you, I'd do...

Thanks John and Minnew,
All great ideas to consider! I sure can relate to throwing the jib over by hand when jibing, as I hate surprises! I understand a larger boat would require more...

My present boat just has a pig tail on the back stay, so I have no choice but to unhook it. But on my last boat, I always unhooked the topping lift. Why leave it flopping around? I would just clip...
