Re: cruiser/racer

Thanks Barquito,

No real draft concerns. It would be moored in the inter coastal less than a mile from the inlet to the ocean. I have an old sailboat now (1974 O'Day) and although I really...

cruiser/racer

Hi,

I'm looking for a boat that can raced as well as used for cruising with my wife. The length should be in the mid thirties and the price around $50,000. Any opinions are appreciated.

Replace Standing Rigging

I'd like to replace the standing rigging on my 27' O'day sailboat. Is it possible for me to look up the specs for that boat and order a package from a company or do I have to measure each wire?

Rolly Tasker Sails, Florida

I just got a quote for a 6.5 oz dacron sail with hanks on luff for $695 to replace my torn genoa. The price is much lower than other quotes. Anyone ever bought sails from this maker before?

Replace Sails

Please forgive the dumb question - but how do I replace a sail? Is the only way to give the dimensions to a sail maker and have a new one made? Is there a used sail market? I have a 1972 O'Day and...

Re: Jib catches while tacking

I've included a picture of where it is catching. It hooks on a rung on the shrouds. I think a roller furler may do the trick?

Jib catches while tacking

My Jib is ripping as it catches on the ladder that is also the rigging on my sailboat. Is there something that I can attach to the ladder to prevent it from catching?

Re: Standing Rigging is really slack

Standing Rigging is really slack

One strand of my standing rigging is suddenly really loose. I believe that it is the intermediate shroud. It starts 2/3s of the way up the mast and attaches to the port side of the boat. Is there...

Re: Looking for help looking for a boat!
