Re: Choosing the right metal

I've been reading of amsteel having abrasion issues when used as lifelines. That is what steers me away from the new cordage.

Specifically, what type of bronze?

Re: Choosing the right metal

It "may" be 50 years old; it may be 10. It is "probably" some kind of bronze. I just don't know. There are different kinds of bronze and once again, I don't know what was used.

I'm 64 years old....

Re: Choosing the right metal

I believe I'll go with stainless. The rest of the system is stainless so that makes sense. Also stainless is more readily available. Thanks for the input.

Re: Coast Guard Documentation process times.

Just curious, but I wonder why/how priority handling is granted and why everyone doesn't request it.

Re: Choosing the right metal

How's this. This is not mine, but just like it (except this one is in good shape).

Choosing the right metal

Hope I can get some help here. I need to replace the attachment on my Pearson's swing keel. The old one has corroded to almost nothing. It may be nearly 50 years old. It looks like it is probably...

Re: Whisker pole end fittings.....

Right now on ebay there is a right proper whisker pole for under two hundred bucks. Nine feet, I think.

Re: Wanderer / P35 Centerboard Tang Replacement

Well, I got into it this week. The shackle on the board was rotted away to almost nothing so I'll have to fabricate one. I think bronze sheeting can be had from Onlinemetals.com. Maybe get all you...

Re: Conch Charters, BVI

O.K. I'll go.

Two years ago we had chartered a 32 footer and had some regrets because by the time they put in a big head there was little leg room in the v berth. After two days the refrigeration...

Re: Conch Charters, BVI

While I can agree that customer service is not a high priority with Conch, I think you need to reconsider your statement about paying "slightly" more for your charter at another company.

I have...

Re: Wanderer / P35 Centerboard Tang Replacement

Checked out the centerboard pennant on my Wanderer this weekend. There is quite a bit of wear where the wire exits the tube before winding on the take up spool. It also seems that there is a slot in...

Re: Island Music

You should definitely check out Lashing Dogs from the BVI. Very authentic and no steel drums.

Re: Coast Guard Documentation process times.

Take heart. The annual renewal process has a much faster turnaround. Usually just a few weeks.

In the meantime, anyone needing proof of documentation should be satisfied with the old documents and...

Re: 2015 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Speaking of a much needed break from the cold, my wife is "making" me go on a 10 day bareboat charter in the BVI.

A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. Have a happy Valentine's Day.

Re: Potomac or Rappahannock?

Well, Chuck, it doesn't seem as though folks on the Rappahannock have anything to offer. I'll be glad to stay put and enjoy the Potomac as my home base.

BTW, I'm over on Smith Creek and the...

Potomac or Rappahannock?

We've been using a marina on the Potomac for a few years now and enjoy sailing the river and the bay. Day sails up the St Mary's are always nice and the college offers activities such as concerts in...

Re: What are the implications of buying a uSCG registered sailboat?

It cost me about 80.00 to transfer documentation to my name when I bought my boat a few years ago. Now there is an annual fee of 26.00. I would check to make sure the current owner has kept up with...

Re: Point Lookout to Ocracoke

Great suggestion, but I'm 64 and I think I will have to pass on the hang gliding. Call me a lightweight.

Point Lookout to Ocracoke

We are thinking about sailing from Point Lookout, MD to Ocracoke, NC this spring. Our thought was to take the Dismal Swamp route to Belhaven then across to Ocracoke. Hoping to circle back and take...
