Re: Has anyone used painted coatings with electrodes as a form of antifouling?

Ya know, you'd think that with all the smart people out there that SOMEBODY would have come up with a really good solution to marine fouling but I suppose its evidence of the tenacity of life that it...

Re: behavior on other's boats

On my boat, I'm captain. You don't F@#k with my boat unless I tell you to. You may suggest trim but you may not criticize.
Sometimes, I go along on my own boat as crew when I take a racer along...

Re: Do you have to be wealthy to own a sailing yacht?

Best sailor I ever knew was a homeless guy who cobbled together $500 to buy an old trashed out Venture 21. This guy was missing an ear, face covered with scars, missing half his hand and his dog had...

Re: Do you have to be wealthy to own a sailing yacht?

Depends on what you call a "yacht". Here in N. FL, a yacht is an oyster boat carrying a six pack of beer. However, the most accomplished sailors I have known have been poor and had old small boats....

Re: Diamond in the rough?

On 2nd thought, maybe I am a pathological optimist but I do see possibilities even if it is Ferro-cement. First, it should be at least 30' without the bowsprit, otherwise you could get a better bare...

Re: Diamond in the rough?

I like bilge keels but the design is just Butt Ugly. If it's ferrocement, maybe you could bury it and use it as a septic tank.
Now, for the possibilities: If it is fiberglass, it might be...

Re: Moving your boat from one place to another

Hmmm....at $800/ft, it would be $22400 to send my boat. I wonder if the cost is less for US to Europe. I'd love to find out but I would actually be embarassed to call them and ask what it would...

Re: When is a dirty bottom hopeless

Do any of the other posters do any of their own boat work?
Cleaning such growth off is easy. Go to Home Depot and buy a long handled manual edger. It looks like a hoe but with a straight blade. ...

Re: Chartering out my 28' boat in the Abacos

Re: Chartering out my 28' boat in the Abacos

I am a bit surprised at the responses as I assumed that there were many ppl who wanted to cruise for the same reasons I do. However, the sample size here has been small.
When I see those poor...

Re: Chartering out my 28' boat in the Abacos

My boat is registered in the Bahamas. I happen to think she is in good shape but I've spent many years sleeping on the ground outside so sleeping aboard is like a hotel by comparison.

Chartering out my 28' boat in the Abacos

I am considering chartering out my old 28' S2 that is at Marsh HArbor to help defray the costs of keeping her there. She is old and looks it although she is in good sailing condition. Her amenities...

Re: Dynamic Rope on Sailboats

Caving rope has much more in common with most sailing cordage than climbing rope does. Cavers use very low stretch rope because they actually climb the rope (rock in caves is generally "rotten")...

Re: Yanmar single-cylinder engine

Yes, that decompression lever is great for starting on either weak batteries or cold mornings. I was also never able to hand crank it.

I really think the 9.5 hp is plenty for this boat with the...

Re: Yanmar single-cylinder engine

I'd say this is a very good engine for this boat. My 28' S2 originally had a 1 cylinder Yanmar with only 6.5 hp and I cruised it all over the Gulf of Mexico in FL.
It routinely achieved 5 kts with...
