Re: generator a good idea?

Silentwind sounds good, most of the boats near me have the "Annoying Noise 24/7" models.

Re: generator a good idea?

Re: minor damage to teak toe rail

The method you propose is sometimes referred to as a Dutchman, it is common to make the gouge a regular shape with a chisel (old school) or router. This makes it easier to make a patch piece that...

Re: Water tnk for cal 22

Re: Coastal sailing without depth finder?

Can't help but think that if you were close enough to shore to be concerned about 2 foot depth you could navigate by reading the address numbers on the houses.
I was gonna suggest he carry a...

Re: ASA Course test

I was free to talk it over amongst myself since I was the only one there, I don't remember the tests as being difficult enough to require a group effort.

Re: sailed once with my uncle

The original owner was a Lord who OWNED the shipyard where it was built at 1963 prices, pretty deep pockets to replicate. There's probably people on this forum who could buy that boat out of their...

Re: sailed once with my uncle

That's not a "project" that's a career for you and the whole family, a 1400 gal. tank of fuel will be $5000, have you located and priced a 90' dock or yardspace ?

Re: Curse my impulsivity, I'm buying a boat! Taipan 28

Is it your intention to make an offer to buy at the full asking price sight unseen ? Sounds like you'd have to come down to Redondo Beach within a week for the survey and sea trial anyway. I wonder...

That's your problem, you want "cure" the product, not make it into jerky, no wonder sales are down.
