Re: Can I reef with this furler

By all means make a lowball offer, there are so many on the market. The reason there are so many is that they are a great boat. Spend some time on the Catalina 34 International Association website....

Red face Re: Coastal sailing without depth finder?

For day-sailing in good visibility, you don't need one. For anything else, they're so cheap, it's prudent to have one. Some areas, like the South San Francisco Bay, it can save you a lot of trouble...

Re: In-mast furler advice

Furl slowly. Give the sail time to roll up with no folds. When you watch how the sail goes into (and out of) the slot, you can get a sense of rythem and timing. Think about it: the boat is moving,...

Re: Sorry, you are about to get slammed. First question: bowsprit

Good plan. Also, ask for a good place to buy hardwood. A regular lumber yard probably doesn't carry this. The price of the piece might shock you, but get the correct lumber. Sometimes if you are...

Re: Catalina or Hunter?

I've seen a lot of Hunters and Catalinas in that size range. I've always favored the Catalinas, but that is just because I like the way they look and are layed out. Which is the point: they are...

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

OK, back to the topic.

I also went through your issue, and decided to get a larger boat. The one thing I learned is to really find your what the wife wants. I ended up letting her pick the boat,...

Re: Sorry, you are about to get slammed. First question: bowsprit

Good advice above. By all means give Spalding a call, or ask around the marina where the boat is for the name of a boatwright who works in wood. Even if you end up paying for the advice, you might...

Re: Exceeding Hull Speed in Flat Water: Fantastic Sailing in Ideal Conditions

Whoa ... something must be going on. Sunday, here on the left coast, we also had a super day of sailing. Lisa (my wife) and I went out in 16+ knots and just had a blast moving the boat through the...

Re: Docking for Dummies

All the above sound like good advice. The only thing (I might have missed) is to get out there and practice, practice, practice. I like to go out to where there is a mark of some sort and practice...

Re: “What’s The WORST Storm You’ve Seen?”

Two stand out. One was in the Gulf of Tejuantapec (spelling) in Central America. I was on a 45' Choy Catamaran. The wind was gusting somewhere about 60 knots. We were close to land so we headed...

Re: 50' Motor Cruiser, powered by 2 6hp outboards.

No disrespect intended. Still, this boat is not safe. That's just sad.

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

This sounds great. One caution: make sure you are emotionally set to walk away if the survey presents big problems in the mast, deck, engine (get a seperate engine survey) or any big suprise! Be...

Re: Husband fell in love with an 1978 Ericson Mark II 35.5

Nancy,
BubbleHead and Krazz and Christian are spot on. The Atomic 4 is a great engine. I do however disagree with one point: The blower is always important. In an emergency part of the...

Re: Cruising California. Experiences and advice.

Yes, Night Sailor has a lot of good points.

1. If you are inexperienced in ocean sailing, you should try several - or more - day sails outside the Golden Gate to be sure your stomach is up to it....

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

Nice looking boat! Is the hull fiberglass or wood? A word of caution: Check around to make sure that your surveyor is top notch. Brokers can find surveyors that will sign off on pretty much...

Re: Husband fell in love with an 1978 Ericson Mark II 35.5

Here's the thing. People use gas engines all the time, you just have to be (very) careful. If you like the boat, the fact that it is not diesel should not be a deal stopper. What is a deal stopper...

Re: Cruising California. Experiences and advice.

The boat yard in Santa Cruz has been taken over by the Port District. It is now a DIY (or use contractors off of a supplied list) boatyard.

Both good plans, but for a surfer going from San Francisco down allows you some of the best surf on the coast.
San Francisco has Ocean Beach and surrounding surf areas. Totally world class.
