Re: Price of boats... Wow!!!

Re: new boat

If I were buying a boat now to singlehand often, I would want a boat that backed well. My previous boat, a Bristol 29.9 had a mind of it's own in reverse and with no crew to fend off other boats,...

Re: Price of boats... Wow!!!

To put this in perspective, I would have to pay almost $150,000 more then I paid in 2001 to duplicate my 3700 Tartan this year, but I am pretty sure I could duplicate my 2001 Passat for almost the...

Re: Price of boats... Wow!!!

The number of sail boats sold in the U.S. in 2012 was up from the previous year, but was still about one third of the sales in 2001. Oddly enough, the average selling price was only slightly higher...

Re: Survey say's.......

Waivers of liability don't prevent litigation, they are meant to discourage unwarrented law suits. My business is involved in auto racing and we do make customers sign some pretty scary waivers...

Re: Excessive stern "tuck" under power

I fully understand how pushing a boat through the water makes it rotate about it's center of drag and that the more resistance you can design into the hull shape aft of that point, the less squat you...

Re: Wrapping a Steering Wheel

I did my wheel seven years ago with an unpadded cover from Boat Leather. Even with a jig to hold the wheel it took me seven hours. The results were well worth the effort, it still looks and feels...

Re: Wind Vane Calibration

My Raymarine wind instrument (st60) will only give accurate true wind info when I have the paddle wheel for the knot meter in the water (not always the case). I was surprised it could not do it from...

Re: Dodgers: Do we need one on our boat?

My first cruising boat was a Bristol 29.9, and like most of the boats of that era (70's) it had almost no opening ports. Actually, one small one in the head. The dodger gave us the ability to get...

Hi Gary,

Re: Britannia,

Hi Boxedup. I keep my Tartan 3700 at Britannia, and I am not the largest boat there. Pegasus takes five feet of water, so I have an hour or so on either side of dead low when I...
