Re: Numbers in V-berth from router: Hull #?

I looked at the CG website and punched in all numbers from 0 to 9. 4 came up with hits but 6 were invalid. I'm guessing those 6 numbers were assigned at one point but expired years ago and are no...

Re: Numbers in V-berth from router: Hull #?

OK, back to the OP...is it possible there is another digit hidden by that hatch?

Whoever etched those numbers took their time to do a decent job. The NET 7 isn't centered under the number, but if...

Re: Numbers in V-berth from router: Hull #?

I'm willing to bet money that is a CG number as it fits their format with NO in front of the numbers. Maybe back then, they used one less digit than they do these days.

It's also possible that...

True, not all states require documented boats to be state registered. VA doesn't either.

Re: Numbers in V-berth from router: Hull #?

While the number is hidden from casual viewing, it is readily accessible and that is all that matters. Most boats do have them hidden away in similar fashion.
My current sailboat has it mounted on...

Re: Getting Started Cruising?

Like mf70 said, buy a smaller boat you are comfortable with and start sailing and learn as you go. You don't have to buy new or something made to cross oceans. Start looking around and pick...

Re: Newport 30 tiller replacement

You do realize that this is a 4 year old thread. I'm guessing the OP found a tiller quite some time ago.

Re: Varnish removal: should I, could I?

I sanded all my exterior teak and went the Cetol route back in the spring. It has held up very well and plan on keeping it that way.
As far as sand paper goes, I found flexible sandpaper blocks at...

Re: Greetings from Kent Island, MD

I don't know how strong the Catalina 27/270 Association is, but if it is only 1/2 as good as the C-34 owners association, it will be great.

Re: Need advice on choosing a Boat

I'm not a bluewater sailor so I'm not the best one to answer. But, when you are out in the middle of the ocean and the s##t hit's the fan, you want something that is going to bring you home safely...

Re: Need advice on choosing a Boat

Do your research as to what qualifies as being a "Bluewater" boat as that is what you need to circumnavigate the world. A Hunter 290 doesn't qualify.

If you want to cruise around FL and do some...

Re: Couple and a toddler, which boat to look for?

Obviously, I'm biased, but a Catalina 34 with a wing keel would fit the bill. Definitely not a blue water boat, but island hopping where you are almost never more than a day, maybe two from the next...

Re: Columbia 28

I agree with those that suggest a surveyor and a haul out. The boat could have a badly blistered bottom and to correct that issue could easily cost thousands.
