Re: Mooring pendants

I know it's a bit late now as you've started cutting up toe rail!

I have a C&C 26 on a mooring now for about 12 years.
It's on a lake but we do get occasional very high wind and waves.

Re: Loose footed mains .. how much tack travel?

Rule of thumb is:
Max draft depth 12% (full sail; max power)
Flat sail draft depth 8% (flat sail; light air; depowered)

But if you use 12% to 0% that will give you all possible options.

Re: New main sail

What's the age of the boat got to do with it?

I've got a 50 year old house, but I put a new roof on it a couple of years ago!

Re: New main sail

It's a sailboat!
New sails are the best investment you can make to substantially change the sailing charachteristics of your boat.
If you've been sailing around with 20; 30 or 40 year old sails,...

Re: All you "Riggers" out there

I replaced all the standing rigging on my CnC 26 2 seasons ago.
All new swaged on fittings and turnbuckles - $1,200 the lot.
A 30 footer can't be that much more.
My old shrouds and stays looked a...

Re: New Main Sail for a Good Ol' Boat, who has em?

Join the C&C forum.
Not the forum that's on the site.
There is an email forum - I think it's down the left hand side.
Most everyone with a 34 (except you!) is on there.

Re: Preventing spade rudder line fouling?

My C&C came standard with a 1/4"? rod about 3" long just in front of the spade rudder, sticking down from the hull. Effectively shuts out access to the rudder/hull gap. Just as RichH describes.

Re: Anegada chart

iNavX or iSailor.
I have both and they work good.
If you're looking for a paper chart - I can't help, but someone will be along shortly.

Re: hull and deck no core?

The first cored, fiberglass boat is generally believed to be "Red Jacket" - a 40 ft, 1966 C&C.
So it would be very unlikely that your boat, built in 1966 would also have a core so soon after this....

Re: sewing sunbrella

Thread - Polyester:
V69 use a #16 needle
V92 use a #20 needle
Tenara PTFE thread will last forever, but pricy.

Re: Sewing machine corner

I use double sided tape a lot.
It takes the place of the pins my wife uses with her home sewing. I never use pins, they are very hard to use with even a few thicknesses of canvas.

Re: Sewing machine corner

I run a one man sail repair and canvas business. It pays for my sailing trips!
The business is seasonal - there are currently ice boats on the lake - I do get a few ice boat sail repairs though!

Re: Is there a professional sailmaker on this forum?

...and the outhaul controls draft depth, not sail shape. It's not a substitute for the mainsheet. This might contribute to your premature mainsail delamination if the sail has been flogging a lot....
