Re: Luger Voyager 30

Good luck Josh and keep cool when looking at the boat. The real cost is not in buying a boat, but in fixing and keeping it on an annual basis. It can be a lot of fun, but it can also be frustrating...

Re: This is for everyone who gave the Flyin' Hawaiian a hard time....

Great story of the nicely designed raft and old men still up to awesome adventures. They were lucky not to have run into major storms.

Re: Luger Voyager 30

2 Grand is a very fair price for project grade Luger 30. But expect to spend a lot more to make it safe and sea worthy. Great design for gunkholing and if properly outfitted, also for coastal sailing.

Re: New 1984 oday 26 advice

I would calculate fuel use as 1.25 gallon per hour, 4 mph speed on 60 mile distance. That is 18.75 gallons. If you run into a chop, adverse wind, etc. that could double. Check out in advance the...

Re: Can bleach damage FRP

Vinegar will ultimately just provide more food for microbes, as it is organic in nature. I would just use bleach.

Re: Hydrogen sulfide removial from glass

Yes, hydrogen peroxide might work, but I'm afraid the 3% stuff from a drugstore might be too weak. But it is worth a try - has to be a good soaking, and you need to remove all traces of solvent from...

Re: If I were young......

For 23 grand you can get a lot better Westsail. One that actually sails.
If I was young again, I would likely follow the same path I have taken.

Re: Draft-constrained marina

What kind of sailing do you want to do? Daysailing only? Sailing solo or with a crew? How about a catamaran, like Hobie 16?

Re: Islander 32

Looks like a nice boat, reasonably priced. I would have it surveyed prior to purchase, especially since you are relatively new to sailing. Good thing it has a shallow draft - you will be happy with...

Re: advice -- swing keel vs water ballast vs fixed keel

Good point. But the shipping of these boats is relatively cheap.

Re: Father and son sailing

The smaller the boat, the easier and faster it is to launch. But stability is important. Hunter 170 would fit the bill just fine. Unsinkable, easy to sail. Get the smallest outboard possible (2 HP...

Re: advice -- swing keel vs water ballast vs fixed keel

Another option might be a twin keel boat, like the Westerly Centaur. They are made specifically for the conditions you describe. Not very expensive, sail reasonably well, and are very seaworthy.

Re: Adventure sailboat build help, recomendations?

Boats like O'day 22 will plane with larger motor, going faster then theory suggests. But going faster means using a lot more fuel. I would use a 5 HP motor to save fuel. It will still give you enough...

Anytime, Scott. I have messed about in sailboats for many years, bought, restored, and sold several of them. I have also done long kayaking trips down river. I'll be happy to share what I know. Keep...

Re: Adventure sailboat build help, recomendations?

Hi Scott, sounds like a fun adventure! :)
Any sailboat with a swing keel and minimal ballast would work for you. O'Day 22 would be a very good choice. Almost all sailboats of that type have a very...

Ranger 32 is likely one of the best boats in the Ranger line, with better then average build quality and very good design. I almost bought one of them a while back. They are relatively rare on the...

Re: Challenger 15

No great mystery about raising main sail.
1. Unhook the halyard from the boom's end. Let the boom rest in the cockpit
2. Attach the halyard to the head of the sail
3. Feed the sail into the track...

Mars, as Terry said, plug in the drainage holes when sailing and take a small bucket with you for bailing. I use a scoop made from a large juice jug (I cut the top to make the hole bigger and keep...

I pity the fool who calls my boat a 'yacht', and me a 'yachtsman'.
