Re: Luger Voyager 30

Actually looks a substantial vessel, from a decent designer even if she won't be the 'prettiest girl at the dance'..

Finish quality is always going to be the big variable with what were...

Re: Re power choices for Sweden 36

Not a Volvo fan.. for many reasons, parts and sooty/smoky operation when cold.. Think it would come down to Beta/Kubota or Yanmar.. whichever was the fewer required mods.

Re: Tayana 55 Shoal Draft

No direct experience, but I'd expect the designers took much of your concerns into consideration at the time - and if you're not racing then you'll likely never notice the difference, nor care....

Re: Dinghy theft protection

Re: Setting up a spinnaker

Very important to add a bridle to the downhaul.. esp if the downhaul attachment point is mid-pole. The loads on the downhaul can be significant and that loaded centerpoint can lead to a pole with a...

Re: Setting up a spinnaker

When he said he had a pole stored on the mast I made the leap to symmetrical!

Otherwise, as usual, good post ;)

Re: Setting up a spinnaker

Sounds like an 'end for end' pole.. a pic would be helpful.

If it is, then you don't really need double sheets and guys, saving you quite a bit of coin. You will need a pole lift and a...

Re: Dinghy theft protection

Somewhat related to another recent thread, don't leave anything especially tempting in the dinghy if you don't want to lose it (inflatable collar PFDs, eg.) We take the safety toggle with us if the...

Re: Would it be feasible to put a sail on this boat

That shape would have some form stability but without ballast under sail it won't be enough. The bigger issue will likely be the tendency to 'skate downwind' with no keelplan to resist that, and...

Re: Tayana 37 vs Corbin 39

Was the Corbin factory or owner finished? Many of them were sold as hull & deck kits. Even if a master joiner bought a kit some of the non-woodwork aspects of the rest of the boat should be carefully...

Re: The four sails

What you've labeled the 'main' actually looks quite 'new'. It seems to have batten pockets but looks almost more like a jib with it's limited roach.

You likely don't have a 'staysail', probably 2...

Re: 1971 Cal 27(Jense mar) RIGGING

The track up the front of the mast, with the ring fitting on it is for your spinnaker pole.. it's meant to move up and down to 'level' the pole depending on the conditions and how 'high' the...

Re: 1971 Cal 27(Jense mar) RIGGING

It looks like you got an older headfoil setup.. but not roller furling.

The two hooks are 'tack hooks', the tack cringle on the headsail is meant to go onto those hooks. There are two of them so...

Re: Martinique: Sail North or South?

I'd go North.. Les Saintes, Marie Galante, Pigeon Beach (snorkeling), Des Haise - a bit more variety close at hand, I think... and as mentioned Dominica is special too. (rent a car if you dare ;))

Re: Lady author, lady heroine - Night Watch by Linda Hall

Quite enjoyed 'Night Watch'. Nice to read a book with a strong boating/sailing aspect that wasn't full of unlikely/impossible events and bad terminology.

And a properly 'slimey' bad guy too!! Well...

There is a wide variety of turnbuckle styles and configuration.
