I used some to put a pair of blocks on the genoa tracks. It does slip, but I just put glue on the knot. If I need to take the blocks off I'll just cut it. As for knots weakening the line, some are...

I just received documentation that was sent on April 23rd. I'm not sure what happened but it is a little odd. I had already received a second copy that they sent. It came in two days. Total time...

I will be removing and replacing some deck/hole bolts. These are bolts that physically hold the hull to the deck. Would butyl tape be the right thing for this job or do I need something with some...

A courtesy inspection would probably be a good idea for a new boat. As for the numbers on the bow...I grew up in a sailing family on the Chesapeake. That was through the sixties. I haven't sailed...

Is it illegal to put documentation numbers on the bow of a boat? I would think that if you have no numbers there you'll get boarded by every yahoo that sees you.

I just received my documentation. I was pretty shocked to see that the vessel has to be PERMANENTLY marked on the INSIDE of the hull with 3 inch letters. Years ago I believe that everyone just put...

I can't say I feel more secure with life lines. I'm pretty tall and they hit me right around the knee. If I loose my balance and hit the life line I am going head overheels overboard no question....

Hmmm, I was thinking that Radio didn't really need GPS for anything crushingly important, but I guess it does for many of its nice features that I really want, like the collision alarm. Tell me this,...

I was hoping that the 2150 would send both GPS and AIS so I could use just one serial/Bluetooth. I think the beast solution is probably to get a separate bluetooth GPS receiver and then sell the...

It looks like the GX 2150 will not output GPS data as well as AIS. Is that correct? It would be nice if I could use my old, (otherwise pretty useless chartplotter) as a GPS receiver which sends GPS...

By the Ideal Gas Law a mole of gas occupies 22.4 liters. So when a mole of liquid water, which is about 18 milliliters, boils and becomes gas it suddenly occupies 22.4 liters. That's an expansion of...
