Re: Stinky Foul Weather Gear

A lot of dive shops in FL that rent wetsuits swear by our disinfectant / deodorizer OdoBan Eucalyptus scent. They dilute it at about 1 oz/gallon and soak the wetsuits in it after each rental, then...

Re: Bilge cleaner

If the stuff has orange oil - (chemical called d-limonene ) - then it can attack and weaken or melt some plastics and rubbers. My company makes some cleaning products with d-limonene in them as...

Re: US, Cuba seek to normalize relations - Sailing Related

Very true, but don't expect that to last long at all. I suspect that discount department stores will be the second ones to storm the beach - just after the first-wave resorts have paid enough wages...

Re: Derelict Catalina22 value? (bottom feeding content)

LOL. I thought about that, but it's too damn big and has none of the charm. I thought about turning it into a play pirate ship for a local playground, but the liability makes that a no-go.

Re: Place to buy solid wood tillers

That's what I'm using on my Vagabond (Holder) 14. Hickory axe handle from Lowe's. Works great although I think I will thin out the tip a little this winter for better ergonomics. Could be a little...

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Okay, I had a BFS this weekend. Well, actually, it's a small freakin sail to anyone else, but I just started sailing. This was my third time actually taking a boat out. I've had no training, but I...

Re: Derelict Catalina22 value? (bottom feeding content)

I stopped by and took another look at her. The hull has taken some serious damage along the deck-to-hull joint on the port side - the rub rail is missing, the joint is frighteningly wavy (like +-...

Re: Derelict Catalina22 value? (bottom feeding content)

Yeah, that's kind of what I'm hoping. I don't really have the funds to hang on a project like this over the time frame it would take to disassemble and sell the stuff.

My other lurking thought...

Derelict Catalina22 value? (bottom feeding content)

There's a home in my neighborhood with a Cat22 sitting out back on a trailer. It's been there since I move to the neighborhood almost 13 years ago and it's never moved. The house recently got...

Re: Turning turtle

If in doubt, tie an empty milk jug or a 2 liter soda bottle to the top of the mast. Not sexy, but dead cheap and effective.

Re: AMF Puffer Restoration

I've got no advice on the Puffer specifically, but I've found that DuckWorks Boat Builder Supplies is a good, reasonably priced source for hardware that works on smaller boats. They have smaller...

I have no experience with the Boat in question, but...

Re: What do you do for food on a day cruise?

sandwich from the deli in the grocery mega store, bag of trail mix, couple of beers. But I only have a 14' boat. No room for anything else.

I love to cook, though, and one day will have a boat...

Re: Mast crutch for 14' trailer sailer

I thought about the roof rack, even to the point of fabbing bolt on side mounts like I use for my bikes. The rack is only 5' front to back, though, leaving over 7' on each end unsupported on the 20'...
