Re: Pocket Cruiser

Welcome! The Sanibel 18 sounds like a fun boat. I'm currently restoring a Montgomery 15.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I never knew it was the drawings rather than the yachts that makes one a yacht designer. When I was a kid I was always drawing boats in class... I guess that makes me a yacht designer?

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Just a miscommunication, I've never heard of the word "refrigeration" used to refer to the engine cooling system, but only systems for keeping food or crew cold.

I do personally prefer to not have...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I'm glad refrigeration works for you, and I certainly wouldn't turn down a cold beer in the anchorage if you offered me one.

If you're really interested here's why I don't personally want a fridge...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

It sounds like your friend needs to learn about the value of simplicity. IF he had built a simple boat without so many unnecessary systems, he wouldn't have so much to repair and maintain....

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

This is only a consequence of a philosophy of disposability... people don't maintain their stuff and it deteriorates until they replace it. If a machine is inspected and maintained rigorously, it...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I'll look into the Wasser Tar... that sounds like exactly what I need! It looks like they also have a cold galvanizing pre-coat designed to work with the Wasser Tar (aka Wasser Zinc).

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Yes, I was intentionally making a broad generalization.

While there are many individual exceptions, the point is that this would be one method to make sure that you know your boat before heading...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Thanks Brent. Have you ever looked into moisture cured urethane as opposed to epoxy tar? I'm really confused about the relative merits of the two, but I've had good luck with urethane before on a...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I'm not trying to preach about what anybody should be doing, just making an observation.

That's a pretty personal decision, and you're right- nobody could realistically know everything that they...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Well we have a difference of opinion, but certainly yours is more common. I tend to think things can go wrong anywhere, and any boat leaving the dock should be prepared for almost anything.

I was defending unorthodox methods which work. It's not exactly unorthodox if you have a long list of famous people already doing it!

Re: Educated decision.

The free mooring is a pretty darn good opportunity to leverage into cheap boating, most people need to choose between maintaining a trailer vs slip fees.
