Re: Living Aboard MacGregor26

I sailed a Venture 24 for years including crossings to Catalina and eventually some short point to point ocean races. knockdowns are a fact of life on a boat that light but she would bounce right...

Re: The impossible happened

The president of Schaefer Marine is a dock mate. He ripped me a new one one day when he noticed I was hoisting a crew member up the mast with a halyard and snap shackle..., he didn't notice the back...

Re: Smallest boat you can live with

I could be perfectly happy cruising short distances on my Cal 25. It has a dedicated galley and a small head with a flushing toilet so I don't have the "Camping" feel of dragging everything out of...

Re: Dead batteries?

Was your multi meter reading DC? If you don't switch over from AC you will get screwy reading.

Re: Teak project started

Nice work Sabreman.

I have plenty of varnish on the boat. The head is finished with Captain's varnish as are some of the high use areas. The head had some mold growth and it wiped off with no...

Re: What material is best for boat yards?

3/4" crush. It's very angular, has lots of fines and compacts very well. It holds up to traffic and because it compacts so well it doesn't tend to "Kick Up".

This is what I found last weekend, a couple of weeks after a major storm.

Re: Teak project started

Beware of Minwax Wipe on Poly. It grows mold and mildew in damp environments like it was designed to.

Re: Teak project started

Spar urethane is very durable and can be built up very fast due to quick drying. For the last coat or two you may want to use a traditional varnish with better UV inhibitors or the urethane can turn...

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

Finally had a chance to watch the movie. It was about as technically accurate as any movie I've seen lately. I always have to turn part of my brain off, which I did with this one before hitting...

Re: Anyone know the make of this sailboat?

Two weekends ago we had a beautiful sail on a light wind day, 5-8kn, and were at near hull speed all day. Our neighbor was also out in his hunter 45. When I asked him how his sail went he said "Non...

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

Haven't seen the movie yet but was at a film festival a couple of weeks ago where he discussed the movie. Apparently at 78? years old he did a lot of the underwater stunts himself. He also put a...

Re: Spinnaker sheet lengths

One and a half times boat length and a diameter that is comfortable to the hand. I use 3/8" New England VPC. It is a vectran core and polyester cover.

Re: Any safe way to buy a boat when neither of you live close?

It's less about the price and more about the potential liability. However, at less than 10k a broker would add significantly to the cost. I like the idea of using an escrow company but have no idea...

Re: Any safe way to buy a boat when neither of you live close?

The simple answer is yes, if the boat warrants one, with a broker.

Re: Symmetric Rudder damage and surprise hardware!

The bolts are original and joined the rudder halves. Before removing them I would recommend talking to Gene Adams at Port Gardner Sailboats. Gene was a San Juan dealer and worked very closely with...

Re: Blotches on deck - can you identify

Are you by any chance downwind of a boatyard? Sanding dust from copper bottom paint turns decks funny colors after exposure to moisture from rain or dew.

BTW, the best (and cheapest) product for...

Re: prop wash

Wow, you guys are fast (or maybe I'm just slow). I feel like I'm in a texting conversation with my kids.

Bob has a point. When I took delivery of my current boat it had a three blade fixed prop...

Re: prop wash

Many boats suffer from prop walk and it can be very tricky to overcome. It occurs when water flowing past the hull has more effect on steering than the rudder.

Every hull reacts differently to...

Re: Fairing Compounds, what do "you" use?

Microspheres and cab-o-sil in about a 2:1 ratio with your favorite epoxy. The cab-o-sil (fumed silica) is the thickener and makes the epoxy very hard (nearly as hard as neat epoxy) if used alone. ...

Re: Thinking about dipping my boat in this

I've used it on exterior teak and the only trouble I've had was with lifting on the edges and darkening over time. It's very hard and wears great though.

Re: Stowing drop boards?

Good suggestion. Just be sure you add back the waste lost in the cutting or they may not fit right. I refinished mine last year, got a little too aggressive with the sander on the edges and opened a...
