Re: in mast furling issue

Loosen the vang if you have one. A winch shouldn't be needed to unfurl as you stated. See what you can discover by pulling on the clew by hand. It's often a WTF moment. And then it the geometry of it...

Re: Seldon In-mast furler

The winch on the mast is mostly just a back up should the furling line break or come loose off the drum. You can also lock it so it can't unfurl if you have reefed. Though if you try to winch at the...

A happy dog overboard story

Today we were sailing around the Toronto Island when I came up a dog crossing my bow. He had a red lifejacket on.

He had apparently jumped overboard without the owners knowing. We circled and...

Re: Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

Re: Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

Hi Drake,

Great stuff as always. I love the footage.

Couple of thoughts; I wouldn't overdo the cross dissolves. Part of what makes your videos so engaging is watching the thought process, sans...

Stern to docking with swim platform?

Looking at a Sailtime membership with a new Hunter with drop down swim platform. I have previously docked an H33 and H36 stern to with the small drop seat, but I was wondering how that works with a...

Re: " All Is Lost" movie

Just saw it. It struck me as being done on the cheap actually. If a tv show like the Deadliest Catch can give you shots of boats in the Bering Sea, you would think a Hollywood movie could at least do...

Re: Learning to dock shorthanded

Boat is a 2006, Hunter 36 for reference to my question.

It may sound like a simple question, but where should spring lines be placed when backing in? I wonder if it will work at all, given that...

Re: Fishing

In light wind days, we'll troll for salmon and trout in Lake Ontario. I use a 10' trolling rod with a dipsy diver that gets the lure down to about 70 feet. The hard part is keeping the boat around...

Re: All is Lost

I think they chose S.O.S over Mayday was because the non boating public probably thinks Mayday is strictly used for Airplane emergencies.

Re: "Paying" friends wanting to go on the boat.

If the boat is clean, operable and reliable, you may be able to sell 2 or 3 seasonal shares for it.

Re: The danger of GPS as the sole means of navigation.

My iPhone is a whole lot easier to understand than my chartplotter, which I have given up on.

I would love to know how to use paper charts better, but I don't believe there is any formal teaching...

Re: Emergency leak repair

One handed bar clamps. Most are reversible to function as spreaders, so you can apply pressure against a repair, assuming you have an opposing structure to brace against. 12' to 50"

Re: No Sea Trial

You must be able to learn something from a sea trial. I have no problem compensating someone for their time if I request a sea trial. I would think $200 would be appropriate for an hour on the water....
