I don't know, unscrew and remove the '\', and the 'a' will drain out?

Re: Low Rider

Personally, I don't think this is too complicated. Take everything off you can, and put everthing that can't be taken off forward. Remember the effect of weight of an item going from back to front...

Re: Cheapo water tanks

That might work, if it was the right size. Maybe if you have access to a bunch of them, you could make a pontoon boat. That would be kind of kool.

Re: Mast crutch for 14' trailer sailer

My trailer sailer has a mast crutch that is made out of plywood. It just slips between the seats against the inside of the transom. There is a cut out in the middle. I happen to have a big ring on...

Re: Best Spots on the Great Lakes for family cruisers.

PuraVida, when you get back, let us know how it went (and remember, if there aren't pictures, it didn't happen). :)

BTW, are you a Tico?

Re: Suggestions for 28-32 cruiser?

A lot of newer boats have sugar scoop transoms. This makes boarding after swimming easier. However, newer boats tend to be more expensive.

Re: Tiller or Wheel for Solo?

Second the opinion that some wheels look really hard to get out from behind. At the other extreem, there is a boat in my yard that has the wheel snugged up near the companion way. Would be a PITA...

Re: How big is too big for one man?

Where those that sail larger boats are relying on more and more mechanisms to make sailing possible (electric winches, windlass, etc).

Re: As long as the boat is out of the water . . .

You will not be able to sand the bottom (many days), repair blisters (at least one day), put multiple layers of sealant (multiple days), and bottom paint (a day), in 6 days of working. Not to...

Re: Sail doesn't fit boom

Thanks for the input everyone. I like the idea of an additional cringle on the foot, near the tack. The way things are now, I do have a couple of inches to tighten the foot. How much does the...

Re: Sailing around the world on a Catalina 22 sailboat

The C22 basically turns into dinghy sailing above about 20kt. You either need your hand on the tiller, or the mainsheet, or both, at all times. I sold my C22 to a guy in Minnesota who managed to...

Sail doesn't fit boom

I have a Bristol 27. It was originally sold with a roller furling boom. It is common to find these boats with the boom replaced (for slab reefing). This is the case on my boat. However, the boom...

Re: Single line reefing question

See Knuterikt's setup in this thread (is actually for a cunningham, I think):

Re: Danforth mount?

I have seen some secured to the rail with two loops of rope. If they are the right width, the bars on the anchor will slip into the loops, and secure the anchor. To remove, pull the loop off one...

Re: Bottom Paint Removal - Scraping or Chemical?

To add to SeaChanger's question: If using a tungsten/carbide scraper, is it a good idea to dress the edges a bit so they don't leave gouges? I think scraping is the way to go, too. However, on my...

Re: Tayana 37: Coamings cut off - is this repairable?

I am in the camp that says, any boat has a value... it may be negative. If not, and you want a project, offer what you think it is worth (maybe a lot less than 30k for a hacked up boat on a lake).

Re: Tayana 37: Coamings cut off - is this repairable?

I think this post should be re-named, 'WTF'. That is one of the stranger things I have seen done to a boat. Like others said, I would be really worried about other strange DIY projects on board.

Re: solid glass deck?

I agree with tommays. If you made it strong enough, it would be heavy. However, your solution also begs a question: Why make the repair at all? The deck is probably strong enough, even with mash...

Re: What is this?

Well, I think since JBallou said it was holding down the staysail stay, that is probably what it was used for. The question is, what are the blocks and line for? My guess is that they wanted to be...
