Re: Raw water pump...what's normal?

Re: packing gland

You should be able to locate a replacement hose without too much trouble. Make sure you have the correct ID and length. Give Defender customer service a call.

Re: mystery item from rigging

It looks to me like a small ss ball with a spring underneath would go in the detent. Pin would slide into the mating piece and the ball would snap in hold it in position. The question still...

Re: New Jersey sailing

A little more information would be helpful. As has been mentioned, where in NJ do you live and where would you like to sail? By weekender, do you mean a small cruising sailboat with a cabin? I...

Re: TV antennas

Part of the issue with satellite TV on a boat is that you need to point towards the satellite and the boat moves except in a marina. So you need an expensive antenna that tracks the satellite, not...

Re: Trouble pointing in Alerion 28

I sail pretty often on a friend's A28. It definitely goes upwind very nicely. He races it and does pretty well. I don't remember a lot of mast rake, so that would be the first thing to look at.

Re: Refinishing loop rails

I had some very tough spots that did not respond to a second application of stripper. The heat gun worked fine. Had no troubles with scorching.

Re: Water heater needed

Note you are going to need a good sized generator to run those. If you try to run those with an inverter off the house bank, they will pull 100-200 amps DC when on. FWIW we put a long hose on our...

Re: Refinishing loop rails

Good point about aggressive sanding and the suggestion of Citrustrip. When I redid my peeling varnished teak last spring, I used Citrustrip first, then a heat gun to get the stubborn areas, then...

Re: Refinishing loop rails

I redid all my outside teak last spring (toe rails, entryway trim, etc.) with Cetol Natural Teak. I like it a lot. Look is VERY close to varnished teak and looks like it will hold up much better...

Re: Scum and Stain Removal from Hull

Rubber gloves and eye projection. All you need is a little poured in a small plastic cup, paint in on, wait 30 seconds, and rinse. Easy and fast. Oxalic acid is the same, you just have to wait a...

Re: Scum and Stain Removal from Hull

Surprised no one mention Marykate ON N' OFF. Sold in every marine store for just this purpose. It works somewhat faster than oxalic acid, but more pricey. I now use oxalic acid. About $5 for a...

Re: masthead sheaves

I've replaced original wire/rope halyards on my last two boats and didn't change the masthead sheaves. No issues noted. FWIW I used VPC on my current boat (Cal 33-2) and like it. Got it from...

Re: Water Heater: 5 or 6.5 Gallons?

I agree. Not much difference between 5 and 6.5 gallons. Enough for a (very) quick shower or two and washing few dishes.

When cruising in the summer, I supplement the hot water heater with a...

Re: *** Marine Battery Use Survey ***

Completed. Happy to give back a little for all you contribute to this forum.

Re: RF Main pros and cons

Re: Coastal cruising equipment and accessories

Re: FWC kit for Atomic 4, a good idea?

Re: mainsail cover

If you do go the premade route, I would buy it long. Should give you more room to fit your newer bulky sail and you can always shorten the aft end easily.

Re: Using Reef Balls to make a mooring?

I think you mean 10 lbs per foot of length. I doubt a 20 foot boat would need a 2000lb mushroom.
