Re: Pole end jamming

It seems every boat I have raced on suffers this same issue with the Spin pole jaws. The older they are the more finicky they are, even if "we just had it rebuilt last season."


We have WD-40...

Re: Finally some footage of me sailing

I think the comment was aimed at, "No serious PHRF racing boat is sporting dodger and cushions." But since you are racing in the bay or even outside the bay, in conditions that would send us...

Re: Results of the survey

I just sent an email to the surveyor to get the lowdown of what is expected and is acceptable to accomplish these repairs.

They are not as onerous I expected.

Re: Need Help with Neglected Boat

Seems like the best bet. Someone with more time and motivation may take it off your hand. If you 2-3 grand to spend and a free slip, you can be sailing this weekend on a boat ready to go.

Re: One day in Vancouver what to do?

Of course I had to look at the pictures of boats in the window. But that is just a pipe dream. I did not recognize most of the boats, except for a Macgregor 65, not among my lists of boats I'd like...

Re: One day in Vancouver what to do?

Spectacular.

The views in on the flight were awe inspiring. I looked at all the abundance of islands and bays to explore. Only had enough time to eat some greasey but great tasting noodles and...

Re: Good Small Boat for Older, Fatter Woman to learn on

Beat me to it. I got mine for $1000. It needed work but for $2-3000 you could get a nice one with trailer. You could rig it by yourself in 15 minutes. It will sail 2 people but also has a two...

Re: Are NADA Values accurate ?

I think the smaller the boat the less predictable the price. You can spend $500 for a C22 or $5000. Chances are the $5000 boat is a better deal.

Unless you are totally strapped for money at the...
