Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

Charleston is a wonderful town, I've spent years there, but, fair warning, the job market there can be difficult. It definitely depends on what you want to do, but for a lot of fields, finding a...

Re: Blister Repair Conundrum

The most complete way to eliminate them is peel and let the boat dry for several months. If you plan on hauling out for the winter, then I'd just wait and do it then.

If you pay someone to just...

Re: Last one for tonight. Tiller pilots

It's worth pointing out that no unit will overcome poor sail trim. If you trim your sails and just assume the autopilot will handle it, then you are gonna have issues. I usually trim our sails with...

Re: Help me figure out what kind of boat I want.

Cape Dory made wonderful boats and did many things well, wiring wasn't one of them. Fortunately, the smaller boats are simple enough that it's not a huge deal, but some of the wiring in ours was...

Re: Sorry, you are about to get slammed. First question: bowsprit

Ask on the Cape Dory board, someone there may have drawings or recommendations. I know this one isn't the first to need a new bowsprit.

Re: Liberty 28

There are 3 in the Melbourne area, at least. Pretty boats.

Re: 50' Motor Cruiser, powered by 2 6hp outboards.

Pretty sure I saw this boat for sale on Craigslist a few months ago

Re: Husband fell in love with an 1978 Ericson Mark II 35.5

It's relative.

In this case, the question was (more or less) a comparison of diesel and gas. In the case of gasoline, special care needs to be taken in boat construction, maintenance, monitoring,...

Re: Husband fell in love with an 1978 Ericson Mark II 35.5

The point is risk reduction.

If I can choose between a gas engine, which has a higher risk of safety issues, or diesel, I'll choose diesel. You can't deny or argue that gas engines have a...

Re: Husband fell in love with an 1978 Ericson Mark II 35.5

The value of the boat will go up with a diesel, but it won't increase by the value of the labor and diesel you put in. If you plan on keeping the boat for a long time, then the investment can even...

Re: $1500 Catalina 27

You'll probably invest more in the boat that it ends up being worth, especially if it has an Atomic 4. You'll hear a lot of responses from people that say they love theirs, but when you turn around...

Re: Another fatal attempt at "Youngest to circumnavigate"

The loss of suction would also cause the autopilot to fail, if they have the KFC-200 that is normal in that era A36, which takes input from the AI.

That said, I'd be surprised if they took that...

My CFI used to do that too, then cover up the attitude indicator and make me recover with partial panel :(

Re: Building a Quality Boat from a Bare Hull - What's Involved and $$

I evaluated that boat too.

I like the Allegra 24 and the boat you listed definitely caught my eye, but it's not a boat for someone that wants to sail it right away or can't do the work...

Re: Hunter loses rudder

One of the reasons we're rebuilding ours is because we dropped the rudder for unrelated repairs and found the 1 1/2'' shaft to be eaten through with corrosion and filled with seawater. We estimated <...

Re: Weird weird july weather.....

Re: Sledgehammer saga continues

Get a quote from someone on a new rudder, I'd wager it'll be two to three times that much, if not more. On our 30ft boat with a new 1 1/2'' shaft, new foam, glass, it's coming to around $1500 in...

Re: Cutless Bearing Sledge Hammer Installation

This kind of stuff boils my blood.

Re: Blistering

Try Interlux Watertite for filling the blisters, it's a lot easier to fair than silica and can be used below the waterline

Re: Interior space Catalina27 vs Alberg30

Personally, I've found most of the Alberg designs to be really small inside compared to their length.

We owned a Cape Dory 27 and one of the main reasons we moved to another boat was because the...

That's a small percentage of the ditch, the rest is a narrow and shallow mudhole filled with bugs.
