Re: Do I need new sails

I will caution again about sailing with rotted sails. They can look ok and sail just fine in light to medium winds. However, if you get caught out when the wind whips up with blustery gusts over 25...

Re: Solo Climbing the Mast- Block and Tackle

I have stay set x for halyards. Put the climber on the main and the Prussic on the jib. Both are 3/8 inch. Did not use any braided eyes or shackles, just a bowline on bitter end of the main and used...

Re: Solo Climbing the Mast- Block and Tackle

When using the ATN top climber, I set a second halyard and rigged a safety line from the bosun chair to the second halyard with a prussic sliding knot. Slows you down but improves safety.

Re: New to this forum... not new to sailing

That looks like one fun boat to sail. Even more parts and pieces to play with. Good luck finding crew. You might get lucky and find some compatible soul that wants to learn how to sail and your boat...

Re: Do I need new sails

There is not enough wind in these photos to see accurately the condition of your sails. But I say don't fret about it but start saving for new sails and replace them when you have to. It took me...

Re: Chesapeake Bay Anchor Holding Power test

Re: Completed 4th recent Cape May trip

Nice boat. Great trip, one I wanted to take when I lived there, but at 22 ft., thought better of it. Most I ever did was Toms River to Shady Side.

I asked this in his other tread "furler". He answered no, they did not. Seeing would be believing though. I think we may be dealing with some dyslexia or other communication problem.
