re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

And to add to the conversation, don't jump into the "electric propulsion" idea right off the bat. Not to think for others, but I'd at least be willing to wager that after a year you'll find yourself...

Re: What is this Item, See Picture (below) ?

Not sure what it is, but I'm almost positive my neighbor has one on his Islander. At least from 50' away it looks just like it.

Re: Irwin 52' video. You gotta' see this...

Good use of a necro-bump on this thread. Otherwise, I would've missed it. Wow, Oceanaire.....just, wow! That boat of yours is absolutely stunning. Naysayers be damned, but any person that puts...

Re: Advice on Buying Mulit Unit vs Separate Items

Sounds to me like the real key to this discussion is "back-ups". Multi or stand-alone...either way if only "part" of the system fails, you're still without that function. I like the "neatness" of a...

Re: Medicine at Sea advice

Default to the good Doctor above, of course, but I'd add "dealing with a concussion" to his list. That swinging boom in an accidental gybe is a real fear, and dealing with the aftermath is something...

Re: Universal 5432 Throttle Set Up

My Universal was setup the same way with a separate kill cable to a push/pull knob that stopped the fuel flow. The throttle was adjusted from idle to WOT with no "pull back to kill" available. That...

Re: Woodworking advice needed

Odds are you'd need to remove it and then replace it to cut a scarf joint. A lot depends on how good you are with a small skill saw, and do you even have access to it. If it's not part of the...

Re: Meanwhile on the other coast...

Nothing wrong with a little distraction. All bad news can't be good for anybody.

Still pretty windy down here in west central Florida. I imagine we're still feeling lingering effects of Sandy,...

Re: Need Some Advice on (6) Mo. Provisioning

Since you'll be spending a lot of time sailing down the West Florida coast, why not make a stop or two along the way? Tons of places to pull in and hit the local Publix or Save-A-Lot for restocking?...

Re: If you don't're a freakin' moron.

Smackdaddy, I'm not 100% clear on what your true feelings are about sailing. Try to not be so "elusive" with your opinions next time, ok?

Re: Woodworking advice needed

It really is all about the photos in this case. Plus, how important is the finished look? Hard to imagine, but if at least one side of it "won't show" so-to-speak, you can use epoxy and then put a...

Re: Hard choices..

Dang, talk about the textbook example of using "liveaboard" as another word for "escapism". The thing about running away from your problems is they always find a way to keep up. Get some help for...

re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

Neighbor has the Islander 28 and it's a really nice boat. Having said that, current condition and PO's schedule of maintenance is key here. I, for one, think there's a very large difference in the...

Re: i need help bad

Not speaking for anyone but myself, but the "negativity" comes from Huck not seeking the advice and counsel of his parents, since he's a minor, and instead, going around them to garner the same from...

Re: Removing Can Labels for roaches or bugs?

Seems like if a person sprayed his/her boat for bugs, like they would do for their home, a person would be just fine. Assuming, of course, that those same folks realized their environment and that...

Re: i need help bad

Huck, helping out others isn't the "maturity" that Chef2Sail is talking about. You need to be getting your father involved in this latest "crisis" and follow whatever he tells you. Trying to avoid...

Re: The Trouble With Columbias

Let's say a guy, a "friend" of mine, for conversation sake, was looking at a Columbia 8.7. We'll say, again to keep the story flowing, that he doesn't have a 'lot' of sailing experience, having...

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I've put boats in my wife's name when she didn't even realize it. I'd think the "legaleeze" is not the relevant point.

Re: Quality of boats that sit vs sail

Sitting at a dock full time or constantly out sailing are neither factors in condition, as much as the previous owner him/herself was/is. The key is how they maintained the vessel. Plenty boats...

Re: Still confused about water ballast

You can't overlook the fact that water-ballast, in the case of these trailerables is all about convenience not performance. In essence, MacGregor isn't saying that water ballast is preferable, but...

Re: Buying a 30-40 year old boat - your opinions

Re: Newb Question

Just to interject a smidge; price difference is not aesthetic alone in most cases. If that were the case, the more expensive model boats would've long been out of business. Material quality, and...
