  1. How to track maintenance?

    Gear & Maintenance
    So for years I didn't adequately track the maintenance that I did on my boat, and then subsequently did an inadequate job keeping a list in a physical log book. When I went to sell my prior boat, I found that I had to try to figure it all out, and it wasn't easy. Now, with a new boat, I'm...

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    HELP! So I'm brand new to sailing and I've been looking for a 'cheap-ish' drysuit for the next cold weather season. I found what I think is a fairly good deal for a "Gul Infra Drysuit Front Zip (no suspenders) - Navy / Silver LARGE" . However, I've never heard of Gul and no one on my sailing...

  6. To Dodger or not to dodger

    Gear & Maintenance
    Hello all, I recently bought an islander 30 mk ii ( last fall) and it came with a stainless dodger frame but no actual dodger. Everytime I walk in my barn I look at it and wonder if it is worth the time to make one or have one made. I can't make the decesion because I've talked to people who...
