  4. Seamanship & Navigation
    Happy Monday everyone! I have been sailing for about 3 years now, and usually with 22ft boats. I am currently away from my sailing center and with this time off from sailing, I'd like to increase my knowledge about sailing. I've been reading some books, but I don't think these reads really...

  12. Gear & Maintenance
    I had some great success with this so I thought I'd share! My goal was to create bright, efficient, and more importantly, inexpensive lighting for my sailing dinghy without dropping in a 12V lead acid battery for incandescent bulbs. Here's what I used (besides tools): Attwood 3121 navigation...
