Re: fs14_ls in the midwest

Nothing on a boat stays dry. Assume water will get into every crevice that is not permanently sealed.

That’s what an old sailor told me once. So far nothing has proven him wrong.

Re: AD16 sail costs? Marconi vs Chinese lug

Do some research on how to sail lugs. There’s a lot of positives to it. I’ve not sailed a lug but there’s no real reason not to consider it. In my research the savings was in rigging and “total sail” required. You have less standing rigging and only the main. While the cost of mains (Marconi main v ...

Re: AD16 sail costs? Marconi vs Chinese lug

Go to a marina or yacht club. There will be sailmakers in the advertisement board. Just ask a staff member where that is. I’d expect the junk sail to be a bit more than Marconi. Especially if you make it “disassemble for reefing” vs standard reefing (not sure the correct term for the reefing method ...

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

I'm big on "some alone time" but I'm not sure I'm in for ~300 days of it. I haven't read the rules completely, but I'm wondering if you can take a dog or other pet to at least add some level of external contact. That is often a way to help mitigate the loneliness.

Re: AD16 sail costs? Marconi vs Chinese lug

Are you lugging it?

You should be able to take the specs from the plans and get a local sail shop to quote one for you. Or maybe I'm thinking of the marconi.

Re: GV11 help request

Maybe for the next high speed run you could get someone to video it................just saying :lol: :P There are drones with a "follow target" feature. Maybe Jeff should invest in one and send it to all the splash parties. I know mine would have been... entertaining (even with the large amount of ...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

RTV should be easy to clean off if used "correctly"... 1. Paint your surface and cure (which is what you planned, right?) 2. lay bead on fixed surface 3. let sit a few minutes. 4. lay mating surface 5. bolt down To clean use alcohol or acetone (i like MEK but... paint does not). If you did the prope...
