Re: Question for sail boat guys!

Feels like that guy standing in line with the capstan is taking a really big risk. But maybe I'm just a bit frightened of large chunks of metal moving at high rates of speed.

Re: skeg on d15

the standard seems to be 1. during assembly, use screws to ensure proper placement during test fitting 2. glue down with thickened epoxy using screws to index skeg to correct location. make sure to wax coat screws for easy removal. 3. once glue has set, remove screws, then over drill and fill screw ...

Re: Question for sail boat guys!

This is back to our argument about foils :) I completely understand. But I much prefer the "it's all rode" argument to the chain v rode. That and I haven't stick beat anyone in a while and that particular individual ... I'd enjoy it immensely. Too me the veer and backed argument should be relative t...

Re: Question for sail boat guys!

Well, you'd probably survive... Ties are things you wear. The rhode is the rope part. The chain is ... anchor chain. if they really wanted to do you in, they would "lash" you to the chain. Personally, I'd use a running bowline to make the first loop fast around you, then a icicle hitch to keep you t...

Re: Question for sail boat guys!

Re: Question for sail boat guys!

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Glad to hear you and Mrs you are in the same place with this. If been in the other arena where my “thing” is the end of the world for her and vice-versa. Always much easier when y’all are seeing things the same way. That insurance thought makes me happy. I’d hate to think how much a repair of that s...
