    Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    Back in the day, Ginger was something. But Ginger and Mary Ann didn't age the same: Of course, it seems that the boat in question seems to be named Mary Ann but aged a bit more like Ginger...

    The next project boat

    Congratulations! Mine is a Mk II - they're all great boats. You'll love it.

    Craigslist - Not mocking

    Interesting boat - the current owners haul her in the same yard that I do each winter, and I've seen her up close. The fog horns on the mizzen are pointed nearly exactly at the skipper's brain. But I dig the fully-battened mizzen - not the poor in-mast-furling roachless main. Very solid-looking boat.

    Coolboats to admire

    Bad phone camera photo. But interesting concept - a Whitebred 60 on the left, and America II on the right. And probably something cooler in the water in the background, but I was in a rush and didn't get out of the car to investigate.

    According to the C&C list guys, the state of the art is 3m VHB tape 1/2" and Dow 795 structural adhesive.

    C&C 36...will it float?

    The PO of Gemini made some changes before we bought her. 40 gal fresh water, and 80+ (!!!) holding tank. Really? Why do I need that much holding tank? Way too much work right now to even contemplate a change, however. I'd much rather have the ratio reversed.

    Craigslist - Not mocking

    In my totally uneducated opinion, $25k for a Concordia yawl is probably going to be super expensive, but $200k might be a good deal.

    The price may be mockable, but the vessel is not in my opinion: https://newlondon.craigslist.org/bod/d/ft-herreshoff-custom-torpedo/6545159670.html For the right price, I could see this in Nick's fleet...

    Interesting note: between Kent_Island_Sailor, Ishmael, and me, you have all 3 generations of C&C 35 represented here

    Finally found it. Here is what looks to be a reasonable option for a power supply: https://www.ebay.com/itm/DC-Voltage-Stabilizer-8-40V-to-12V-6A-72W-Car-Power-Supply-Regulator-Waterproof/311627034464?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649

    C&C 36...will it float?

    If I remember correctly, the 36's were all cored boats, so check around for wet core and delamination. The Barient winches are awesome. Take care of them, and they'll outlive you. And probably your kids. On my C&C 35, after much consternation about changing their classic look, I bought a pair of Winchmates to convert my primaries to self-tailing. Worth every penny from a shorthanded perspective (and sailing with my family is singlehanding,) and less than half of what a pair of real Barient self-tailing winches were going for from the local rigger:

    S/V Gemini

    I'm now a keelboat owner! So this thread is titled Gemini, but we have not yet gotten new lettering, recited the incantations, nor made an appropriate sacrifice to Triton to actually re-name the boat, so for now, she's still sailing as Janie (her old name). SWMBO and I kissed a lot of frogs while looking for this one. Bigger than anything I thought I'd be buying, SWMBO thinks she'll be perfect for our family. The boat has a bit of a racing pedigree, great PO who sold her to us, and has been well looked after. 1975 C&C 35 mark II I know that this crowd is all about the photo documentation, so let's get right to the reasons that Red Ryder and his family will be eating ramen. This is her yesterday morning: That was quickly followed by the arrival of the hydraulic trailer (sorry, no pix of this) and a short drive to the waterfront in Marblehead, MA. Resulting in this: Next up: rigging

    S/V Gemini

    Good point about the amperage - I don't have any huge inverter loads, but I'd appreciate your thoughts. I suppose I could divide the loads so that there is a pathway to large loads (maybe a separate panel) that doesn't go through the LVD Or maybe for now just consider an alternative device like the Blue Sea ATD: https://www.bluesea.com/products/7615/ATD_Automatic_Timer_Disconnect Looks like I should also move the LVD from its current location to placing it between the switch and the breaker panel?
