    Ever paint a sail? Murder out a Laser?

    They use latex paint for wooden aircraft that are covered in dacron. I have used this to paint on sun covers to furling jibs. works well, doesn't last forever but easy to repair

    The Four Carbon Cutters project

    Bob, this boat is really beautiful but the women on board are really ugly. It is my only criticism.

    Yes, sorry I did not make that clear

    Insurance-Double Handed race coverage

    "It is with much regret that we inform you that our Underwriters are no longer prepared to offer cover for American or Canadian registered or owned vessels unless they are permanently sailing within European waters. Cover cannot be provided even in European waters if the yacht is used for charter or yachts requiring third party liability cover only. These restrictions apply to any new applications for Yacht Insurance. This decision has been made because of the potential additional costs under US and Canadian legislation." That's an email I got from them yesterday. I was just shopping for quotes to see if I could save a few bucks.

    Thanks, They only made a handful of the 48 customs so I understand if it wasn't what came to mind. It originally had a pulpit but it had been removed before I purchased the boat.

    Indeed, 1975 c&c 48 custom. Taking friends out for the weekend always means extra stuff on deck. Enjoyment and vanity are always at odds

    Singlehanding a 44' cruiser?

    All luxuries. Self tailers are not necessary nor are electric. Lazy jacks or dutchman are important.

    Singlehanding a 44' cruiser?

    I don't think the size is a problem, I regulatory single hand my engine less 48fter, that part is more about planning and knowing the boat. If you can afford the upkeep then it's fine but more space than you need for single handing. If it's worth the cost then do it, if not then don't

    Cruising the Galapagos in 1938

    Your tag line is so contrived and boring I can't be bothered. If your going to make a shameless attempt at self promotion, at least make it interesting.

    Girl with patreon account goes sailing in hot place

    I thought that was a built in birth control feature

    OK, I sort of get it, now

    Washer dryer is too much. On an extended cruise I usually have the leisure to do it by hand or wonder over to the laundromat. But I come from the school of thought that less is more. Less stuff to break, more time to sail
