    Building a cunningham

    https://www.harken.com/content.aspx?id=3898 Here are some cunningham options via Harken. I have a 12:1 Cascaded on my Hobie 33, works just fine. I believe it is 4-5mm line, breaking strength is very high. At a point the line size becomes what is comfortable on your hands and wallet. My cunningham on the Hobie 33 is Alpha Ropes SSR. Hope this helps!

    Deck Replacement?

    Well, for starters its balsa. was balsa. Now its more like soaking wet paper towls. I would imagine unsealed mounting holes from long since removed hardware caused it. Spider cracking throughout does not help either.

    Deck Replacement?

    The boat is for sale, yes the owner has a new unused deck for the boat. I was wondering how big of mess it would be with the hull/deck tabbing.

    Deck Replacement?

    Boat-Wavelength 24, Ability-Not well enough to take a deck off. Apparently the deck that is on it is absolutely shot in every way possible. The obvious answer here is no way in hell should this be taken on. I was just mulling over the idea considering the circumstances. There have been plenty of threads on recoring and cabin top removal, except this is the whole deck, with a whole second deck to replace it. Not much information on that because it is not something normal people even consider. The reality of this boat is it should meet a chainsaw, but thats always a shame to see that happen.

    Deck Replacement?

    Has anyone here ever replaced an entire deck? I do not mean the core, I mean the whole deck. Searching the forum seems to bring up no results. I know limited details on the boat except that it needs the deck replaced and it has a new deck to be put on it. Thanks!

    A CM built Farr 395 started to break in half leaving jamacia after the pineapple cup this year. I would not touch a CM boat with a 10 foot pole.

    J/35 Jibing video

    I was waiting for this comment. I went up and raced on Dean's List and those guys seemed untouchable. I can see why this video is labeled fails, I also didn't know those guys knew how to fail.

    Ideal Youth Sailing Progression?

    I did the same sort of progression in junior sailing, I got to big for optimist pretty quick and soon to big for laser radial, which is all they for juniors locally. Past that the 420 is the only boat used for high school and college Sailing, which is to small for most big guys to sail in. At my size I weight more then the boat itself. The only junior class I could sail in is thistles, this fleet briefly resurged but died out when people aged out. The skinnier class of kids following them wanted nothing to do with the Thistle. As someone who plans to be a lifelong sailor it is unfortunate to lose my last years of junior sailing and not being able to sail high school or college sailing. Taking the politics out would help as well.
