    Getting Tough With The Maskless

    Are you willing to play a part in a possible solution? Do you have something constructive to add? If so, let’s hear your master plan. If it’s based on science, reason and logic, I’m all in!

    Getting Tough With The Maskless

    I’ve had this debate several times, and this approach seems to give pause. Yes, the mask probably provides little or no protection to you. But... Would you consider the possibility that if everyone were to wear a mask, it might save someone you love.

    In the slings at Norwalk Cove

    Dude! You stole my line. Did we ever work in the same boatyard?

    whats up with West Marine?

    I’ve had no problem finding anything I need at Defender. I also emailed a special hardware order directly to Holt Allen in England. Boom! I got a reply in less than 20 minutes. Shipped same day. Ten days later it’s on my doorstep in the US.

    Bombardier 4.8

    Sorry bartman for the slow response. Boat sails very well. It’s quick and has very little weather helm. I dry sail it off my trailer. It takes twenty minutes from pulling into the launch area to sailing off the dock. I have the original owners manual. I can scan and send if you like. Nothing online exists.

    Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    Bombardier 4.8. I bought one last spring on Craig’s List for $900 in sailing condition with a trailer. I sailed 20 days last season and plan to double that this season. It’s very fast and I’m working on making it as fast as it can possibly be.

    Aluminum boat gestation.

    Bombardier 4.8

    I’ve decided foils are too complicated. My plan now is to make this boat into 4.5 meter skiff, like the 18 foot skiffs in Australia.

    turn buckle anarchy

    I’m wondering about using lifeline hardware for my small boat rigging. Any thoughts?

    Bombardier 4.8

    Found this $900 gem on the list early this spring. She came ready to go with sails, trailer and owners manual. Eleven sails later, I’ve got her dialed in. I’ve just experienced the twitchy feel of a sailboat on plane. She’s ready for foils!
