    Henderson 30?

    Hey, gossmanl, nice job taking a second in the Mills last weekend. It wasn't sporty conditions and you beat them all but 1 including the other Hendo.

    I have worked on the rudder bearings more times than I like to think about. Should have changed them out years ago, but for some reason I keep repairing them. 17 years ago on our first repair we used epoxy and graphite. Quick and easy, but didn't hold up well for us. Then we tried epoxy and colloidal silica. Seemed to work better but still didn't last as long as we liked. Then we ground 1/16" out of the races and lined them with delrin. Worked even better but still saw some wear and tear. Over the last few years as the delrin has worn, I've been replacing it with aluminum strips. THIS IS WORKING WELL.

    Cruising Lake Superior

    When we first started talking about the trip I checked out the date for the Trans Superior thinking that would be a good way to get the boat west quickly and take even longer returning. But timing doesn't work. This is the year for Superior.

    Cruising Lake Superior

    Hey, thanks for the tips. I've been looking into the North shore for a couple of days now. For the first part of the trip we will be following the Same shore due to some changing crew along the way. But possibly we might be able to check out the North shore along with the Slates, heading back east. Thanks for the tips! I've been reading Bonnie Dahls cruising guide for the lake to help put some of this together.

    Cruising Lake Superior

    Going in late July early August. I will bring all the warm clothes I own. Is the Library the same Library bar I went to back in the 70s at Tech?

    Cruising Lake Superior

    Gonna cruise the big lake for a month this summer. Anybody have any favorite ports, or places to avoid? Going to enter the lake from the East. Planning on checking out Isle Royal. Maybe the Apostle islands if time and weather permits.

    I'm still kicking. Boat gets wet this weekend. One new sail, putting the sprit back in for phrf racing, staying conventional for ORR. What's up on your side of town?

    The hull /deck joint is solid glass. Not much to go wrong here. The coring starts below where the sun shines. If you look closely all the deck hardware is installed in solid glass areas.

    Wavelength 24

    I've sailed Wavelengths a lot. And I like sailing them. Also done a fair amount of offshore sailing.........but not on a Wavelength. But to each his/her own.
