    Selden 72mm bow sprit

    Are the sprit measurements of 72mm the outside diameter or inside? Cant find it on their site
  3. Doing intial research on a daysailing catamaran that is made in USA that could hold up to 50 passengers for sunset sails and private charters that is also bluewater capable for delviery down south potentiall in winter. The Seawind 1160 Resort http://www.seawindcats.com/models/seawind-day-charter-catamaran/ fits the bill as far a s size and specs (21'6:" s max for local travel lifts for haulouts) The issue is it made in vietnam and would only be able to get USCG certification for 12 passengers (or so I was told). Would like the same layout or close to it, but made in the USA. Any manufacturers who could build one to similar specs or other ones that fit the bill already. Googleing, but not finding what I am looking for.

    New Group 27 Batteries

    Got nearly 6 years out of the Duracell 27DC batteries for my sailboat. ROtate Start and house on odd/even days on my sailboat and diesel. Going to replace all4 as two are shot and may as well get 4 new. Are Exide marine/RV dual purpose batteries ok to use? If not what else in that price range (under $100) would your recommend.
  7. So there was a small dime sized chip taken out of my keel which went through the 4 coats of interprotect barrier coat to the lead. As opposed to buying the way overpriced interlux interpotect, could i feather out thechip to get to bare lead and fill and fair with the west system epoxy and some filler and sand? If so what about bottom paint? Light rough up right before teh they go to paint?

    Whitebread 2014

    wind against tide and right past the moa was a mess, as was all of gardiners bay. Was blowing 30-33 knots steady then. We were getting bounced around on our J34c pretty good out there (got airborne twice at helm). We saw them get knocked down hard about 200-300 yards away behind them or less. From owners mouth, they did get knocked over hard, cockpit filled up bad from leeward, then subsequent waves filled them up from windward and that was it. boat went down in less than 2 minutes stern first. When we got close, all 4 were floating and 2 other boats on scene rescuing them. Life jackets were mandatory for all boats thank god! Did also hear boat was recovered, but not sure by whom or when. We were in 26 feet of water when we past them to the east and mast was slightly above water. they are local sailors and friends too so glad to see they are all ok!

    Q: How are a Tornado and marriage similar? A: They both begin with a lot of sucking and blowing, and in the end you lose your house.
