  1. Nice vid! Spin sheets don't run up to the cabin top? Just one winch up there?

    Dyneema Deck Railings

    Thanks for the input. I've done lifelines on number of boats and never had any problem with creep like those mentioned above. Having your whole crew hiked off the rail on a single line probably takes the creep out pretty fast. Lashing at one end makes for an easy adjustment. I've used mostly 1/4 amsteel since it's cheap and bullet proof. UV is not a big issue here. Just curious if anyone had done this on their homes. Sounds like the answer is no. Stainless eventually goes to shit too, so nothing is perfect.

    Dyneema Deck Railings

    So SS cable deck railing is great for residential applications. So, why not go with dyneema and save of the fittings and cable? Online searches are not turning up anything, so I thought I'd ask the crew? I've got a big deck project going in on a boathouse. SS is just too expensive, but I'm very familiar with splicing and working with dyneema. Repeat - this is not for a boat, it's for new residential construction of a boathouse. Thanks!

    Garmin gWind Wireless 2

    Right - I get it. I don't give a shit about compatibility, just looking to hear from someone that has installed this god damned thing. Apparently no one has.

    ANT lets you go straight from the wind transducer to a comparable garmin chart plotter or garmin GNX wind instruments. Takes the wire and the black box out of the equation. I'm already running a garmin black box to put my old Nexus fluxgate compass on NMEA2K and it works great.

    Any reviews of this system? ANT technology that can go straight to a compatable chart plotter. Lag time? Potentially adding to a sport boat for polars & distance racing. Cheap option give the boat's current setup. Thanks & cheers!

    Holy fuck get your head out of the boat and sail. You know what's fast? Time in the saddle... (with good crew)

    Find me a 30 footer in PNW with a turn of speed

    I picked up an Ericson built Olson 911-S from Tyee Marina. Big-ass 30 footer and sails well. We are pretty happy with the new family cruiser. Thanks for the leads and input on the hunt. Cheers.

    Good to hear that Kodiak is on her way back and that the Wilderness 30 is getting some love. For now I'm enjoying the Antrim 27 with the floorboard and full cushions - cruise mode! Did a bunch of great family sailing this past weekend with just the jib.

    I'd buy the Davidson 29 w/ no mast and bring her back. PM me if you have any info. I assume this is Kodiak? The Wilderness 30 sold for 3.5K. Oly owner quit paying moorage and so it went fast. Project for sure, but cool boat.

    Well that was a disaster. Bottom had structural blisters and areas of delimitation. Rudder was toast too. I'm back pleading for more leads on loved 30 footers in the PNW.

    Name this tool??

    I though this was a question about the Trump administration... Japanese wood saws are great. Stash it where you can find it. You will find many uses.

    Antrim. Done.

    Find me a 30 footer in PNW with a turn of speed

    That's a Sam Devlin boat I walk by all the time in Oly. She's a beauty. I have a C-Dory 22 Cruiser so got that covered too. Made an offer on a C&C 30 MKII yesterday. Unlisted boat. Fingers crossed that the survey turns out OK. It's freaking huge for a 30 footer. Thanks for the replies. Pretty sure I've lost my mind but fuck it. Life is short. I'll follow up if the deal goes through, or plead for more leads if it does not. Cheers.
