    Best Anchor Drag Alarms

    Check out the Sailsafe app. It will do an anchor alarm and call another phone. Not sure whether there is an iOS version.

    Uglyboat Admiration Society Hang Out

    Maybe this is an attempt to "dress up" the mast, much like one hides the structural steel in a house behind some fancy doric columns

    And another thing!

    My dad is going through Alzheimers at the moment. It's pretty tough to see what the disease is doing to a person who used to be confident and sure of himself. It's even tougher on my mom, who is loosing her partner of 60 years, little by little, every day. I do cherish my memories of what he used to be like and gratefully accept every time when a little of his old self shows through the fog caused by the disease.

    Kudos to Mrs. Owner. She has more class than that guy deserves and people like her restore my faith in humanity!!

    It's the 4 cylinder Volvo Penta that's got me baffled.

    Enkes AR8 Winch Tear Down

    This is where you pick your poison. I agree with not mixing the sealants but I would go butyl work the bolts and the bead. I like that butyl stays sticky for a long time, so even if the winches move a bit under load, in my book you stand a better chance of keeping the water out. Im not trying to start a religious debate here, just stating my preference To each their own. Just pick a door

    Enkes AR8 Winch Tear Down

    I would still put a little butyl around the bolts, where they penetrate the deck. A little extra insurance never hurts

    Enkes AR8 Winch Tear Down

    A river rivet, damn auto correct got me too, would work just fine. Makes it look like it's attaching some secret and very important stuff on the inside of the mast

    Cape May NJ shoals

    I've always preferred when our sold boats left for parts unknown. That way I remember them as they were

    We seem to actually be cruising??

    Thanks for the update. Very nice. Glad to hear you're having a good tome

    The worst ideas on old boats:

    The cushions in my mid 70s Paceship 26 were upholstered in an orange version of that Tartan
