    Melges 20 Trailer / Trailer Bearings

    I've done that, but figured someone out there has already done it and might be able to provide their experience.
  3. Hi folks - I think it's time to replace the bearings on the M20 trailer - some squeaking / thunking while trailering to the club has me thinking it's that time. Anyone know who makes the trailer or type of bearings used (assume sealed)? Any experience in replacing - nightmares to be prepared for? thanks last M20 in GTA

    Lake Ontario Anarchy

    Still deciding if I will actually bring the boat to the club this year. Happy it sits on a trailer in storage. Social distancing on a Melges 20 is a bit of a challenge and single-handing, nope.

    Lake Ontario Anarchy

    National keeps moving things - launch is now June 13-14. At this rate, we will get the mast up and tuned, in time to take them out again.......

    Lake Ontario Anarchy

    National is launching over 2 days - June 6/7. My boat may stay in storage for the summer - would anyone want to be in close quarters racing? Not sure about haul-out. Tyvek suits and respirators perhaps.
  7. as was recommended to me by a scuba dive master: - buy the Rolex and wear / show it off it at the bar - take off said Rolex before you get on the boat and put on a Timex IronMan Never wear an expensive watch on the water that you weren't prepared to lose overboard and NOT go after!

  12. Looking at getting back into dinghy racing, tired of finding crew on a keelboat. Considering a Laser but had two questions: - Laser vs Laser Radial - I'm not getting any younger and I'm hopefully not getting any heavier. So for someone who is rapidly aging but still fit and weigh ~ 150lbs, should I go for the full laser rig or the Radial? I know that Toronto is mostly light winds in the summer, but when it does crank I would like to be able to go out and not spend most of my time in the lake. - any suggestions on clubs to sail and "fun" race the Laser in Toronto? I know about some of the Outer Harbour clubs - what do people recommend? and no, I have no photos, go ask Snaggy for some.

    Dubarry Ultimate Boots Beware !

    Is this just a problem with the Dubarry Sailing Boots? I know someone who desperately wants a pair of their riding boots, but I don't want to spend that kind of coin to have them fall apart like that.
