    Heavy Metal

    After the owner of Heavy Metal passed away, a friend of the family had the boat shipped to Harahan, a suburb of New Orleans, to a warehouse below the Huey P. Long bridge. The new owner had a steel fabricating business and the dream was to fit out the interior and take the boat cruising. I saw the boat there 20 years ago, don't know what happened after that. The past couple of years Lee Creekmore has been successfully sailing his self designed / built wooden boat "Scoundrel" in the Gulf Yachting Association Challenge Cup series as an entry from the Mobile Yacht Club.

    Great Circle Sails?

    Care to explain? Or is it sarcasm because you don't know anything about the sail maker Great Circle Sails?

    Great Circle Sails?

    (Posted in Cruising Anarchy, but since I race I thought it better to post here also.) 41 ft C/R looking for a new main, and have a quote from Great Circle. While I know Brian Hancock gets some grief here, I tend to trust his knowledge. Anyone with first/second hand experience with their sails?

    Foam backed vinyl liner

    Beneteau uses a foam backed liner in the cabins of its cruising boats. Over time the adhesive fails and the vinyl falls. Has anyone successfully re-applied the vinyl. how did you do it? Alternatives to re-install?

    Watching the Hobart in the US

    Is the start replay available anywhere? In past years it was easy to find. All the You tube videos state it is unavailable.

    Does the Amazon Fire have gps, or does it need something like a Bad Elf?

    North sails ,pricing, discounts

    I am in the market for new race sails. Longer that a carbon tri-radial panel sail from one of the other bigs (UK, Quantum, Doyle, etc.)? Why do you say that? At what premium cost? Average useful life? Thanks for any info.

    SA Approved

    4 burners on the stove is overkill. Place another burner in the V berth and you might have something.
  14. I have a leather cover on my wheel, it has a suede finish to it. I keep it covered most of the time, but it still seems to have gotten a little dried out. I would like to add some type of leather conditioner to it that won't make it feel oily. Any recommendations?

    Mac Race multihulls

    Anyone have info on the 4 multi's that apparently dropped out (according to the yellowbrick tacker)? Smyth was on Earth Voyager, he seldom quits a race.
