  1. Paris, on the Seine. On the quai de New York, below the Pont d'Iena (Jenna Bridge). Hmm...
  2. We think so. ;-),-60.4294541,1459m/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en
  3. It opened new in 2013, I think you were here some time before that. Long, yes, I'll give you that, East Bay is long. Shallow, don't think so, much of East bay is over 350 feet deep. Narrow? East Bay is about a mile across where this new Marina / Yacht club is located. What do you call narrow? Oh, and the cleats are large, and are bolted down.
  4. DDW, I know you've been here before but things have improved since your last visit. This is where Salazar spend her summers, when she isn't sailing. No Bull Rails, in fact no wood at all. And cleats! Lots of them! Ben Eoin, on the East Bay of the Bras d'Or Lake.

    C&C 39 Rudder lost at sea...

    Essentially, South Shore Yacht was handed the C&C replacement parts business by C&C years ago, which explains why they have so many C&C Rudders, they have all the original rudder molds. More here: Still, I'd go for Bob's redesign if I were you.

    Sailing to Halifax

    If you decide to make that last jump past Halifax on up to the Bras d'Or Lakes system here is an online guide with loads of info:
  7. Read the story by Antoine Rose as he crossed the Atlantic Ocean on "COUSIN" - a 1973 C&C 30 Footer

    C&C 36...will it float?

    And toilet paper. Our 35 came with limited water capacity, the PO added another tank to double it. When we're really off the beaten track we carry an extra five gallons of diesel and five of water in jerry cans on deck. Not ideal, but that's one of the tradeoffs with a shallow canoe body and a skinny keel. We carry 44 US Gal of Fuel (plus 10 more in jerry cans in the cockpit locker if necessary), and 80 US gal. of water, split over three tanks. Same issue as Ish, shallow canoe body and a skinny keel. We generally run out of water before fuel. The water will last us a week or more, two weeks if we stay in the Bras d'Or where the water is nice and warm for swimming. On the other hand, with guests aboard who aren't used to boats and no panic about access to more water we can go through all of it in one long weekend.

    C&C 36...will it float?

    Spare Parts With the demise of the companies that manufactured BARIENT & BARLOW winches, almost every customer who ever purchased those winches has experienced some frustrations in trying to keep the winches serviceable. Unfortunately, no provisions were made to ensure supply of even the most basic of spare parts for BARIENT & BARLOW equipment. But there is hope. The AUSTRALIAN YACHT WINCH COMPANY can help. We have purchased a large quantity of the original Barient and Barlow tooling and all the technical data covering the entire period of their existence. Additionally, our intimate knowledge of Barient and Barlow products ensures delivery of the correct spare parts at minimum fuss. Spare Parts Price List (in US Dollars) effective from October 1st, 2010: I realize that the last time that web-page was updated was 2010 but I emailed them last summer for some bearings and got a quick reply with the information I needed and prices, etc. Barients with aluminium winch drums need a bit more cleaning and care to last forever, annual cleaning and lubing is enough I think, however the bronze, chromed bronze and stainless versions are essentially immortal as far as I can see. Lewmar bought the company to eliminate the competition. Too bad, great winches.

    C&C 36...will it float?

    What year is this 36 you're looking at? I see they started building them in 1977 or so, I don't easily find when they stopped building the 36 and moved to a different model. C&C's wiring was done well by the mid to late 1980's, proper tinned strands, etc., earlier, not so much.

    State of the art boat wiring, 1959.

    I had been one of those who were wondering why there was a wood door covering the switch panel. Now I see it in context It make perfect sense. Not hard to accidentally stick your foot in there and kick a couple of switches when going above if it was open all the time. A clear plastic insert in the door would be another option, kind of like the wood door with glass window covering the ancient knob and tube fuse block (no longer used) in my back entrance at home (100 year old house).

    Electric pumps for a dinghy?

    The Halkey Roberts valves on my Seabright Inflatable work exactly like this. I don't even have to use my mad pickpocket skilz to push in and turn the little knob, or release it when the boat is filled.

    Sailing around the world (Galleon replica)

    From the Spanish Wikipediaón_Andalucía ... via Google Translate: On March 21 he left the Sevillian port to dock at the Port of Cádiz, where he remained anchored three more days. He then visited Malaga, Malta, Haifa, and crossed the Red Sea through the Suez Canal. On May 7, 2010, she was escorted by the frigate Victoria, on her way to the Gulf of Aden. It was because it was in Operation Atalanta of the European Union for the fight against piracy in Somali waters. It finally arrived in Shanghai on June 24, 2010. So, the dates seem accurate as far as the references in Spanish Wikipedia can be trusted. I was a little surprised.
