    You're all so predictable in your dreams. Dream big:

    Perry Sliver Class Day Sailor

    We can only hope Toasty Wait a sec, I'm going to edit this to add something: Fuck— the guy whose skin is falling off, has a scar that would frighten a hardened criminal, and has consumed copious amounts of “therapeutic” poisons for months says “at least it’s not Covid” and I’m supposed to stay silent? Or just step in front of a speeding bus... "At least it’s not Covid"— I’m going to remember this! (if I live)

    Show your boat not sailing

    Your original failure was due to "crevice corrosion" which happens when SS is in an anaerobic environment-- precisely what glassing in the chainplates creates. I had the same failure on my Soverel... didn't glass in the replacements

    Cold Feet, But Not Sea Boots

    IIRC, that was Matt Rutherford's conclusion while underway on his round-the-Americas solo trip-- he threw the fancy ($$$) stuff away and reverted to what commercial fishermen use: rubberized Grundens (and the like)

    Craigslist - Not mocking

    Didn't he just finish building that? I thought the plan was for that to be his liveaboard...

    Hurth HBW-5

    Just to clarify: I was talking about a PRM gearbox, I do not know of TMC.

    Hurth HBW-5

    OK, its been about a decade so my memory may be off a bit-- I think the Hurth gear I had was the HBW5.... it went out and I contacted THE guy in the Boston area who said he could rebuild it for me but then said "if it was mine, I'd just replace it with a PRM." So, that's what I did. Drop-in replacement except for the shift linkage being on the other side of the case necessitating some cable rerouting. Haven't thought about it since.... (all bets are off if I am remembering which Hurth I had incorrectly....(

    RIP Austin1972 1972-2020

    Very sad to hear/read this. I remember when he named a calf for Bob Perry's late son. Seemed like a very nice man. RIP.

    Since this hasn’t come up, I’ll just put this here. A wonderful example of his voice on this cover of a Jesse Winchester classic:

    How I bought my boat

    Makes me glad I use diesel (kerosene) in the winter and CNG in the summer...

    Single-handed cruising options

    Sorry I didn’t see this thread earlier.... For chrissakes! Buy a copy of Roger Barnes book! Read it. Look at the designs by John Welsford and Francois Vivier! You’re reinventing the wheel and working from a bad copy to begin with. Seriously, everything you want to do is being done everyday in France and New Zealand....
  15. What about the River of Grass design-- build it yourself and save all that transatlantic shipping stuff. From Bedard design in Florida. Beachable:
