In Topic: Looking for a 33-35' R/C

27 August 2014 - 07:49 PM

Ditto the C&C 35 recommendation.  The C&C 35 Mk1 is a boat that is better than it has any right to be, even today.As a cruiser, the v-berth is generous, the galley a little stingy, but still usable, and the boat sails beautifully.  As a racer, it is a boat that is still competitive, at least in our local fleet. This season, we've been consistently third, behind a pair of J Boats.  If we can do that well with me in the crew, it says a great deal about the boat,   One cruiser complaint is no skeg on the rudder.


In Topic: Small portable generators

I just went through this same process a few months ago.  I waffled between a 1000 w and 2000 watt generator, between Honda, Yamaha, and Champion.  After calculating needs, 2000 watt inverter generator wins out.  it will power circular saws, table saws, etc,  and charge electronics  without being obnoxiously loud.  A quick review:

Sounds like the design and marketing departments occupied adjoining stools at the bar.

"Bill, draw me a boat..."

"thas a great scribble on that napkin.  Thas the boat we're gonna build! That's a right smar boat there, it is."

"Thass what we'll call 'em, Dan..."

In Topic: more hands on deck (you tube)

These guys are awesome. I think that's a welded ear on a standard chain plate. I watched an earlier film of theirs and am jealous. It's amazing what you can achieve if you don't know that you can't.

 

 

I think that's it.

 

I do applaud them for getting out there and doing it, just find it tacky asking for hand out

 

 

If their story was in a mag, you'd pay for it- they are just cutting out the middle man.  I DO find it tacky when someone has a donate button on their blog before they have any meaningful content, but if you have gotten something out of it, I don't think it's tacky at all to be able to show your appreciation- think of it as busking, scribbler style.

 

Don't even get me started on the "Hold Fast" fucknuckles.
