    Coolboats to admire

    Grew up on the Great Lakes in the Detroit area. This was always one of my favorite boats. Dick Carter design NA 40. I am sure @Cal20sailor is familiar with these. Hull #4, built 1978. She is currently getting ready to race in the Chi/Mac. Then down to Port Huron for the BYC Mac. Went to school with the owner. Oh, he has got 12 trophies in the Chi/Mac on FT.

    Same PHRF as my SeaFarer 26. But mines in better shape.

    Perhaps "boat" has a nicer ring.

    I was thinking of putting a thin cap rail down the sides of my boat. Thank you for talking me out of it.

    @blunderfull Have a quick recovery. I'm pulling for you. Thanks for the rockin' video. Can't wait to see his new boat. I wonder if he'll be a "Sir" someday?

    Enkes AR8 Winch Tear Down

    @IStream Would I cover the base of the pad in butyl or just run a bead around the edge? When I took the pads off there was a lite coating of a clear sealant. Wasn’t hard to remove.

    Enkes AR8 Winch Tear Down

    Sealant question for the experts. What should I use to seal the winch pads to the deck. 4200 or Life caulk? I do have butyl but was told no go. And on the pads I just used a good dousing with Watco teak oil.

    Holy Moly. Thanks for the heads up. Took a bit of fiddling around to get the Marlin spike closed.

    I wonder if Mr. Perry and he are friends?

    I could see where a boat like that could be the end of Friendships. “Honey, look what followed me home. Can we keep it?”

    Enkes AR8 Winch Tear Down

    Gave up on the small winch but the primaries are cleaned, lubed, and I got new winch pads.

    Enkes AR8 Winch Tear Down

    @IStream. Got it to work on the larger winches but I can't stretch the ring enough to get it on the smaller winch. Oh well, I bought a used Lewmar #7 that I am going to mount on top of the deck house for halyards and reefing. Thank You again.
