    @chester You could be right. Oh well. I like her.

    @Hukilau. I do agree that the 31 is a bit more "Classic" looking than mine. Maybe mine is more of a Phil Rhodes design.

    Thank you, @IStream. I'll be sure to give a good going over this weekend.

    Hooray, my boat is getting moved to another marina today. Fingers crossed all goes as planned. From Eagle Mountain marina to Harbour One marina. Harbour one looks to be better protected.

    The Discarded- Rescuing a Tartan 33

    There is local loft here in the DFW area that I am going to have build me a new main and a 130 headsail. And like @Ajax I get to watch them put it together. Pretty fair prices as well. Just me 2 cents worth. Oh, the loft is mariner sails.

    My boat was designed my McCurdy & Rhodes. I wonder who came up with this sheer? I like it's lines.

    I think she’s okay. They won’t let us into the marina. Thanks for the kind words. Hey, the interior on Zora is looking great! Keep it up.

    Enkes AR8 Winch Tear Down

    I agree. Are you in their neck of the woods? Went through there a few times with my dad years ago

    Enkes AR8 Winch Tear Down

    Well, I was able to get the stinkin' drum off after a liberal douching with WD-40. Now the stinkin' thing has a stainless ring at the top so I can't get the bearings off. Anyone want a very old winch? I've already purchased a Lewmar 7 to replace it. Thanks again for all of the advice.

    Let's hope it doesn't "rut". We don't need anymore of those things around.

    Beat me too it. But it is a beauty.
  14. I have a budget of $5,000 or less. I live north of Dallas/Fort so the choices may not be as wide as what you might have on the Great Lakes, East Coast, PNW etc. I am looking for something that you can day sail and spend the night on from time to time. I would also like to be somewhat competitive in can races when that time arises. The boss hasn't spent much time on the water so somewhat dry would be nice. So far what I have an interest in is: Seafarer 26. Great condition, lot's of extras and in the price range: (Will be looking at this 03/16/2019) But relatively slow. N.E PHRF 240 $4,500. In the water locally. https://dallas.craigslist.org/ftw/boa/d/azle-very-clean-77-seafarer-26-sailboat/6836658105.html Cal 25 MK II. Looks to be in good shape but how can really tell just by photos. Has the comfort and is a mite more nimble than the Seafarer. Have not planned to view as it's over 3 hours away. https://killeen.craigslist.org/boa/d/belton-cal-25-ft-sailboat-2000-obo/6836100893.html H Boat. Another member here let me know about this boat and is going to report on the condition of to me soon. Nice performance but not near as comfortable as the above two boats. Columbia 26 MK II. This boat has been on sale in this area off and on for the last couple of years. I see it is rated as high as 246 (Long Island) Looks comfortable. Condition unknown https://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/boa/d/rowlett-sail-boat-no-trailer/6842299788.html Those are just a few but if there are people on here that are in my area and know of any other boats that might be for sale shoot me a PM. I thought that this was going to be easy. And it's always fun to spend other people's money. So, bring on the opinions, suggestions, etc. (*)(*) <----- Boobs Thank You Jim

    All of the halyards are external but I get your point and thank you for the advice. Don't know when I'll be able to get to the boat as my Marina was thrashed by high winds last Sunday

    I think I just need to drop the mast and see what will fit. I purchased rope/wire halyards. Wire is 5/32, rope is 3/8. This worked great on the headsail halyard. Not so much on the main. The rope would go through the sheave/block at the masthead. Thanks again for all of the suggestions.

    Please make it a very high tariff. I’m getting tired of this. Hope the Sunday bad weather cycle breaks this weekend. If this happens again it’s going to be really bad.

    @PaulK has that right. 3 Weekends ago a woman drowned after the boat she was on heeled over and she was thrown in the water. Years ago, 4th of July, a buddy of mine and me saw some weather come by in and took his C Skow out for a sail. We learned our lesson that day after it turned turtle on us. Guess we need some more rail meat.

    I purchased this Garelick. I am wary of drilling holes in my boat but there is a good mechanic on Eagle Mtn. that I am going to use. Sailing would be nice but there's a bit of a jam up at my marina. Don't know when I'll get back out. The marina is going to live stream an update at 3 o'clock on facebook. It's Eagle mountain marina if you care to indulge in the carnage.
