  1. Jan 9th extremely light wind for the majority of the race.
  2. I will look and see what is available online from any where on the coast. As for gloves I have been doing fine with my summer gloves so far but have been looking into something with fingers as the short fingers are plenty warm when tacking but after awhile of sailing down wind they get cool.
  3. Water doesn't freeze on the lake here, well it hasn't since the 50s or 60s so not a issue. I have sorels and baffins but they are not agile and are not much for support. I am usually sailing solo so being able to move around quickly is often needed, wearing insulated bricks on my feet is not ideal.
  4. Thank you! I have a hard time justifying a $500 jacket or boots when I will trash them in a season (looking at you north face!).
  5. Your talking the white rubber things the militaries use to issue? I have never tried them, used the white mukluks lots but they aren't very water proof
  6. Simple and effective, ok thank you. yes tight footwear is the end of warmth.
  7. I am looking for recommendations on what is a good cold weather boot, about -10c. I am having a hard time deciding and all the articles I have found seem to be written with no relevant information. Does anyone have some they would recommend? or ones they would not. I plan to keep sailing through the winter and the boots I am using now are leaving black marks all over the deck and cock pit.

  9. Squeky I just caught up on this post and sorry for what you went through. I think the man who dropped off the golf club saw you were in a bad situation and tried to give you something to protect yourself with.

  11. I crew on a Laser 28 every Wednesday. It is a fun boat that responds very well to minor tweaks to your sail trim. This has drastically improved my skills as it is very easy to see when you are too hard on the sheets, or too soft. I just had to deal with the Buhk engines fuel lines being rotten and falling apart. This seems like no big deal to fix. Well it was fun and taught me a lot about that engine. There are a series of fuel lines that have banjo fittings on them. These banjo fittings are a whole mess of sizes but all use the same size of hose. This is not a common occurrence with Ban
  12. For the price they are either desperate to sell or there is something horrible going on with it. https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1983/contest-38s-3191005/
