  1. I'm about to bust my trailer sailer out of lockdown. I am mortified about how dirty it got, sorry boat. What is the best way to clean mouldy sails ?
  2. I have a 21 foot trailer sailer that is rarely used and my wife and daughter don't really care for. I am going for a few days camp cruising once I get over a very busy period of work. If that doesn't turn out to be the best thing ever, I can see it making way for a small power boat and a wing foil.
  3. Anyone know anything about this boat ? Where is it based. I just saw its logo'd up van driving around town and am curious.
  4. If I wanted to reduce time and effort I would happily skimp on flaking the headsail neatly and bagging it. Just do what you can to get it down below for a day or two and re hoist.
  5. I know if didn't bother I would spend the duration of the storm pacing around and second guessing my choices and being stressed. If I had done it would feel a lot better and that even if the boat was sunk it wouldn't be due to my negligence. That said, I would do the headsail, dodger, extra fenders and lines. I think I would wrap some lines around the mainsail cover and leave the main on.
  6. It's mostly a function of wind speed, in the light surprisingly high, maybe 65 apparent wind angle. You might find in this mode it's a massive gain, probably the best wind speed to boat speed ratio you will get. Often the difference between being able to sail of having to motor. As the winds speed goes up the closest wind angle for the spin goes aft as you will get overpowered
  7. Could you not put the autopilot on and have someone point it the right way and then get into a dinghy about a mile short of the border and go home ?
  8. I got moderna, 1st one I was fine until the evening the following day, 30 hrs after . Everything I heard is that the second one is worse and given I had reacted to the first I wasn't looking forward to it. Got shot two in the am, went about my business and started to feel rough late afternoon, I went to bed expecting a shitty night and following day... Nope felt great in the morning. The first one made me feel worse.
  9. The racing scene is pretty weak, hack level PHRF, some sunfish, not a whole lot. Hot as hell in the summer, awful bugs, apart from that, pretty good spot.
  10. Very impressed by Koji, who honestly thought he was going to finish looking at his mainsail repairs so soon after the start.
  11. Boom, no biggie then, case closed unless you all want to talk about it some more !
  12. Alright, follow up questions / suggestions, clarification. I buy well used cars in cash, lets say semi beaters. It's not really a question of choosing AWD or not, more like this is what's available locally at the right price, if the right deal come along but it's only 2WD I don't want to ignore that option. So the worst case is getting a 2WD car which fits the bill in every way, but turns out that it can't cope with the slippy boat ramp. Why can't I park halfway down on the dry bit, chock the car wheels, adapt a 12V winch so It mounts in the receiver hitch and pull the boat to
  13. Probably exactly what I need and would be perfect, why do they have to be so ugly !
  14. I think it's fair to assume, that 2wd means front drive in a car. I don't think there are many rwd wagons. I don't seem to have much tongue weight so hopefully it's not going to lift the front too much.
