  1. let's just say she's not a big fan of 'Bamby Brains' all over...
  2. Remedy 3- ditch State farm, or any direct writer for that matter, and find a reputable independent agent. Review everything and get quotes. ask the agent about the claims service of the carrier with the best quote/coverage. I use Chubb/Ace for my boats, they pay claims quickly no questions asked. you may pay a bit more, but good coverage and advise is well worth it.
  3. good call, we have a genny on the most forward roller, and we could just unroll a bit and sheet tight. gonna try without the prod initially, and see how it goes..
  4. thx Wilco, i only did the double coat from first to second coat, they were both thinned as well. Prior to coat 3 most of 2 was sanded off. on coat 6 now and looking nice and flat. i'll try to post some picks.
  5. I agree, do 2 reefs. (first one moderate, 2nd deep) i would also suggest having the sailmaker put the deep reef clew grommet higher than the tack grommet. this will make the boom ride higher on the aft end. Keeps it out of the water, and improves leeward visibility & flying gybes less deadly....
  6. i have a good deal option on an A kite for a 20K# 41 cruiser. No prod currently on the bow, but considering adding one. it would be a bit wonky given the busy configuration up front. (two headstays, two anchor rollers) so im wondering what the performance diff would be using a prod vs just tag lined to the bow. i'm mostly concerned w deep angles, say aft of 140 AWA. TWS north of 10kts. thx,
  7. Thx Sass, All good info, boat is indoors, dust free. Cut the first two coats w a bit of min spirits and it worked well, put them one on top of another an hour or so between to get some build. just sanded tonight (120) and hit it w a straight coat of capt's. I like a brush better than foam, seem to get better control and fewer random drips. Tell you one thing, if you don't catch a drip or run onto your gelcoat deck your in for a project getting it off the next day. Now when done brushing I go around the work a few times making sure no varnish is where it shouldn't be..
  8. Taking the companionway trim down to bare wood then re varnishing. the trim is teak. should i cut the first coat to get max penetration into the wood? i'm using Capt'ns spar varnish. if so, what's the best solvent to cut with? thx in advance!
  9. nice old school G Lopez lines in this snip.
  10. probably the same 38% that don't have sex in a yr. they sure do miss the buffet's on the cruise liners though...
  11. That's a good writeup, learned a bunch about uncle Larry... The American Dream for sure.
  12. you didn't an you didn't say whether it was a term or permanent policy, or who actually owns the policy. if it is term, then let it go, your better off buying lottery ticks w the premium. Industry average for term death bene's paid is 2%. Not a good gamble...
  13. bending the mast and taking on Cunningham do not achieve all of the same results. where bending the rig will flatten in general, move the draft slightly aft and twist off the top. Cunny will also flatten and twist open, but move the draft forward.
