    Can I put Blue Jay sails on my Flying Junior replica?

    Check They have inexpensive FJ sails that will fit and perform better than Blue Jay sails. Main is $299, IIRC. Sails from Intensity are generally not class legal but sound like the boat isnt either.

    Cargo strategy: tools

    Of course ANY of these “loaners” can double as a hammer and most probably have (except screwdrivers which do double or triple duty as a pry bar or drift punch). My club has a set of hand tools available for member use which are spray-painted red for identification and have been abused by...

    Floating Boat Lift - Sailboat

    I’d think you would end up using the boat far less often with this PITA procedure.  Doesn’t really allow for the spontaneity of “hey, let’s go out for a sail…” You’ll talk yourself out of going because a) conditions are less than perfect; b) not really enough time (because now it takes xyz to...

    Antifouling paint stripper

     I got the best price on Dumond Peel Away from my local Sherwin Williams.  Same stuff minus shipping charges for 5 gal buckets.  Great stuff and much more effective than CitriStrip.

    Alternative to McLube Sailkote

    Practical Sailor did an article on lubes some time ago and recommended Elmers Slide-All - decent stuff but can’t find it any longer and see mentions that it may have been discontinued.  Anyone try SuperLube Dri-Film PTFE lubricant?

    Sailboat help

    I can’t find any information on a Tanzer 23 — Tanzer made a 22, a 7.5 (24.5 ft) and a 25 (others also but these are closest to 23ft).  If this is part of someone’s estate and you’re looking for information in order to sell it, you’ll first need to verify the model.  Check the mainsail to see if...
