    Rules question - OCS or do turns?

    I just read through this whole thread and this is obviously another "get a life" discussion. We are talking about long distance pursuit racing, probably at club level. These are most often organized as fun races to get everybody back to the club or somewhere else to a party at more or less the...

    VC-17m questions

    An  actual use update. I did our boat today. Car said temp was 3deg C (that's about 38 degF for you Mericuns) when I got to the marina. Had the boat prepped so started pretty much right away since there was no wind. I suspect the hull and keel may have actually been colder than the air (felt...

    what is it?

    Actually the name is sort of fitting. This is what a Hornfisch looks like. Still ugly but not far off the bow of the boat.

    3M 4000 UV Turning to Tar!? WTF

    I have used Sikaflex 295 with good success. Cleans up with rubbing alcohol when ( not if) you get all over the boat and yourself. The only down side is that you also need to buy the primer which costs way more than the tube of caulking. You only need a small amount of the primer and it expires...

    CATARI comes along at Pacific Seacraft

    Just a quick question about the hatch. What are a the "extra" bits of metal sticking out, aside from the hinges, which are lovely, and the pistons. Are there four latches, one for each side of the hatch driven by hidden gears or do they do something else? My poor foredeck hatch only has two and...

    Please help: How much sanding prior to Interlux Epoxy Primekote

    Seems to me that making sure that the epoxy paint sticks is the important part and the test patch is a good idea. I don't think you need to worry about the small dips and valleys. The Kiwigrip should fill those in just fine since it goes on thicker than the paint anyway.

    How to prep bottom of used fresh water boat for the newb. . . .

    If memory serves correctly nothing goes over VC17 and sticks. VC has be sanded off first before you apply anything else. Interlux ( has charts showing what will work with what (and more importantly what will not).

    I guess I still got it..but there ain't no bitches hiking

    Probably still not a good idea to bury that outrigger in the water and it looks awfully close to that.

    The responses are not really what I had in mind when I asked the question, but they are entertaining as usual, if slightly? off topic.
