    ClubSwan 41 - soft launch or floating an idea?

    A nav station is more than just a nav station. it's a workbench, an organizer, storage locker & desk. its one aspect of a boat's overall functionality.

    Southern Ocean Heating - re: "Irreversible" on SA headline

    Beat me to it. Global pollution & overpopulation are much more real & provable than man made climate change but the screeching SJW types driving the narrative don't want to appear anti-people so they've changed the target. Personally I think that we still very gradually coming out of an ice...

    Help with well known yacht broker dispute

    But if he sold the company then it was not his brokerage claiming to have sold the boat, it was the new owners who made the commission, not the person with whom you had the agreement, so you'd get 20% of zero. I'd say that if you emails clearly state that the agreement for you to receive 20%...

    ClubSwan 41 - soft launch or floating an idea?

    But, but,'s got 4 hanging lockers. That's not typical (aka rational). I'm sure it'll be a great boat. The message I get is that the CS36 is dead?

    rules : how much room are you entitled to

    If I were blue I might not like it but I also wouldn't complain or try to take them up. Custom & opinion seem to vary from area to area & fleet to fleet.

    Can someone help me make my lead mine actually move

    There's a lot of good advice being given here. If the boat moving in lighter airs is important, you might think about a different boat simply because you can try all sorts of different things, configs & gadgets but you'll going to continue to run into those low low performance SA/D ratio &...

    Hurricane Kay near San Diego

    Weather is hard to predict, I get that. As Hurricane Kay meanders north the various predictions get more & more disparate. Seems like it will be less than 30kts, maybe half an inch of rain. I guess the big question is how warm the water is & how quickly Kay will dissipate. Won't the Longshore...

    Asymmetric set-up

    Re-read my posts. I was calling myself stupid for not understanding the description. We go inside jibes. Outside is slower and after dropping the sheet underneath the bow more than once, the only way to go. Inside or outside the sheets always ran over the tack line

    New Beneteau First 36

    If it were me, and unfortunately it's not, I'd be thinking about the extra weight aloft of a bunch of cars w/bearings vs. w/o bearings. I'm sure it's going to be an awesome ride.
