    You know someone really screwed up when...

    A diesel tank drains down to half full and fills the bilge after being filled up.  Pics to follow in a bit.  Definitely a WTF moment.   Amazing how people can install things in boats without at least looking to see what they're going to drill into first. The culprit is a screw through a...

    Interesting new DIY Catamaran build

    My favorite boat repair tools.

    Would there be any interest in a thread of the best tools for boat repair that I've found?  Some are obvious, some I've never seen anyone else using.  Since my shop was robbed I'm buying all new tools, so I can post my favorites here at the same time, some will have to be assembled/modified and...

    Singlehanding a 44' cruiser?

    Before I get totally flamed for a possibly stupid question let me give a little background: Long boring bit you can skip if you just want to answer the question and won't bring up the cost of refit as an issue When I was 7 I was given a book called Great adventures in small boats, a collection...
