Re: Boat Safety Stuff

6. Air horn or other appropriate noise making device. Also a laminated card with the horn blowing codes used in navigation. Where can we get one of these cards? Hmmm, Seems to me I got one of those from the Seattle Boat Show as a Free thing some vendor was handing out. Now I can't find it. So lets ...

Fully stocked, everyone knows where it's at. 3. Flairs. Up to date, separated from expired flairs, every o...

Ah Bill you sent me scrambling to Google. What is a "Stemhead Fitting" anyway? Please correct me if my findings are wrong. It is the metal deck attach point for my standing rigging for the fore stay and another for the back stay. Most of what I find on the internet seem to be the fore stay. Enquirei...

Most excellent sailing report. That vortex sounds like the wind born version of Deception Pass where the whirl pools are bigger across then the boat is long. ONLY go through there on a slack tide, or better yet go around the Island and skip the pass all together. Nah, I'll go through the pass on the...

The term "Blinding flash of the Obvious." Seeing this done right, slap the fore head. Say "I could have had a V8." Clearly this is the way to go and it will be added to my wish list.

Man that is truly a excellent idea, expertly executed, lovingly crafted.

Thank you for showing this.

OEM C-22 Stainless Steel Pin for Rasing the Mast

Hi All, About a year ago, hmm maybe longer, Captain Scott and I came across a C-22 OEM Stainless Steel Pin for Rasing the Mast. You know the pin you stick in the end of your boom and the other end into the forward base of your mast. Well Captain Scott asked me to put a micrometer to it and get the e...
