    A real Shackleton experience

    Justin, our bubbler works very well, I can remember one year about 14-15 years ago, the actual air temp was 14 below, but I drove out and the slip was free of ice.....just bubbling away....but it's in the garage this year... the boat is in the yard.......keep in touch....Patrick

    One summer night... or many?

    We bought our boat in 1986 and I think it is likely that we sailed less than 5 times this year so far.....It looks like the end of the sailing to me. It has been a grand time however, but things just happen that interfere with our plans...nearly every time we get to the boat we end up doing...

    I agree the possibly the missing spacer you note is the culprit....I'm going to the lake tomorrow and will take a look at mine at the goose neck....this trip assumes it will be warmer tomorrow....it is windy and frigid today. .

    Anyone replaced stanchions on an O'day 23? Advice needed

    I believe the gaskets you can purchase from D & R are butyl, or rubber and they have an adhesive side which gives a very good , tight seal.....they have holes already drilled for the stanchion base. Two people make this job much easier....you can pull down the headliner only in the area of the...

    Trailer questions for a 272

    Victor, in an ideal world where you locate the bunks will play a big part if "oil canning" occurs as noted by Victor in the previous post....normally, this does not cause any damage, but it looks rather scary...in the ideal/perfect world you can locate the stringers supporting the hull i.e, on...
