    Question about roller reefing

    Or maybe one of these low friction rings... just use a shorter pendant than seen in this photo and tie it off at the top of the mast. Run the halyard through the ring.

    Question about roller reefing

    I think the idea you mention in the second photo would work. It does not even have to be that elaborate. Any block on a short pendant attached at the top of the mast should keep your halyard from wrapping.

    Venture 17 - Cracked Keel

    You can get the old paint off of the boat by making some inexpensive "home made" peel away. Take a 5 lb bag of garden lime and mix it with about 4 cups of potassium hydroxide (drain-o, canning lyme etc). Put it all in a 5 gal PVC bucket and add just enough water to give it a melted peanut...

    garage anchor evolution

    This is a very interesting thread. It makes me want to go buy an ark welder. :) So one thing I can see as a draw back regarding the nose guard is that it will interfere with how the anchor sets in a bow roller. But I can see how it will keep the anchor from getting snagged on a root.

    Venture 17 - Cracked Keel

    You will want to fill in the grooves of the cloth with some fairing compound and then seal it up with some epoxy barrier coat and last paint it with a quality enamel paint. I like rustoleum. If you plan to keep it on the trailer, then you do not need to deal with antifouling bottom paint...

    Venture 17 - Cracked Keel

    Looks pretty good to me. Did you clean the rust off before you closed it all up? I've sailed a lot of different swing keel boats. I've owned two Macgregor V21s and a Mac V22-2, a Balboa 26, a Rhodes 22 and I now own a Hunter 26. It is not going to fall off. The real danger is the keel...
