    How to enter a slip with pilings

    I've recently moved to a slip on the Chesapeake in Maryland, between two widely spaced pilings. The boat is 7-1/2 feet wide and the pilings for the slip are 16 feet wide at the entrance. Stern lines go to the pilings. It seems impossible to pick them both up simultaneously on entering. It's...

    1977 Pearson mainsail dimensions

    I'm helping a couple of new sailors with the 1977-28 Pearson that they have purchased. The previous owner had the batten pockets sewn up and there are two minor rips near the head. Before they spend money repairing the sail, I'd like to see if we could replace it with a better used main. But...

    6 HP Outboard power for an Oday 25!

    For the last 4 years we have been pushed along by a 1993 2 cycle 9.9 Mercury on our 1983 25. This year we had a problem with reliability (since solved) and not knowing how reliable the old engine would be, we chose to buy a new engine. We chose a 6 HP Tohatsu, hoping it would prove adequate...

    Solar charging, cheap

    Bought a 30 watt solar panel ($58) and controller ($18) and just wired it directly to one of the two group 24 batteries in the boat. We leave the master switch in the "both" position so both batteries charge. No permanent mounting. We just leave the panel face up on the seat in the cockpit and...

    OK -I'm repairing the centerboard for my Oday 25. Is there a simple way to re-install this thing. I'm sure some one has done this before. My guess is the swivel pin (plastic) goes into the board and the board goes up the slot. Then the wedges and then the plates to hold the wedges up. How...
