    C&C 110

    I know that some of us participate in multiple sailing forums besides this one. There was a C&C 110 specific forum on the Sailingnetworks site that has been shut down. I just wanted to let all C&C 110 owners here know that we have migrated all of the documents from the Sailingnetworks site over...

    Through hull strainer

    We had different opinions at the boatyard today regarding the correct way to install a through hull strainer like the one in this photo. Should the closed (solid) portion face forward or should the openings face forward. Extra credit if you can document your answer.

    C&C 110 Owners

    I know that some of us participate in multiple sailing forums besides Sailboatowners. There is presently a C&C 110 specific forum on the Sailingnetworks site that is going to shut down sometime before the end of the year. Unfortunately that site has experienced a lot of trouble and has been down...

    German style?

    I was reading a review about the Elan E4 in the February issue of Sail magazine. (pg 30-31) In the "Under Sail" paragraph it states "The German-style mainsheet and main traveler were particulary well situated for anyone trimming the main in a racing situation." My question is: What are the...

    Headsail trim

    I was on a friend's boat recently and noticed an odd trim condition. There are three sets of telltales equally spaced vertically along the length of the luff of the sail (typical arrangement). The upper and lower windward telltales would consistently fly properly while the center telltale would...

    Redundant navigation lights

    Is it illegal or confusing to to other boaters to display deck level navigation lights and a tri-color masthead light at the same time? My boat has both but I don't use them at the same time. Just wondering if displaying redundant navigation lights would be a problem.

    A friend of mind hit an uncharted submerged object in our local NY bay causing considerable damage to his boat. Is there an agency that this incident can be reported to? If the object was something like a submerged boat or car, would any government agency remove it? If it won't be removed, could...

    SmartPlug installation

    Has anyone replaced their Marinco 30 amp., 125 volt boatside inlet with a SmartPlug? I was wondering if the hole pattern of the SmartPlug is identical to the Marinco? I just want to get a jump start on filling holes in the fiberglass if necessary. Thanks.

    Broadside docking protection

    My new docking arrangement this season has me docking my boat broadside to a fixed dock. I don't particularly care for relying on large bumpers to keep me off the bulkhead and pilings. There seems to be a few manufacturers who offer variations of mooring whips. Anyone have opinions or first hand...
