I need a charging cradle and charger for a Standard Horizon HX280s that I picked up at a yard sale.
If your handheld has abandoned ship and you have a charger with no purpose in life please let me know what you want for it.
while in the water. Wouldn't do any good for the flanged type though. I'd only use this while on the boat where I could keep watch and have everything I need before starting.

Picked up a pretty dirty (stained), but in great shape, dinghy last weekend.
Yesterday I finished removing the 32 year old striping and glue and gave her a scrub with "wood bleach".
Mixed a heaping table spoon in a quart of hot (tap) water and applied with green 3m pad, scrubbing the real bad...
Don't know what a "syntax" is but was trying to steer a guy towards the SBO store for a boom vang and neither page for traditional vangs worked: http://shop.sailboatowners.com/prod.php?52017/Conventional%20Vangs%20for%20Boats%2018%20to%2026%20feet

Anyone here ever use a Ljungstrom sail? How did it work out for you and what boat did you use it on? Was it a main or jib?

Anyone else here used RAKA epoxy? What was your experience like?

Just picked one up without rig or sail. Was wondering if anyone here had seen one and remembered what kind of rig it had originally.
I'm leaning towards a sprit rig for it. I've got some light, yellow rip stop nylon and thinking of making the sail like the polytarp guys do it.

I thought this was cool. The stove isn't home built but the gimbal is. http://lezliesworld.blogspot.com/2011/05/gimbaled-stove.html
Wally World has the stove for $24.
The lady used this in the Matt Layden design "Paradox" that she built.
Took a neighbor out for a couple hours today. He's late forties and never been sailing but wanted to for a long time.
He had fun and I had fun plus I got to introduce our sport/passion/disfunction to another who has been dreaming of sailing and is already been beating up the craigslist ads.
