    water in the wrong place Catalina 380

    Your "Fore peak", is that a locker under the Vee berth or the forward cabin sole or what exactly? Leaks forward emanate from toe rail/stanchion bedding issues, (i.e., the mounting holes/screws leak), or port lights that leak, or leaking overhead hatches or dorade vents. Or it could be the...

    Is that "Bounty" still out there? (I know it's not the Brando Bounty that sunk recently)

    How to Fix Throttle Creep?

    And the mystery deepens... I disassembled the pedestal further to analyze the "drill and tap" procedure and I found the screws! They are on the bottom of the control tier! Why, I got no clue. I believe it's the "bottom" because, in it's original orientation, the part number that is cast on...

    1991 P42 Bow Rollers

    Unless things changed dramatically over the years, the Hunter factory never rigged an anchor on a retail sold boat. The dealer did all the commissioning from the boxes of goodies that Hunter shipped with the boat or, had the commissioning crew bring to the site. And to me, that begs the...

    1991 P42 Bow Rollers

    You could buy rollers that are sold for the front of power boat trailers. Don't know what size you'd need, but go to Defender.com and see what sizes they sell, what they run and their composition. I've read of others who said that they worked in a similar application.

    Teak Deck removal questions

    Sailem*, that's a good video too. Sadly, the couple in it bagged the boat you see in the vid, then bought a smaller "fixer upper", didn't do any work on it and then flew to Japan...never to be heard from (on You Tube) again!

    Teak Deck removal questions

    Assuming the teak is screwed to the deck, how much would someone charge to remove a thousand old screws? Don't forget to include time to drill out or wrestle out the broken headed screws (perhaps 30% of them). There are several You Tube Vloggers who have undertaken this chore. "Learning the...

    What do they call the wind?

    jssailem, The island I live on gets a strong wind pattern every summer and fall. People write songs about them. They do movies about the wind and the places and people these winds affect. Meteorologists memorialize them in records they keep forever. The problem is, they don't keep the same...

    Rig-Talk and traditional LapStrake

    Wow! A lot of historical goodies in this post. I discovered through an ancestry/DNA test and research that I am descended from some of those Norsemen who went Viking in about 850 AD when they visited Francia and decided to stay.

    Re-rigging outhaul and reef lines on a 1986 Hunter 3r

    Google "Slab reefing" and "in boom reefing" to start getting some ideas. All my pics are at the shop or I'd post some myself.

    Re-rigging outhaul and reef lines on a 1986 Hunter 3r

    How many sheaves do you have on the rear end of your boom? What lines, if any, are currently being used on these sheaves? What are they attached to? I ask all these questions so as to find a common point of reference in an explanation. Various suppliers and Hunter rigged the same hull design in...

    Medical Insurance for Cruising

    Oh the things you learn on this Blog! Things have probably changed over the years but... 40 years ago my wife had to have emergency surgery in Canada. I can't begin to tell you how well we were treated by our northern cousins. And we never got a bill! I will always be grateful. G.
