Re: Tar tape?

The material is probably friction tape. Eric Hiscock used it with his rigging. It should be available at hardware stores. We used it on our baseball bat handles to get a better grip. Hiscock used...

Re: What is this??

I have communicated with a retired surveyor who has seen a Seaforth 24 but has never been on one or surveyed one. The expressed opinion is that they are pretty old now and unlikely to have the...

Re: What is this??

I would much prefer the CD25D than the Seaforth 24, but that is my preference. I like the traditional appearance and layout. The CD25D is a 25 foot boat where the Seaforth is actually a 20 foot...

Re: What is this??

Your (assuming you own what your profile has listed) CD 25D may well be a better boat than the Seaforth 24. It certainly is a more common design. The interior is very nice and the CDs have sterling...

Re: What is this??

I am certain that this is the boat I saw at the show then. Great boat but not for my purposes, just too small for local cruising. If I were single and wanting to go offshore back then, I would have...

Re: What is this??

i saw the Seaforth 24 at the Houston Boat Show many years ago and realized she was a very strongly built boat. Small but strong. Not many amenities but not much room inside to bounce around in...

Re: What is this??

The boat is a Seaforth 20, marketed many years ago as a very stout ocean crossing pocket cruising sailboat. I do not have any other data at my fingertips but I do have a VCR that features it;...

Re: Cetol vs TotalBoat Wood Finish

I have used Total Deck for the non-skid on my deck and I have been very pleased. If all their Total Boat products are as good as Total Deck you should be good to go.

Re: Composting Head Poll

It would be informative to add one or two more categories to the poll: other composting toilets and self built composting toilets.

Most will gravitate to a commercial product, but some will wish...

Re: Coronado 25 keel

You may be correct. I sold the Coronado many years ago. I do remember that there was no visible indication there was an exterior keel. My boat was 1969. it is reasonable that a production line...

Re: Coronado 25 keel

I owned a Coronado 25 thirty years ago. The bolt heads should be visible in the bottom of the bilge. It is possible someone filled the bilge over the bolt heads?

Re: Griptex non skid, but in Gelcoat - Not Paint

Re: Motion sickness

I certainly hope the Motionease works for you.

A old fashioned rule in medicine is to affect the cure with the least invasive technique. For sea sickness this hierarchy of treatment...

Re: Motion sickness

I first became aware of Motionease, a vertigo remedy marketed for seasickness, from an ad in the back of a sailing magazine before the internet was available. I sent a $40 check in the...

If you really like this boat, make an offer your can afford and are comfortable with. If the fellow rejects the offer, walk away. There are a lot of boats out there looking for a home. The worst...

Re: Refitting tired interior vs why fix it if it's not broken

My experience is that changing the interior design of a boat by someone other than a very skilled craftsman/designer is a recipe for lost boat value. The original design is usually the best use of...
