Re: Best small petrol 4 stroke 3 or 4 h.p dingy outboard motors

The little Suzuki's have the advantage of being the lightest motors in their class.

But, as others have mentioned, they're all crap. Crummy little single cylinder pieces of junk with all the...

Re: Painting my topsides - in the water or on the hard?

Maybe he meant the entire hull, maybe he didn't. Just cluing him in so he can get better responses to his questions.

Some of the responders are clearly confused.

Re: Painting my topsides - in the water or on the hard?

Okay, so I have to wonder if you know that the "topsides" on a boat is the area of the hull between the waterline and the deck. It's hard to imagine doing that with the boat in the water.

Re: interior teak -- varnish or oil?

Make mine poly. Some variation of that is what's on my Catalina's interior right now, and any touchups will be poly.

Re: Can I use oak instead of teak?

Can you use stainless steel or Starboard in this particular application? Just asking because they're always my first choices for exterior stuff.

Re: Keeping CF pleasant

What's odd about it. You already said that reputation scoring would be especially useful for newer members. I see no reason to believe these new members can't sort things out as easily as us old...

Re: Keeping CF pleasant

Scoring members and keeping track of their "reputations" sounds a little Orwellian to me.

I operate on the assumption that new members to a forum are just as smart as I am and are perfectly...

Re: Keeping CF pleasant

Yeah, you're right. Only in the last few months have I used the ignore feature, and have used it twice. I think I hesitated because the ignore feature doesn't remove them from the just...

Re: Noob trailering question

I come from a boating background and a travel trailer background. When pulling a travel trailer all over the country, you learn to do it right or wish you had. I would definitely respect the Subaru...

Re: I thought sailing was supposed to be fun

Huh? I'm here on almost a daily basis, but I must be reading the wrong posts, because I'm not seeing rampant cynicism and bullying. Sure, there's the occasional troll, but they're generally easy to...

Re: Help from strangers while docking? A poll and my rambling musings.

I accept help only as a last resort. I'm good about having a plan and communicating it to whoever's helping, but that doesn't mean the "helper" will listen. There are a lot of interesting...

Re: New Sailor Searching for His Dream Vessel

The list of boats that would fit your criteria is very long. We can all take turns naming a particular boat, but that's not going to be of much value to you.

You're 16 and you're going to live...

Re: Major prop walk in forward

A couple of responders have been right about what you're experiencing NOT being "prop walk".

I had a Catalina 28 that suffered from the same situation you describe. The faster I went in forward...

Met a singe-handed looper in the municipal marina in Ludington, Michigan. He had a Ranger Tug 27. He was happy with it.

Re: Rename or not?

OH, OH, OH...I know...I know! That's an easy one.

Your boat, you name it.

Unless you don't plan to keep it. Because when you peel off the old name, there's going to be a ghost of the old...

Re: Need suggestions for mini spray gun and compressor for touch-ups

I'd use a roller.

And I'd have an issue with whoever applied the paint that's peeling off. That ain't right.

Re: Falling in a vessel at a boat show

My Catalina 315 is extremely unsafe. Not only are the companionway stairs steep with no handrails, sometimes they're at a 20 degree angle. In the dark!

Inexperienced sailors and a boat that's new to them. Hell no.

Re: Unhealthy Lifestyle = Greater Risk

IMO, it was Obama's end game to nationalize health care in part to make it impossible for people to be fat. Or at least, way to expensive to be fat because you'd have to pay penalties for being...
