    Who all sails 420's?

    I sail 420's. There are quite a few threads about the c420 on Sailing Anarchy, but most of them just put it down and write it off as inferior to the 29er.

    Splicing tools

    @49208 - yeah, I guess that would work. I'll try that tonight I assume I insert the coat hanger on the curved hook part of the coat hanger, since that seems like the only logical place. @Looserlu - those videos were solid, I guess thats the way to go on the taper. it helped a lot. I...

    Splicing tools

    42908, Yeah, I had considered the coat hanger. I'm having a bit of trouble imagining how this is all going to come together. So....... When I'm ready to bury the tail, I get the coat hanger (which I suppose is cut up so that its a fairly long straight piece of metal bent in half to form a...

    Splicing tools

    Hello, I've recently gotten interested in splicing. I've googled around, and found this article: http://www.roostersailing.com/articles/Info_Sheet_Fidding.htm I've tried a few times to splice some 4mm spectra and have been successful up to the bury. It just seems way too tight, and I don't...

    Laser rentals on Oahu?

    Well it really depends where you're gonna be. If you are gonna be on the windward side (kaneohe, kailua) then contact Kaneohe Yacht Club, they can hook you up with a club laser. If you're gonna be on the waikiki side, then contact Waikiki Yacht Club or Hawaii Yacht club. They have lasers...

    Ronstan RF62100/Fredriksen Discontinued!

    GASP! I was browsing Colie Sails today, and I saw somewhere that there was a rumor that the Ronstan Freddie 60mm is discontinued! I went to the ronstan site, and sure enough the best ratchet they have has been discontinued! Could this be an effort to increase their orbit sails? source...

    Bzzz Mainsheet - Group purchase - USA

    good choice in mainsheets! I bought one of these from APS a month or so ago, and although everyone teases me about it's striped nature, it is lightweight and never tangles, and goes well through blocks. I just couldn't handle the rough rooster 7mm anymore. I don't want anymore, but just...

    Line types for laser pro

    Hey, Yeah, it will not work to switch the purple excel racing with the turquoise spectra because the turquoise is too long and the purple excel racing is too thin and small. What you want in the end is to have 3/16" or 5mm excel racing or whatever you prefer (some prefer maffioli swiftcord...

    Outhaul/Downhaul console screw-holes stripped

    Thanks for the responses! What we thought was to put the epoxy in with a syringe like the past poster said and then quickly flip the boat over, and tape the holes. This way, it won't drip. My dad has really thought it through. Thanks for your help so far. Any extra solutions would help as...

    Line types for laser pro

    Hello, lol it's funny how the last few posts haven't really had anything to do with your topic... Anyways, from the first attachment, it's pretty evident to me which types of line are which. The ones that don't feel slippery are called excel racing, and they do come stock from vanguard. The...

    Outhaul/Downhaul console screw-holes stripped

    Hi. The center 2 cleat area that cleats off the outhaul and downhaul is secured by two holes fore and aft. I took off the cleat console (is there another name?) the other day to see why, whenever I tightened the screws, the console would still wiggle. I unscrewed the screws and I cleaned out...

    Zen Sport Tillers and Ext.

    yeah, they seem like really cool tillers and extentions. I assume the roller is like a ball bearing? Pretty specialized company, huh? Very beautiful carbon though.:eek:

    Zen Sport Tillers and Ext.

    Hi, I was browsing around on google a little bit lately, and I stumbled upon this site I'd never seen before. It was called Zen Sport (www.zensport.co.nz) and it sold carbon stuff. It sells carbon laser tillers and extensions too. They looked really amazing in the pictures, and the thing...
