    Single person sailing - Easy with the Capri 14?

    Using just the main just gives me less things to distract me when sailing. It provides plenty of "go" and let me get comfortable with handling and tacking with just one sail. Once I got the hang of it, I un-furled the jib and off I went. Bigsky

    Single person sailing - Easy with the Capri 14?

    Got the bug! Welcome to the club, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. Boat looks like it's in great condition, just look for cracks in the hull. $3k sounds about right (including trailer). I paid $2k for boat, trailer and sails three years ago, but mines a 90'. This one looks like a...

    Wax recommendations?

    Great Question I'm interested to hear what others say. I spoke with a co-worker who sailed across the Atlantic, by himself, twice! I think he knows a thing or two about caring for a boat. He recommended I use softscrub with bleach to clean the hull and turtlewax with carnauba (sp?) to...

    Center Board

    Battery For Trolling Motors

    Alternative batterys Thanks for all the comments and suggestions. These seem like helpful hints for the 50+lb battery I already have. I'm looking for an alternative battery. Something that is not so big and heavy. Would a motorcycle battery do the trick? Or something that size, like a...

    Battery For Trolling Motors

    Currently, I have a MinKota 40 which seems to work well for me. The problem I have is the battery. I have seen some postings in other areas that mentioned what type of battery is used but I thought it would be helpful if we started a dedicated thread. I am presently using a deep cell...

    Trolling motor recommendation or How do I get off the shore

    You bring up a great point and it seems to come up from time to time. I know I had questions about this last year and this site and its members seem to have a good deal of information and exprerience with this topic. Once you have decided to go with an electric motor (vs. outboard), what...

    Removing painted name

    For thoes who are interested, I read the article and what it basically recommends is that you start with a mild abrasive such as toothpast (I skiped this part, I did not want to ruin my toothbrush) and work your way up. What worked for me was 000 steel wool. I wet the area slightly and...
