    lazyjacks

    I'm with Kim on this one - too much work for a trailor sailor. For me, the topping lift works just fine. Paul

    Boat Cover

    I agree with Larry. I bought mine also from the same company located here: http://www.beanbag.com/SAILOR/mainst.htm The quality is excellent, and I have had it for three years with absolutely no problems. However, I recommend that you ask them to install two vents when you order one.

    Good looking photos! Now we can see what you look like. Isn't it always great to put a face to a name. The modifications to the mainsail look really good. I'm going to try to do the same later this winter. Thanks for posting the pictures. Paul

    Cleaning up my C14 -- how to on fiberglass repair?

    Bill, I've used a product called MarineTex before for chips in fiberglass and had some pretty good results. If you are patient and careful enough, supposedly you can get a seamless, hard to detect repair (althouth I was never that good).

    Thanks Art Porter!

    Nice article in the new Mainsheet magazine about the Mod 2 cuddy. I hope someday to be able to contribute and article of that caliber.

    Kim, Yahoo says your photo album is empty. Am I just too fast? Did you tell yahoo to share the album with everyone? Paul

    GPS

    Thanks, Kim. I'll definately pick one up and give it a try next spring! I always wonder how fast I am actually traveling.

    I've never tried it. What does something like this cost?

    This sounds great, Kim. If you can't post a picture here, then please send it to me. I'm curious to see what the patches look like that you are describing. Was it difficult to put in the grommets? I'm jealous that you still have a chance to try it out. The sailing season here where I live is...

    I'm considering this hardware kit: http://secure.sailrite.com/VALUE/Itemdesc.asp?CartId={E43C56A1-0F65-4BA3-9EE3-32D3BC18920EVEREST4}&ic=430&eq=&Tp= but it looks like a lot of hardware to install (which I don't mind).

    Roller Furling

    Wow, that's a scarey story Art. Glad you made it back. I'm headed out there hopefully in November and want to rent a boat. Where did you rent from, and would you recommend the place?

    Trolling motor recommendation or How do I get off the shore

    I'm still deciding between gas and electric. I would like something for more than just getting to/from the shoreline. I would like something that could run for a bit if the wind completely dies (which it sometimes does where I live). I found this...

    Adjustable Traveler?

    Interesting point, THedstrom! I never thought of it that way. Since I sail single handed, as many of you do also, perhaps I should get a second traveler without knots for heavier winds (mine currently has the knots in it). Paul
