    Under deck mast support broken

    I just went through this - again. The last time I tried to fix this, I removed the mast step bracket; drilled holes into the fiber glass and injected epoxy; and then will the cracks and leveled the surface with MarineTex. ...what a disaster. This only kept everything solid for a while, but...

    1987 Missing Hatch Cover

    I use the old hatch as a template, but you could make a pattern out of cardboard. I bought my board at West Marine too, and I believe it cost about $30. Goodluck, Dave

    Teak Splash Cowl

    I agree with Richard. When I repaired the tabernacle in my boat, I removed the splash rail, which was the original reason why the tabernacle rotted. (The screws that held the splash rails in place had stripped out of their holes, and water had seeped - flooded in, and rotted away half the...

    Too hot to sail...

    I finally got to sail today, and I don't mean sitting on the water for hours barely moving and getting burnt to a crisp. It was 80 degrees with 10-14 mph winds, a few clouds, and just plain beautiful. I saw only a handful of powerboats and three jet-skis (which is amazing for this lake), and...

    Too hot to sail...

    Well, I have one weekend off before I start school again. I sure hope that conditions are favorable. Last year, school and weather sometimes interferred, but at least none of my classes were on Saturday. However, this time last year, my boat was down for major repairs. I think it is time...

    Too hot to sail...

    I would glady trade a little heat for a little wind. I've been in school every Saturday for the last two months, and studying every Sunday. Yesterday wthe last class of the semester, so I prepared to go sail today. The sun was out and it was a really pretty day, but there was no wind at all...

    Too hot to sail...

    Now that's more like it! My wife and I may finally get to go sailing at least once Friday, Sunday, or Monday! :) (...and the weather looks as if it will be darn near perfect!)
