    Replacing Hiking strap bungee on a Mod 2

    Any suggestions on how to replace the bungee that holds up the hiking strap about 6 inches back from the hatch on a mod 2. Looks like it would be dead easy on mod 1 or mod 3, but with the cuddy "tube" on the mod 2 there's no way I can see to get to the back of the grommet to feed a new one...

    Mice during winter storage

    Of mice and boats, the continuing saga Well folks, if you're wondering how things turned out....... After repeated washings with every cleaning agent in the house, the cloth cuddy cover will probably be useable. The real key was a product called Atmosklear that claims to kill urine odors on...

    Mice during winter storage

    For your sake, I hope you haven't lived through this, but if you have, I need your advice. I got my mod 2 out of winter storage (a friend's barn) today and found the biggest mouse nest I've ever seen in the cuddy. I'd left old socks full of mothballs in the cockpit and the rest of the box of...

    jib sail

    I paid $225 + shipping for a white roller furling jib with a "view window" from Supersailmakers in Florida this summer. It's a perfectly good sail for daysailing. Gordon

    Tiller screw atachment to rudder

    Tiller attachment - one man's solution With any luck there should be a picture of my tiller solution attached to this message. I used a 1/8" split pin and attached it to the side with shock cord. That was probably not necessary. The cord is so short that it's not going to get in the way of...

    Daysailing Sail Recommendations ?

    First time out with new jib and reefed main I got my new jib from SuperSailmakers of Florida last week. $250 for the sail with a window about 50% bigger than the original. The new sail is cut a bit differently than the original, with a much higher clew. Setting up the boat, I found that...

    Daysailing Sail Recommendations ?

    Thanks to all for the advice. Thus far I have my name in the queue for work at a Quantum loft about an hour from here. They have a two week backlog of work, so the guy there is going to call me two days before my reef job (estimated at ~$100) is ready to be done, and I'll just drive the sail...

    Daysailing Sail Recommendations ?

    My recently purchased mod 2 needs a new jib, and I'm looking to stay with roller-furling. If doing so won't cost me a fortune, I'd like to get another colored sail, 'cause let's face it, they' re pretty. :) Does anyone have any recommendations for a choice of loft for an inexpensive...
