    Excellent! Because I'm one more failed knot away from craigslisting the entire thing!

    Yeah, NY is...a bit more stringent about things. They don’t call it the evil Empire State for nothing.

    Questions Regarding Installing New Sail

    Woof. That’s a lot of Greek. Well, I was hoping to finally get something done on this project tonight but I don’t think it’s going to happen. I think it’s time to put everything away and reevaluate whether this is all worthwhile. I’ll revisit the whole thing in a few weeks and see if I still...

    Questions Regarding Installing New Sail

    Good point. Ok, last thing (year right), how close to the interlocking eye bolts should the tack be? If I tighten up this square know it’s mashed into them. That can’t be right, right?

    Questions Regarding Installing New Sail

    Are you sure I want a square knot? This guy says it’s not for heavy loads. Given the S hook was pretty strong steel I’m having second thoughts.

    The Final Hurdle - Boat Trailer

    I would love to throw $800 at a trailer for my $100 boat, but it’s just not in the budget. I’m already nearing the $1k mark all in on this hobby that I’m still not sure I’m into, so I have to work with the budget I have. That probably means I’m either stuck with the harbor freight trailer or I...

    Can it go around like this. It won’t fit through the...holes...whatever the metal things are called.

    Checked the local sports stores, couldn't find one for less than $800. The search continues.

    Questions Regarding Installing New Sail

    This is driving me up the wall. Am I supposed to use a special S hook for this intensity sail? The sunfish sail instructions say to close the S hook using pliers but the sail tack is too big and gets in the way of being able to fully close the S hook. Should I clamp it right onto the tack of the...

    That photo is without the modifications though, right? I want to see the end result! Also, the price difference between the small and large trailer is $50. After making the modifications needed to the smaller trailer, it would actually come out to be more expensive. Worth it?

    Questions Regarding Installing New Sail

    Finally got my outhaul line. Does this look like an ok knot? Bowline at the grommet, other end through the eye, back down through the grommet, pulled tight and held with two half knots. Let me know what ya think.

    Has to be more to it than that. Where would the bow rest? Let’s see some pics!

    Maybe I should just get the larger HF one. They just came back in stock near me. $350 for the trailer, $50 in bunk material and I’m good to go.

    Yeah, I wouldn’t be able to do that because of the VIN. They’d see it when inspecting it as a homemade.

    Yeah, didn’t work out. DMV said he would have to register for a duplicate registration otherwise I wouldn’t be able to register it. Ugh.
