    Taking on the fleet

    Oooh I do like that. The pvc plugs we have are hard to get out once they’re screwed in too tight, and it’s almost impossible not to screw them in too tight. I don’t think I was explaining myself very well re bulkhead. I meant a 1x2 (but actually thinking 2x2 would be better) something* cut to...

    Taking on the fleet

    Pics, as promised. On the boat with the yellow hull, should I be worried about those cracks either side of the daggerboard? On the white boat they just look like gelcoat cracks. The adhesive between deck and cockpit on all the boats seems to be in varying stages of dissolving. The boat with...

    What life jacket to wear?

    Stohlquist is the preferred PFD at my club. They are comfortable and stay in place well. My husband has it and likes it a lot. I got a women’s kayaking one for myself and don’t much like it. It has a high back intended to sort of sit on top of the seat back and gets caught on the boom when I...

I was originally on social, but there was a gap that needed to be filled, and it's in my best interest to make sure the boats...

    Taking on the fleet

    I don't have any pics to post at the moment, but I will take some on Saturday. Here is the sailing club. Some people (including us until we were shown better) launch their boats from the dock there in front. OK for an Opti, no bueno for sunfish. Not surprising some of the bailers got taken out...

    Taking on the fleet

    Been a member of my club for a year, exclusively using club boats. They are 4 Sunfish, 2 Lasers, 1 Capri 14, and a gaggle of Optis. Boat repairs are usually on an as needed basis by whomever is willing and able. But since we'll be using these boats for the foreseeable future, my husband and I...
