    Looking for safety tips for sailing all alone

    New John Howard style SF bunks

    Hi all, it's been a while but I'd like to share some pics of new bunks I built for the SF. At bottom. For cushioning, I used 2 layers of a dense flooring material used in gyms, etc.. It seems pretty good, plus it was free! Also, rather than buy a sheet of plywood for just a couple of 6" strips...

    Is this bow problem fixable for using Kitty Hawk trailer?

    Hi all, I was on the verge of dropping the hammer on a Kitty Hawk trailer purchase when the following made me pause... As the pics show, there's damage to the bow, resulting in a fix using a lot of fill-in in the underlip part of the gunwale. This doesn't leave much gunwale for the bow portion...

    Trailex SUT-220-S trailer

    Hi all, http://www.castlecraft.com/faq_trailex_trailers.htm I'm considering this trailer as an option for transporting my newly-acquired and soon to be delivered SF because: a) it's lightweight and can double as a dolly (and will hopefully keep me from pulling my back out) b) the suspension is...
