    I have been looking forward to watching the coverage of the Laser sailing in the Olympics. It was supposed to start today but the NBC online feed is not working. Does anyone know how to see the coverage, or when the day's summary will be on broadcast TV?

    Removing stainless rivets

    I need some basic advice about how to remove a stainless rivet without damaging the original hole so a new rivet can be installed later. What size and type of drill bit is used, and how far down does the drilling have to go to allow removal? Thanks.

    Sail trim upwind, wrinkles

    C-Vane

    I read a thread here a couple of weeks ago in which most said that they were pleased with the new C-Vane wind vane.
