re: Gelcoat rejuvenator. Anyone have experience with it? - splastiko on 9/15/16 at 11:06 am

I used the 3M Finesse It polish and Collinite paste wax. I was very pleased with the outcome. This was done during a haul out tw...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Electric smokers -- anybody got one? - splastiko on 7/26/16 at 8:23 am
FWIW, I have never used an electric smoker, but will say as another possible option, look into a UDS (ugly drum smoker). They require minimal effort, and turn out some really good bbq. I built one, and used it for about 5 years, ended up building one for my BIL and father, both of them love theirs. ...

I sail out of SWLA and plan on doing some charters in the future too. Emerald Coast Yachts in Pensacola is a charter company and sailing school. They do "live-aboard" sailing classes so you'll be able to learn and have the enjoyment of a charter in one. I have not used them, but the wife and I h...

My daughter is 10 months, and around 18 lbs. I am considering the infant one from Mustang Survival. I like their adult products. We have a mid sized sailboat, with all the things to trip over as she gets more mobile, I want something good. Safety is number 1, price doesn't really matter.

All the time. Thats not a bad price to have access to boats. More than likely, you'll meet other sailors with lots of opportunity to crew on race boats, which is a great way to learn. Roger, I recently bought my first "big boat" (cabin / galley / multiple systems). I had considered something in ...
