Boat and Hardware Modification / Re: Light through hull ?
« Last post by spsexton on Today at 12:10:12 PM »
It just seemed odd, since I've never seen this on my CP16 when working in the (enclosed) anchor locker or with my head in the lazarette. But I have a dark blue gelcoat, so that may be blocking all of the light.

CP-23's / Sibs Weekend
« Last post by Bristol14 on Today at 10:59:31 AM »
Had a nice weekend with my siblings. Got them out both days: fishing on Saturday (who says you can't fish from a sailboat and a nice sail on Sunday. I even got my younger sister to try the tiller and she took to it like she'd been sailing for years.

I sailed my eclipse the day before the eclipse-do I get honorable mention?

Looking cloudy here with good chance of rain for eclipse time.  Besides, I'd look pretty silly (OK, more silly) sailing around the lake with my welding helmit on!

CP-19's / Re: replacing roller furling jib

On my older CDI furler, the messenger line is secured to a black plastic clip with a hole in the center. The clip is attached to the internal halyard in the foil. When you lower the jib, the messenger line (and clip) raise to the top of the foil. When you raise the jib, you pull on the messenger line and then secure the black plastic clip to a ring at the top of the drum with separate line shorter line after disconnecting the messenger line. At leads that's how my furler works...

Don't feel bad, this kind of freaked me out when I was working on a better access to Mudlark's anchor locker.

Annual Charity Boat Auction Labor Day Weekend in St. Michael's MD (see http://cbmm.org/support/boat-donation-program/

I hope y'all don't mind... As a Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum member living in Florida, this is one way I can help the museum (other than $$$$).

Although there are no Com-Pacs this year, here are some classic boats that may be of interest to CPYOA members (... lucky enough to be wed to an admiral who lets them be boat collectors, too).

    Marshall Cat Sanderling 18 w/Yanmar diesel, green hull

    34' Herreshoff Meadowlark Ketch; stored indoors since restoration

    Pulsifer Hampton Launch; an all wood beauty!; freshly varnished and serviced

    Mystic 20 Catboat w/Yanmar diesel

    18' Classic Launch restored wooden launch; fresh Awlgrip flag blue hull and brightwork

    31' Herreshoff Cat/Ketch; self-standing mast and wishbone boom; diesel

Many more are listed on the webpage.

To All -- Have a great Labor Day weekend!  Sail Away!

Thanks for the info. We've had our boat for less he a month and love it. Its on Guntersville lake in Alabama.
In a CDI manual found on the web its says to attach a messenger to the halyard before you lower the jib. How do you attach these two lines together to form a secure but narrow joint?                                  Doug
