Sliding Hatch gap (companionway)

Has anyone figured out a good method for covering the gap between the sliding hatch and the companionway door when the boat is in storage or even between uses? :macm: I continue to get a lot of sand because the wind around here picks it up off the ground and it throws it in to the interior. I’m tryi...

Re: Fun With Ladders

Any reason you couldn't mod the ladder with a strap to serve as a bottom rung? It wouldn't have to hold your full weight - just get you high enough to get your other foot on the first solid rung. And i won't take up any more space when stowed. Thats a great idea! I might even be able to adapt the r...

I just don't bend like I used to. :P
Me either! The rope ladder with rungs was downright comical trying to use it.

Fun With Ladders

I started Boat projects this week. Started with the trailer....found one bearing that had water intrusion so added that to the list. The rest were fine so I moved onto ladder accessories. I had already put the extended ladder on the back from Blue Water Yachts and it helped significantly with gettin...

Re: COVID-19 just got real

It’s our son we worry about most - he’s an EMT in St. Mary’s Hospital’s trauma center in Langhorne. We talk to him by phone and he’s OK for now, but I imagine he will become exposed at some point, if not already. Prayers for your son's health. He's on the front lines and so valuable in his position...

Re: 26M Alcohol Stove Top

Where exactly is the bilge on :macm: ? Seems like it's got such a flat bottom fumes would be travelling all over the place back and forth.

Re: Are there baffles in a 26M Ballast tank?

I saw it too. Had the same question. Thats a lot of trips to the faucet with a 1 gallon jug.

Re: Seakeeper 1 for boats 23 - 30 feet

If you have about $1,500,000, for the Sabre, the sea keeper is only a small cost. :) I too keep having to remind myself that if you have a $1.5 mill boat the cost of a peripheral system at $15-20k is not a big deal. Not a world I live in but am happy for those that can because it probably makes the...

The Admiral told me she can live with the old jeep so I settled into a 1500 Ram Ecodiesel. I haven't towed yet but should be smooth like that Silverado.

Re: T Shirts

That is fantastic. I have one from Panama City that I've worn out. Bought it when I took my sailing class, has holes in it now....probably my favorite shirt. 8) :macm:

JimmyT it doesn't seem like that far on google earth but when you zoom in it looks like a decent size island to loop around. Nice pics, thanks for sharing.

Re: Mast Raising Alterations 26M

I will keep hoping that the Mac Engineering Team here finds a better solution because I doubt I will come up with anything :) Did you have your raising stays attached at the stanchions? Yikes! I'm surprised your gin pole brackets didn't collapse. Bottom line, you've got to keep the mast virtually o...

Re: Mast Raising Alterations 26M

I have been reading this thread with great interest because I thought my mast raising pole might be broken. It sounds like it behaves like everyone else's. The most concerning mast raising event I had was in a slip. I was by myself and the mast started to swing to port as I was raising it. It was ab...
