  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: Rudder shoe source

  4. I don't want to sell her!!!

    I have #131, Sea Smoke, that I have owned for 15 years or so, and I don't want to give her up, but she's been on the hard in Scituate MA since 2010, and I'm in Lawrence KS. If I had a trailer, I'd move her here, and sale on our inland lake (Lake Perry). As it is, it seems like it would cost north...

    So as my first boat, she has been great and as a first boat to learn to sail on I do not think I could have made a better choice, but I have been racing her for 2 years now and that where my interest lay for the near future.

  9. FS: Ariel 402

    I've been a member of this forum for a few years, but this is my first post. I've done a lot of reading here, though. My Ariel is for sale in Cleveland, Ohio.

  10. New Cleats

    Here is one of two new chrome plated bronze cleats which I bought from Historical Arts and Casting to replace the Ronstan originals which I stepped on. At $200 each I don't expect them to break. Actually, it's a W/C design. Will repeat the saga of the new cleats soon.
