Re: Looking for ideas Deck Hardware

Do you use a slip? One thing my PO did - and it gets a lot of positive comments - was to have a cleat amidships on the port side. Very handy when coming into my slip. I have a dock line attached to that, loop over a slip pole and voila! I'm secured and have plenty of time to do the usual for and aft...

Re: Lake Mead water level highest since 2014

Are you somehow implying that facts are more important than feelings? :P Lived in Boulder City (Best town by a dam site) for 50 years. Seen lake rise and fall. In 1982 Water went over spillway which hadn't happened since lake was filled to test spillway integrity in the forties. As you can see by th...

gel coat and carnauba wax

Just came out of a seminar hosted by a local yacht club. One of the points made for any boat with gel coat was that gel coat needs to "breath" - hence the speaker recommended using a wax with carnauba wax.

Good thinking on the sea anchor for the kayak. Why did you have the centerboard up? Were you concerned the boat would trip over it?

I'm sure it was hard to handle with the center of effort so far forward.

FYI, The GX 470/460 Lexus has a tow capacity of 6,500 lbs. Most of them are sold with a "tow prep package" and quite a few come with the factory installed hitch. 8)
