Monday, November 23, 2009. I seldom read sailing books any more; but recently a small boat sailor and reader of this journal generously sent me a copy of A VOYAGE OF PLEASURE: the Log of Bernard Gilboy’s Transpacific Cruise in the Boat, “Pacific” 1882-1883.
~ While I have only read Moitessier's books. I have actually met Webb Chiles in person. Apart from liking boats and sailing, I can't think of two more different personalities. I know you met Moitessier in South Africa, and so by the way did Webb (in Tahiti). Apart from their love of sailing, do you really think they are that alike? I don't see it.
When daylight gets to the other side of the world Webb should be heading into Bundaberg, Australia. It looks like he had several days of excellent sailing and a couple of days of very light winds. I'll be looking forward to reading his passage log which will probably appear here in a few days.-----
Aug 13, 2014 · With the boat on a mooring, I went to work for two months; working on the new mast, prepping the boat, freelancing as a sailing writer and helping with odd jobs in exchange for welding on the mast. In late May, I moved the boat into the harbor and myself and a hearty crew stepped my new turbo Morgan 27 rig using the rig of a 35-foot race boat.

So, when viewed from the stern, the sail enters/exits the mast from the starboard side of the mast slot.

Webb Chiles. Such words of wisdom casually encroach on Skipper’s thoughts as he surveys his pilotage notes and assesses the weather around him. From the comfort of his 14’ open boat ‘Arwen’, securely tied on to his favourite yellow mooring buoy at the southerly end of the Saltash Bridge trots; and now substantially fortified by hot tea and cheese and marmite sandwiches, it has not ...

Re: Easiest Sails for Single Hander Since it is pretty much established that a boat with compact dimensions or a monohull meets the need here, the question on how to strike the mast is the next logical one –like it might be a good idea to avoid a rig that requires a crane to lift the mast when the boat has grown to full size.

Id like to find a small, production, light weight boat with single handed blue water potential. Perhaps something like a smaller Moore 24. Perhaps 20 feet long and 1000 lbs., though even smaller might be OK. Ideas and suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
My boat came with a mast caddie that has a sticker on it from "Midwest Aquatics". The unit clamps on both the rear cross bar and the mast. Very easy to remove and adjust. I have no idea how old it is (guessing at least 10 years and probably closer to 20 or more), but the caddie seems to be fairly sturdy and everything works great.

Oct 11, 2016 · It also has the demonstrated ability to present balanced sail to the airflow with just a single spar. No other mast has this ability and please correct me if I'm wrong. In its final stages of development, I see that this balanced sail area has the possibility of even becoming "perfectly" balanced.
From the cover of the original hardcover edition: This is the story of possibly the greatest open boat voyage of all time. The first part of what will be a trilogy if the author survives to complete the future legs of his voyage, it is the gripping narrative of a 7,000 mile voyage, alone, across the Pacific in an open, unballasted, eighteen foot yawl weighing only 850 pounds.
Regarding the Lugger story, don’t forget Webb Chiles. He made it from San Diego to the Canary Islands in one. His book is quite a read. It is interesting to note that he disputes Ant Stewards voyage as being invalid for an open boat because it was decked from the bow to the mast.

trailer sailing I really can't advise you on a Catalina 25 vs Hunter. I had an Aquarius 23 that I kept on a trailer for one year. I do know that setting up the mast and launching the boat each time I went sailing got to be very old after a while. I finally kept the boat on a slip the last two years that I had her and enjoyed the boat a lot more.

On its surface, "The Open Boat" is a dutifully objective retelling of the experience of four men on a lifeboat. It's the kind of disaster story that we are familiar with reading about in the newspaper—but within that structure, it deepens and widens.
