What do you think about the ropes? Is a 6mm rope with 520daN breaking load (means 170daN /380 lbs usual workload) tough enough for use as halyard? Martin: 6mm (about 1/4") double braid line is more than enough for a SCAMP. On my much larger boat, a Montgomery 17, i use 1/4" line for the j...

I've been busy between late Winter storms doing some things on my M17. I still need to complete buffing out the cockpit and then I’d like to put a coat of wax on the entire boat before heading to Puget Sound. I’ve scraped off the worse of the trailer’s rust and treated it with Rustoleum to keep the ...

In sailing the SCAMP I've never felt the footwell was excessively shallow ... plus when sailing usually legs feel great, as the boat is wide for her length, as bracing self with feet on edge of leeward seat.

:) no danger of that. As soon as it’s ready, I’m gonna start sailing my heart out! A good friend, we've known each other for 47 years, has a philosophy that I agree with - when he buys a new truck he does two things - ⋅ throws a bunch of shovels and rakes into the bed to scratch it up. &s...

based on the boats age i'd lean towards not worrying about the time/effort and MONEY to put on a bottom seal. the boat will dry out for MONTHS at a time and unless the resin work of the builder was REALLY BAD unlikely the boat will 'blister up'. bottom seal is sold to boats that LIVE in the water - ...
