Hi I saw on one of your pics that you had a cat on your boat? Can I ask a few questions? How old was your cat when you got it? Has it always been a boat cat? How does your cat handle sailing and especially sailing when it is a bit rougher out?

I'm asking as I am thinking of getting a cat but while it will spend most of the time at the dock. I want it to feel safe when going sailing.

thanks
Ren
Good evening,

I have recently purchased an "Ericson 36. I am in the process of redoing the interior of the boat. I have several areas that have been damaged due to leaking portlights and the fixed lights around the galley and navigation areas. I'm have problems finding the rubber gasket seals around the fixed portlights. Does anyone know where I might find this product. My email address is: mbarbee@comcast.net.

Thanks,

Mark

There's no weakness or design flaw, and nobody reports any trouble with the upper rudder post fitting.

The issue is just that the machine screws get loose. At the dock it;s just a matte of one person holding a screwdriver in the plate screws while you tighten the nuts underneath. In boat terms, room enough down there. To do it alone, you clamp a vice grip on the nut and then climb back out to turn the screw. Four times. Yes, it is entertaining offshore alone going seven knots. This conversation would be better on the open forum, where others would benefit and the opinions would be searchable in future. Cheers, CW
