  1. It's a sailboat, right? So why do we spend all our time fussing with motors, batteries, trailers.... But at least today, little Miss Suzy Q started right up. One more thing to check off the list for the first trip of the season with the CS 17, planned Saturday to Lake Mendota in Madison. 20200610_170617.mp4
  2. Hi All--I picked up a CS17 almost a year ago. Yesterday I finally got it flipped over for some maintenance on the keel. There is some exposed wood and am not sure the best way to go about this. Looking for input from the fine folks here. First, I plan to take off the aluminum rail and the two steel (not stainless) trailer "roller guards" (the aluminum covers the front 2/3 of the keel--the back only has the two guards). Next, I plan to remove the paint the length of the keel (and an inch or so on either side of it) and start removing bad wood. If it's not too bad, I'm thinking I'll fill it u
  3. Reacher and I tried something new on Saturday. We took our boats out with the PHRF fleet on Green Bay, and the heck of it was, we did pretty good! Reacher is a member at M&M YC in Menominee, Michigan, where they have a fairly active big boat racing program. This includes the annual "100 Miler" (which is only 45 miles long, for some reason) that usually attracts a lot of boats returning from the Chicago-Mackinac Race. Last Saturday, M&M held their annual Joey Shepro Memorial Doublehander, a more or less "fun race" and fundraiser for Make-a-Wish. Reacher suggested I trailer
  4. Hi All. Looking for advice on this specific ez-loader trailer type for a CS-17. I'm shopping used and hoping to be all in for under $500 and need galvanized for the salt water. First, I don't know what impact those swiveling bunks would have on a non-aluminium boat. Second, I'm trying to limit overhang to less than 4 feet. Third, while I could add keel rollers forward of the joint, it seems like a pretty big hole in the middle (between the rear and the triangle joint where I could add one). Seems like I'd want to have one there in the middle of outer space? O
  5. Almost done!
  6. Due to time constraints and wanting to spend more time with family before next deployment I switched from the EC2012 to the Ultra Marathon 2012. I took great heed of the articles of people who dropped out of the EC and regretted not making their goal. Is anyone else here entered in either race this year? Any advice for outfitting my CS17 for the race? My three todo things before race are: 1) Oarlocks (looking at http://www.duckworksbbs.com/hardware/oarlocks/index.htm) 2) Add foldup ladder on transom. 3) Mast stowage when down (need advice) for bridges. Do you guys usually row with mast u
