I have all double braid polyester on board. Some version of yacht braid. Works well for almost everything
I am considering a low stretch option for the jib halyard especially. Since it's up all year on the Furler I though it would hold better over time. Will post back if I decide on anything. They so have intermediate lines that cost much less and are a big improvement over regular double braid.

We use skippers plan. We didint really shop around we just went with then right away. We pick our boat value and pay premiums based on that. They are obviously real sailors who cruise as well. When we went south they knew more about the route then we did. Easy to deal with for that coverage extension

I'd like to thank the academy and the members of the forum and member of our club... (Fade out music...)
We proudly displayed our prize in the cockpit. Can't wait to defend the title next year. Haha

We did finally get our mast up after spending three weeks rebuilding our mast step. Keep an eye out for a write up on that project.

Chris, I used a starbrite rust and stain remover and it disappeared. Must be some kind of acid. So easy. No more evidence of the icw.

Happy sailing everyone

Check out the NautiMax package from mdmarine.com (they are in Orillia). I found their towing coverage better plus dinghy and outboard were less expensive. They also seem to have the most reasonable navigation extension if we ever head south again. I’ve never had a claim though. That’s the real test.

I also use Skipper's Plan  - they are excellent and premiums are reasonable.

Hi, I'm new to this site and Alohas. 

I am hoping for some advice on boat Insurance in Ontario.  There are so many companies and my home/auto insurance does not do boats over 26 feet.  And advice would be great! 

BTW, we have an aloha32. 

Thanks in advance!

Ok the contest is closed, didn't hear from Bill Hutton but it doesn't really matter as we only has two entries and one of them was me so I am disqualified so that means the Jeff is the winner for doing a fantastic job on his 32 Elixer V.

Congratulations Jeff your award is attached.

Salwty

Oh and I signed it for Bill Hutton as he must be off sailing somewhere.

Damn, figured I was going to win the contest by default (and for spectacular decorating) but Jeff's boat is looking pretty darn festive and tastefully done.
