Let RCR Find Your Next Boat, or Sell Your Existing One!
What’s New? By Tim Finkle:   I’m writing this a day early this week since I’m leaving for Annapolis again for the third time in three weeks…good thing I love it there!  This time it is for the J/70 Fall Brawl regatta.  I’m leaving from Youngstown with boat in tow at 5:30am so we can launch the boat before the marina closes for the day.  For some reason, I have no problem waking up early when I know I’m going racing, not always that easy on other days.  I’m pretty excited for what will be our last event for a few months.  I haven’t been able to get out that much lately since putting the tiller down after Worlds.  Hopefully some of you with boats still in the water will get one last sail this weekend.
We’ve been doing a lot of clean up at our Youngstown showroom recently in order to make space for some really nice boats that warrant indoor heated storage.  We already brought in a Sabre Spirit (36ft), a Trophy 19 center console powerboat, and two J/70’s on trailers.  As the weather turns a bit more, we will have the new C&C 30 One Design, our demo J/88 and a Back Cove 30.  Talk about selection!  If you are interested in any of the above, this winter will be a good time to come in and do some warm indoor shopping in Youngstown.  Besides, don’t most people start their holiday shopping now anyway?

Sabre Spirit “Bella”
Commissioning a J/88 at the Hamilton Harbor YC: Jim Egloff and Brian Buczak are currently in Naples, Florida putting together a J/88 for a customer that is going to sail and race the boat down there this winter.  The boat was towed on its new Triad trailer from Bristol, RI where it was built.  With some help from the boat yard down there, the guys raised the mast, ran the rigging, installed electronics, autopilot, etc.  They have been treated very well and are enjoying the nice weather.  They plan to go for a sail today to see how well they did their jobs!

RCR Buffalo Annual Fall Open House, October 18-19:  Last weekend, RCR held its annual open house in Buffalo.  Another great turnout from our loyal customers and new this year was a Chili cook-off with winners getting prizes for best tasting chili.  Tim & Sue Angielczyk won the raffle prize for best attendance at our marina social events.  There is great camaraderie between slip holders in Buffalo and you will find that our marina does a lot more social activities than some of the others in the city.  We thank Chuck, Marilyn and Darren who run most of that effort, but it’s the customers who come back each year that make it all happen.

Also at our Open House was the New C&C 30 One Design, which everyone was really excited to see, and it got a lot of foot traffic.

C&C 30, Hull #3.  Please disregard the “slow” sign, that is intended for cars in the yard and not in any way reflecting the sailing ability of the boat!  Maybe we should have moved the sign??  By the way, the keel is shown semi-retracted for transport and storage.

Haul Out Day at Ashtabula YC, by Jamie Taylor:  This past Saturday I was the Ashtabula Yacht Club for the sale of a sailboat and the club's haul-out day for all boats. Because the club does not have a travel lift a large crane is hired for the day.  It's quite impressive to watch the process as members help each other pull out and cradle boats at a rate of one boat every 10 to 15 minutes. I will admit the unnerving feeling as I watched a Tartan 43 twenty feet overhead, but the crane operator has been doing this for over 40 years!
RCR Yachts also was the proud sponsor of the noontime haul-out lunchbreak. The cold wind and drizzle made the hot soup and sandwiches taste that much better! It was a pleasure to meet and talk with all the AYC members. A special thanks to Joe, Becca, Linda and Jeff.

Stories, News & Articles: 
Yacht Registration vs. Documentation:  We get this question a lot from boat buyers and we recommend that you ask us to explain it so you have a more educated reason for doing one or the other.  But here is a short article on the subject that we saw in Scuttlebutt.
(Article from Sailing Scuttlebutt, 10/14/14):  Should you document your yacht with the U.S. federal government, or does it make more sense to simply register the vessel in your state? Each state has different requirements for registration, and they all have different agencies responsible for management. So you’ll need to figure out the ins and outs of registering in your own state. And if you find there are more outs than ins, it might be time to consider documenting with the federal government.

Documenting vessels started as a way for the government to manage commercial shipping. Today, the U.S. Coast Guard is in charge of documentation and there are multiple types of vessels that can be documented—including recreational vessels. Any documented vessel may be used for recreational purposes, regardless of its endorsement, but a vessel documented with a recreational endorsement only may be used for that purpose. If you want to run a commercial fishing charter business on your boat, for example, you’ll have to document your vessel with a fishing designation even if you also use it for pleasure.
Any vessel of five net tons or more can be documented. Net tonnage is a measure of a vessel’s cargo carrying volume. It should not be confused with the vessel’s weight, which may also be expressed in tons. Most vessels more than 25 feet in length will have a cargo volume of five net tons or more.

How to Adjust a Turnbuckle (from  The concept of how to properly adjust a turnbuckle seems to sometimes elude most people. This is understandable as I didn’t use to spend my days thinking about tightening cables like I do now. So let’s take a moment to discuss how this is done properly. There are generally three different styles of turnbuckles. Yes, there are a few more styles, however these concepts should give you the gist for any turnbuckle.
First things first, always make sure that you start by taking out the cotter pins and removing any old tape. Generally, to tighten or loosen turnbuckles it is the reverse of what you have learned your whole life, “righty-tighty, lefty-loosey” is now “lefty-tighty, righty-loosey”, looking down from above.

OPEN BODY TURNBUCKLES: The open body style turnbuckle is the most common style in today’s sailboat market and will require either an adjustable wrench and a spike (a ‘beefy’ screw driver should do), or a second adjustable wrench. If you have a turnbuckle that has a swage stud at the top end, then look closely and locate the wrench flat which will be either machined or pressed into the stud by the manufacturer.

DOUBLE JAWED TURNBUCKLES: You may also have a double jawed turnbuckle which accepts an eye fitting attached to the end of the stay. In this situation it is important to keep the upper jaw/eye end from spinning by using either a spike or screwdriver. Also, please note: these turnbuckles are often installed upside down and not consistently. So figuring out which way is tight and which way is loose can be a doozie and may vary from stay to stay. It may be worth the extra time to make sure they are all configured in the same fashion, matching up with the aforementioned tightening/loosening method (“lefty-tighty, righty-loosey”).

MECHANICAL STUDS AND ROD STUDS: It is also possible that your rigging utilizes a mechanical stud at the top end of the turnbuckle. This is a similar product to that used for open body rod turnbuckles, and the same directions should be followed. Be careful in this situation as the mechanical stud will have two wrench flats, one is to tighten the cap of the mechanical stud (this is NOT the one to use and may cause the fitting to become undone!) and one is to hold the stud in place while turning the turnbuckle body. This wrench flat will sometimes be less noticeable, but if you look closely you will be able to determine which ‘flat’ holds the stud and not the cap.

TURNBUCKLES THAT UTILIZE RIGGING SCREWS (ROD AND WIRE): Next we have the rigging screw style turnbuckle, typically provided by Navtec. This looks like an open body turnbuckle, but in reverse. Instead of one body and two studs, there are two bodies and one stud. This is another typical turnbuckle found on rod rigged boats and you should follow these same guidelines here as well. Again, care must be taken to ensure that the upper end of the turnbuckle does not spin. In this case it is the upper body portion that will need to be either held in place by an adjustable wrench or a spike. Then use another wrench to turn the rigging screw by using the wrench flats on the screw.

COQUILLE OR STEM BALL TURNBUCKLES: You have probably noticed by now that I keep making the point of always holding the upper end of the turnbuckle in place, be it a stud, jaw, or body. Well, that is because in most situations the bottom of the turnbuckle is kept from spinning by the way it is pinned to the chainplate. EXCEPT, when the chainplate isn’t conventional. Beneteau and Jeanneau are notorious for these types of chainplates. They use what is called a coquille style chainplate, that means essentially, that the connection of the turnbuckle at the deck is a ball and socket type (which means it can spin freely). Here you need to either have three hands and arms, perform a bit of a magic trick or grab a friend. Both the top and bottom screws will try to spin in this case, so you will need to hold both upper and lower studs by their wrench flats. I like to go for the “magic trick” method myself, by using large vise grips to grip the lower stud. I will then place my knee near it (as I am in the crouched position) so that the vise grips become wedged up against me as they begin to spin. Then, I will go about holding the upper stud with an adjustable wrench and turning the body with my spike as usual. This maneuver can be a bit tricky, but with a little body contortion and the right tools, it can be done. OR…… simply grab a friend and have them help you :-)

When you are done make sure you line up the cotter pin holes in the studs so that the turnbuckle can be pinned. If cotter pins aren’t present then there should be locking nuts of some sort. A turnbuckle ALWAYS needs to be secured so that it cannot become undone.

TIP: No matter what type of turnbuckle you are adjusting make sure the wire, rod or whatever type of stay material you may have, does NOT turn, or is in any way able to become distorted. This can lead to shroud failure!
Remember, if in doubt you can always ask……
Read more about rigging here:

We add the following:  It is important that you make sure the threads are clean before tightening to prevent galling.  It is a good idea to lubricate the turnbuckle threads also, especially if the tension on the rigging is high. When tensioning the rig while sailing it is best to adjust the shrouds on the leeward side as they will be under less tension.  This not only makes it easier to turn but also reduces the load in the threads.  Then tack and adjust the other side.

New Boats News:
New J/112e, ready for Spring 2015 launch!  While at the Annapolis Boat Show last week, we spoke with Jeff and Al Johnstone about this new design.  They were excited about their latest new baby.  It has a somewhat higher freeboard for headroom and a cruising interior, a bit different than most of the recent J models we are used to seeing.  It still maintains the fine handling and performance traits of other J’s.

Alerion Yacht New Video and Updated Website:  Alerion Yachts just released a new video Alerion Yachts Video, which is designed to deliver a strong performance message alongside the easy-to-sail pretty daysailer one. Alerion’s are excellent performers under sail too, they race and they race well, winning 4 out of 9 awards at the Corinthian Classic for example as shown in this video. The video is also placed front and center on their recently updated website.

Flea Market & Small Boat Place:
NEW Carbon Fiber Spinnaker Pole (without end fittings):  Was purchased for a Beneteau 36.7 as a spare spinnaker pole. Selling for $1000, retail is nearly double that price.  Call Jim Egloff at 716-525-3228 or email
NEW North Sails Asymmetrical Spinnaker with Sock:  Great shape, basically brand new.  Made for a Newport 27S.  I tried it out on my Newport 27mkII and it fit great.  Would work for any boat this size like a Catalina 27 or C&C 27.  This sail belongs to one of our customers and is a steal at $700. I have it in my possession if you wish to see it.   If interested contact Darren 716-572-2312 or
