You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Yeah, but he goes around pretending to be a girl. Maybe we should change his name to Kinger.

Of course after those pictures he put up maybe Klingon is more like it!!!

Boat 10.5' wide, fenders 6-8" wide on each side...12' wide slip.

Unless you're a racer, in which case 10.5' plus the thickness of two playing cards is considered adequate clearance, and a good coat of wax will take care of any rubbing.

Seriously, Rick, unless you are building your own slip? Usually you just tell 'em the length and width of your boat, and then deal with what the marina has to offer. Other factors (like turning room) may complicate the deal.

Actually the Panama Canal will accept any merchant vessel up to a 106' beam and such vessel's are known as "Panamax". It is a design constraint on virtually all merchant ships with the exception of those tankers intended for the Gulf trade. The locks are wider than 106', the exact number escapes me, but not alot. The only vessels granted exemption by the canal authority are military, notably aircraft carriers, which can take advantage of it with a slightly wider beam.
If memory serves, Big Mo and her sisters are just under 900' LOA. About the size of a "handy size" tanker today.

Right.....lets see....been busy while I was off, have we???

OK, my points are.....

1)This is the stupidest thread I have read here in the last few days, after the deck step / keel step mast one, including its questions and their wise answers for that matter.

(Dear God…I shouldn’t have said that…I apologize….please be with the starving Pigmies down in New Guinea…).

2)But since you’re new here, you’ll get a Mulligan… now go back and start another thread.
This time, please make sure you’re not drunk…..ask something useful, like:

what anchor to use during a force 10 gale, or….. if a 21’ Catalina is good for blue water passage, from Greenland to South Africa, assuming the crew is composed by 3 NY drag Queens, 2 Orthodox priests, a skinny Rabbi, and a sheep with multiple sclerosis.

You may even ask why some boats have 2 wheels, or why T’s OLD boat sails backwards instead of forward…..

But how wide should a slip be???

If your boat fits, there’s your answer....That’s like asking how big should a dick be….

3)If your boat is an OLD Tartan 34C , an 8’ slip is good, because its side will bend inwards, due to lack of internal structural strength.

(Ats funny 'ite there, I do'nt care whoyar!)


4)If you have a boat next to you, you can push him, now he has the thin slip and your problem is solved!!! I push everyone around!!!

5)If you have a Trimaran…..well that does not classify as a boat, and normally stay outside…..



Now….unsolved matters....Mr. Cam….you no good moderator of the “Ministry of funny walks”, why would I want to be funny???

No need….with some of the comedian answers one gets here on these threads, no need to be funny. Just sit here and read them….

SD, I'm lost on the speling of my BOAT's name....care to explain??

Hey T you're the one sailing a Klingon ship....they were on TV in the end of the 80's!!!eheheheheheeh What's a Kinger??

Klinger- / G- I was afraid that one might be lost on you. I forgot that TV hadn't made it to Portugal by the time "MASH" was on. (I think you guys were busy discovering the west coast of Africa.)
