Also, many subjects have been written about as a thread...and a simple search for the threads related to the topic in question would often result in an answer. Some questions are very common and come up repeatedly... crimp or solder, chain or rope for an anchor rode, what's the best anchor, etc. and have been answered very thoroughly.

BADG-

Main reason I wrote this is attitude is the key difference. Dogsailors' attitude is that if we weren't sailors, cruising with two bull terriers aboard the boat, that any information, advice or opinions we had was not valid. She even said as much in one of her posts. If you consider that bull terriers are not the most popular breed, and that cruising sailors are generally not dog owners, much less having two dogs aboard... the number of people who could legitimately answer the question in her eyes is almost zero.

Most of the initial responses were to her questions...but were ignored as being irrelevant, since they didn't agree with her idea that cruising with two medium-sized bull terriers is the best thing in the world for them.

Another poster who came in to the sailnet forums and was upset at the responses they had was Horseatingweeds, on his Boat as a character thread. His post and intent was vague and not very specific. He wanted information on a boat that was capable of bluewater passages and going from the Great Lakes, to Corpus Christi, TX. He didn't have a size or type of boat in mind. He didn't have even a basic idea of what kind of boat he wanted to use. Boats capable of making that journey range from a 20' Flicka, to a 62' Gunboat Cat... and the lifestyle of the person living aboard the boat will range from that of a monastic hermit to someone with all the conveniences of life ashore—satellite TV, hot and cold pressure water, washer and dryer, microwave oven, etc. Yet, when the people on this forum tried to help him focus his mind and writing abilities...he was upset.

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.

Sorry guys, was being sarcastic. The articles are great. The point i was feebly getting at was that few people seem to take advantage of them. Their loss, more entertainment for the rest of us.

Mike, I hope you're sailing on Lake of the Ozarks, as there isn't much else in Missouri worth sailing on..

T34C has a spectacular aura about T34C has a spectacular aura about T34C has a spectacular aura about
Personally I can understand people repeatedly asking questions that have been brought up before. They need to voice their concern/question and want to play an interactive role in its solution. However, when you ask the question and receive several answers, you can't keep complaining that answers aren't specific enough to your original question, i.e. Not just cruising with a dog, but a bull terrior, and not just a bull terrior but a smallish approx. 50 lb. bull terrior. NOt just a smallish, 50 lb bull terrior, but a smallish 50 lb. bull terrior that is trained to poop on a square of carpet, likes to go canoeing, and some how found hiking boots that fit, and has asperations of K2.....

Lets face it, ITS A DOG! It might be your dog, and it might be a very nice dog, but its a DOG, and as such it will behave similarly to other dogs. If you insist on beating the topic to death because of your perceived specifics then you have to expect someone to call ********.

Back in the day..

Back in the day..

Sailors, sailed the seven seas with an assortment of critters ie. cows,goats,sheep,chickens,parrots cats,dogs and yes even the occasional rat. With the introduction of refrigeration we can still maintain a fresh diet and not contend with either the input nor out of said critters in maintaining their freshness before consumption

Fair Winds,

Bill

Amen to that T34C... And, of all the dog breeds, I see bull terriers as being one of the breeds less well suited to life aboard a boat.

Did anyone read Desparate Voyage? Enroute from Panama to Austrailia, the author/sole oceanic voyager, was given pigs and chickens from south pacific islanders.

He nurtured them until prepping for consumption - one at a time. No refrigeration onboard, so he ate well for spurts at a time. When his food ran out, his wise pet rat which lived in the bilges - jumped ship before becoming the next meal.

Guess if I was that rodent, I'd rather drown than become rat sushi too.

TB-

Wouldn't be rat sushi...he probably would have cooked it first...

Besides, technically, sushi just means "vinegared rice" and has no need for raw fish or rodents.. Sashimi on the other hand is raw fish...

First i have to build the boat (15ft sharpie, wish me luck), then... Lake of the Ozarks is stinkpot hell, too close to St Looney (and Jefferson City, the state capital). It's also narrow and the wind is bloked by many tall bluffs. Stockton lake is supposed to be the best 'non-Great' lake for sailing in the midwest. (of course i live closer to Ozark Oh well, the Admiral put up with CT for years, i can find a way here, certainly not lacking for wind.
