Dog, I knew it was in fathoms when I posted. It is just my way of pointing out that everyone can make mistakes, The OP and you and me!

Oh Bubb - you're gooooooood.

Dog - to help put this all in perspective...Bubb was very cool about your WHACKED OUT FU!!!!!!!! He didn't even feel the need to use bold type and all caps. That's my point dude.

And that, Twins, is the difference. Sure Dog was right. He was just jerky and sanctimonious about it. That's all I'm sayin'. pg was asking for advice - not a kick in the stones.

My paper charts clearly state what the measurements are in... the NOAA demo site doesn't always make that clear.

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.

Bluto - I'm just sorry that I caused you to lose all your understanding of "good seamanship". You have GOT to be bummed.

Unfortunately I've just gone and poured a Friday arfternoon Bourbon and Coke which tends to make me all mellow.

If it is alright with you though I might just take a seat, pour another and watch the action unfold

Dog, You don't need the Chart Datum to tell you it is in fathoms. Just think about it. How would Toyota bring in a cargo ship full of Prius's to the port of LA in 15 feet of water.

I also don't need a weather man or wind Interments to tell me when and from where the wind is blowing.

Smack,

It is nice to have someone tell me something I did not know, like I lost all my sailing sense!

Time for bed up here on the upper left coast!

Hey mellow Chall,
I didn't know that Bourbon was popular 'Down Under'? Why not? Even Japanese Saki wine is available here but things do vary a bit.

Is there not one of us who has released a jib sheet too early or too late? Did you wait too long before the shoal or reef came up too soon to tack?

If you have been there then you know.

My boats are dying of old age along with me!
