I had bought some fancy rulers... One you could roll across the chart and the other you could measure course or bearing angle with....
Now they sit in a box to remind me of foolish mistakes we humans make in our lifetimes.

Cool.....OK..Ok..OK.. Patiently waiting for you to hit that little +1 button...come on come on come on...you can do it.. ..I need it ..I want it...

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

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.

Great thread!

Worst stuff I bought was when I bought my first boat. Bought a fancy float coat. Seemed like a good idea but wasn't waterproof. Now, like Main-Sail I use north face Gore Tex. So much better than the marine $$$tuff.

Small solar panel. Too small to do anything useful. Still cost a bit though.

Not sure the inflatable kayak will be everything I hoped it would be. Time will tell.

Most other things were useful/essential. Of course most of my boating careear has been while poor and saving up to add things like electricity and running water to my live abord wooden boat. Oh and lots more 5200 and bilge pumps. ;-)

I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.

Great Thread, I am a bit surprised at some of the responses, but each sailor is different.

Here is one of mine, not so much of a big deal, and I am not ready to give up on it just yet.

I had to have one of those Weems and Plath oil burning lamps. They look so nice and are so traditional looking, I had to have one. I bought one, I had to, I could not resist. I think it came out and I lit it once in a year. Maybe I will try again this weekend. I have to admit, if it were properly permanently mounted it would look better and might get more use, but it gets so hot that I need to make something that will protect the bulkhead from all the heat. It looks great, but I don't use it. Will try again soon.

Oh damn you just reminded me of my Weems & Plath tide clock that has never once kept an accurate track of the tides no matter how many times I have re-set it... Complete and utter waste of money. At least the clock portion keep accurate time. I just use the GPS tide or my tide book.

Hang it in the head. The heat from that lamp will keep that small space cozy and you will have a reading lamp as you do what is necessary...

WHEW! I thought it was just me. I too have the Weems & Plath tide clock. It is never right. But the GPS works great.

At last, something in common with the great Maine Sail.
