I like to cruise thru quiet anchorages all night running the generator, with the Karaoke machine blaring full volume while taking potshots at otters with a high power rifle using bullets made of spent uranium.
Anyone got a problem with that?

Heaving-to on modern boats is impossible so I don't even need to know what heaving-to means before I set out on my circumnavigation in my $2500 22' cb hunter with no sailing experience. Never bothered with a haulout or survey either, they're not in the budget because instead I bought that brand new HD video camera to record the entire trip for facebook.

That's one for the "Most annoying newbie question" post - this is the "controversial" post.

This one should be posted on a powerboat site, where you belong - you are talking to SAILORS here.

I have my wife do them, right after she finishes pressing my underwear. She doesn't get her shoes back until she's done.
