kjango-
"Is there a prejudice against singlehanding that I am unaware of ??? " Prejudice implies many things including being groundless. Many of us have nothing against singlehanding--within limits. But if you're doing it for more than one long day or night, then you are probably going to need sleep, which leaves the vessel without a watch, in violation of COLREGS, and being operated by someone who is now going to be suffering from sleep deprivation and fatigue, both of which are proven to cause error rates and accident rates to skyrocket. So singlehanding in passagemaking? Pretty much fits the legal standards of grossly irresponsible, even if superman thinks otherwise.
There may be reasons to do it, and places where it can be done nmore or less safely, but there are also enough reports of singlehanders going up on reefs and rocks because, oops, they just overslept when fatigue kicked in.
Prejudice? No. Sound logic and a preference for vessels with a more adequate watch.

Gary-
You've obviously never spent quality time with stoners. The thought of a stoner even attempting to sit UPRIGHT in a chair instead of slouching down and relaxing in it...What next, you'll be doing the Lay's potato chip test? "Bet you can't eat just one!" The stoner will have the advantage on that one, they can count to "one" repeatedly with no memory that they've already done that.
No, I don't want stoners, drunks, supermen, or folks experiencing radical side effects from prescrption drugs on the helm. Offwatch...a different standard applies.

And of course speaking of drugs, when I'm on scop I give clear notice to all that I may literally become a pyschotic axe murderer, but at least I won't be seasick. Yes, scop can do that while it blows out your eyesight and interrupts your heart rhythm. But given those choices versus being horribly seasick...everyone seems to agree an axe murderer on board isn't a lot worry about. :-)

Re: Seasick & Singlehanding

Well we are speaking of people who Lord knows by what means they may use and being so how many others may or may be "acceptable" in whatever plans they might have drawn. I mean lets be real here, doctors don't put NORMAL people onto a heavy hitting happy pill (floods the brain with serotonin) unless there is a serious ditch on the road to be recond with right? I mean look at how this med works,,,,,,might as well have a meth addict at the helm.

Re: Seasick & Singlehanding

Uh huh and lets make it illegal to single hand too. I mean Lord only knows those who do so are sick so and deranged that they need to be taken into a counseling center and talked down on about their sick and weird ways. BURN THOSE WITCHES BEFORE THEY BREED!

Re: Seasick & Singlehanding

Mocking your user name? Please spare me????????????????????
However waking up in a hove to situation to the smell of burning self tailing winch and the sight of a body strangled form the mast head ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
If you people want to trash pot heads then do "ahead" DO IT!
Your self serving need to justify the immense prison population and the taxpayer's expenditure on is well noted.
Just CALL THE COPS!
Good Lord,,,,,if all I had to worry about was some pot head steering a boat my own sleep would go much better.
Get a LIFE!

Re: Seasick & Singlehanding

At least I can trust a pot head to not leave 160 pounds decaying human meat hanging from my mast head like some Paxil user might.
If you want to continue to beat this drum against pot heads I am all into doing so.
