Re: Anchor failure and use of a handgun result in loss of cruising yacht...

I figured it had the three best elements of a Sailnet thread:

1: Loss of a Yacht. Man we eat that stuff UP!.
2: Anchor. I still can't resist reading every anchor thread.
3: Guns. Don't usually read them, but most do.

Did I miss any ingredients for the perfect thread?

you needed to add something about taxes or some regulation they want to put on boats.. then it would have been a perfect storm

I solder my connections and use wire nuts, but only for critical applications below the waterline and aloft above the 3rd spreaders.

Good one!

How about:
  • Best keel type?
  • What makes a bluewater boat?

Seems they get re-hashed quite a bit...
