Re: Why are the Ladies silent on Sailnet?

If we should make it out of here before the hurricanes start coming in, we'll go for the destination of Ecuador, and if we still want to continue, I'd like to go to Golfo de California. It's a different kind of beauty, and my grandpa used to go down there with his daughter and her hubby on vacations after my grandma died. He was in his 90's. They all lived in Vista, California, and had a Winnebago. He loved camping out and sitting on the beach there. I'd just love to see it and sail the Sea of Cortez. Would be great. I'm so ready to get going. Can hardly wait.

years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Re: Why are the Ladies silent on Sailnet?

Hey, Zee, I keep hearing "we" and from the sounds of it, you have a new partner aboard. Cool. I checked out Barra de Navidad on Google Earth since I'd never heard of it, and it looks like the marina is very ultra nice! Is it expensive to stay at that marina? The motel is huge and pretty amazing. For the rich folk. I remember when you wrote your sailnet entries from Mazatlan earlier in the year. Now you're almost back there. I remember you saying you were (pleasantly) stuck there because of something you needed to fix on the boat. Wow, time flies. Then you're on to Golfo de CA. Are you going to go meet with the guy who was the previous owner of your boat? That would be pretty awesome to meet him. Lots of stories to share between you two. Have fun, and would love to know how these places fare as stopping points. You're quite the sailor, lady. I admire you for that! I'm not sure what I am yet...living on a boat does not make me a sailor, but at least I'm getting my seal legs. Now I'm having a problem on land...feel like I'm moving all the time. Haha. I'm an in-betweener now.

Re: Why are the Ladies silent on Sailnet?

Oh well, you know, those animals make darned good partners if you ask me. I had two dogs that were my best buds and they're both gone now...I miss them so much. My hubby's a good guy, and I'm happy with his most times. I still miss my dogs though.

I can't believe that guy who used to own your boat was such a lier and a dirt bag for leaving his ship. Geez. Too bad. I bet it WAS interesting. But not THAT interesting. Suppose you were very happy to leave there.

I asked Paul what type of anchors we have and he said a Danforth and a Plow. I don't know if these are all that great or not. From what he said, the Danforth isn't all that good in grasses. But we'll have the Plow to do that...and hopefully it'll work ok.

Give Bubbadaboatcat a big squeeze for me.

Re: Why are the Ladies silent on Sailnet?

my primary is a bruce, original bruce, and my secondary is a original cqr. both are good. is a lil trickier to set the cqr--the bruce sets most dramatically...lol..i love it

danforth makes a great kedge anchor for getting off shoals and for lunch and for second anchor use.. i own a few anchors--danforth x 2, one for dinghy and one for boat, mushroom for dink, yachtsman/fisherman for coral or wtf, and my 2 on bow, cqr and bruce.
i use all chain rode for safety and security

guy who used to own boat was like the others---negligent--isall good--i own her now andis improving as she goes..love her..is a good boat.

bubba says meouw to ye--he is sulking due to lack of fancy feast in am...he is fat--is on a diet, and sulking.

Re: Why are the Ladies silent on Sailnet?

Wow, you do have a lot of anchors!! We'll probably acquire more as we go. Thanks for the description of what you use them for...that helps to know. Doesn't all chain rode weigh your boat down? What size boat is your solitary bird? Ours is a 36'. It's a racer (not because we race, but because I liked her and she was affordable.) She's not as broad due to her being a racer, but she's cozy. I like cozy. Wouldn't mind having a bit bigger boat though for extra storage...but, as you say, is all good. Work with what we've got.

Poor Bubba! haha!! I know how it feels to diet...am doing that now and miss my tasty food, too. / He'll be a super happy cat when he gets more fancy feast. He'll be charging towards his fancy feast food and gobble it down in less than a minute!

Off to the chiropractor this morning...Paul has a really bad back...has broken it twice, and we've found that boat work can be hard on the back. Does he stop when it starts to hurt? NOOOOO! So off we go to the chiropractor.

Re: Why are the Ladies silent on Sailnet?

my formosa is only 9 000 pounds lighter than spec--is spozed to be 34000 pounds. i dont mind weight on my boat--it takes over 1000 pounds to make any difference in the boat, so isnt like a huge deal. i like weight in my boats--smoother ride....as long as weight is distributed properly, is no big deal.

heavy stern makes bow pound. weight on ends is hobbyhorsing. i get a lurching roll when tankage is empty. so i dont mind extra ballast

bubba is ignoring me

formosa 41--40.9 documented ft, per documentation, so is what i pay mexirent on. 28000 pounds displacement , empty...41x12.2x6'6"

Re: Why are the Ladies silent on Sailnet?

Nice big boat! Ours is 36x11.11x4'8" and Sea Casa weighs 15,000 (6K of that is in the keel). What is mexirent like per foot? Hopefully not too bad.

Is Bubba wanting his fancy feast? That's why he's ignoring you, huh? Stinker! Cats are definitely tempermental and will tell you in some way or other that they're unhappy.

We're thinking about putting more chain, but it's pricey and we may need to just go with the line and the chain is about 38'. Total of about 140'. We're also thinking of maybe picking up an third anchor, but maybe they're less expensive in other countries? Maybe not, too. I know anything imported is pricier than in the U.S. I can see what you mean about the extra ballast keeping the boat more steady and sailing smoother. Makes total sense to me.

Hope you're having a calm evening. Where are you docked/moored/anchored right now? What's the weather like? It was so nice here in Kemah today. We had low 70 degrees, a bit of cool wind, and lovely sky. It's supposed to get chilly in the next couple of days, so time to put back on the long sleeves and jeans. I like it a little cool though. Love to snuggle into the blankets. Since we moved over here and on the boat at end of January, the weather has been mostly like spring. March had some strong winds, but not a lot of rain.
I know when one sails, weather becomes very important. I've always watched the weather, mainly because I used to have a small landscaping business in Santa Fe, NM and had to be aware of weather conditions all the time. Enjoy maps, weather, stuff like that.

Sleep well tonight.

Diane
