Re: Chucking my propane stove, what to replace it with

Again, with the false equivalency.

Propane is pressurized, and offers many points of failure along the delivery path, requiring many expensive safety features, complex plumbing, and proper storage...

Re: Are we in over our heads?

I don't sense that Seafarer is the one having the panic attack, it seems to be his family.

Some people simply cannot wrap their minds around a sea-bound life. It's not the norm in our culture. The...

Re: Florida is at it again

I'm fuzzy on the issue of state vs. federal "navigable waterway".
I thought that if a waterway was designated as "navigable", that it fell under federal jurisdiction. (Army Corps of Engineers and...

Maybe you don't use a dinghy, but I've heard this argument from several diesel-acolytes who carry gasoline...

Re: Has anyone had or seen this problem ?

I could find no tuning document by Pearson, but general tuning guides for single spreader rigs with deck-stepped masts, typically call for setting them at 15% of breaking strength of the wire.

Re: Has anyone had or seen this problem ?

The P30 does have a pan liner.
The chainplates are bolted through knees glassed to the hull. (They are not glassed to the knees as in some Sabres and Irwins) The knees are more than tabbed, they are...

Re: Best outboard motor for a small inflatable?

I use a trolling motor with an Avon Redcrest. I find this to be ideal for my use.

Re: Can my boat handle racing?

People that are sour on racing aren't ever going to change their mind. Don't bother trying. Racing isn't for everyone, and that's ok.

Re: Do I need Foulies?

I wouldn't get hung up on brand names, but you should be prepared.

By "prepared" I mean, you should have a thin, warm, wicking, base layer, then a fleece-like middle layer, then a waterproof top...

Re: Singlehanding Pedestal Steering

I looked at some photos to get an idea of what you're dealing with.

I agree with Alex. For short tacking your way up a channel or river, you'll have to stand alongside the wheel in order to...
