Re: ipads or tablets with built in GPS

Goodness, will the misinformation never end.

Assisted has nothing to do with online access to maps. There are dozens of GPS satellites around the globe and any gps needs to recognize a certain...

Re: RI Broker?

I'm not going to post my guy, as I've been hearing some real mixed feedback about him lately. It's now been years, since I actually used him, but the trades in the area all seem to have a problem. ...

Re: Give AIS a rest

Must not be the standing orders for coastal freight around here. I mean a mile is a long way. I could go down below, use the head, fix a sandwich and be back to the helm before I transit a mile. ...

Give AIS a rest

This was a new phenomenon. Over these last few weeks, I've repeatedly heard sailboats hailing commercial vessels, having identified the commecial vessel via AIS. Generally, a good practice to...

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

As they say in politics, this is just rallying your base, not mainstream anymore. I can't think of too many examples of this for those under 70.

Sailing is a hobby that both my wife and I have...

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

I read the point as the accusations and terms are so overused, it actual dilutes the cause wherever it is real. I do agree with that. That's not denial.

Re: Newport area during the boat show

Happy to help with any other info you might need. Sept is my fav time of year. Crowds thin, but enough activity to not feel like you missed the party. Weather is often cool and dry with good wind....

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

I agree, the lawsuit has no merit, unless there was an explicit guarantee I'm unaware of. However, losing the sat phone was why they lost their boat, the sat company just doesn't accrue liability...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

I will say again. I would not make the same decisions they did, but they just don't seem all that nuts to me. Lot's of people have made a passage like theirs in at least as questionable condition. ...

Re: Anchoring in lake weeds

If you have no current and light winds, all you really need to do is drop enough weight. Anything will work.

Re: Anchoring in lake weeds

If you're looking for a lunch hook, or something that you'll tend to, I like the grapnel idea. I would not sleep on one or leave for shore, however.

Grass is just an unreliable anchorage, no...

re: Ways to Get Boat From Long Island to Upstate NY

Core penetration? I would be seriously skeptical. For starters, that's just what you found, there will be more surprises, plus cost to transport, etc. You would be much better off finding one...

Re: New zealand debate rages re ac rules and nz not entering

The defender, by definition, always has the advantage. They pick their turf, the format, etc. Since the beginning of time, that decision would consider the option that best suited them.

Re: bottom paint prep

By the steel, you mean an iron keel? Just sand it down, prime or barrier coat and paint. If the crack is just the joint between the keel and boat, you may want to insure the keel bolts are tight...

Re: Internet Access

I think grabbing open access wifi is going to quickly become a thing of the past. We find a 3G/4G iPad is the most useful electronic device we've ever added to the boat. Data plan is $20 per month...

Re: Boat Consultant vs Broker

This is the only thing I've heard or read so far that made my eyes roll. When I'm hiring an unbiased consultant to filter the sales pitches, I hate to one from them.

Re: Wing n Wing

If you have the room, turn into a beam(ish) reach under main alone. Lash the wheel/tiller and you should hold somewhere in that range. Go forward and attach the pole to the furled sail on the...

Re: Boat Consultant vs Broker

Best of luck, you have some nice boats on your list.

Selling, however, is almost not in the cards. Everyone I know with a boat for sale over 40ft has had it listed for a couple of seasons...

Re: What to do about a 220V electrical system?

Sorry, late to the party. I have a good buddy who did this. Bought his boat in England, shipped it to Newport and had the 220v converted to 110v. Seemed like a nightmare from afar. Very costly,...
