Re: Dismasted in the Aegean - lessons to learn

No way a rig should fail in ANY wind speed. If you turtle the boat, sure, expect to be dismasted - maybe. Aside from slamming the mast into the water in a knockdown, or as the other poster...

Re: Dismasted in the Aegean - lessons to learn

Come to think of it, I can't think of a situation that it would be your fault for dismasting unless you had a knockdown. For the rig to ever come down while just sailing along, even in 50 knots is a...

Re: VSC saved me from CG boarding

It is not just your home. It is your car and your person. But not your boat.

Re: VSC saved me from CG boarding

You saw a boat that you didn't think was safe, and you immediately got off????? You took your safety into your own hands! Good for you!!!!

No they don't. Waving you through a road block and getting your emissions test is not the same as armed military boarding and searching your home at their pleasure.

Re: VSC saved me from CG boarding

You think the purpose of government is to inspect your property for your safety? Should they be able to inspect your car any time they please? Your house?

Re: VSC saved me from CG boarding

Firstly, that the federal government can board and inspect your vessel any time it pleases is outrageous. There is absolutely no national security issue going on when these boardings are conducted....

Re: docking with no motor and 20 knots

I submit that the outboard is actually a HUGE advantage in that situation. That is probably the reason people hang them off the back of their boats.

That being said, anyone motoring needs a...

Re: docking with no motor and 20 knots

Then he should practice that with the engine in neutral. A novice should not be trying to sail to the dock with no engine.

Re: What do you stow after sailing? After the season?

All of our sheets and halyards are stowed in the cockpit coiled and hanging on these clips. The jib sheets remain run through their blocks and to the rolled up jib. Keep the jib sheets lying on the...

Re: docking with no motor and 20 knots

It really depends on your sailing environment. Do you have good clear wind all the way to the slip? Then sailing to the dock should be doable. However, best not to take chances of causing...

Re: Inventing and experimenting.

Re: Inventing and experimenting.

Barry, what you cite are certainly "problems" but not physical limitations.

The system works on the ground by the differential between the ground and the moving fluid.

There is no reason why a...

Grand Haven, Michigan

In our recent cruise, we went to Grand Haven for a couple of days, and it was spectacular. We highly recommend it.

We currently have no dinghy, so we needed a slip. I did see one person anchored...

Re: Do I need new sails

The new sail advocates are not answering the right question. They are answering "will my boat sail better with new sails?" Of course it will! But do you "need" that? Will a little more speed,...
