Re: Do you make guests wear PFDs?

I think a plan to get the MOB back on board is a real important step. If you don't think so, try getting a 220 pound couch potato, who needs help to get out of his recliner, back on board.

Re: Derelict Catalina22 value? (bottom feeding content)

Make sure you can get the title. I know that in Florida a boat without a title is unsaleable.

Re: 50' Motor Cruiser, powered by 2 6hp outboards.

I'm not an engineer or a marine architect, but I think some of you are bashing the OP a little too much. His design could be leading edge or over the edge, but who knows if it might not be the spark...

Re: Bayview Mac Race recap

Nice report of a great race! It sure brings back memories. I sailed on GRAND SLAM, a C&C 35 back in the late 80's. We won our class 3 years straight.

Re: Is it a crazy thought?

Nice boat and it sounds like a great trip, but I am confused, are you talking about single handing from NYC to Lake Champlain? That is over 300 miles and the mast will have to be unstepped and...

Re: refurbishing wooden oars

Perfect timing for this thread. I just bought a pair of wooden oars on Craigslist for $19 to use on my dinghy. They are old and cracked, and beat up, and there are traces of at least 4 paint...

Re: USCG Documentation Fee Question

It is amazing that when you call a real person answers on the 2nd or 3rd ring. BUT it can still take 3 months (or more) to get your papers back, and if you don't dot an I or cross a T, you will go...

Re: PFD with harness

Maybe my point should be that the combintion of a harness and a Pfd, regular or inflatable, may not be the best option.

Re: PFD with harness

1. Boat capsizes

2. Tether holds them to the boat

3. Pfd inflates and and forces them into the bottom of boat

4. They can't release from tether

5. They drown

Re: Sparkman & Stephens trivia game

I remember the game, but I don't remember playing it. The price tag on the box says $1.99, so you got a great deal. My guess is that the more wine that is consumed, the more fun this game will be!

Re: Perkins 4.236 low RPM

Don't forget to make sure the prop is clean and straight. A fouled prop can cut RPM's and speed way back. Of course this doesn't explain why you can only get 1500 RPM with no load.

Re: Starting weeknight races for the first time.

I don't know what the rules are where you are going to race, but where I am, single handing is not allowed in our races. Plus, you will learn a lot with an experienced crew on board.
