Thumbs down Re: Can anyone give me a valid reason to carry a firearm?

Got an RCW for this? Don't buy it, haven't heard of it. If it was a law, the Coast Gaurd inspections just went to Davy Jones Locker. No one would be Coast Guard compliant without gun registry on...

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

What Capt Jack is saying is something you're not getting. He doesn't need anyone's approval to do anything. That's what's wrong in our world today... everything you say and do has to be PC approved...

Re: Engine Raw Water Plumbing Diameter

Hey 59r,

You didn't do anything except make the hole in your boat bigger. If your raw water cooling system works with 1/2", reduce the inlet and no worries. I have 3/4" everyhing to the pump, then...

Re: Cabin comfort when motoring

I concur with the noises and rattles. We hava an "automobile" style heater core with water hoses from the engine... works just like your car. When we're motoring under way, the heater can be turned...

Re: Bigger is better & faster?

As a rule... longer waterline means it's scientifically capable of a higher speed. But then the variables come into play: sail area, boat hull design, crew capapbility and even the sails themselves....

Re: Coastal sailing without depth finder?

Here's the deal. If you run aground and can jump in the water and "unstuck" yourself, no big, you don't need one. Otherwise.... please don't become a statistic.

Re: I Equate it to Driving in a Bad Snow Storm!

Yes, it is silly. You stated you don't feel like you have control with just 10-13k of wind. Your boat is capable of 20k winds easy. Should you need to reef with just 10-13k? I'd say no (looking at...

Re: Suzuki 2.5 security to dink

Yes they do... about 40% of the time. The trick to not getting bit is pull that sucker like you're trying to pull the starter cord out and you'll be OK (don't do a 1' baby pull). I used to be a...

Re: Topclimber bosun's chair

I have the Mast Climber. Works as advertized. Was fun actually. The condition of your halyard is what I'd pay attention to. An old, moldy, hard crusty halyard... would be asking for trouble. I like...

Re: How many sailors actually know how to sail?

Provocative at best. What's realistic about telling the sailing community most of them don't know how to set sails for given conditions? According to who? Who cares? If racer X can sail with full...

Re: How do you rate your marina/mooring ?
