Re: Best place in California to sail and live on your boat?

My boat's at Treasure Island. The Navy transferred the property to the city. It's extremely convenient for me, but the marina won't upgrade the docks or dredge a serious shoaling area at the entrance...

Re: Best place in California to sail and live on your boat?

I just spent the weekend racing down the South Bay from San Francisco. Our boats were tied up to the newly-built Westpoint Harbor. It's beautifully constructed with pump outs next to each slip, rub...

Re: I may try for a solo trip in Sept.

Circumstantial, but it's easy for this to play on your mind especially when you're by yourself. I enjoy pushing my limits, but it is critical to know thyself because too far can be too much. Grab a...

Re: I may try for a solo trip in Sept.

Denise, if you do go, it is very important to have an AP that works well because it is going to function as your crew when you're single-handing. You don't say if you'll be mostly sailing or...

Re: Diesel engine

I had a lot of rust on mine from a leaky water pump. Don't ditch it until you get some good advice. It doesn't take that much to clean it up, change the belts and impellers, change the oil and...

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Egzactly! It begs the question why aren't there more women at the tillers?

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

To which I'd reply, this is probably 99% of boat owners. Not really interesting in and of itself so the question to ask couples is how many times does the woman fully skipper the boat? Or how often...

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Steinhatchee!! My old stomping (and power boating) grounds. I miss the coleslaw at Roy's....it's my gold standard. Are you in a sailboat? I don't recall many sailboats in the area. Has that changed?...

There are very few women who are the primary owners of their boat :cool:

Re: tacking angles

Looks to me like something is off on your port tack. Maybe check the slack on the shrouds.

Re: Bay Area Summer Sailstice?

Are they bringing the AC 34 boat to EYC? I might have to go. A friend and I are heading out of Treasure Island at 11:00 for a sail on the bay. We might mosey up the estuary for a bit. No definite...

Any sailors in Kauai?

My friend and 7-year old son are visiting Kauai. Anyone know of day sailing (not crewing) opportunities or a charter that's reasonably priced? They've both been on my boat a couple of times but are...

Re: Crewed for the first time yesterday - wow!

Bruises. Just wear em with pride. Even with knee pads, they just show up.

It certainly sounds like you're hooked! Glad you had a great experience with a good skipper. That makes all the difference.

Re: don't give the Coast Guard any ideas

What's truly unfunny is that I saw this on a post on FaceBook and someone actually thought it was a true situation. Kinda like when Congress got bamboozled by an Onion article not too long...

Re: Inflatable PFD Failures?

This is good because it combines the harness with an inherently buoyant PFD, which most of them don't have. It would be perfect if it had a couple of small zip pockets up near the neck. The problem...

Re: Inflatable PFD Failures?

You'll also want to talk to USCG HDQ. I'd heard they're planning to get rid of the Type I, II, III, etc. ratings because the public finds them too confusing.

You might also want to talk to big...

Re: Inflatable PFD Failures?

I jumped in the pool with my Mustang (with the HIT inflator) in the SAS seminar last month. It took about 10 seconds to deploy. I found out later there is a safety recall on some of the Mustangs...

Re: Inflatable PFD Failures?

It would be a necessary and timely article. I've been thinking about this and other PFD issues a lot over the past 3 years; however, I'm not sure what inferences you'd reliably be able to make about...

Re: Pacific Race

Yes, you're right. I was just thinking about how hard it would be to see a small rowboat out there, but that's really no different than some of those 25-footers that are sailing to Hawaii. Small...
