Re: Reality at Sea - For Cruisers, Singlehanders, and Normal People.

Good advice.

If you're feeling cocky, go to sea. If your not humbled by the time you get back, you weren't out long enough. :)

Re: Liberty 28

Liberty 28's are great small cruising boats. They do have a full keel and a short waterline, so know what you are getting in to, but they are also very solid and well built from what I can tell.

Re: Photos of Robert Perry production yachts

The first boat on the page, Quail, just might be my perfect cruising boat, if I were to have one custom designed. Simply beautiful and still looks functional.

If my pot stock goes to, maybe...

Re: WTB: ABI Charlie Noble and Deck Fitting

Yep, that's on my radar, and that's what I'll do if I can't find the ABI kit. But the ABI system is superior IMO in that it is designed to be removable (the Charlie Noble) and the through deck system...

Re: Headed for LI Sound and Beyond

Hi Chef,

I'm in Milford. It's a great place to stop. The anchorage near Charles Island is great in the nominal west to south-westerlies that we get for most of the summer. It's crap in wind SE to...

Re: So where the heck do you shower???

The boat I learned to sail on (racing) was a ~1984 Dehler Optima 10.1 (~34'). Skipper was about 6'5" and chose the boat for it's extra long berths. I thought it was a pretty good racer/cruiser. Can...

Re: Full Time Cruisers

Now I remember, I bought a router from you! :)

By October I should certainly have that cabin sole project done (the reason I wanted the router).

Re: Full Time Cruisers

Sorry, brainfart. Had you confused with someone else, the Pussars was flowing so I'm sure you understand. :)

Offer still stands though!

Re: Restart the search for missing sailors petition

Sadly, I have to agree. The pro's know what they are doing. They would keep searching if there was a chance.

Re: Full Time Cruisers

Congratulations! If you cruise through Island Sound later in the year, be sure to post or shoot us an email (gave you a boat card at Pussers last fall, at the boat show). It would be great to meet up...

Re: Coastal or Offshore Sailing?

Very possible! I should have put in a disclaimer that my only offshore experience has been on deliveries, never cruising my own boat, so that might change things somewhat. :)

Still, like I said, I...

Re: Coastal or Offshore Sailing?

As far as pure enjoyment goes, I enjoy coastal sailing better. You can't beat anchoring up every night and getting a full nights sleep. However, there are great things to see and experience offshore,...

Re: Drilling out stainless steel screws :(

Yeah, this is an "if all else fails" brute force kind of attack, but it works. They are called wood plug bits. They are designed so one can drill out and make their own wood plugs (bungs). I've had...

Re: Defender Sale

Oh yes, annual pilgrimage. List has been going for a while now. This is going to be a relatively light year, meaning lower four digits rather than mid four digits. :o

Re: How to sell a 32 foot Downeast sailboat

Irvine, just down the street from where the Westsails were built. Founder was from Maine, hence the name. Confusing as hell ever since though.
