Re: Crossing into the US from Canada

As a US boater who has been boarded by the coast guard more times than I care to count, I've never been asked about a VHF license. In fact, the only place I've ever heard about such a thing (and I...

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Even though I'm pretty sure your soul is way beyond salvation, ;) I prayed/sent good thoughts your way 2 years ago and continue to do so from time to time. I've been impressed with how you appear to...

Re: Let's see your electronics! (for science)

From experience I'd recommend the sureflow 2.8gpm model. All faucets and fittings these days are limited to 2.5gpm and the 2.8 pump will run continously while in use. Higher gpm models will cycle on...

Re: Dinghy theft protection

One thing to remember is that thieves often come in via their own tender and tie up a bunch of dinks and tow them away. Disabling your motor will be of no help here, but I imagine these kinds of...

Re: Dinghy theft protection

I used to take my old car's ignition spark plug wire with me when I would leave it at a trail-head to go backpacking (notoriously high theft area). Now I don't, not because it's not a good idea, but...

Re: Dinghy theft protection

You might see what's going on, with some google searches, in the anti-bicycle theft world. Seems like there could be some overlap of technology here. How about 10 Kryptonite bike locks chained...

Re: Dinghy theft protection

Best idea I ever heard of was to install a 5" (or larger) opening deck plate in the bottom of the hull with the opening at the waterline height of your unloaded dink. Take the plate wirh you when you...

Re: What Would You Do?

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

This is a belief I've held for a LONG time, that too much is sacrificed for the 1% of the time that you're offshore. If you read Eric Hiscock, for example, everything about the boat design (and I...

Re: What Questions Would You Want Answered?

Sounds like fun! Good luck with the talk. The usual stuff like storms and safety gear will be much asked I'm sure.

Re: Should Medsailor proactively rebuild his transmission?

My plan is to leave the overboard anti-siphon vent (AKA "the pisser") intact, and to add an anti siphon valve to the system as well. The pisser will be the primary siphon break and will be...

If you're looking for a new career, I would recommend becoming a barber, and using that as a part time job to put yourself through ultrasound (or other medical technical) school.

Re: what do you do for a living?

I would think the job that would be best for cruising would be one that pays a pension, preferably with health insurance. Outside of the military, this is pretty much unheard of now, but there are...

Re: Single-handed tips and tricks

Actually I think it is one of the most useful tips so far.

Speaking of one hand, I recommend a pee bottle and a strict rule never to pee over the side while single handing. It's too much of a...
