Re: Why Not?

Don't take this the wrong way -- but the only thing wrong with you in this circumstance, is deciding whether or not to make this voyage based on what other people are telling you. Whether that is...

Re: Why Not?

Do what makes you happy. Not what someone else thinks will make you happy. If you want to go to NYC, then do it. (Personally, I would have zero interest in sailing to NYC....) If you don't really...

Re: Don't buy a windlass from these people

I hate to point out the obvious -- ok, that's not true since I'm doing it anyway -- but if you put as much time into getting a refund from Canada Customs as you have put time into this thread.....

Re: Lost power in marina panic

You guys make a great case for a mooring. I thought the privacy and solitude was the best asset versus a slip, but now I'm not so sure.

Re: First time I swore at a customer

That's not how auto policies work. Typically, a person driving a vehicle with permission of the vehicle's owner is defined as an "insured" for purposes of a liability claim. In other words, the...

re: Privacy considerations for ignorant powerboaters

This seems like a lot of time and energy to expend just for getting waked by a powerboat. Whatever makes you happy, I guess.

Re: Biggest Decision of my Life - Need Advise

My point--perhaps hard to get--is that there's no right way to do it. (By "it" I mean any goal you might have in life.) And I couldn't help but see the irony of a 50-something living and working on...

Re: A little Pollution Anyone?

State and local governments are not immune from suit under the Clean Water Act which is the primary statute at issue when dealing with illegal discharges of sewage.

Re: Leather Disgrace

If you are not racing, how often do you really need sailing gloves to sail? About as often as you need driving gloves to drive?

Re: First sailboat with Kids - need advice

You may want to re-think the importance of a cabin to you. For the kids, it can be a reprieve from the sun, or the rain, and a place to sit and eat at a table, or play a game, or even watch a movie...

Re: USCG Stole my wind!

Oh I understand that the current state of the law dictates that Coast Guard boardings are permissible. I just don't agree. How is it not a blatant violation of the 4th Amendment?

For what it's...

Re: USCG Stole my wind!

You should be commended for your tolerance of what I believe to be an illegal action.

Re: Progressive Insurance Claim question

re: Cruising may be too safe

Re: Progressive Insurance Claim question

Of course that is what the insurance industry wants you to believe. The industry works very hard to deliver that message.

In reality, it is surprisingly difficult to fake an injury and would take...

Re: Progressive Insurance Claim question

Re: Top 10 Sailing Destinations in the U.S.

I think most of those places have a lot of boats because they are near large population centers. My favorite places to sail are where I see few, if any, other boats. I sailed one time out of...

Re: slip vs. mooring

See, for me it's just the opposite. I would not be compelled to "hang out" on my boat tied to a dock within feet of other boats tied to the dock. It's like being in a parking lot, for boats. In...

Re: Bet your Marina doesn't do this on Opening day!

I'm pretty sure the people at my marina would think it is an early Halloween if someone showed up in one of those white sailor's costumes.

Re: slip vs. mooring

I would never give up my mooring for a slip. I like the privacy and the motion of the boat on a mooring. I spend quite a bit of time on the boat on the mooring, either before or after sailing, or...
