Re: Avoid "diegoscustommarine" on eBay for custom canvas

I think the real lesson is don't buy custom sail covers on ebay.

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Thankfully, I don't think this family will be getting "back out there" any time soon. I mean, sorta hard to testify from the middle of the Pacific. That lawsuit and all.

I have no problem at all...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

When someone states that the family should repair the boat and be on their way, it makes no difference.

Context is everything.

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

You are missing a very large part of this story.

For one, the boat sunk to the bottom of the Pacific some 900 miles off the coast of Mexico while the family was taken back to California on a Navy...

Re: Making it comfortable for her

This hammock was a great way to add some lounging space to our boat. It is unbelievably comfy. Funny thing is, my wife bought it for me, and now I hardly get a chance to use it. But, that's fine...

Re: The Grand Adventure

Have you looked into what it takes to arrive in Indonesia and stay for the "foreseeable future" in terms of visa requirements. Not sure you can just arrive, and stay indefinitely.

But, sounds...

Re: single-hand: best time raise/lower jib?

On my 26' foot boat I often raise my main at the mooring--reefing if I feel it will be needed--and the genoa is on a furler. I unfurl that as soon as I am underway, sometimes under motor power,...

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

Well, I think it's impossible for sailing to be sexist. "Sailing" is not a person capable of bias or prejudice.

But of course there are people who sail who are sexist. One definition of sexism...

Re: VSC saved me from CG boarding

Re: Who is divorced because of sailing?

Never could have bought the boat if my wife wasn't fully for it. Way too big of a money and time commitment for it to be a solo venture for only one of us. We also don't buy cars, houses, or take...

Re: docking with no motor and 20 knots

I thought the reason for an outboard was for when the wind died, so you don't get stranded.


Anyway, I still maintain that the best solution for the OP would be to transfer someone to his boat to...

Re: docking with no motor and 20 knots

Well, a novice should not be trying to dock any boat, engine or not, in tight quarters, in 20 knots of wind, period.

In 20 knots of wind, in tight quarters, on a small sailboat, an outboard...

Re: docking with no motor and 20 knots

Not sure how a power boat towing a sailboat is going to have any easier of a time getting the boat into its slip in the conditions/circumstance as described. Sounds like there was no room for a hip...

Re: docking with no motor and 20 knots

Seriously?

People actually do sail without motors.

I worked for 7 years at a 100+ slip municipal marina in a busy harbor and we rented on an hourly basis 3 Rhodes 19s with fixed keels. No...

Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

Can you really not see that for some people, listening to a guy play Pete Seeger songs on his guitar is just as painful for them, as the "rap type 'music'" is for you? Sounds pretty arrogant to...

Re: Describe your tyical daysail if you would.

Yup, absolutely. I did not mean to imply that there is a right or wrong way to take guests sailing. It is interesting how different people view the purpose of their boats. Ours is definitely not...

Re: Describe your tyical daysail if you would.

This thread has taught me that maybe I just don't like people that much. Sailing alone, with my wife and son, or with the type of friend who I can call spur of the moment and say "good wind, bring...

Re: This is getting ridiculous

It's fairly clear from the blog that they are an inexperienced couple. On the one hand, good for them for getting out there. On the other, maybe they could have better prepared themselves for...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Well, I'm not so sure that's a foregone conclusion.

These folks pointed the finger all over the place (except at themselves) giving inconsistent and illogical reasons for abandoning RH. The sick...

Re: The first man takes the sails ?

Written by Robert Hunter who claimed to have written songs while on LSD.

I am sure there is some overall theme or story to the song, as there are to most Dead songs. You'd have to look at this...

Re: Help me please, advice also helpful

Sorry to say but this "social experiment" has been around for quite some time in the form of panhandling.

I can admire the goal, but not the means.

In fact, I'm more inclined to give a buck...

Re: who gets the ticket

Really, anyone who works with and refers to the regs on a regular basis calls them just that, the regs. You'd get a funny look from someone in the legal profession if you tried to tell them that the...

Re: Catalina 22 Headsail Selection

Put the headsail on a furler. I lose some ability to point with my 150 genoa partially furled, but otherwise find it to be an adequate way to reduce the amount of sail especially if just out for a...

Re: Moorings Put Where There Weren't Moorings
