Re: Sailing with friends for a week, expenses?

Re: Sailing with friends for a week, expenses?

Re: Pig Stick/Burgee Staff

The spreader location is not accepted by most clubs. People do it because they're lazy and they need to show off their club affiliation but it's not usually a recognized practice. I don't know how...

Re: Sailing with friends for a week, expenses?

Like a few others have said, if I'm inviting friends to go cruising, all boat costs are my responsibility(fuel, dockage/moorings, etc.) I'll provide all anticipated meals aboard as well as an...

Re: Pig Stick/Burgee Staff

Perfect, thanks.




I'd consult your club's protocol. Most reputable clubs subscribe to the notion that the burgee should only be flown at the truck and many people seem to be of the...

Pig Stick/Burgee Staff

Re: 1995 Sabre 362 or Catalina 36MkII 2004

Sabre, just a little beefier? I wouldn't trust a Catalina in a car wash let alone at sea.

The only place I can think of in the SE Mass area that might offer winter liveaboard slips would be Fairhaven Shipyard.

A Concordia, Hinckley or Swan would be a crying shame however much like they say about lawyers, one Catalina on the beach is a good start.

Nope, I know exactly which one he's referring to. I've been just about every year that I've lived in Boston. As for other shows, the Newport in-water show in September is probably the only truly...

Thanks but the J is the boat I want. Other than an Alden 46 priced slightly over my limit, I can't think of anything I would rather have in the under 250k range.
