Re: Which AIS should I buy?

It is difficult to not be sarcastic in my reply but I will try. My post simply quoted the applicable regulation. i have no data on the percentage of commercial fishing boats that are "voluntarily...

Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

Well I was sitting in New Bern with a thermometer in the water. And a thin crust of ice around the boat. Not exactly the Neuse, that started 100 feet away on the other side of the Cunningham Bridge....

Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

Yes I think you can do this.

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

We all like the comforts of home. I am always amused by pictures of some guy at the helm in foulies with the waves bashing over him - think Robert Redford in All is Lost. I can tell you from...

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

Based on your description of your sailing, if anything I would be looking to downsize rather than upsize. Not only because bigger boats have higher costs, but because they are not as much fun to...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

So do I!!! If you inferred otherwise my apologies. The paperwork is a bitch!

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

Good conversation but I think that you have been unintentionally misleading.

Other than the famous "law of gross tonnage" (get out of the way of anything bigger than you) large ships are not the...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

I see your point and did not want to mislead. My suggestion about going out to an AIS web site (particularly for an area like Baltimore) was that the OP could get a feel for how many boats were not...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

A couple of suggestions:

1) Go out to one of the AIS web sites and zoom in on coverage for your area. Now they pretty much depend on someone having an AIS receiver on shore interfaced to the...

Re: Which sails to use

This is a mixed blessing. Lets presume you are on a reach, broad reach or run and you find yourself over-canvased. Several things happen as you turn into the wind:

1) All those nice waves sliding...

Re: Four planes, ship rescue yachtsman sailing from Brisbane

One can not really tell from the photo but given the position of the boom I would guess rig damage more than just a broken main sheet and main halyard.

Re: Which sails to use

Setting aside the humor for a moment I would re-emphasize two points:

At the top of the rig should be a double loop - most likely steel. The top of the spin gets attached to the bottom (inside) and the top of the loop gets attached to the spin halyard. On the...
