Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

That is cool. Good on Brent. Actually, it's what any designer of one-offs should do for their clients.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Ah, it's okay. There's one reason BS hammers on Hunter: It's because I have one...and it has beautiful lines, goes really fast, is super-comfortable and luxurious, keeps us safe, and isn't at all the...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

I totally agree with you here Minne. What's intriguing to me about this case - in general - is the seeming expectation that a satphone would/should infallibly provide access to "first-world quality...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Med - I completely understand, and agree with what you're saying in general. And I want to make it clear that the mayday in this case was the best possible outcome. Absolutely no argument there.

Absolutely. I totally agree, Brent. It's even better to spend less than $20K on one of the many BS boats people are desperately trying to offload so they can buy a...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

I'm really talking more about the parental aspect of this than the EMT aspect. However, the EMT aspect would certainly imply more training/knowledge, or at least the drive to get more...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
