Re: Arthur

NHC website is showing Storm Warning for NC and Hurricane Watch for NC. Possible you misinterpreted the Blue Storm Warning for removal of the Pink (hurricane watch). The Blue pretty much blotches...

Re: Pissed off crew

Yeah, but if you accepted someone's offer to assist you with a delivery and they bought a ticket based on your request that they be somewhere at a certain time, you'd surely compensate them if you...

Re: Are we doing it wrong?

If your harness is under your jacket, how do you propose to clip in?

Re: Fraud on the hook

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon

200 miles is just a miserable distance. You need the offwatch to start sleeping immediately but that never happens so you can't really get into a sleep rotation and instead you all just get tired...

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon

Re: Another boat lost in Atlantic

Re: Another boat lost in Atlantic

There has been some discussion of this on CF and some halting efforts. In particular David Old Jersey (DOJ) had a site up for a bit which he subsequently pulled. I think that it is a great idea and...

Re: What would you do you are off Hatteras ?

Re: 7 days in the Bahamas. What should I put on the list?

With 7 days, the first thing I'd put on the list would be 10 more days!
Make that 20, ha!
Seriously, make sure you slow down enough to enjoy it (take some stuff off the list . . .)

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

His plan makes plenty of sense if 30 is the "perfect" number of moorings needed to fill the entire anchorage with moorings and thereby preclude anchoring. 15 probably would have left a nice...

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

"Work will take 90-120 days and must be completed by June 30th" Or, in other words, "work must start within 10 days".

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

Is the town dock there still $1 a foot or less? If so, I suppose the moorings will be cheap $5-10 a night. They were already charging for use of the town facilities. In that case It shouldn't be...
