Re: Making experienced sailors/boat owners get an ASA 104 to charter

Chartered in Croatia with no bother, never asked nor showed credentials though I could have supplied them. Went through a smaller bareboat operator instead of a large operation, that might have...

Re: Are you a dock person or a mooring person?

Not for nothing, I prefer neither, I would rather be anchoring while cruising full time. The dream is close to being a reality.

Re: When Do You Get Off?

"When do you get off?" - I would hope it would continually get later as one gets more experience. It is what frustrates me when folks with little to no experience have to be "rescued". I have made it...

Re: Don't hate me....

Congrates on the longevity of your nuptials. I have no reason to hate you since I have been to all those destinations multiple times but I am still envious. Mythos beer is a bit too creamy for my...

Re: Auction Boats?

Never have bought a boat at auction but did recently sell a boat at auction. Didn't get the amount I bought it for but fairly close. During the auction the boat was not really available for...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

I have few of the funds. They have not set the world ablaze but am satisfied for what they are.



Ah... no, not really. I do keep up fairly well with world economies and read from 3-5 economic...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

I am not all that active in most of my investments and those I look at it over a longer time span but do have exposure around the world and do pay taxes in a number of countries including the US.

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Good on ya! But I am wary of the casino stacked market because it is rigged. That said, I too am invested across the board.

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

And if you have a bad month of active investing you will have nothing for your necessities unless you use your capital. Then, with less capital, you will need a greater return to achieve your $500....

Re: I Equate it to Driving in a Bad Snow Storm!

From what had been posted previously, I didn't see the need for stating the obvious.

Re: I Equate it to Driving in a Bad Snow Storm!

Sailing the back edge of the main is how I initially mitigate the need to reef when close hauled.

Re: knockdown vs. capsize vs. broach

The rudder stalling is the result of the broach caused by a spirited gust or if sailing DDW the boat can start to rock from side to side and the rocking can get more extreme to the point of losing...

Re: knockdown vs. capsize vs. broach

I think for a broach to occur the rudder has to stall if not the boat will simply round up. Burying the rail is not a broach. I have raced on boats where burying the rail does happen quite often. On...

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

Regardless of sexual dimorphism we all have a brain and that is where sexism originates. It is difficult to control our thoughts but we should be able to control our actions.

Re: RYA courses, how difficult are they, advice needed

Not just reading it - it is knowing it from cover to cover

Re: RYA courses, how difficult are they, advice needed

I would recommend just buying the yachtmaster theory book and learn it cover to cover. The tests for the yachtmaster and coastal skipper are both practical. I think for coastal you will need 800nm...

Re: Tiller or Wheel for Solo?

Re: Tiller or Wheel for Solo?

A factor not often considered when long distance solo sailing with a tiller is that the tiller pilot is often more exposed to the elements. If sailing in areas with a chance of big seas getting...

Re: Sailing around the world on a Sunfish - non stop

You don't have the experience. What you need to do is park the boat at a marina for 7 years. Then you will have the experience as long as you bring a baby, a sat phone and a bottle of Elmer's glue. I...
