Re: North Carolina - best place for sailing???

There really aren''t any towns with easy access to the Albemarle. Along the Outer Banks you have really shallow water, and Manteo on Roanoke Island is a long motor out to open water. You do have some...

Re: What do you do for food on a day cruise?

Something else to consider is the weather. I love my red hot beef burritos, but not when it's 94 degrees outside.

Re: What do you do for food on a day cruise?

Kinda depends on if you just want something to eat, or you want to have a meal. But for a daysail, especially with others onboard, I just go with something simple, and then sit down to a meal at the...

Re: Lets talk about dinghies y'all

You basically have three options. Foredeck, davits or tow it. I've done all three. I prefer my davits.

Re: Anyone have experience with Force 10 heaters

I have a Force 10 propane heater that was inoperative when I bought the boat, and not something I bothered to fix, as I had no desire to run another propane line into the boat.

Re: So where the heck do you shower???

I use a solar shower, which I keep on top of my dodger (the top is hard, not canvas), and shower in the cockpit, sitting down. If there are people around, I wear swim trunks until I get to that area,...

Re: self contained battery powered LED interior lights

Check in RV stores as well. I picked up some AAA powered LEDs similar to what ChasH posted at Walmart for (I think) $20 for a 3 pack, in their RV section in automotive.

Re: Liveaboard woman alone

As to getting to an airport, if you're living at a marina, you're probably going to know folks that can give you a ride. Or, as is the case here at my marina in New Bern, you can use the shuttle to...

Re: Liveaboard woman alone

Re: Liveaboard woman alone

I guess it's a matter of perspective. There's more than going to Oriental, especially as one builds confidence with staying out longer. Down to Beaufort/Morehead City, then some open water sailing to...

Re: Liveaboard woman alone

My thinking on NC, New Bern in particular, are cost. access to protected waters and options within those waters and year round weather conditions. And while air travel would be simpler in other...

Re: Liveaboard woman alone

Barring some physical disability, of course you can do it. The real question is making sure you know what you really want to do (and will do). Because that will do the most to decide you on a boat.

Re: Is the Newport 27' a suitable liveaboard for a small family?

This is what I was referring to about thinking things through. First, WA to Mexico is not a short trip, and unlike the East Coast, it's not as friendly to coastal hopping. Plus, what I know of the...

Re: Is the Newport 27' a suitable liveaboard for a small family?

The thing I'm not getting a real clear picture of here is just what you want from the boat.

Are you merely looking for a home that floats, or a boat to journey on? You say, "till we head out to...

Re: Inland Waterway Rule changes

Regulation is not a replacement for common sense. Too bad most regulation is lacking it as well.

There's certain basic things a recreational boat should have, regardless of the cost. Beyond that,...

Re: Longer Ice life ??

You using loose ice, or some kind of block? When I was a weekender, I would put a couple of plastic quart milk jugs of water in the freezer on Monday so they would be frozen solid by Friday night...

Re: Inland Waterway Rule changes

While cost/benefit analysis certainly has a purpose in deciding the impact of regulation, safety equipment should either be necessary for responsible boat operation, or useful, but not necessary. If...

Re: Inland Waterway Rule changes

It's certainly a comfort to me to know that my tax dollars are going to someone who determines how much I can save by not having a bell on board.

You either need a piece of equipment on board, or...

Re: Picking a marina N FL- Gulf or Atlantic?

Kinda depends on what you want to do on the boat. Both areas are basically out to the ocean to sail. Though I haven't spent a lot of time in the Northern Gulf, the time I have spent was largely light...
