Re: Bart's Bash sailing event at your club?

We're doing it in the middle of nowhere, but don't expect to have anything like 25 boats, and so aren't bothering with the Guinness record aspect of it. It was already on one of our club's race...

Re: Sailboat without a mast

The Macgregor bashers risk sounding a bit silly or uninformed if they assume ALL Macs sail the same. There was quite a lot of design variation throughout the Venture-Mac build history.

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

If so, then Rebel Heart was even less worth salvaging and wouldn't have had much chance of being worth the cost of salvage.

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

For what it's worth, here are my wild and crazy guesses about salvage:
$ 75,000 initial value of boat
vs.

$ 30,000 charter of ocean-capable towing vessel with salvage capability and 2,000-plus...

Do any C42 owner blogs talk about boosting tankage and stowage of the boats for longer passage making? Of course, that would be something people would probably do with just about any production boat...

Re: Sailing around the world on a Catalina 22 sailboat

Yeah, I'm thinking a Westerly 30 is perhaps the smallest boat that has headroom and durability enough for a troll to circumnavigate?

Many of the boats mentioned (Edel, Sandpiper, WW Potter 19) displace around 1200 lbs., which with adding trailer and gear would be too heavy, but the Siren I believe is described as being under 800...

Re: Sailing around the world on a Catalina 22 sailboat

Big boats have more room for food and water; that's nice because then you won't have to stop at a 7-11 every few days during your circumnavigation and load up on over-priced junk food.

Re: 30 ft boat capsized near San Diego

The follow-up is that it was a power boat (maybe about 28'-ish loa?) that drifted onto the beach in Tiajuana and all nine aboard were rescued. Seems to have been a ho-hum yawner as it turned out.
