Re: Dinghy and Engine Choices

Here is an interesting option: a folding/nesting RIB. Anyone have personal experience with these? First time I've heard of them.

Re: Spinnaker shackles

From Tylaska's website: "Ideal for halyards and sheets." I've also seen them used for babystays and solent stays.

Re: When Do You Reef?

Casey: As you know, same boat as you (S&S 34), MKI and with a double spreader tall rig.

I downsize my headsail first. I've got a 135% genoa that I use in up to about 15 - 17 knots. Above that...

Would love to, but while I live on Port Washington, I will be out in Montauk then. Enjoy.

Re: Headed for LI Sound and Beyond

Chef:

You probably already know this, but the town of Port Washington maintains about 20 moorings for transients. I believe they are even free for the first 24 hours on weekends, and 48 hours...

Re: Tiller or Wheel for Solo?

If you are looking to do solo stuff, take a look at FoolishMuse's book. He has some very well thought out information in there.

Re: Tiller or Wheel for Solo?

Don't waste your money converting a tiller to wheel if you find a boat you like with a tiller. You can spend that on much more useful stuff. FWIW, my S&S 34 had an Edson conversion done to it, but...

Re: Rigging knife

I have a Camillus that is similar to this one, but with a serrated section of the blade. I've had it for at least 15 years now and it is bomber. Beautiful knife.

Re: Malo 45' loses rudder, pulls an All is Lost

How many rudder bearings does the Malo have? Or for that matter, what is typical for a skeg hung rudder?

On my boat, there is a shoe at the bottom of the skeg that is bolted through the skeg,...

Re: Boats like S&S 34

Ilenart and JeffH have identified some of my favorites that are similar to the S&S 34. For what it is worth, the displacement numbers that are kicked around online for the S&S 34 have always been a...

Re: So, What about this idea?

I thought that was how most modern boats were already designed, just that they forgot to include the feature about sliding them back in!

Re: anodes for Yanmar saildrive AND Gori prop?

Yes, two anodes. One pencil style up inside the boat on the port side -- for me I've only changed this once in five years, but I hang on a mooring so don't have the same issues as someone in a...

Re: GoPro - What do you think?

Once you familiarize yourself with the controls you don't spend a ton of time futzing about with it. If anything, I've found that I shoot too much video because it is so easy to carry the thing...

Re: GoPro - What do you think?

When I researched this, a lot of the negative reviews about the Hero 3 edition of the GoPro seem to have been resolved by a software update they released. I haven't had any problems.

Has there been any description of what happened leading up to the attack? To me, it is one thing to be confronted by a violent attacker who doesn't say "hand over the money" first but just starts...

Ditto for me. If spending any time at marinas, I would install a galvanic isolator.
