Re: Land sickness ?

For some people, yes. My wife and I did a 3-week charter some time back and when we got home we both noticed that something was wrong with our house--it was rolling around on its foundation!

We...

Re: Florida is at it again

Latest news is that the amendment to include anchoring restrictions did not make it into the House bill. The Senate bill is still out there, but with only about a week left in the current legislative...

Re: Miami to Bimini tomorrow

I wouldn't do it unless I got a REALLY early start! Well before sunrise. Like, no later than 4-5 am.

Re: Serious attack on cruisers in Haiti - Injuries

Urban legend. It does not work. The toxicity may cause your assailant health problems a few years down the road if they don't wash it off quickly, but it is not going to stop them right here and now....

re: Safety considerations for Great Lakes solo sailor

To the OP... The answer really depends on what you mean by "cruising." If you are talking about sailing around the world, that's a whole different matter than sailing up and down the ICW and maybe...

Re: Am I an SOB?

Exactly. Being helpful and concerned, putting in hours and hours helping someone else with no expectation of a payback, looking out for those around you who need help... All these things do, indeed,...

Re: Am I an SOB?

Probably what you did. There were other boats willing to help him along. If I had been leaving him all alone then I might have been more inclined to change my plans.

It would also depend, to some...

Re: Time Expectaions

I don't think you can make it from Ft. Myers to Anclote Key in one day. Especially in a brand-new-to-you boat. Though it depends to some extent on exactly where in Ft. Myers you are talking about....

Re: "Good Old Boat" From NE or FL Preferred?

How do you plan to get the boat to Florida? If you see the journey down the ICW as a grand adventure that will get you out on the water, familiarize you with your new boat, and be a leisurely, fun...

Re: Sailboat hits Power Line in Cocoa, Florida!

Having been a physics major in college, I did a bit of research on this. For a 110kv line the maximum distance an arc could jump in clear, dry air is about 4 feet. Humidity would increase this, but...

Re: Will 5 hp work on my 25 Catlina.

Really depends on how you plan to use it. Moving boat back and forth in calm, flat conditions? No problem! Trying to buck serious wind and current to get through a dangerous inlet? Problem!

Re: Sailboat hits Power Line in Cocoa, Florida!

If you get the detailed charts of the area (NOAA 11478) it shows the clearance as 85' over the channel. Does not specify how low it is elsewhere. A boat that size isn't going to have anywhere near an...

Re: Electronics on Charter Boats

All the charter boats I have been on have been pretty well equipped, including paper charts, a chartplotter, mounted VHF, and at least one handheld VHF (and usually an auto-pilot as well). Part of...

Re: Security issues and Info Savusavu , Fiji .

Too bad. About 20 years ago stopped briefly in Nadi, and then Savusavu. Seemed like a very nice place at the time. Of course, things change, and that was before the military coup. I would hope that,...

As a simple, direct answer to the original question, I would say that if you do not already have something that you would consider a "valid reason" all on your own, then no one else is going to be...

Re: Flying drones

Depends on how they're used. Kept at reasonable altitude and/or only close to your own boat... Cool. Flown all around the anchorage, low enough to photograph and annoy others... Uncool.

Re: Trailer tongue extension

Sounds like a plan to me. In fact, I've done something similar before.

(Although, I have a drill press, so I just bought a cheap piece of scrap 2" tubing and did it myself.)
