Re: Defender's Annual Warehouse Sale!

I saw that too. Got me thinking that they just raise prices in advance of the sale then put on a "sale" to offer the items at the old regular price. Old school retail tactic. But I also checked on...

Re: Florida is at it again

I also think no one's quoting him because they realize that he's just being a troll and trying to stir up crap and no one's biting.

Re: Florida is at it again

Cruising is not necessarily a "recreation/vacation whim." It's a way of life, just as having waterfront property is a way of life. Your phrasing it as such is provocative and unnecessary.

Re: Downeaster 38 , Fast Passage 39 , Valiant 40

IDK, Based on the three he listed in the original post, he may be looking for a house, or at least a sailing house. A J-24 is a wonderful boat of only sailing is what you're looking for. It lacks a...

Re: Downeaster 38 , Fast Passage 39 , Valiant 40

I agree with some of what has been said. The three boats listed are fairly different in design. Not at all familiar with the Fast Passage 39, but the Valiant 40 has a very good reputation. The...

Re: USCG multi term Documentation

My comments:

1. Would you prefer a multiyear renewal program with fees charged at the time of renewal, or would you prefer to continue annual renewals including an annual fee for service? Please...

Re: *** Marine Battery Use Survey ***

I have never understood why people will make an assumptions about what others have or have not seen, or how it would affect their opinions? The mere existence of boat fires has nothing to do with my...

Re: *** Marine Battery Use Survey ***

Are you sure it's an ABYC requirement? I've never heard that. For a lot of boats, a 300A fuse (max on those MRBF fuses) isn't going to be enough. That's why they make the class T's. Besides, it looks...

Re: *** Marine Battery Use Survey ***

Done. Shared this thread on FB so hopefully some of my friends will also chime in.

What's up with the 'is the fuse 7" from the positive terminal' questions? That would be very difficult to do in...

Re: Exp. Crew or Capt. Wanted for W. Palm to Rhode Isl

Same questions as zz4gta. In particular, how many crew total are you planning on having, and what is the condition/age of the boat.

I've done this delivery four times, both inside and outside....

Re: Spacing & how many mast steps?

I spaced mine at 14" so my wife could climb easily. (I don't want to go up there.)

I also put two side by side at the top.

Re: The Voyages of Paragon, Season 2

Back to Iceland and Greenland?? Did you leave your keys there or something? Isn't that going the wrong way, wind wise, that far north (or does it just not matter)?

Re: Perfect gift for the navigator in your life

I wouldn't be surprised if it simply pre-dates the current 360 degree system. The concept of always placing north at the top of a map is relatively recent (~300 years or so, I think) for instance.

Re: Roller Furling Answers and Opinions Desired

This is my thought exactly. I installed a Schaefer system in Argyle last spring. If you don't mind the weight (and I certainly won't notice it :p ) this is a very robust furler. Very happy so far.

Re: sailing as exercise?

This is my experience exactly. I always come back from a delivery a little lighter than I left, especially if it's mostly outside (US East Coast). Ocean sailing is a terrific low intensity workout,...

Re: Boat slip/mooring CT River

Norwalk will be rather expensive, especially since the closure of Yacht Haven West. I would certainly expect over $100/ft. for a slip. In general, you can get better prices as you move east, so the...

Re: Musto Offshore MPX

Cool! Congratulations. That's a great prize!

They are sized a bit large in order to fit many layers underneath. I'm 5'11" ~220 and my set is an XL and would fit me nice if I weighed 250 or even a...
