When I joined Sailnet as a 21 year old on a dial up modem who wanted to sail the world it was initially to ask a question or two about how to get my little boat sailing properly.

Re: Describe your tyical daysail if you would.

Thats a great idea. We have done similar in the past for crew coming onboard for longer passages but it is also a great idea for daysails.

Re: Describe your tyical daysail if you would.

For a daysail with guests we are a bit like Donna in that we like to be prepared and put the focus on a good time without too much stress.
Ideally a short upwind sail in the morning, lunch at...

Re: Shameless plug

She looks like a great boat.

Not ugly at all IMHO but I am biased when it comes to centre cockpits!

Looks like it has a very similar layout to us and we find our boat incredibly useable.

You will not get a better response and a more thoughtful, balanced set of advice, from a better source than this.

Re: Help me find my boat please.

Plenty of boats in that category. Where are you based?

I would suggest starting off by reading through John Neal's blue water boat list, his boat advice and suggestions.

Re: How big is too big for one man?

I think Arvicola Amphibus is on the money.
You could go smaller, 24- 26 if you really wanted to in the right boat.

For me 35ft would be my magic figure depending on what kind of boat we are...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Maybe he should also sue Bob Perry?? I mean if the boat broached then clearly it is also faulty ?
As for the leaks....well if it was made of steel then things would have been different :)

Re: Sailing with kids!

If that is the case then I would take an approach that connects with what he likes about powerboats....is it speed? comfort? spending time fishing? the 'ease' of getting somewhere fast?

Nothing wrong with the app. My iphone is just crap. So if I rely on it to navigate my vessel clearly Apple would be to blame wouldn't they? :p:p
