Re: How did you get the money for your first sailboat?

Everyone can find the funds for what they really enjoy. For some people it's a Harley, a bass boat, home entertainment, muscle car, photography... I'm sure there are people out there with more money...

Re: Man calls 14-foot boat on Boston Harbor his home

Apparently they gave him a life jacket, which is cool. But I'm sure they're watching him to make sure he doesn't trespass somewhere or violate a fire ordinance, or littering, or urinating/defecating...

Re: Halfway up mast, jury rig that worked--once..

Make sure it's at least double prusik knot (wrap twice; one wrap is a "girth hitch" in climbing terms. Some wrap three times for more friction) and place only two prusik lines on the line/halyard you...

Re: $158 ebay sailboat heads to sea

@msmith: yeah, the anchored in 120' of water made me do a quick, "so he has a 600' rode aboard? no way."

Re: Lake Norman

I've got a 27' on Lake Norman. It's a large lake with lots of surface area but has lots of inlets and shoreline so you never really feel like you're on a huge lake. There's plenty of...

Re: Docking with an outboard

this post is slowing down... but I'll just mention that I typically keep the motor straight and use the rudder.

Re: 1st Aid at Sea & Important Like Items to Carry
