Re: Copper sheeting & CopperCoat anti-fouling

Thanks for the baited comment, I'm not hoping anything. It was free, and I understand any bottom paint requires maintenance and scrubbing. The only difference is I won't have to picky 47' boat up...

Re: Copper sheeting & CopperCoat anti-fouling

Thanks, it definitely looks pretty with those colors. The bottom will eventually turn a light green patina like a old penny.

It's about UT two to three coats, and on the waterline, bow, keel,...

I finished my copper epoxy antifouling last Wed. It's not CopperCoat, it's a copper powder mixed with MAS epoxy and applied in batches. I still need to paint under the stands and keel, the burnish it...

Re: Give AIS a rest

The reason I said that was because you weren't sure it's intentions and didn't have contact with bridge. Had you done that you might not have had a close encounter with the vessel. It may seem...

Re: Give AIS a rest

Our standing and night orders call for a 1nm cpa from rigs and platforms here in the Gulf, but sometimes their proximity is hard to get away from the closer you get to the coast. We treat other...

Re: Give AIS a rest

Oh yea, after the coast Guard is finished with their reports, then the class societies(Lloyds, ABS) if it's a classed vessel, then the lawyers.. It's quite a lengthy report.

I went to Texas A&M...

Re: Give AIS a rest

In regards to language, every licensed officer of navigational watch is required to speak the language of the sea, which is English. Now I know it's not always the best but they do know English, more...

You shouldn't make generalized and unsupported comments like "too lazy or unwilling to abide by the safety rules". Would be like me saying sailors are "too arrogant and unwilling to follow prudence...

Re: Give AIS a rest

This.

I concur. It's ridiculous to not just alter course way in advance for these commercial vessels. There shouldn't be a "well I have rights, they need to bow to me" when it's unnecessary and...

Re: Give AIS a rest

Well said, Auspicious.

Regarding that tug captain, he probably was lonely. Usually on those offshore tugs they only have 3 people on watch and the 6 total on board. He was probably up in the...

Re: Give AIS a rest

While I agree that it isn't the deciding criteria, it is in our discussion here. If we're talking about in Port interfaces here maneuverability is definitely a criteria. At sea.. (see below)

Re: Give AIS a rest

I agree, though it's predictable that a smaller much more maneuverable vessel should heed passage for a larger less maneuverable one.

Re: Give AIS a rest

If your sailboat is uncontrollable cut the lines. And I seriously doubt it takes longer than a large ship to respond to rudder command.

Re: Give AIS a rest

Have you been on a ship bridge to make these claims? You're right, it is easy for the ship to change heading, but it takes quite a long time for the ship to actually respond to that command. Ship...

Re: Quieting a dinghy at anchor

You should paint the inside of the dinghy, or at least it's bow area with something to dampen the sound.. Try bed liner for trucks. Or you could glue or screw slats of teak to the outside bow to...

Impressive. Does it disassemble? Looked like you just pop the fluke in and slide it down similar to putting together a bed frame?

Re: Zen and the art of 'bottom feeding'... please contribute!

I have a Pathfinder marinized vw diesel that came out of my boat. Turns over but the PO had the injector lines off. So if you had a manual you could probably get it running. It's a 5 cyl inline,...

Re: another a sail question

We use a line similar to this on the boat I race on. We call it the "frackulator". Use it for sailing downwind. We attach it to the jib halyard, then crank down on the halyard. This, after easing the...
