Re: Why do people still use depth sounders?

When you are using a chart plotter/GPS instrument, you likely need not to refer to depth all that much. I do still use the depth meter to double check depth that is supposed to be under the keel -...

Re: So where the heck do you shower???

When all is said and done, "showering" is a modern invention. Prior to that stroke of genius, people "washed up". Genetically, mankind has not changed all that much since then, so with a bit of...

Re: Welland Canal down bound advice

You'll be in Belleville before you know it. You can still do some sailing in the Bay of Quinte or even the Thousand Islands before quitting the season (Check out Prinyer Cove on Adolphus Reach).

Re: in mast furling issue

Night Sailor... Yes, it would be worth dedicating a season to Georgian Bay and the North Channel if you have the time. Mid-June to mid-September is the "window" for best weather (including... no...

Re: Welland Canal down bound advice

Jon, I did go up-bound with 1x6 carpet covered plank in front of the fenders, as well as 4x4 lengths. No problems - and used by many in transit. Upbound you do have a third crew-member: 2 to shorten...

Re: Welland Canal down bound advice

Mike, I am a little puzzled why you are overwintering the boat in Belleville. Are you planning to go down the St. Lawrence next year?

Re: Welland Canal down bound advice

Yes, I did mean the check-in dock and also agree with Killarney. Not sure what you mean by "heat down there". Yes we just had a couple of hot days but cooler days and morning lows of 13C next week...

Re: Welland Canal down bound advice

OK, Mike, remember to have something (wood?) to protect your fenders going down, especially if it is just the two of you busy paying out the line that holds you in the lock and you don't have time to...

Re: Cruising Finances

Good posts... I think all bases have been covered.

Frugality has been touched upon a few times and I believe that the cruising lifestyle generally referred to here is not a sumptuous one. Thus,...

Re: in mast furling issue

Again, thanks to all of you who offered suggestions on how to solve my problem. I also consulted my local sailmaker who actually came up with the "winning idea".

Re: in mast furling issue

Thanks, Scotty... I am allowed a small degree of bend in the mast which has not been an issue thus far, but I may just straighten out the mast in hopes it will diminish tension and facilitate turning...

Re: Are sailors an easy target?

It all comes down to (over)crowding. A remote latrine is no problem, but a concentration of human waste in a crowded city has (thankfully) resulted in elaborate sewage systems. Even so, it seems to...

Re: Are sailors an easy target?

OK, and, yes, things are not what they used to be. A major reason: there are simply a lot more boats - power and sail - everywhere. We were in the BVI in April 1988 and nary a boat in sight, and only...

Re: What Y'all think of this scheme?

When on the rivers and canals you must assume that you will never sail, even if you have an easy mast-up assembly: currents, bridges, lack of sea room, traffic, locks, not to speak of very narrow...
