Re: Own your own 'Dockominiums' in Fort Lauderdale

No one is saying you have to buy one. Just let those who wish to alone.

Re: Own your own 'Dockominiums' in Fort Lauderdale

This, of course, is good for everyone. Have you ever seen a dirty megayacht? Someone has to clean them, care for them, fix them, etc. etc. etc.

Re: Is NSA a bad thing?

In Chicago, the USCG tries to stop every boat at least once per year. It is absolutely outrageous that they have this power in our society, but it is certainly no reason to give up sailing.

Re: Martec 2 Blade Prop vs. 3 blade

2 blade is better cruising efficiency. 3 blade is better power for acceleration/deceleration.

If I were going to replace my prop, it would be hands down for a 2 blade flexofold.

Re: Vestas Wind Grounding Report Issued

One thing I like about Navionics is that one can either display the navionics chart or the government chart.

The problem was not that they relied upon a single source of data, but that they were...

Re: Sugar scoop transom safety in big seas

I think I need to make a little correction about the Rainmaker Salon being "a big hardtop dodger with glass in the front and isenglass aft."

What I really mean to say is that it is a REALLY GOOD...

Re: Sugar scoop transom safety in big seas

When I refer to "isenglass" I refer to that flexible plastic stuff sewn into canvas that rolls up. The aft of rainmaker is just this isenglass material.

I hear you on the NEEL 45. It seems like an awesome cruising boat. The 65 is 2+ million and really really big. If I were a buyer, I.would be a.little hesitant about the 45 just because of the...

I would go with the Knysna 500.

Re: What would you buy?

200k - 250k:

Tayana 55. Could be had for less, but that amount would be needed to possibly upgrade.

Re: Sugar scoop transom safety in big seas

The one question I have about the Gunboat is the engineering of the rig. Was the material itself defective? Is there a way to inspect for defects? Was it undersized?

I also wonder about the...

You are saying that the isenglass was blown out by a squall?

Re: Purchase then store, or wait?

Use the time to search for your perfect boat. I can think of no advantage to buying and storing. When you are ready to move, you will find a boat that someone already re-fit.

Re: Sugar scoop transom safety in big seas

You are trying to pass your personal observations as some kind of accurate data collection method? Now that is laughable.

Re: Sugar scoop transom safety in big seas

Another point needs to be made about the JSD. It needs to be properly sized for the boat. If it restricts forward motion too much, the experience can be much less "comfortable." Jordan talks about...

Re: Sugar scoop transom safety in big seas

Probably. Which is the beauty of the JSD. It is constantly balancing all of the forces. It is really one big "shock absorber" and works almost in the exact same way.

Re: Sugar scoop transom safety in big seas

A wave slid the hatch forward? A feat any human could do? What force do you suppose was pushing on that hatch top? 20 lbs? And you think that isn't "gentle?"
