Re: Who is divorced because of sailing?

Never could have bought the boat if my wife wasn't fully for it. Way too big of a money and time commitment for it to be a solo venture for only one of us. We also don't buy cars, houses, or take...

Re: docking with no motor and 20 knots

I thought the reason for an outboard was for when the wind died, so you don't get stranded.


Anyway, I still maintain that the best solution for the OP would be to transfer someone to his boat to...

Re: docking with no motor and 20 knots

Well, a novice should not be trying to dock any boat, engine or not, in tight quarters, in 20 knots of wind, period.

In 20 knots of wind, in tight quarters, on a small sailboat, an outboard...

Re: docking with no motor and 20 knots

Not sure how a power boat towing a sailboat is going to have any easier of a time getting the boat into its slip in the conditions/circumstance as described. Sounds like there was no room for a hip...

Re: docking with no motor and 20 knots

Seriously?

People actually do sail without motors.

I worked for 7 years at a 100+ slip municipal marina in a busy harbor and we rented on an hourly basis 3 Rhodes 19s with fixed keels. No...

Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

Can you really not see that for some people, listening to a guy play Pete Seeger songs on his guitar is just as painful for them, as the "rap type 'music'" is for you? Sounds pretty arrogant to...

Re: Describe your tyical daysail if you would.

Yup, absolutely. I did not mean to imply that there is a right or wrong way to take guests sailing. It is interesting how different people view the purpose of their boats. Ours is definitely not...

Re: Describe your tyical daysail if you would.

This thread has taught me that maybe I just don't like people that much. Sailing alone, with my wife and son, or with the type of friend who I can call spur of the moment and say "good wind, bring...

Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

You make a good case for anchoring.

Re: This is getting ridiculous

It's fairly clear from the blog that they are an inexperienced couple. On the one hand, good for them for getting out there. On the other, maybe they could have better prepared themselves for...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Well, I'm not so sure that's a foregone conclusion.

These folks pointed the finger all over the place (except at themselves) giving inconsistent and illogical reasons for abandoning RH. The sick...

Re: The first man takes the sails ?

Written by Robert Hunter who claimed to have written songs while on LSD.

I am sure there is some overall theme or story to the song, as there are to most Dead songs. You'd have to look at this...

Re: Help me please, advice also helpful

Sorry to say but this "social experiment" has been around for quite some time in the form of panhandling.

I can admire the goal, but not the means.

In fact, I'm more inclined to give a buck...

Re: who gets the ticket

Really, anyone who works with and refers to the regs on a regular basis calls them just that, the regs. You'd get a funny look from someone in the legal profession if you tried to tell them that the...

Re: Catalina 22 Headsail Selection

Put the headsail on a furler. I lose some ability to point with my 150 genoa partially furled, but otherwise find it to be an adequate way to reduce the amount of sail especially if just out for a...

Re: How many things can go wrong in 4 hours

Oh, ok. So when you said



that's a wink-wink nod-nod kinda thing.

Re: Best outboard motor for a small inflatable?

Ditto. I prefer to row, but couldn't resist a 1.5 hp Evinrude (later became the 2hp) on CL for $180. At 18 lbs, I can easily carry it one handed and there's no external gas tank. I spent a bit of...

Re: Getting Used To New Boat

When we bought our boat we negotiated a walk through with the prior owner who had owned the boat for the last 30 years. The broker mentioned it as a possibility so we included it as a term in our...

Re: Max wind

Well, I'm definitely no design expert, but dinghys, small day sailors and catamarans do not have ballast. This boat does. I highly doubt you have to worry about capsize especially in the 15 (or 20)...

Re: What is proper dingy etiquette?

I don't take or borrow people's stuff. So no worries. Just lending an observation. And I was more referring to a ladder in the yard, than a dinghy, car or house. But also referring to our culture...

Re: What is proper dingy etiquette?

It's interesting how some people have this overblown sense of "mine" when it comes to relatively inconsequential stuff.

I get it. And I respect it. But it's sort of amusing to see how anal some...

Re: First Accident What Did I Do Wrong?

I hate this elitist B.S.

I won't add to the advice given because you already have enough to think about.

P.S. -- My dad pushed me off the dock at age 10 in a Tanzer 16 and told me to have fun. ...

Launched on May 12 this year, before the weather had really warmed up, did one treatment with a spray insecticide on launch day in all the usual hiding spots, keep the boat on a mooring or anchor,...

Re: Is it a crazy thought?

That must have been under the causeway between the main land and South Hero. There's a drawbridge further north for your new ride. Burton Island has first come first serve moorings and is a great...
