Re: Heavy Weather Sailing

I agree. All the hashing and rehashing of which method to apply, what sail configuration, drogue, sea anchor, etc. gets to be purely academic until you're there. It's good to be familiar with it all...

Re: Marine head won't pump

I've had the opposite problem with my PHII. The intake will often run dry. If I "seed" it with a bit of fresh water, it then pumps fine for the duration of that particular flush. Then, same problem...

Re: Pros and cons for a double ender/Canoe Stern

Rich - I'd be interested to hear more about that story. PM me if you wish.

Re: Pros and cons for a double ender/Canoe Stern

Hmmm. It's been nearly 10 years ago now, but I'd have to say that it was at most only a few minutes, probably less -- typically before the next wave train became a threat.

Re: Pros and cons for a double ender/Canoe Stern

As a matter of fact, I have in Force 10 conditions in the South China Sea. The quick draining cockpit in my (then) Taipan 28 was pooped about half a dozen times. It was a God send to see that the...

Re: Pros and cons for a double ender/Canoe Stern

Of course there are other factors, namely how large the scuppers are. But, from a volume standpoint, it's simple physics.

Re: Pros and cons for a double ender/Canoe Stern

Smaller cockpits, true. "Pooped more often?" B.S. There's absolutely no evidence to support that claim. The difference in reserve buoyancy is minimal at best. And if they do get pooped, the smaller...

Re: Pros and cons for a double ender/Canoe Stern

I own a canoe-transomed Tayana 37 and I'd have to agree. Aside from aesthetics, no real advantages I can think of other than less tendency to "slap" than the reverse sugar scoops that are popular...

My apologies - I should have realized where the confusion originated. No hard feelings! :)

Re: Sailing, safety, & size

Well, asking a question is not the same as drawing a conclusion. Might I suggest that you seem overly defensive?

Re: Sailing, safety, & size

Paulo - read what I wrote. I assiduously avoided drawing any conclusions. In any case, a solo race boat and a solo cruising boat are two entirely different things. How many people go cruising in an...

Re: Sailing, safety, & size

But interestingly, the Pogo is crewed by at least four people, according to the video. Is it easily manageable by a cruising couple? Unless the answer is yes (and maybe it is), it is not a "safer"...

Re: Used Aries Wind Vane -- Should I go for it?

Everything I see has Aries recommending 6mm marine ply for the paddle.

Re: Favorite Barometers

I've been thinking of getting a new set, matching chronometer and barometer. Aside from the expense, the other thing that's putting me off is that each time I go into a WM and look at them, no two...

Re: Rough cost to convert tiller to wheel

What's wrong with a tiller? It's really the simplest and best system. If it works for your boat, I'd keep it.

Re: Why pay to sail in a rally?

The Delmarva is not difficult - it involves a modicum of coastal cruising and a bit of offshore (which is, actually, the easier part). You need to watch yourself in a few spots - get the current...

Re: Follow the ARC

It's interesting that a cursory glance of the leaderboard is showing all monos out front. The multis are pulling up the middle.

Re: transmission problem?

I have heard talk of this at the local "table of knowledge" but I think the answer probably lies in whether the transmission is properly maintained and lubricated. If it is, it certainly makes sense...

Re: transmission problem?

Weird. The engine I posted about is LOOONG gone (the OP was in 2005). The boat and the engine are no doubt being used by some fisherman in Da Nang, Vietnam.
