Re: Online Captains License or class room?

Re: Online Captains License or class room?

FWIW, I got my license without taking a class. To me the big value of a class is the instructor knows the requirements to get through the process, which are almost more confusing and complex than the...

If the switch 'shows' green (ie covering orange) it's acting as a boom support. If the switch is pushed to show orange (covering green) its been 'released' and is...

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

the pro-mooring advocates cannot justify the mooring fields unless they first blur the topic with talk of the big bad derelict vessel and msd smoke screen.
the choice to use anchor or mooring should...

Maybe Multihull Girl will change her mind after she actually cruises the ICW and sees more and more anchorages disappear every year.

Probably so. As I said earlier, the people who set these kinds of federally paid for projects up, do it for a living, and usually cover all of those bases. These type things are submitted to the...

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

Re: BVI charter cost is cheep!!! for the Jenanneau 36I
