As an alternative to a breathing MOB simulator, I fashioned a 5 gal bucket to a non inflatable vest, and chucked it over. With a 3 kt current trying its hardest to flush the boat downriver and...

Am I alone in liking this feature?

I just missed picking up a sweet little Pearson 27 II in my area - the one with the head located aft opposite the quarter berth leaving the forward berth free of "heady" odors and a "tamer" ride when...

It will also have a tendancy to deflate the chute when the wind is so light as to be overcome by the pole's weight. Heavy enough wind, and well, it'd be doable. I'd want two foredeck guys to...

I hadn't thought of this and I'll have to try it to see what more it would take to drag (if possible) beyond the 3kt current already present at my playground. Good suggestion.

We're not allowed to sail in/out of our marina, however its not really enforced, and on race nights, the line of SVs coming/going makes for interesting navigation.

I really dig this idea. I practice often, but haven't added the scenario - what if I went over. Great idea. I'm going to put my guests on the spot next time out with an inflated 15 gal. trashbag!

Getting too conservative in my old age?

I'm with everyone here.
Drop the hook away from a channel or shipping lane, and rest if its necessary.




This by virtue of the Starboard tack right of way rule is for the most part true when...

Hey, you can't knock the M26.
When you lose your rigging in a 5kt "blow" you always have that trusty 60hp to get you home dragging the rigging and all.

I saw it with my own eyes. Granted I left...

What factors went into the decision to buy your current (or future) boat?

For me, price, stability, low budget weekender for a guy and his 9 year old kid. Oh, and price. An active fleet and reasonable "slip" fees on top of the floating money hole.
