Re: Short tacking to windward is sailings heavy lifting.

great post Tom.

I'm with you, I frequently short tack in and out of my narrow creek to get to bigger water. Definitely not the norm around here but it sure feels good.

Re: Sleeping Accommodations --- is there a thread?

On My Bristol 29.9 the port settee slides out to form a nearly queen size bed. When open it does not obstruct access to the head or galley. It's quite comfy and roomy.

Re: I'm back, kinda

respectfully disagree ... sounds to me like you need to be out on the water in your boat more than any of us. Hang in there. Welcome back. It will get better.

Re: Quieting a dinghy at anchor

This is a good point. For the record, I was experimenting to see if getting some distance would reduce the sound. I wouldn't have left it like that ... Although if it helped I might have been tempted!

Re: Ultimate Sole, alternative

Same here. Ultimate Sole is holding up well, but I'll need something in 1 or 2 years I'd guess.

Re: Head hose: How long does it take to permeate

luckily no leaks, and the bilge and bulk head compartments smell fresh. Its just the cabinet under the sink where all of the hoses pass. As others have said permeation of the cabinet itself or a leak...

Re: Head hose: How long does it take to permeate

agreed. With a new tank I'll be able to address the discharge and the vent issue.

Still I had hoped that new hoses would have bought me a bit longer than a few months.

Re: high wind gybing technique??

I'll add that if I'm singlehanded or with inexperienced crew, I will furl the jib first. This allows me to focus on the main, namely letting the main out and set as soon as I've jibed.
