Re: Shore power question

Sigh.

It's very tempting to get an adapter and an extension cord with a GFCI in it to run the charger, but part of my plan with this boat is to learn The Right Way To Do Things so I suppose I...

Re: Movie Making: software to fliming

I would say move it to "How To" since documenting your trips is a sailing related thing.

Unless I have some serious time to kill I rarely go to Off Topic, so I probably would not have seen this...

Re: Shore power question

I also have a 22 footer with no shore power.

What was involved in adding a proper shore power outlet? Did you add a whole AC system with a panel and everything? The only thing I'd need to run off...

Re: Our first good video

Yeah, if you have an iMac you should have everything you need to edit movies with iMovie and iTunes.

If you want to get into crazy pro stuff Adobe now licenses Premiere and After Effects for $20...

Re: Melting Glaciers Lead to the Freak Phenomenon Of "Dead Water"

Yes and yes.

ENIAC was the first complete and programmable electronic computer. U Penn built it for the army to calculate ballistics. (If I'm remembering my History of CSci class correctly.)

Re: So this happened here yesterday.

Was the restaurant actively transmitting AIS? Was the restaurant sounding a fog signal every two minutes?

Re: I Paid a Dude. And I Liked It.

I think what he's saying is that he already was paying them to run a guy up to replace the sheaves. He asked them to screw the coax back on while they were up there already and they added on an extra...

Re: What is your favorite sailing Novel?

I believe "narrative non-fiction" is the term we're looking for.

Re: Dock Etiquette While Working

Just turn up your Metallica a little louder to cover the profanities. That'll take care of it.

Re: Do you make guests wear PFDs?

Thank you for this conversation. I'm trying to develop my rules. I've mostly sailed in two situations and this is what I've done:

1) On my small (22') boat on a small warm lake I've only twice...

Re: Diamond in the rough?

That seller has a lot of items for sale, but all the rest are shoes and blouses and dolls and such. Nothing else sailing related.

I wonder if the conversation went something like this "Hey, you...

Re: OOPS! Could have lost the mast today

Yikes! That sounds terrifying. I'm glad it was during calm weather.



Just as a general question, which stays break the most?

The way I'm picturing it in my head the forestay would take the...

Re: Major water ingress - best emergency device?

Yes, +1 to this.

What really struck me about this was just how hard it was to get a big hole in the boat. The scored it with a grinder, then hit with a sledge, as I recall they tried using the...

Re: Plasti Dip as a bottom paint

I tried this and had a 50% success rate.

The waterline of my boat had a very unattractive mixture of the original bootstripe, some sort of barrier coat that slopped up over that in places, and a...

Re: Dinghy theft protection

I just don't understand some thieves. The city keeps two 15' fiberglass rowboats as tenders at my lake so we can row out to our boats. Someone stole one this summer. They're too big to put in the...

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

At anchor one evening my wife baked a whole bunch of mini-cupcakes. A friend and I put on silly hats and we dinghied around giving out fresh cupcakes to the whole bay.

Re: 10 weeks to splash - will it ever get here?

I love winter, every fall I really look forward to it. I enjoy shoveling so much that I rarely use our snowblower and I often shovel the neighbors out as well. The first sub-zero day? A delight! The...

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

This is the first time I've ever been accused of being too serious!

I'm not above wearing a wig and novelty squid hat while sailing. But I still don't fly the Jolly Roger :)

Re: 10 weeks to splash - will it ever get here?

Nice video! I envy your snow. This year Minneapolis is getting the cold, but not the snow. It's one-freaking-degree outside, but there's hardly any snow. I went for a bike ride today and went past...

I don't think so.... My sister-in-law went there and I remember her talking about their one hundredth anniversary.

Re: Soft shackle with jib sheets

Ahhh, thank you!

That led me to these two links:


They really cleared things up for me. I couldn't quite visualize how they worked, but now I get it.
