Re: WiFi Connectivity On-Board

On board we mainly connect via our mobile phone plans which give us two gig a month free. I'm hard pressed to download more than that so it works well for us.

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

The man has nailed it !!

As an example the Hiscocks went round something like three or four and a half times and from memory didn't even have a depth sounder or vhf until Wanderer IV.

Re: Wrapping a Steering Wheel

I doubt very much that Donna was attempting to stifle debate or block constructive feedback. To be frank I reckon most of us are like me and simply don't notice where we are (in a manner of speaking)...

Re: Wrapping a Steering Wheel

Does anyone ever notice ? I usually just do a "NewPosts - All New Posts"and comment in threads that somehow are of interest to me. I confess I didn't even notice this was in "HerSailNet".

Re: Wrapping a Steering Wheel

Re: What do you expect a watch stander to to.

Presuming fairly benign conditions then I'd not bother with tether or life jacket when in cockpit but insist when going forward. No one goes forward at night unless they are tethered and have a watch...

Re: Wind-vane now? Or wait for next boat?

We've got an Aries windvane and Raymarine pilot. Reality is that we only use the Aries when on passage. Other than that we stick with the AP.

If you are not passage making (and I'd consider any...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm going to be begging for some hints here.

I'd hazard a guess that we are in Uraguay and that is a river not a canal, but that is all I have got.

Re: Sailor Moon

One has to admire, albeit grudgingly on my part, someone who has the unmitigated gall to expect others to pay for their boat and/or the repairs. I guess begging on the interweb is the way to go for...

Re: French yachtsman rescued from the Torres Strait

From memory around six feet.

The problem would seem to be that if eight feet is too small just how big is big enough ?
