Re: Interesting factoid learned recently

My dink is state registered for motor operation (my sailboat documented) and I have no name on her. We usually just call her "Hairball". I guess TT CATNAP would work.

Re: Your boat suggestions?

Agree with the Catalina 30 - or the 34. A Cal 2-27 would be excellent as well. A C&C 30 might be the perfect boat at your price point. Also keep an eye out for a Sabre 30.

Re: Too big for a sunfish?

Sunfish is a great little boat.

Before you bite on a bare hull price out the rudder, tiller, daggerboard, sail, sail rings, mast, booms, gooseneck. Then price out a second used Sunfish WITH all...

Re: Which one is right?

The average also figures in the difference between current speed at depth vs. at the surface.

Re: Backwards Wheel Helm... duh... what?

Re: Need answer to something I've always Wondered About

But if your check-valved tube leaks or otherwise takes in water how do you clear it?

Re: Need answer to something I've always Wondered About

Even just a few feet below the surface your diaphragm can't expand your lungs against the water pressure. Sucking from a tube and exhaling elsewhere won't work very deep. Back to that three foot...

Same in NY. Documentation is great . . . but have the registration if the park police, state police or local sheriffs approach you.

Re: Any 88' Pearson 31-2 Owners in the house?
