Re: Mounting containers to lifelines

Like many cruisers I carry tanks on my deck. And I frequently sail well offshore. A couple of notes:

Re: Winterizing a boat

I make a wooden frame with a lot of pitch (steep sides) and throw a couple of tarps over it. Use good quality tarps and tie them snug; flapping in the breeze can damage the boat's finish.

Re: Docking in a crosswind

Actually I love those kind of days.

I fly a B757 across the Atlantic weekly and for the most part automation has taken the fun out of what we do. But every now and then you get a serious...

Re: Minimum Draft

Good question, doesn't sound like Maine does it:D

Around here the mud goes on forever in some bays. People wading in have been know to get sucked in and never been heard from again.

Re: Marina unplugged my dock cord and damaged my boat

With only 20 slips, I assume you are easily replaced? Have to consider whether you are willing to leave over this.

That said, he was clearly wrong, as I understand your side of the story. No...

Re: Cockpit and Deck Painting Advice

I can endorse either one or two part Petit paints for doing the whole topside area. While one part (EZPoxy) is maybe 40% cheaper, I can't really say that the two part (EZPoxy2) is really any harder...

Re: Quick meals or snacks?

I will admit, hard to do as a chef, but we always have some canned soup on board. I prefer Progresso of different varieties, try to find the low sodium ones. A hot clam chowder is pretty tastu on...

Re: Single-handed tips and tricks

Yup, but ya know, after reading it online in PDF form, I found it was much more palatable to read as a book in my hands. I also keep it on my boat.

Re: Single-handed tips and tricks

Actually I think it is one of the most useful tips so far.

Speaking of one hand, I recommend a pee bottle and a strict rule never to pee over the side while single handing. It's too much of a...

Re: Sailing Alone Better?

"Never again". ROFL, I can agree at times with that. One day we had a rock star courtesy of the local big-name loft on a 45' boat, racing up close to the shore in unfamiliar waters and he's shouting...

Re: Not impressed with Samson Ultra-Tech line

I'm aware of the differences in these two lines. Genoa sheets are short and lightly loaded compared to their size (since they are sized for comfort).

If your foresail is around 600sqft then in...

Re: Winch Free Spins

The digital camera is your friend. Take pictures of EVERY STEP as you dismantle them.

Tape down the edges of the box around the winch. Those springs will try to escape and go for a swim.
