Re: Campbell Sailor Prop vs. Max-Prop?

One more happy Max Prop user, great reverse. I've had 3 bladed Max Props on 2 of the 5 boats I've had without an issue.

Re: I found an anchorage that is an Eden.

Thanks Tom, that's a calm night only spot!

Assume you walked up from Ducks, been there but not to Eden, YET!

Re: I found an anchorage that is an Eden.

Yea, that night I would have taken the chance too. Perrrfectttt!

OK, let's see we are facing the open water to the west. I think maybe I can see some land off in the far distance. I know you...

Re: approaching land/harbor but too tired -- heaving-to as technique

It's definitely a good idea to stand off.

Two situations come to mind.

Once approaching Yarmouth, Nova Scotia at night in thick fog. The urge to complete the trip exceeded sensibility, we...

Re: Are we in over our heads?

I tend to agree, if you asked me before you bought a boat and committed to leaving, I'd say leg in with some low cost experiments and make sure you really are going to be happy.

Re: Fellow Four Eyes dealing with rain

I've got a mask with corrective lenses for diving. Haven't yet had the opportunity to use it on deck, and hope not to. I don't think it would solve the drizzly foggy day problem, I think you guys...

Re: Question: Do you close your seacocks when leaving the boat?

Here's one case study on a siphoning from a bilge pump.

A couple of boats back I'll admit to making a fairly significant design error installing an automatic bilge pump. I ran the hose close to...

Re: Fellow Four Eyes dealing with rain

The worst is fog and mist. Glasses get so bad that my marginally bad eyesight without the glasses off is better than completely fogged glasses. Looking through the dodger helps, but it gets hard...

Re: Morris Yachts

One of my favorites. Beautiful to look at, no worries about construction, in fact one of the guys at Morris took one south a few years ago with a small family.

Re: Cape Cod on the outside

Slayer,

Pick a good day and do it. Sound currents are substantial by Monomoy, so time them. Yea, the other way is safer, but you should be able to get a perfect weather window and go.

Re: Destep or not Destep?

No question, step it. Take it you are in Toronto. Even down here in the relative warmth we get snow and ice. As others have said, that can cause havoc with the boat, and you've got a good cover...

Re: Are we in over our heads?

Have fun. Hey, you're not launching offshore in an unknown boat with no experience, we're talking ICW. Sounds like you've done lots of work on the boat, so you know the systems. The trip you...

Re: Advice From Young Punks

Smack, DUDE, I'm a lot older than you and have a GoPro.

I get RADICAL OMG shots of sailing. Clamp it on the stern rail on a windy day. Watch it later and feel like you're there. Chest...

Re: Windlass side loads

Yea, guess I'm not always anchored out with a squal line headed at me, or in the roaring 40's. Some nights, I even anchor out in places that aren't fully sheltered. The horror of it all:D

Re: Windlass side loads

Yes, yes, of course...I know this and have done it. My question is am I risking life limb and boat doing it the other way in reasonable conditions?

Re: Furuno 1715 Radar Anyone?

Do the cheapo radar and enjoy new sails. Hands down.

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

Day sailing, smallest is best. Most fun, feel the wind, and react. I enjoy sailing club 420's for example...what a blast. 27 is a great size combing some sea worthy ness...
