Re: Boat sank at the dock

So here's a toss-up, is the OP obligated to inform a subsequent buyer that the vessel sank? I think a predictable conflict with an insurance settlement is the inability to collect for loss in value.

Re: J22 sailing

Get a comfortable life jacket and use it, or stay home. Especially if the remainder of the crew may not be expert at a quick retrieval of a swimming you.

Re: Boat sank at the dock

Actually the fact I've done that in the past is the reason I say its likely to be pointless. Hey, maybe Boston is a backwater, the OP's boat is in XXXXXX {redacted per OP}, you give Google a shot...

Re: Team Vestas Wind grounded in the VOR

Re: Boat sank at the dock

That's not so easy. I've had the experience of working with an attorney regarding a yard's damage to my vessel. I found that attorneys specializing in this subject area are at least rare, if they...

Re: Topping lift vs. boom kicker

Generally any mainsail should be cut so the boom is horizontal when the sail is full hoist, with no assistance needed from a topping lift. If it is not, then the sail's the problem.

Advising that...

Re: Boat sank at the dock

Maybe the OP would best wait for the cards to be on the table and see what his hand looks like, before he spends several hundreds of dollars or more out of pocket for advice he may not need.

Re: Boat sank at the dock

In forty years of boating, I've never worked with a broker, or stayed at a marina, where they exercised any responsibility for my boat. Although I am sure one can contract either to assume such...

Re: Topping lift vs. boom kicker

I would install/retain the topping lift, even with the best hard vang available. Alternatively, bring the halyard aft to serve as the topping lift after the main is dropped.

A unique value of the...

Re: Boat sank at the dock

Yikes, a terrible situation. FWIW, William Buckley relates a situation in his book "Airborne" where his yacht sank at a dock, and after recovery no cause could be found... on a cruise sometime later...

Re: Red over Green Navigation Light

I guess I missed this post first time around. You really should think twice about this, unless your no sails fly from your masthead. How would a masthead spinnaker affect the forward visibility of...

Re: Red over Green Navigation Light

FWIW, the OP DID say two of each, but even with two green three feet down from the top of the mast, a sail would still likely periodically obscure any visibility of the masthead green.

Re: Red over Green Navigation Light

I would say absolutely not, as the light is required to be an all-around light and one installed below the masthead would be subject to being blocked in various sections by your sails. This blockage...

Re: J24 Good first boat???

I can't see how you can recommend a J-24 for anything other than one-design racing. The cockpit and deck are not laid out for any form of siting comfort. I sailed a J-24 some 30+ tears ago, and I...

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

Re: Judging Boat Speed during figure 8 MOB

That's a no-no. If in irons, the luffing sheets and boom make movement about the boat while focusing on the person in the water very hazardous. You risk potentially more serious injury to persons IN...
