Re: Moving to Tampa

There are a lot of boats available on the west coast of Florida. So, yeah, if you're planning to move down here it would seem silly to buy a boat before you do so.

As mentioned, there is a lot of...

Re: Want to SAIL OFF and live on a deserted island?

Paved runway, lots of buildings. Doesn't exactly look "deserted" to me.

Re: Vessel traffic program for iPad

I just want to "ditto" this, because it is so important to remember. Certainly, more information is better than less. But do not fool yourself into thinking that any of these websites will show you...

Re: A sad end for a fine boat

Easily? No, I don't think so. Yes, there are lots of neglected boats out there that could be picked up pretty cheaply, if the owner wanted to sell. But getting them into useable condition is a...

Re: A sad end for a fine boat

Truth is that if you walk the docks at the average marina around here, probably 1/4th of the boats need to be crunched up just like that. They are not being used, and they are not being maintained. ...

Re: Installing SSB antennae on boat without a backstay

I'd say you have two choices:

1. A vertical whip antenna mounted somewhere, probably the stern.
2. An "alternate backstay" antenna.

See this thread for more info:...

Re: Installing SSB

Impossible to say. What are "good results"? The closer to the antenna, the better it will work. As it gets farther away, it gets progressively worse.

I would say mount it as close as you...

Re: Boat Ventilation

Brilliant way to kill two birds with one stone.

To the OP, sounds to me like you have enough passive ventilation that you don't need an active intake to balance the active exhaust. Two exhaust...

Re: Will this float?

That was my thought the first second I saw it; looks like a Bolger design.

So, yeah. Not only will it float (assuming it was built properly), but it will probably sail reasonably well.

Re: Inventing and experimenting.

Sure. Why not?


Nope. Not even close.

Lots of folks have tried different sorts of ways to power a boat using the wind. No one has yet come up with anything that matches the basic Marconi...

Re: Does an Hobie Catamaran a good intro to sailing?

My first boat was a Hobie 14. The basic principles of point of sail, sail trim, tacking, gybing, and so on are essentially the same for any boat. I suppose that the handling of the sails is quite...

Re: Headset Communicators?

Same here. There's not a woman alive who can't learn to handle any boat out there. You just have to give her a chance, and then give her some encouragement.

Re: Headset Communicators?

That's the part that I never really "got." Why is it that on probably 80% of the boats you see, the one who is best able to do heavy, physical labor is sitting there with two fingers on the wheel,...

Re: Keeping fresh water from fouling

1/2 teaspoon of regular Clorox per 5 gallons of clear water will make it safe, or keep it safe for several months. So, 12 gallons--call it 2.25 teaspoons. That'll be more than enough.
