Doctor's are afraid of liability. If she lifts weights, hurts herself and then says, "but my doctor said I would be fine....." I think they always try to err on the side of whatever is most likely...

Re: Hauled Out & Marina Closes, What Happens?

This actually happened to a marina/boat yard in our neighborhood several years ago. We had a boat in there but fortunately were given a heads up as to what was about to go down by a marine surveyor...

Re: Tips for Living Aboard Catalina 27'

Based on the tone and content of your last couple of posts, I can't for the life of me imagine why anyone would want to waste time trying to come up with helpful or creative solutions for you in the...

Re: A Sobering Realization

My husband will be 66 and I will be 62 when our first opportunity comes to cut the dock lines and go (July 2016). The reason I say "our first opportunity" is because that is the date we will both be...

Re: November's issue of Cruising World

I'm in agreement with the OP entirely and had started a thread about this subject on cruisers forum. We had been subscribers of CW since the early 80's but finally gave up our subscription last year....

Re: First Boat/pocket cruiser

Yorktownsailor, I'll second that opinion of the Catalina 22. We sailed on one in So Cal for several years, albeit ours was the keel model. But we loved that boat and always felt secure in it. It...

Re: cape dory 30

My husband and I usually prefer tillers on boats, however, we are currently looking at a CD30 with a wheel and if we buy it we plan to leave it that way.

Re: The iPad thread! who uses an iPad for sailing?

who knew.......

I never ceased to be amazed at what you can do with these little gadgets. I use my iphone for geocaching, but hadn't even thought of using it as a nav tool for sailing.

Re: The Joys and Pitfalls of Buying a New Boat - Part 1

Re: First Boat/pocket cruiser

+1 what Maitapaul said.

Even a Catalina 22 is going to be a pain to launch and retrieve everytime unless you have a powerful tow vehicle. And, although a Flicka is trailerable (meaning it can be...

Re: Latts & Atts is GONE!

What's the magazine of today for cruisers who are just plain folk on real budgets (not boat bums, but not wealthy either) who want a down to earth magazine, with real information and articles, geared...
