Ha ha, no. If you think James is going to join a racing program you have missed the point of this thread entirely.

Re: Newbie renting a keelboat - dumb idea?

Its the same thing. Go on a "light air " day and know the tides and currents.

The problem will be docking. Even a small 3000 lb sailboat can be tricky to dock the first few times.

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

There was a pretty nice...

re: Ways to Get Boat From Long Island to Upstate NY

The INITIAL price might be low, but the cost is going up fast.. I see them around here in the $2500 - $5000 range with a motor and trailer, in good shape.

Re: First boat advice - Mpls to Great Lakes

You could probably buy a nice small boat for day sailing - and rent a nice big one for the one or two weeks you would cruise. Cheaper and easier.

Re: Seeking life wisdom, and an opportunity to crew on a passage

Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

This thread is sort of inching towards a point I wanted to make;

Rather than ask " How much does it cost to cruise?" Ask-

What does $3000/ month look like where I want to go? What does this...

Re: Just Do It--You're Not Getting Any Younger

I don't know. I was ..uhh.. less wise when I was 20. I tended to go out in all sorts of rough weather and do other sorts of risky behaviors. Perhaps its just as well that I didn't go too far.

Re: Violent attack, Cruisers injured, St Vincent & Grenadines, Union Island

I'm an american. Sick to death of the guns politics discussion. Leaving the gun discussion off topic is the only thing making it possible for me to follow this thread.

You should be able to put your head under the seats and look around. You may have to move the galley, or the panel between the dinette and the gas locker under the seat. But its simple. You have to...

Re: Carburetor Rebuild

Yeah, the carbs are cheap .. I guess 100 - 125 bucks.

I " rebuild" mine all the time - no kit needed.

Re: Towing a Capri 16 with a Subaru outback?

The standard is really helpful when on the road. Keep her down in 4th on hills and watch the temp, make sure the oil is full, I think it will be fine.
