Re: Urgent shaft seal question

I'm curious--how old is the shaft seal? Did you burp it when you dropped in the water at the beginning of the season? Did you lube it?

Re: Making it comfortable for her

I appreciate the OP's original question and looking through the responses, I've yet to see the improvements that have made a difference for me on our boat. My husband and I are healthy and fit, but...

Re: Inflatable PFD Failures?

It was quite a surprise when several inflatables were very slow to inflate, or didn't inflate at all when we did our pool exercise during the Safety at Sea Seminar. Two were Mustang and one was a...

Re: The run aground poll

I should say, my husband ran aground! I pointed out the shoal to him well in advance but as we got closer it "looked" ok to him despite what the depth sounder (and charts) indicated, lol. I was down...

Re: Turkey Charter--what anchorages do you like?

Thanks for the replies--we're heading south/ southeast. We have included Bodrum in our plans and the restaurant/anchorage issue is one I'm concerned about. Thanks for the heads up on that one.

Turkey Charter--what anchorages do you like?

I'm chartering for two weeks in Turkey with 3 friends. We'll pick up and drop off in Turgetreis and we won't be traveling to Greece, just the Aegean in Turkey. Does anyone have any suggestions for...

Re: Rescued at Sea - Are You Prepared?

I attended the Safety at Sea Seminar held on Bainbridge Island this weekend and I just thought I'd share that the Cruising World magazine containing Steve's article was handed out at the seminar. No...

Re: Greece: Dodecanese vs Ionian islands

I'll be following this thread with interest-we're chartering in Turkey this May for two weeks through Sunsail. I'd like to learn a bit more about the area around Greece for a future trip.

Re: How not to go "camping" while cruising frugally

When we cruised through the San Juans and Gulf Islands on our previous boat, a nicely restored San Juan 24, people would often remark how "cute" our boat was, and how we "were camping..." We had a...

Re: Cold Weather Gear Recomendations

Re: All Survival Geared Up

We took the Lifesling class offered at our local sailing club and it was the most worthwhile day-we got to go out on our own boat and use the Lifesling and tackle in a real world situation. And,...

Re: Cold weather concerns

I'm a little late to this party but wanted to report that we raced the Winter Vashon and returned to Olympia Sunday morning only to find it iced in. We tied up outside the marina, and let a few brave...

Re: Booze, PFDs and Sailing with non-sailor friends

We're in the Puget Sound area and our boat rules reflect the local conditions-we always require PFD's. Accidents happen and falling over might mean trying to stay afloat while hypothermia sets in. We...

Re: Two sailors rescued in Puget Sound

One has to wonder if alcohol was involved-the report states this happened at 3:30 a.m. a mile offshore which places them approximately in the shipping/ferry channel.

They are lucky to be alive,...

Re: Wild race on Saturday during November storm

Re: Wild race on Saturday during November storm

Yes, we heard all the races north of us were cancelled only after we all had started. I've heard about the boat carnage all week--torn mains, jibs, etc. We were lucky. This weekend the forecast is...

Wild race on Saturday during November storm

Our local club had a 26 mile race on Saturday. Out of 15+ boats, only 4 finished. I put my footage together in case anyone is interested-we had a full crew so taking a few shots here and there was...

Re: " All Is Lost" movie

I found the movie, but not Robert Redford, agonizing to watch. He's perfectly cast in this role as an aged and stoic sailor. There were many details that veteran sailors might have gripes with, but...

Re: New Puget Sound Sailor needs jib advice

I'd recommend the 150--you can always furl it in some, if needed.

Have fun!!
