Re: How did you get your spouse to embrace the cruising life?

Interesting thread! My husband probably had similar questions 5 years ago when he wanted me to start sailing with him on a small sailboat we had purchased. I'd go out with him once a week, but the...

Re: Marina unplugged my dock cord and damaged my boat

--my first thought as i read the description of personality changes.

Re: Team Vestas Wind grounded in the VOR

Agreed. But, these comments are nothing compared with other forums I've read where people are generally viciously unkind. It's disheartening and prevents many of us from learning actual lessons. I...

Re: Team Vestas Wind grounded in the VOR

I never want to be in that position. Ever. That video was scary and absolutely painful to watch. And, rather than the usual blame game, I'd love to learn more of what led them to overlook their...

Re: Black Water Thru-Hull Location

I'm a little late in suggesting this but I have the same boat, circa 1991, and Ward from Beneteau in S.C. is a great resource for specific design questions or locations of thru-hulls, etc. I believe...

Re: Oldest Around, Solo, Non-Stop

We were in Florida just a week before he departed and went out of our way to travel to St. Augustine to get a glimpse of the boat, which, as it turns out, was not at a public dock. We had to do some...

Re: What boat for a 10-15 year trip?

Re: Dropped my water fill cap.

Where are you in the PNW? Isn't there anyone in your club there that can quickly don a wetsuit and retrieve it at 20 ft, or during the lowest tide?

You're not the only dufus-we recently dropped a...

Re: Anyone wear a PLB?

Great products listed! Looking at the McMurdo or ACR Aqualink. The AIS alternative that Jackdale recommended makes sense if you have a crew that can pick you up with the boat you came off of, but I'm...

Thanks for the replies- those nautilus devices look like what I have in mind. I'd like to see some reviews.

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?
