Re: SR Marine Wind Instrument Problems

I believe SR still repairs their instruments. Google for the contact info. (I looked onto having them fix my knotmeter a few years ago).

Re: UAV Recon Possibility

I think that sounds like a fun idea, plus you could record some spectacular sailing footage from overhead.

This video was filmed from a similar UAV, just to give an indication of the...

Re: Cold weather concerns

I fear that my heater just makes things worse because it can cause the hull to sweat in certain areas. I will get my dehum up and running this week.

Alex, Thanks for the info on the Eva-Dry. I...

Re: Cold weather concerns

What dehumidifiers do you guys prefer? I have an electric marine heater set to about 65 degrees and running, and a light bulb turned on, but don't have a dehumidifier.

I have a home dehumidifier...

Re: Falling asleep at the tiller

Since these were hurricane-damaged boats can we assume they were uninsured? If so, not only is he out the purchase price of both boats but also the cost of recovery. What a shame.

What...

Re: Around the world on a 500-buck San Juan 24? He's got guts for sure..

I agree on the Cal 20. That is a stiff, tough, overballasted little puppy. The SJ24 is fine for coastal or lake sailing, but WOW is that thing inappropriate for crossing an ocean.

I hope this...

Re: Things lost in the water

I have been sailing off and on for about 35 years now, but have never flown a spinnaker of any kind. I have a nice Asym that came with my boat but had never used it, so my 12 yr old son and I set...

Re: Things lost in the water

My mom was taking my 86 yr old grandfather on a jet ski ride, and flipped the watercraft. Grandpa was carrying the pocketknife given to him by his father on his 8th birthday, just as he did every...

Re: 1976 ranger 24

Brian,

Where do you keep your boat? Somebody put one in at Brownsville a few months ago. It looks like a fun boat.

Re: Largest liveaboard *ever* sells for US .01

Asbestos, lead, oils, Cadmium and other heavy metals, etc. The cost of environmental compliance must be quite high.

An interesting cost comparison would be Oriskany. She was sunk as a reef in...

Re: Largest liveaboard *ever* sells for US .01

The scrap value is on the order of $25M. Hopefully the yard who bought her will be able to tow her, cut her up, and deliver her to market for less than that amount.

Re: Largest liveaboard *ever* sells for US .01

"The Feds" had plenty of return on Forrestal. It served the Navy for 35 years! As it is, it would cost more than it is worth for the Navy to scrap it or clean it up for use as a reef. I am sure they...
