Re: Funding retirement boat

I don't like any of those options if you're talking about traditional "retirement" -- i.e. 60+ end of career move.

Turning any of your retirement investments into a boat seems like a bad move. ...

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

Well, I think it's impossible for sailing to be sexist. "Sailing" is not a person capable of bias or prejudice.

But of course there are people who sail who are sexist. One definition of sexism...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Well, I'm not so sure that's a foregone conclusion.

These folks pointed the finger all over the place (except at themselves) giving inconsistent and illogical reasons for abandoning RH. The sick...

Re: Is it a crazy thought?

Can't give advice for your trip--sounds fun and I'm sure you'll be just fine--but a big Congrats on the purchase and welcome (soon) to your new cruising grounds on Lake Champlain. My boat was in...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

The champagne is part of a larger picture which is revealing as to what really was going on out there. As a Dad to a 4 year old, I cannot fathom thinking to dig to the bottom of the bilge to...

Re: Yacht capsizes on launch

Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a mirac... It's in the hole! It's in the hole! It's in the hole!

Re: Just bought our first sailboat

Congrats on the purchase. Two summers ago my wife and I became the proud new owners of a Seafarer 26. I know from other owners that the S22 is well liked. We've been very happy with the build...

Re: What stops Americans cruising the world?

Personally, I have no interest in ever cruising Europe on a sailboat. We have all the interesting sailing and cruising I could ever want right here on the east coast of the US. I've been to many...

Re: How not to make a tricky harbor approach...

I can't answer for Europe. In Oregon, with its nasty bars, it's well published and communicated by the CG when they close the bars. VHF, weather reports, internet, general media. So, when it's...

Re: How do you rate your marina/mooring ?

We are on a mooring. $900 for May 15 to October 15. Maybe 15 other boats on moorings, a mix of sail and power, and a few powerboats on the old wooden dock. Free and plentiful dinghy parking. ...

Re: How big a holding tank vs. camping

Widely available online, couple of links below. If you think about it, the gross factor of sealing a bag of your own waste is way less (or should be) than dealing with hoses and tanks filled with a...

Re: Cold water survival

Boy, I sure wouldn't dismiss the feasibility of paddling in a drysuit with such ease. Actually, it seems fairly common to see people kayaking in drysuits when water temps are below 50 degrees or so....

Re: Considerations in Choosing a Marina

Location and location. That is, close to home and close to interesting uncrowded waters for weekend cruising. By far the most important factors to us.

Other than that, the bathrooms on shore,...

Re: Thinking of Losing My Inboard

You haven't said anything about the condition of the Yanmar. If it's got life left in it, no way would I remove it. If it needs some work, use the money that would have been spent to remove it and...
