Re: Removing Diesel smell

On a previous boat, a small leak in the fuel tank went unnoticed during the survey, and within a few months became a large leak, emptying the whole tank into the bilge. We were away from the boat, so...

Re: Hampton VA to Herrington Harbour South in June

If you decide to stop south of the Potomac, there are a number of nice anchorages in and off the Great Wicomico. But be warned, there are an outrageous number of unlit fish traps in that area,...

Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

So, you question my sources. Fine. Do you have any sources that contradict them? Do you have any sources at all? What evidence do you have that these funds have been raided? After all, the intended...

Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

The flush tax does not go into the general fund. From the bill:



Here is the status of the facility upgrades being funded by said fund:

Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

Gary,

I have already been admonished about contributing to the thread drift towards taxes, so I will leave this, although I would enjoy discussing further in a more appropriate venue. Things are...

Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

I'm curious Gary. What is it that you object to about the "rain tax"? Impervious surfaces increase the amount of pollutants that enter the bay. Taxing impervious surfaces (which is what the tax was...

Re: Diamond in the rough?

I wasn't suggesting this is the boat that set off on a circumnavigation in 1972. Besides the obvious size difference, this plan appears to have been drawn 11 years later. And this one is labeled...

I got curious about the 'Solange IV, J Robiller' name on the designs. I found this article:

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

In the recently revived ancient Morgan OI thread, I encountered this tidbit posted by Jeff nearly 14 years ago. Seems quite relevant (and seems the internet has made little progress in this time).

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

I don't have an Ericson, but I would have to be very cautious using my microwave on a port tack.

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

As for using the PP as a liferaft, I only have this anecdotal evidence, but it doesn't look good.

I am not sure exactly what events led up to this situation. Did they die from exhaustion/exposure...

Re: To stop pitching, no not horseshoes.

Please do not try to discredit this hypothesis. I would very much enjoy being at anchor watching people tote a thousand pounds of rocks in their dinghies in the sort of conditions...

Re: Head dumps directly into sea?

Much of this conversation seems to have revolved around the fact that an individual boat's effluent is of little consequence. Some of it seems to at least allude to the fact that a million gallons of...

This thread has convinced me all boats are terrible. I don't have a BeneJeneHunterBavarLinas. Nor do I have an old classic bluewater boat. This thread has spent 140 pages pointing out the downsides...

Re: Head dumps directly into sea?

My experience, anecdotal as it may be, does not match yours.

As an early (attempted) adopter of LEDs, I found them to be very expensive, dim, and of poor light quality. (Newer bulbs are vastly...

Re: Head dumps directly into sea?

I don't mean to further distract the discussion from squirrels, but CFLs actually reduce the amount of mercury released into the environment. The largest source of mercury is from power generation,...

Re: Sacrificing virgins to pagan gods (sailing related)

I thought the whole renaming ceremony had to be performed while sailing backwards across the equator. Sounds like a good shakedown cruise. Do you need crew?

Re: Tayana 37 vs Corbin 39

I believe hotdogs point was this:

For a 24 second difference per mile to equal a 15% increase in speed, assume the following equation (SPM = seconds per mile):

SPM + 24 = 1.15*SPM

Or, more...
