Re: iPad users only

When we have the need to be connected, the wife turns on the "hot spot" on her phone. I just had no need to purchase a data plan for the iPad. ;)

Why no activity?

Hi All,

So with all the "regulars" I see over in the "big 2" (sailing and maintenance) from the PNW, why is this thread so dead? There are lot's of questions I could ask a local PNW sailor!

Re: Sailing Schools - certificated coures or 'a la carte'???

While in the Navy (back in the early 80's) they had a complete sailing program (makes sense... Navy, boats, history). They approached it like everything else in the Navy, like a qualification; start...

Re: The Talk

You may have taken out a bunch of tourists and had a boat big enough with helpers etc.. On a small boat it might be critical where you sit. I took out a couple that had never been on a sailboat in...

Re: I Equate it to Driving in a Bad Snow Storm!

No, but that was good. :D I was just trying to lighten things up a bit. :) Say after me... I know how to reef. I love to reef (even if you really don't). ;)

Re: I Equate it to Driving in a Bad Snow Storm!

Yes, it is silly. You stated you don't feel like you have control with just 10-13k of wind. Your boat is capable of 20k winds easy. Should you need to reef with just 10-13k? I'd say no (looking at...

Re: Lets talk about dinghies y'all

We have a 9.6 on the foredeck of our 31'. Sure it's close quarters, but you should be able to do it easy (unless your getting a 12'). We've even flown the spinnaker with the dink on the foredeck.

I think you get the gold star on this one. Back on SF Bay with the bare boat Catalina 27 (and I do mean bare), I had bought myself a "knot stick". They are still available and I just...

Re: Knotmeter Calibration

Theoretical idea is good... I've concluded this gauge will NEVER be accurate. I think I'll just watch the GPS.

Re: Boat selling question

I can't see that. How could a buyer broker "make" the private seller add his cost to the deal. I'd tell the broker and the prospective buyer to go jump in the river. That's just me. I do see what...

Re: Am I wasting my time with old guages?

I had 35 year old sailing instruments and decided that I was tired of seeing which ones weren't going to work on any given day. Found the masthead sensor to be the culprit... Nothing around that...

Re: Spinnaker guys and sheets

Thanks George. I have a double ended 12' honest to goodness spinnaker pole with the center uphaul and downhaul bridles. I like the tweaker line idea. KIS (keep it simple)! :)

Re: Spinnaker guys and sheets

So if my pole has the center mounted bridle for up and down hauls... The guy is still to get hold of that pole and hold it, no? I can jibe doing an end for end. Is the guy attached to the pole?
