Re: Sinking Feeling

I have an open transom, so I don't have cockpit drains so to speak. Just one huge one in the back!

Re: Sinking Feeling

My feeling is that seacocks are there for a reason. I couldn't sleep at night, away from my boat, knowing any of my sea cocks were open (and I have a lot of them) after having seen so many boat sink...

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

We've been delayed in our departure date, but it is now just two weeks off. We are renting our house out and we have almost put everything in storage. The boat is just about ready to go, with a...

Re: A little Pollution Anyone?

Or we could just stop legal and illegal immigration. We almost have more immigrants come in every year than we have births.

Re: Anchoring Etiquette?

I'm only asking because we don't really have moorings where I live now. When I lived in Annapolis, you would see them, but I was never aware of any court case or statute that gave them the right to...

Well, you guys are definitely starting to make me appreciate where I boat and live. We just aren't that crowded here. :)

Re: Anchoring Etiquette?

Watching people anchor, and watching them drive down the interstate, have both convinced me, that humans are herd animals by instinct.

Re: visit Cuba

I think the main way to stay safe from any kind of seizure on a visit to Cuba, is just to make sure you don't do anything that could be interpreted by Cuban authorities as an effort to help a Cuban...

Re: Glue Gun Usage

Like Awlgrip, Imron, and the West System, hot glue gets it's bad reputation mainly from people using it who don't know what they are doing.

Re: visit Cuba

Well, after having arrested a few thousand people, I would estimate that 95 per cent, fall into number 2.

But, truthfully, who hasn't ever broken any law? If people didn't, we could save a lot of...

Re: visit Cuba

Without a doubt. Same as with any other law. Those who aren't going to obey any particular law, for whatever reason, don't really worry about it. If they did, they would be following it instead.

Re: Florida is at it again

Re: Argh! - Charter Hull Scratches

Like with a rental car, inspect the hell out of anything you rent before you leave with it, and document any existing damage with photos (it's so easy these days with smart phones).

Re: Glue Gun Usage

I think most people would recognize a difference in gluing your keel on with hot glue, and in gluing your window curtain attachment rods with it.

When I use it, rather than think of it as glue and...

Re: Catalina 30', How seaworthy?

So it/they sunk during the race?

Because, if they didn't sink, and did make it, wouldn't that make them "blue water capable".

Or if I drive to Los Angles from New York in my 69 Galaxie, and ...

Re: Sharks in the Chesapeake Bay
