Re: VHF mounting advice

Port/stbd. The biggest issue is avoiding interference with halyards and stays. Besides, that is what the superyachts do. *grin*

I have a combo tricolor (incandescent) and anchor (LED) light on...

Re: New York to Cape May ok for beginners?

Tempest makes some good points.

Foremost is that a test run to Sandy Hook and back is a good idea. Definitely get some practice anchoring.

You can certainly make Atlantic City in one jump but...

Re: Crew wanted for Gov Cup Ches Bay MD

Like other estuaries (LIS and SF Bay) the big models for wind don't work very well. NOAA/NWS has a great micro-model for Chesapeake Bay that is quite accurate: CBOFS: Surface Winds Forecast Guidance...

Re: VHF mounting advice

The metal pole for your lights WILL interact with your VHF antenna. Not recommended.

Off the top of my head you have two options. Best would be returning your lights and getting two red 180...

Re: Is the Newport 27' a suitable liveaboard for a small family?

Interesting discussion.



I agree with Donna.

It sounds like your son is not yet 4 years old, which is your threshold for moving aboard. That means time. I infer that the coastal cruise to MX...

Re: Overnight Anchoring

I like that idea. I'm not sure red is the best color but the idea is outstanding. I have sling marks on the inside of the bulwarks but outside idea is outstanding. Blue maybe? Hard to confuse that...

Re: Overnight Anchoring

My mast stripes are silver. I don't have a cove strip per se. My boat has a 4" (about) blue stripe in the gelcoat below the toe rail and a big rub rail. Still, I like the idea of using...

Re: Overnight Anchoring

I've never seen that. I have about six feet of reflective tape on each side of the mast just below the masthead.

I do like the cove stripe idea. There are lots of reflective paints available. I'm...

Re: Headset Communicators?

You forgot the part where they stand there holding the line, thinking--apparently--they can stop a 25,000 or 40,000 lb boat without taking a couple of turns around a piling or cleat. *sigh*

Re: Headset Communicators?

In my opinion the biggest communication issue is that people are at opposite ends of the boat WAY too early. Stay together in the cockpit discussing things calmly during the approach. On most boats a...

Re: Water Heater Check Valve

That's a good approach. Some people with hard to reach water heaters install bypass valves that are easier to manage than disconnecting and connecting hoses every year.

Re: When to go Maine to Bahamas

It depends on whether you're going to dawdle or sail straight through.

Most people with insurance have a hurricane box line somewhere between Norfolk VA and Beaufort NC they won't cross before 1...

Re: Chesapeake Bay Anchor Holding Power test

That was my point - 81' long and 18' wide - I'm not sure they could get around the shoal at before Quiet Waters without putting the bow on the beach. Dividing Creek gets pretty narrow and the might...

Re: Chesapeake Bay Anchor Holding Power test

I don't think the Rachel Carson will fit in either Dividing Creek (the one on Wye Island) or Harness Creek.

Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

I'd rather hear bagpipes than the silly cannons some people think are so cool. Not good for those of us who have been shot at.

We might shoot back.

Re: RYA courses, how difficult are they, advice needed

The RYA courses are much better than what we get in the US. Read through the day skipper theory and if you think you can handle it there is no reason not to go straight to coastal skipper. You'll get...

Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

Music tastes vary.

"Barely audible" means different things to different people.

Sound travels very well over water.

Re: Solo Climbing the Mast- Block and Tackle

I worked as a rigger for a while.

I recommend the Brion Toss video Going Aloft (http://www.briontoss.com/catalog/videos.html). I don't think I have ever attained that level of professionalism.
