Re: My New MOB Procedure

Well written, and well thought out!

Re: My New MOB Procedure

I believe that the transmission pattern is more of a torus than a disk.

I don't want to get too serious about this, or suggestions about best practices. I would rather take the chance to...

Re: My New MOB Procedure

Nope. I haven't had the radio for over a week yet, but I did read the manual.

Re: How to dock while towing dinghy

If the painter is "virtually straight up" as Minnewaska suggests, there is not enough line to find its way to (or around) the prop. I do this too when I pull into my slip; dinghy painter short so...

Re: Hello to all

Welcome!
I would bet heavily that an 82 Catalina 25 has a lead keel. DO NOT drill into the keel to install stainless threaded rods. (you can search here to find out why)

Re: Am I an SOB?

Two questions; Yes or No: Were they in grave danger? Did you help them?

If yes to the first, and no to the second - you would be an SOB.

Re: Lookin' for a new HANDHELD VHF

Follow up: I just ordered a new Standard Horizon HX870 for ~$210

The HX851 cannot be found (in stock) for less than ~$150.
