Re: Cruising Gear #2

Keep in mind that if it were not for beer, most of us would not be alive today, America would not have been discovered because old Chris would have died of thirst while crossing the Atlantic, we...

Re: Good Small Boat for Older, Fatter Woman to learn on

I go for younger women

Though I ran em away they'd come back someday
Sure could manage a smile

Free books...

I stumbled across a link that provided me with lots of neat books to read, many about sailing. They can be downloaded in several formats, which makes it nice for those that Kindles and other...

Re: Good Small Boat for Older, Fatter Woman to learn on

Plenty of room on the Morgan - the headroom in the cabin is close to 7 feet throughout. Hope he likes fillet mignon and Margarettas, though. ;) Just kiddin!

Good luck on your search,

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Mike, some cruisers I met in Florida had nothing more than a vee shaped dam around the fill port of their water tank. After a few minutes of raining to allow the deck to wash clean, they merely...

Re: Good Small Boat for Older, Fatter Woman to learn on

A couple of the state parks in my area rent Hobies, and a season pass goes for just $399 - that translates to a lot of Hobie sailing.

Re: Good Small Boat for Older, Fatter Woman to learn on

Nancy, I'm married to an older, fat woman. She wants comfort, larger size, etc... Buy a big boat, don't worry about the old codger you're married to, and have yourself a ball sailing. In my opinion,...

Re: Question About Accidental Gybes

Smurf, you don't make any time while hove to - but it's a safer way to sleep than moving along while you're fast asleep. I personally know of one guy that made several Atlantic crossings and this was...

Re: Question About Accidental Gybes

Most of the oceanic sailors I know that single hand sail heave to during the day to get a good sleep prior to sailing after dark. A few, not many, will also just set the auto-pilot and hope for the...

Re: Small Live-Aboards?

I owned a Catalina 27 for five years - it was a great boat for day cruising, but not big enough for a live aboard by a long shot. It sailed very fast, even with just a 100-percent jib and full main...

Re: Where to anchor in Keys?

There are only two locations in the lower keys where you could pass beneath the bridges with a 65' mast and it would have to be at low tide. Seven Mile Bridge is the primary site, and the clearance...

Re: Where to anchor in Keys?

In Marathon, in front of one of the more popular waterside restaurant/bars, Dockside, is a mid sized anchorage where I saw a half dozen big cats anchored during the past month. It's just a short...

Re: noob question

I'm just guessing, but I suspect that you, like most military retirees, has to find a job in order to make ends meet. So, why not go to one of the technical schools that you frequently see advertised...

Always take a camera...

While cruising, there are so many things in nature that you just don't anticipate. That's why I always carry a couple cameras. Some events are so fast you never get an opportunity to take that once...

Re: Advice

Figure on about 50 miles a day average on the ICW, marina slip fees average about $2 a foot. There are a fair number of places to anchor if you draw less than 6 feet, and preferably less than 5 feet....

Re: 2015 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Shawn, You can eliminate the ice around your boat using nothing more than a heavy-duty aquarium bubbler. Just place the bubbler on the boat, connect about 10 feet of tubing to the air outlet, and...

Re: Best of these Florida cities for sailing

Donna is right, hoist the sails and sail to all of those destinations, and all the places between them. There is so much to see and explore along the east coast I'm amazed that more people never roam...

Re: Dinghy theft protection

Simple solution - solar powered electric fence - good to prevent those middle of the night boat boardings, too. :)

Re: Part-time Live-aboard SE Florida Mooring?

You are correct. Some of the other marinas will allow you to keep the boat there and be a part-time live aboard, but the city dock restricts this to leaving the boat for no more than 7 days at a...
