Re: Learning navigation while land-locked?

I would add that if you have a Coast Guard Auxiliary or Power Squadron close by take a class. Start with the basics and keep practicing them as you learn more. You get a cheep GPS and use it to find...

Re: Recommendations needed - baby/infant PFD and harnesses

When you get a pfd for the little one make sure it has a croche strap and that you/they use it. Kids body shape is not quite the same as adults. All too often when the child goes in the water they...

Re: Tips on Watch Standing

True enough, but in my defense, I was not the captain and it was a long way from shore. He did get squared away after that and a little talk from the crew. We were young, all of us. Pages from my...

Re: Tips on Watch Standing

True but we were working. it was a fishing boat not passage making or pleasure. Didn't have that problem when passage making. Crew selection is everything.

Re: How do you tie a cleat hitch?

Great conversation. I know the U.S.C.G. does not use locking hitches on dock lines, sometimes called a weather hitch. The consideration with a round turn at the base of the cleat is jamming at high...

Re: Boating safety classes

Smurphny, LOL, good one. I know around here the fish like for you to share. Sometimes they even jump in the boat and expect to be fed a meal. Some end up being one.

Re: Ship collision - that is going to leave a mark

After watching this, it looks like the smaller ship tried to pass the larger one and them turn across his bow in order to avoid the ship crossing ahead. I think only after the smaller one turned did...

Re: Boating safety classes

If you can, contact your local Coast Guard Auxiliary. They will have a boating safety class that should work. Cost is just for the materials usually $25 -$35 or so. Yes it is for power boats but lots...

Re: lights on a trailered sailboat

I assume it has a stern light as well. I'd check the condition of the wires, they may need replacing as well. Shouldn't be that much work to run new wires maybe even get some of those LED lights that...
