Re: Rebel Heart Lawsuit Dismissed

I think the two known lawyers above got to "but given the facts of this case . . ." and agreed to disagree on the interpretation. That sounds like the very definition of a decision for a fact finder...

Re: Reality check

To the OP's question: no, those boats should be fine for those purposes. Ground tackle doesn't always reflect capability -- sometimes seller's will pull the good stuff and bring it to their next...

Re: Need advice on choosing a Boat

Sounds like fun Eric! I wonder whether you can't accomplish that in a boat in the middle range without too much "upgrading". Is it just you living aboard? I was happy as hell on a 33'er (very...

Re: Need advice on choosing a Boat

There are so many things that make price and length less than the ideal criteria for evaluation (not to sound like SD :-) ) Can you tell us where you sail and what (besides living on the boat) you'd...

re: How old is too old and how cheap too cheap

Develop some objective criteria about the design condition, equipment and needs of the boat you want. Price and age don't really have anything to do with anything (IMO of course). If you were on...

Re: Fly Into Marsh Harbor

Easiest answers are from Google. Pick 3 FL cities (say JAX MCO and MIA) and google "JAX to MHH; MCO to MHH, MIA to MHH) you'll have a tone of info in about 60 seconds. The rest is just details. ...

Re: Rallies Gone Wrong

Congrats Out - Nice trip. Didn't know the SDR had a $250 fee. Was watching your boat on the tracker and wanted to tell you that on day 3 maybe (???) you dropped off for a few hours. Were you using...

Best answer thus far was "depends". Second best was "you've provided too little info". Hell, you haven't told us either the asking price or what make and model boat it is . . .. Even in the bast...

Re: Rallies again.

Oh man . . . even a little 10% spot like that has to be making this morning miserable for a lot of families watching from home.

Re: Rallies again.

So the fleet trackers (and btw the C1500 has a significantly slicker fleet tracking interface than those cheapskates at the SDR) show the 2 fleets on slightly different courses. It is interesting...

Re: Rallies again.

Obviously, you're talking about the outside route to Beaufort. I guess the time depends a lot on boat size and conditions, but maybe 36 hours??? It looks like the SDR boats are staying inside of...

Re: Universal to Kubota Parts list?

You can google Universal 5424 manual and there are all sorts of pdf copies free online. They will include exploded views of the pump. Here is one (kinda cumbersome) site which is easy to view. Rec...

Re: Rallies again.

It appears to both be narrower and running slower crossing SE just below b-fort (narrow top speeds 1-1.5knts vs many miles wide at 3knts+ off of Norfolk). However, my understanding of the classic...

Re: Rallies again.

I get confused by the 2 different sets of GS imagery. This one suggests some real benefits to either leaving from Beaufort or hugging the coats and not crossing the Stream until well south of...

Re: Rallies again.

The C1500 fleet seems to be made up of significantly larger boats. They also have a history of heading out in nastier conditions (and IIRC they have trumpeted that willingness to shove off earlier...

Re: Rallies again.

Interesting thread. I was with you 100% until the end when you suggest leaving later. I agree that there doesn't seem to be defined break between hurricane season and the onset of the winter...

Re: Radar - what to look for

I find weather radar to be really useful. It is not a one glance type of thing though. You need to see the targets develop and move. Once you are in the middle of heavy precipitation, it is...

I don't know enough about BBR to compare / contrast for you. BBR does seem to have impressive close range clarity. However, the HD also works well at close range. For instance, I can make...

Hey Mike. Others will have more to say about Radar I am sure, but I wanted to make a point in regard to your statement about "brand specific verbiage". You can split the "RADAR" systems into two...

Re: Sailing Magazines

$25 a year is way too much for anything other than GOB or Wooden Boat. I doubt I pay more than $8 yr for BW, CW, Sailing and the like. It is cheap enough that I don't care how good any particular...
