Re: water water everywhere!

No advice from me. I'm in the same boat....heh-heh. Reminds me of a morning in Georgetown, Bahamas, when the person running the cruiser's net asked how many leaks we all found on our boats after a...

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Yep. Nice being tied up in the slip for that one. Our dinghy went "walkabout" during that storm. I was thinking it should be tied down on the dock. Next time - listen to the voice in your head,...

Re: Florida is at it again

Well, if they would just dig a nice 6' deep canal from Pensacola to Jacksonville, we could just skip visiting most of Florida's waters. No way to get from Texas to the Chesapeake without dealing...

Re: Florida is at it again

Maybe this helps?

Full time, active cruisers who sleep on their boats with no permanent residence on land are no longer considered
live-aboards under this law. As a result, their anchoring cannot...

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Crazy people in Austin (sorry, smack). I should know. Got a crazy sister there, and some crazy friends too.

Are you following along on SB 1548...

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Yes, it really is a big deal. Maybe it's the scary part that keeps some from ever actually living out their dreams. Hey, it's easy. After a couple of days, you guys will get in the groove. The...

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

You're sounding pretty motivated, Steve. I have vivid memory of the day we cast off that very dock back in November, 2012. What a great feeling that was. You guys are about to make some memories...

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

You guys are making me want to head over to Spanky's Liquor. I only have some Bud and cheap brandy aboard today.

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

We go 3 weeks on 80 gallons in the Bahamas. We could stretch that by washing dishes in seawater. Showers on deck with rainwater that collects in the dink during thunderstorms....

Re: Fixing a rudder

Probably ok to repair yourself then. Our 1982 rudder was dripping rusty water and had a bent post, so replaced with a new Foss Foam rudder before heading out. Best wishes with your repair. You...

Re: Fixing a rudder

Some info here - Rudder repair (http://westsystem.com/12/rudder.html)

Just curious how old the rudder is, and do you sail offshore much?

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Nope. As long as the bimini frame is fairly well mounted, those panels are going nowhere. More often than not, cruising boats have the panels mounted on the bimini frame. We've seen a few storms...

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

Yeah Baby! We just splashed last Monday. $1150.00 yard fees, and about $700.00 for paint. At least now we can do more than 3.9 knots....:)

Don't we all save for this stuff? Ummmm.....no. ...

Re: What to take, toss, sell or store

The hardest part is deciding to rid yourself of all the stuff. Once the decision is made, just do it.

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Best wishes getting this sorted out now. You sure don't want to get stuck in BFE with electrical issues.

Our old Hunter is on the move again, but painfully slow. We'll be in Rockport tomorrow,...
