Re: How do you stretch your season in the northeast

I have a full enclosure on the cockpit - just like sailing in a greenhouse - I love it. When I was on my way home from Florida in March, the temperature outside was a brisk 48 degrees when I reached...

Re: Reality at Sea - For Cruisers, Singlehanders, and Normal People.

Smack, I agree - you should always help someone in distress - ALWAYS!

Re: Southeast Florida Coastal Cruising Q's

My Morgan 33 Out Island only draws 4 feet with a full keel. It sails great in both the bays and ocean, dry ride, and more interior space than most 41s. They're all over South Florida and some at...

Re: There's gold in their old Pots

Toss some trash out the car window while there's a state trooper behind you in his car. He will arrest you, then you can go out on the road cleanup crews, and get paid a couple bucks a day for...

Re: Southeast Florida Coastal Cruising Q's

It would be hard to beat the sailing in Biscayne Bay and the keys. If I lived in that part of the country year round, that would be my first choices, and all the way to the Dry Tortugas when I need...

Re: There's gold in their old Pots

Essentially, the derelict crab pot recovery program was nothing more than a giveaway program for out of work commercial watermen. Keep in mind the watermen of Maryland and Virginia have brought about...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Newhaul, for that price you can buy a pretty good moped, much greater carrying capacity, 120 MPG, and be able to haul groceries and booze back to the boat with ease. Yeah, it weighs a bit more, takes...

Re: Scum in Fuel Tank

Diesel fuel is pretty much filthy, and because of this "stuff," which is nothing more than residue will accumulate in the tank. The big problem arises when water gets in the fuel - then the stuff...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

I've only rode a couple folding bikes - they were very unstable to say the least, which I think is because of the smaller tires. A 26-inch is about as good as it gets, at least from my standpoint. I...

Re: Ever had a MEDICAL EMERGENCY while at SEA?

there are lots of good pulse oximeters available at prices starting as low as $29. I've found most of them are highly accurate. Yes, they can be fooled by nail polish, but that's about the only thing...

Re: Labor Day Weekend?

Sorry I missed you, Shawn. I got back to the marina just about the time the storm hit - pretty nasty winds and some hail. I had to work today, but next week I have 6 days off in a row, so I hope to...

Re: Ever had a MEDICAL EMERGENCY while at SEA?

To be perfectly honest, if you are single handed, and 1,500 miles offshore, it doesn't make a damned bit of difference - THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO OTHER THAN HOPE FOR THE BEST!
