I bought the 3G radar and because of some weird issue that the installer couldn't figure out, they redid the whole system and upgraded me to the 4G unit. I admit that I don't use it often but when I...

Re: Any passionate sailors willing to help answer a few questions?

What your survey did not do was investigate whether there's a bias in answers depending on young/old or new sailor/old salt, east/west US coast, cultural differences, etc. I would suspect that older...

Re: Sailing Alone Better?

I love sailing alone! It heightens the senses and I get in a groove that I just don't feel when sailing with others. When there is crew aboard, and unless I'm racing, I let them have the wheel so I...

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Yeah, Nike probably had more help than she let on. Might have even had a boyfriend here or there, and she kept us all in the dark. Makes me question the integrity of everything I see or read on the...
