"The bloated dead horse" gallops on... will it reach the shore?

Brian,
My post had no intent to belittle. My apologies if you felt that.

Your original topic's title made this almost mandatory reading, so I entered the hallowed halls of SN, cap in hand as a...

Liferafts and short-handed

Smackdaddy.
I admit to spending most of my time on the water racing inshore and offshore. (Mea Culpa - hangs head in shame :D). However, when I'm not, I'm probably doing a short-handed delivery (no...

Surviving is a laminate of many integrated activities

So... for a topic that was billed as as very important, it seems to have deteriorated into the following sequence of events:

- a boat owner with a dramatic tale of an empty life raft that would...

getting aboard a raft

Many current designs have an inflatable platform to assist the climb into the raft. The webbing ladders are almost useless, particularly when exhausted. The key problem with the webbing ladders is...

Extreme sweeping generalization on liferafts

Sweeping generalizations like that do no one any favors.

Perhaps on the raft you discovered, there were some "features" that made THAT brand and design of raft questionable.

To make the...

Trimaran

Looks a bit like a modified coachroof on a Piver designed tri hull.

Edit: CruisingDad, I don't have a problem with the functionality of furling a headsail completely. They clearly work for that...

Roller Reefing Headsails

I have a hatred for roller reefing a headsail. No issues with roller furling i.e. all the way out, or furled all the way in, but a partially "reefed" headsail not only has terrible shape, but...

Morgan NA 40

Despite being an IOR vintage design, there's nothing about the design itself that would stop it from being a good cruiser. It's what you do to prep it and yourself for a trip like that.

Some have...

9ft to 12ft small chop?

The more questions asked of him, the more his story unravels. On SA he says the interval was 5 seconds and change. With those wave heights, I'd say that's no small chop. That's close and steep...
