Re: More Ventilation in Aft Cabin --Center Cockpit with Dodger

Standing at the bottom of the companionway there is definitely air flowing in whether the cabintop port lights are open or not.

I suspect that the aft opening overhead hatches are a factor. YMMV.

Re: Florida is at it again

Really? Even in a tourist economy like Florida? So we should just mail our money in and stay home?

Re: More Ventilation in Aft Cabin --Center Cockpit with Dodger

I have a different experience.

40' center cockpit boat, three hatches forward of the cockpit (front to rear, one forward opening and two aft opening), a substantial dodger, and an aft opening...

Re: Florida is at it again

The Florida state Senate bill continues through a string of committees unchanged - it continues to include the 200' setback.

Actually not the case. The Seven Seas Cruising Association (SSCA) (http://ssca.org) is leading the charge with support from BoatUS, AGLCA, and some from NMMA. BoatUS has been a lot quieter this year...

Re: Legal distance for towing another boat?

Unlike most political issues, IMO and ITU agreements actually demonstrate tremendous agreement across the planet.

Re: Legal distance for towing another boat?

I don't think there is a law per se. There are lights you should show for short and long tows. For support boats (including dinghies) people don't generally show them. You pretty much want the towed...

This post is a disservice to people that don't understand the disorganized rudeness and cruelty of April Fools. Bad taste and just plain mean.

Re: Thought there was something strange..

Agreed. The only bridge I don't look up at is the Verrazano Narrows Bridge. At 228' I'm pretty sure I won't hit it. The Chesapeake Bay Bridge at 186' is close enough that I keep an eye on it.

Re: Need list things to have on boat.

There is a big difference between an open ended "tell me what to do/buy" and a more reasonable statement of what research you have done, your current thoughts, and a request for comment.
