Re: 45' + blue water cruiser

Actually, a tight strong small boat may stand up to a big blow better than an impressive larger one. I wasn't seeking to dissuade as much as pointing out that anything over circa 45' - 47' is a lot...

Re: rammed:by the customs & border patrol

There's no 'debate'; USCG boarding a vessel, moored or in motion, while wielding M-16s is an armed home invasion if you live aboard. If there's no probable cause, they've committed a criminal act.

Re: 45' + blue water cruiser

Could be I was being told about day-sailor versions. People will buy too little boat, and then try to go places.

Hidden (glassed-in) chainplates are bad. They quietly corrode until a load causes...

Re: Plants on your boat

Naturalists allege that Felis Domestica originated in North African arid country. Why then are cats happy aboard sailboats and like to eat fish?

Re: Have you ever hit a shipping container?

It might be cheaper to make shipping containers that sink, but what about all those plastic toys and other buoyant crap they might contain? The top of the container would need to release (explosive...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

'Many former' is an gross exaggeration. Most yachties expire leaving a fiberglass legacy. Nor are most sailors circumnavigators or transoceanic sailors. Most rarely get out of sight of land.

Re: "The chainplate will buff out and probably be okay"

The exterior chain-plates of the Morgan OI is the best approach. Stainless steel needs oxygen and sunlight to remain sound.

Never allow dissimilar metals to touch, or at least never in any place...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Ah, that secret rot called rust.

No, fiberglass, laid up like a Morgan OI 47', is the better transoceanic hull. Fiberglass reinforced with carbon-fiber core matting would be really strong, and...

Re: Toodles of latitude. Oddles of attitude. Doodles of vestitude?

Vestments are clothes. 'Vesting' is a financial term, but one is also vested with office or clothes as well as a pension.

May be an implication about the relaxed attitude L&A once had about...

Re: Crossing from St Martin to the Azores

"PC ... holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

What an accurate and exceedingly funny aphorism.

Re: No financial crisis ?

If you've never before personally owned a vessel or motor-home, starting out with charters is the better plan. You gradually widen the adventure, chartering locally for a Summer (or the best season...

Re: 45' + blue water cruiser

A used cruising boat will always be cheaper, and will have the kinks worked out. The Morgan OI ketches are very hardy vessels. I've often heard that Catalinas are too built too light for extended...

You might look for a private mooring arrangement along the Perdido River. Depending on what you draw, Dog River may have some workable docks too.

Re: Why Are Boats In Europe Cheaper?

Re: Have you ever hit a shipping container?

Cruising sailors follow the winds, but containers fall off the motor vessels that go direct point-to-point, and then those containers likely wind up in mid-ocean gyres. In writing such an article,...
