Re: Photos from the Baltic Sea

Re: Boat Parnerships in/around NYC

Stuyvesant Yacht Club on City Island offers a "Sailing Associate" membership. It gives you unlimited access to some clun boats. I'm a little fuzzy as to what's there right now, but I think a...

Re: How many insure their boat with only liability insurance?

I've got my insurance through the US POwer Squadrons (carrier is The St Paul) and it's so affordable, it doesn't make sense to skimp. If you have a built-in engine/fuel tank, you'd damn well better...

Re: Slip vs. T-head

Not what you asked, but I'll take a mooring over both any time.

Re: tradition for new owner?

The salty spirits I'm familiar with would look askance at wine - cheap or expensive. Rather than run any risks, I'd go with rum.

Re: Intermediate sailing class or dinghy class?

I'm always amused by people who don't react well to boats because they're not good swimmers. The whole point of the boat is to stay out of the water.

I agree wholeheartedly with nolatom that...

Re: Public / Private Beaches in the BVI

I know of at least one private beach owner on St. John who allows his Rottweiler to roam free specifically to discourage those who who dinghy onto his property.

Re: Boat Insurance Rate Increase

I don't use BoatUS. I have my insurance through the US Power Squadron. My increase this year was quite modest, but it was the first increase I've had in a while.

Re: Hood Furlers

I've got a Hood, but it's really old and I don't even know the model. It's a continuous line furler which I would highly recommend. Never an override or jam with one of these. I know they're still...

Re: Wind indicator NOT for mast top

I agree with most of what Capt aaron says, except "That's the true wind direction, every thing on the boat is apparent wind. " While true, we sail in the apparant wind, so I wouldn't dismiss it so...

Re: Winter Storage Covers

I agree with Plumbean. I've got a full Fairclough cover that's 10 years old and has handled everything Old Man Winter has thrown at it. I'd say, next to the boat itself, it's the best money I've...

Re: First they took the they want the paint!

Yeah, well, we're subject to the same regulations, but the response hasn't been nearly so draconian. I'm required to put down a tarp before sanding or painting (dry sanding is OK, for wet sanding...

Re: A simple gear question for a new sailor

The first time a good gust pulls the jib sheet through your hands or you do a rough jibe and the main sheet gets away from you, you'll know why many of us wear gloves. On a nice, gentle day, I'll...

Re: Need a new jib halyard. What kind?

I like the double-braided Dyneema from New England Ropes. It's nice and easy on the hands and very low stretch.

Re: Watch Out for Lost Containers!

Since the Navy lost Culebra as a target range, maybe tey could start using these containers as targets? The mostly submerged ones would be great for torpedo runs. :)
