You must live in a different world than I do:

- DWI/texting while driving
- extreme sports
- overdoses on drugs and alcohol
- hiking/hunting in rugged terrain with blizzard forecasts
- using...

Re: Any seaworthy swing keel, row-able boats, with cabin.

Check out Eddy & Duff's "Dovekie." It might be a bit damp in the PNW, even with the doghouse installed. Neat boat. 21 feet LOA, twin rotating leeboards/small retractable centerboard/kick up rudder,...

Too short...too long...too tight...too loose...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

It is - to me - a riddle.

Even if the boom was vanged or prevented to the toe rail how does that damage the hull to deck joint?

If the connection was though-bolted I don't see how it could...

Re: Yanmar loses RPM in gear
