Re: The trend in new cruising boats....

I can't imagine not having a traveler. it makes my boat so much easier to handle than she would be with a fixed sheeting position.

Re: Another fatal attempt at "Youngest to circumnavigate"

None of the standby systems I have used were automatic. You had to react to the loss of suction and turn a pump or valve on.

Re: Another fatal attempt at "Youngest to circumnavigate"

To add to this: All IFR airplanes have redundant instruments run from seperate power sources. In a typical light airplane those sources are the vacuum pump and electrical system. If the vacuum pump...

Re: Another fatal attempt at "Youngest to circumnavigate"

I would actually enjoy a round-the-world trip with my son, but I don't want to sell my boat to pay the gas bill and if I take the boat work will quit paying me after a month or two, so I am kind of...

Re: Another fatal attempt at "Youngest to circumnavigate"

By law the youngest will ALWAYS be 17. The FAA sent a nasty-gram to CFIs many years ago about "records" set by young children with CFIs in the right seat. It was strongly suggested not to participate...

Re: Another fatal attempt at "Youngest to circumnavigate"

My best evil trick was running the trim full up or down while doing the unusual attitudes :D
Trim runaway is a real thing too and can be quite serious. For one example, most large jets have a lot...

Re: Another fatal attempt at "Youngest to circumnavigate"

Well if you aproach it like at least half the powerboat drivers I see you'll die quickly :rolleyes:

Re: Another fatal attempt at "Youngest to circumnavigate"

Depends. As an instrument instructor that was my daily grind. Absent that kind of experience, it could be.

Re: Battery Acid!

If you know the battery is charged, can't you use a hygrometer (sp?) to see if the acid concentration is high or low?

Re: Another fatal attempt at "Youngest to circumnavigate"

AFAIK no one has any idea why they crashed. 17 years old is old enough to be a licensed pilot - this was not one of those goofy 7 year old kid with a flight instructor "records". That said, over...

Re: Help needed.

Anyone doing a safe tow job would charge several thousand dollars to do it. These boats are not all that rare, so unless you have time to sail her home look for a closer one.

Re: What is proper dingy etiquette?

Leaving the engine up is BAD. Someone not wishing to do major repairs on their boat will likely board your dinghy and put it down for you.

Re: What is proper dingy etiquette?

I would be VERY pissed if someone took off with my dinghy. It would cost more than some "big boats" are worth to replace and is not a public utility.
Boat yard ladders are a different story. It is...

Re: Dog on board

Total thread creep, but we had someone SUCCEED at getting into the prop at a fly-in. A friend of mine helped her out while we got her an ambulance to reassemble some missing parts of her scalp :eek:...

Re: Dog on board

Here is what NOT to do:
Boat shows up at marina. Dog gets off unsupervised and lays a HUGE steamer on the dock. Owners eventually see this and aim a hose at it to send it over the side. They did not...

re: Chesapeake bay tidal currents.

OpenCPN is the best. There is a slider somewhere in there to advance the time and watch it change. Only place you see 2-3 knots is in someplace like Kent Narrows. Other than that 1 knot is about it.
