Re: Passenger sick for two days after day sail???

If she got a bit dehydrated that could make her feel sick for days, until she got re-hydrated.
Although it may be more about electrolytes than actual hydration. Gatorade can usually give a speedy...

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon

The point I'm trying to make is that if you are not concerned about getting to a specific destination and not bound by a schedule, then it is easier to avoid those conditions.

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon

Why?

If the getting to the destination is the reason for the cruise, then the cruise may seem like work.

But if the destination is just an excuse or justification for the cruise, what...

Re: 25 foot seas in the Gulf Of Mexico this weekend

The warnings are there but you had to know what to look for.

Many years ago, back before these storms were detected far in advance I moved to FL and became friends with a couple of locals whose...

Re: Florida Anchoring and Mooring pilot program.

That will depend on the size of your boat. And if you only look at the big marinas that are right in town, then yes, it can be expensive.

But at smaller marinas the rate I usually see is...

Re: Florida Anchoring and Mooring pilot program.

Here's a quote from the local paper announcing the opening of the Sarasota mooring field:

"The downtown mooring area has been a place to anchor boats for more than a century. For decades, it was...

Re: Florida Anchoring and Mooring pilot program.

It's homeowners with a view of a quiet, scenic, secluded cove who don't like a boater enjoying their "private" water front.

Re: Florida Anchoring and Mooring pilot program.

You're actually identifying my two objections to the mooring field.

#1 - it's being used to ban anchoring in a large part of the area, and

#2 - A mooring actually costs more than a slip at...

Re: Florida Anchoring and Mooring pilot program.

You keep citing the Marathon mooring field as an example. I have no knowledge about that.

But the very expensive mooring field in Sarasota was implemented for one reason - to enable the city to...

Re: Look at a chart before setting GPS course

OK, I can understand making a mistake entering a course on a GPS. But shouldn't someone have been on watch? Unless the weather was really bad, how could they miss seeing England? And if the...

Re: Questions about standoff distance and narrow channels

I'm probably thinking too much about this but:

If you're on a small sailboat with no motor, working your way up a channel. There is no commercial traffic, just a bunch of recreational motor...

Re: state lettering required?

No, only the registration number on the bow is required by the state.

You can put whatever you like on the transom.

Re: A philosophical divide?

A lot of maintenance is just a chore, no fun at all.

But other maintenance projects are an oportunity to improve the boat. It can involve making a modification to make it work better, relocating...

Re: Vanishing Seamanship

I don't think it's as much about taking risks as it is about lack of planning.

Before GPSs became popular, planning ahead was necessary. Now you can just shove off and follow the line on the...

Re: Vanishing Seamanship

That's actually being debated on some aviation forums. Many of us can see that, while GPSs have improved "positional awareness", in many cases it results in a loss of "situational awareness".

Re: Docking help

What I did was practice where there was nothing to hit. Find a crab pot or mooring buoy in calm water and and practice coming up to it from different directions. Try to have your boat stop dead 1...

How do you "stand by" for a bridge opening?

I would appreciate any tips on how to wait for a bridge opening.

Let's say you just missed a bridge opening in a narrow channel and needed to wait 20 minutes for the next one. The wind is at a...

Re: Cruising southwest Florida - restaurants with docks

The Crow's Nest Marina and Restaraunt is an excellent place to dock and eat.

It's just inside the Venice inlet.

Re: Need Opinion: Chart plotter, north up or course up?

I'm surprised no one has mentioned what I find is the best thing about COG (course over ground) up.

It lets me easily see how the currents are affecting the vessel. Especially in unfamiliar...
