Re: Stupid question? Sparks when I connect inverter

Sparks even when the switch is off (obviously) show current passing even when the switch is off. Do you have a multimeter? You could check the resistance between the red and black battery clamps with...

Re: First Accident What Did I Do Wrong?

I didn't intend to be elitist or condescending, and I'm sorry if it sounded that way. However, it's obvious that the OP wanted to have a fun day on the water, but ended up with costly damage (and...

Re: First Accident What Did I Do Wrong?

First mistake: you went out solo at the helm without first having gained some experience sailing with others more experienced. Sailing is a lot of fun, but can quickly turn fatal if you don't know...

Re: Crewed for the first time yesterday - wow!

OK, at last a subject I can contribute my expertise to. ;-)

Other than the usual scraped knees, pinched fingers and onomatopoeia of the boom, I had one odd injury this last season. During a race,...

Re: UK sailors missing after sailboat capsizes 1000 miles east of Cape Cod - Capecodo

I had missed the information that the wreck was found inverted with (possibly) her keel missing. That does drastically diminish the survival hopes. Losing your keel suddenly like that is a very...

Re: UK sailors missing after sailboat capsizes 1000 miles east of Cape Cod - Capecodo

Am I being naive when I compare the search & rescue efforts for this yacht with that for the Malaysian airliner?

In the case of the airliner, the probability of finding anyone alive was zero a...

Re: Fraud on the hook

I'm glad to see that most sailors (and most notably Pat Stockwell) are appalled by the behaviour of the Fata Morgana crew.

One would expect Stockwell to draw some grim pleasure from the fate of...

Re: Lack of Confidence

Excellent advice. Safety issues need to be tackled first. Next I'd look at the prop or some other small, isolated job which can give you a feeling of achievement when you cross it off your list.

Re: End of the sailing season

Well it rains nearly every day once the monsoon starts in earnest, and the weather gets very rough.

Our little sailing club has only open dinghies, so there's no cover either.

End of the sailing season

It's curtains down on another sailing season in India as we brace for the monsoon rains. Four to five months of withdrawal symptoms ahead. :(

Re: Holding tank size

If you're at or near a marina, just get your holding tank pumped as and when needed. When passagemaking, it flushes out directly to sea. So why do you need a big(ger) holding tank anyway?

Re: New sailing family from Easton Pa!

TWO free boats? I turned a very nasty shade of green just reading that far, and your photos just made for a darker shade of jealous colour :-) Need a karma reboot!

Re: Are we elitists?

I'm new to Sailnet myself, and I had been a bit hesitant to join at first as I don't actually own a boat, and also I'm from India, which never features very high on cruising plans of most boaters....

Re: Runners and 360 degree penalties

Another question: Is it possible to tighten both stays for the duration of your penalty so that you don't risk snapping your mast? Admittedly you won't get the best sail shape, but since this is only...

Re: Runners and 360 degree penalties

OK, so I meant "check stays". Sorry I was not familiar with the terms. These boats are the ancient seabird half-raters with gunter rig and check- stayed mast.
