Re: Rights during USCG Inspection.

We got boarded by the CG in Fort Pierce last fall; they put two aboard and then followed along so that we could make way while they inspected. They searched the vessel pretty thoroughly, but before...

Re: Getting sold boat prices from broker

That's a bit oversimplified. A *busy* broker might be able to turn sellers away and not bother with overpriced boats. A *good* broker will do his best to set realistic expectations for his seller. In...

You might need to look into what's required to do business down there as a non-citizen. My understanding is that it's relatively complicated and expensive, at least if you want to be above board.

Re: What to do what to do :)

Pacific Seacraft 31s have that open layout that would feel more spacious, but again that may be a pricier boat than what you were looking at, at least for one in nice shape.

Most builders have...

Re: Tips for not getting cheated on fuel when chartering.

You're talking about a fuel bill in the low three digits, at most, on a $2k-$4k charter, with a very small profit margin on the fuel, and they have to do it by lugging 5-gallon jugs? No, I think...

Re: Derelict Catalina22 value? (bottom feeding content)

Don't pay for a derelict boat that's been sitting for a decade or more.

If you think you can get something useful out of it, offer to dispose of it for them, maybe even charge a small fee. It's...

Re: in mast furling issue

I've had similar issues on an in-mast C36, and it does seem to get worse as the sail ages and gets a little baggy. If you've got a loose furl and it's doubled over on itself inside the mast, that's...

Re: Pictures os sharks! It's Shark Week!

Do nurse sharks count? This one visited our boat daily at Warderick Wells. Reached down and touched her as she cruised by. But I didn't join her in the water. The nurse sharks at Staniel Cay are...

Re: Creepy sailing stories?

Heading south off the coast of Florida, we passed an inflatable dinghy floating out in the open ocean in the middle of the night. As we passed it was close enough to tell what it was (barely, with...

Re: What's the *second* best way to keep spiders off your boat?

I always assumed it's a freshwater/saltwater thing. Ours is brackish but more fresh than salt, and we definitely get spiders. OP's location in Oriental is similar but probably a little more salty...

Re: Lazarette lid supports - spring or gas?

The gas struts are really nice on larger lockers/lids. They'd get in the way a little if it's a smaller opening. They'll probably need replacement every couple of years in a marine environment, but...
