Re: Good Small Boat for Older, Fatter Woman to learn on

Wow, this is getting complicated, so let me add more useless yak to the discussion. Looking forward to that 35 foot cruiser, you will want a tender, one that can be towed or stored on deck. So maybe...

Re: How to get back in after falling overboard solo...

There is a YouTube video of a guy testing his ability to get back on his boat via a trailing rope ladder like affair. While he was successful there were some lessons learned.

Re: What to take, toss, sell or store

Oh, and one more caution. When I was buying my boat I spent four days at the brokerage and there was a guy putting his boat into brokerage. They told him to remove all his stuff from his 30 foot...

Re: What to take, toss, sell or store

Mike,
I recently read an interesting little book titled "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up". In it the author describes a method of determining that which you will keep. Her fundamental criteria...

Mr Perry,
Would you explain from a yacht design perspective the differences in these terms:

Re: Would it be feasible to put a sail on this boat

I didn't think of out riggers. That would be a pretty simple solution. Remove able too.

Re: First time Owner

Lots of freeboard. Take a close look at the boarding ladder and make sure it works great. Wooden treads, solid attachment, good hand holds at deck level. Even if you have to spend money on this, it...

Re: Using sails of another boat?

So, the research says:
I for the Tanzer is 2.6 feet greater than the Catalina.
J for the Tanzer is 0.5 feet greater than for the Catalina.

Re: Solo sailing

Did you make these videos? If so, can you tell us about your equipment and how you edited them? They seem much better that typical GoPro videos.

Re: Help needed to develop fun sailing events for a small club

Re: broken headstay turnbuckle under sail .

Just saw this. Go to rigging only. They have good stuff at good prices. Pack up everything and ship it to them, then work with them on the phone to choose exactly what you want.

Re: Help the "new generation" pick a cruising boat

One of the things Mike said above is really important: "built for a short handed cruiser".
Another issue is "the plan". It is really hard for me to imagine that three twenty something year olds...

Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

Sherwood,
Over my years I have noticed the decline in craftsmanship. In fact it has become crapmanship too many times. When I do find highly skilled craftsmen (women) I see that they are well paid...

Re: Just set sail

If your boat has a fixed keel, you probably cannot capsize it in Barnegat Bay, as it takes a combination of wind and wave, both pretty severe, to overcome the ballast of a fixed keel. While wearing...

Re: Completed 4th recent Cape May trip

Nice boat. Great trip, one I wanted to take when I lived there, but at 22 ft., thought better of it. Most I ever did was Toms River to Shady Side.
