Re: possible to buy a seaworthy sailboat under $20000 that requires very little fix?

Is it possible? Certainly. The real question is how much time and effort (not to mention expense) do you want to put into the effort? And you're a lot more likely to end up with
buyer's remorse, if...

Re: Cabin comfort when motoring

I've never experienced any problems being below under power, but a good dodger and bimini can make it less necessary to have to "hide" in the cabin during wet weather.

Re: House bank battery life: Real Experience

After 3 years of daily use, my West Marine branded AGM Group 31's lasted another 4 years with about 1/4 of the usage. They have been trouble free, and with access to a Port Supply card, cost about...

Pretty much anyplace that sells paint, is going to have denatured alcohol.

Re: Chucking my propane stove, what to replace it with

Looking back, I often wish I'd simply put in a two burner Origo, rather than a new propane stove/oven and redoing the lines. I haven't ended up doing near the amount of "cooking" I thought I would...

Re: Advice From Young Punks

Learning anything is a combination of different things. To ignore anything that adds to your knowledge base, is simply cheating yourself of a possible resource. That doesn't mean you have to have a...

Re: Advice From Young Punks

As cliched as it sounds, one step at a time. And this is where books can be of benefit, to learn the mechanics of sailing. Once you have an understanding of the how to (and why), then you can apply...

Re: Do You Sail Solo?

Other than the trip from Texas to Tampa, I've always singlehanded. The one thing I haven't seen mentioned is, to me, the cardinal rule: Plan Ahead. From checking the weather forecast, to having lines...

Re: Howdy

If you're pretty sure you want to pursue sailing, then I'd definitely suggest reading as much as you can find on the mechanics of sailing and boat maintenance. And though reading is not a substitute...

Re: Howdy

Spent 2 nights at Golden Isle Marina, but that's the extent of my knowledge of the area. Believe Brunswick isn't that far away though. I'd recommend going around to the area marina's and if they have...

Re: Where and how much can you sail the ICW ?

The amount of sailing you can do, for most of the ICW, is about how far you want to go each day (though wind direction will play a part as well). As to bridges, once you're north of Fort Pierce, they...

Re: Picking up a mooring single handed

Re: North Carolina - best place for sailing???

There really aren''t any towns with easy access to the Albemarle. Along the Outer Banks you have really shallow water, and Manteo on Roanoke Island is a long motor out to open water. You do have some...

Re: What do you do for food on a day cruise?

Something else to consider is the weather. I love my red hot beef burritos, but not when it's 94 degrees outside.

Re: What do you do for food on a day cruise?

Kinda depends on if you just want something to eat, or you want to have a meal. But for a daysail, especially with others onboard, I just go with something simple, and then sit down to a meal at the...

You basically have three options. Foredeck, davits or tow it. I've done all three. I prefer my davits.

Re: Anyone have experience with Force 10 heaters

I have a Force 10 propane heater that was inoperative when I bought the boat, and not something I bothered to fix, as I had no desire to run another propane line into the boat.

I use a solar shower, which I keep on top of my dodger (the top is hard, not canvas), and shower in the cockpit, sitting down. If there are people around, I wear swim trunks until I get to that area,...

Re: self contained battery powered LED interior lights

Check in RV stores as well. I picked up some AAA powered LEDs similar to what ChasH posted at Walmart for (I think) $20 for a 3 pack, in their RV section in automotive.
