Re: How unsafe would this be for occasional heat?

Yeah, and those would be significant hazards. I absolutely would not use that without VERY GOOD detectors for CO and CO2.

Re: Water vs Gas

I guess my question would be, what are you trying to accomplish? If you have to run a watermaker, then you're going to be forced to run the engine more, and therefore you will need more fuel. Of...

Re: US, Cuba seek to normalize relations - Sailing Related

I think this is the MAIN attraction.

On the other hand, it will be the easiest island nation for an American to be able to sail to. You won't have the Gulf Stream issues to deal with that you...

re: US, Cuba seek to normalize relations - Sailing Related

You still have to apply to the State Department for a license--which means filling out forms, providing information, and justifying your visit based on one of their acceptable purposes--and then be...

re: US, Cuba seek to normalize relations - Sailing Related

Nothing has happened to change--even in the least little way--the legal issues for the average American who wants to visit Cuba. In my opinion, nothing will happen in that regard until, at the very...

Re: engine size?....

20 hp would be good for a 9,000 lbs. boat. The general rule of thumb is around 2 hp per 1,000 lbs. of displacement.

Re: Face mask for sailing?

I have the same problem. Just had two more basal cell spots removed a couple of weeks ago. I have one of those masks and do use it sometimes. Mostly, though, I just rely on a good hat and...

Re: New at Sail Net and need advise about Florida

Well, basically, they had no license requirement at all for a long, long time. Like most states in the U.S. Then they realized that maybe some sort of certification would be a good idea. But they...

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

Wise advice. "The Millionaire Next Door" is an excellent book that makes just that point. The truth is that the majority of the really wealthy people in this world do not look like millionaires. ...

Re: My Dog Won't Pee on the Boat

Exactly. You need to start at home. Perhaps he has a favorite place next to the house where he usually goes. So put the astroturf there, or even slip it under him as he starts to go. Soon enough...

Re: Using Diesel To Charge Batteries

Why not? I do that pretty regularly. Put the engine in reverse and it is really no different than when you are setting an anchor. Any mooring that can't hold your boat, in reverse gear, at a high...

Re: Do Sailboats Sweat?

Yeah, so you've gotten a number of answers to your question. I just wanted to add that I used to own a San Juan 23. Really liked it. Excellent boat for what it is, and sails very nicely.

Re: bareboat vs. Flotilla for 1st time in BVI
