Re: Wood this be a fast boat?

She may not be super fast but that's a really pretty hull in my book. She has a tight turn at the bilges for that style of boat. Might give her a bit more stability. I would rather work on a...

Re: Worlds best anchor

I guess it's a fair point since Rocna probably figures everyone has an engine but still I would hesitate to go with an anchor that is under the manufactures recommendation. Not that that's the end...

Re: Sailing, safety, & size

Greg, I just find it hard to come up with solid answers to questions like this based on isolated opinions. Also such answers rarely apply to all circumstances. I know I feel more comfortable...

Re: Sailing, safety, & size

Fist off your translation is somewhat different from the one given. I'll assume for the sake of argument yours is more correct.

Re: Sailing, safety, & size

Don't know what I'm talking about? I never made any claims one way or the the other. But I guess your knee jerk mind failed to notice that.

In any case it's possible that certain inherent safety...

Re: Sailing, safety, & size

What would be interesting is if one could compile statistics between the three classes to actually come to some conclusion backed by the evidence. Perhaps boats disabled per distance sailed or...

Re: Sailing, safety, & size

Re: Good GPS/chartplotter under a grand?

I think I remember reading a couple places about the Gamin 740s having a magnetic SD card door that requires you to place it something like three feet from your compass. To me that seems like an...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Hmmmm? Well in my case she's a narrow boat and the ballast is on a bulb down low, so maybe that's a "no". However hauling weight up the mast is not exactly what you would expect either so who knows. ...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

That's very interesting! I read something years ago like that. It's interesting to me now because I'm currently having a boat designed with a lifting keel and I was wondering if would ever be a good...

Question Newb questons about Diesel/Kerosene heaters

Hello, I'm kind of a newb. I've sailed some but nothing extensive. In any case I'm having a small 28' sailboat deigned for me which will hopefully get built next year sometime. The designer asked me...
