Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Glad you liked Scotland! Oban on a sunny day, you were truly blessed. It was one of my favorite places to go when I was a Kid. Note to self: My son is the only one in the family who has not been back...

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

Pcp, being an art teacher does not automatically make you lame, you just have to work harder at avoiding it. Sailing's a good start, just don't fly a pirate flag.

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

Who gets this worked up over a novelty flag? Is a pirate flag lame? Yes it is, in a annoyingly juvenile sort of way. Why? Well it's got the whole make believe Peter Pan thing going for it. and...

Re: English Boatyard

How did the Brits come to rule the waves? By building ugly ships, thus fuelling a desire to capture someone else's. Also a grim determination to finish a job once it's started. I could also point out...

Re: Violent attack, Cruisers injured, St Vincent & Grenadines, Union Island

Seems like a one off attack, not a trend. They used what ever weapon they could scrounge up quickly to successfully defend themselves. Nobody died. I don't think firearms could have provided a better...

Re: Picture = 1000 words

Just leave the boat there. Can't think of anything that says hazard better than the mast of a sunken sailboat.

Re: Waterspouts Over Lake Michigan

Was sailing from Beckwith island to Penetang on Georgian Bay Thursday evening heading Southwest. Nasty passage, not really sailing just skidding about the Lake. To make the trip even more...

Re: Limits of Captains authority

Just find the captain/admiral thing childish and annoying. Like the whole pirate motif crap.

Re: Air vent for water tank on cs30

Re: Air vent for water tank on cs30

Well, I was at the boat for a week and had a chance to look into the water tank air vent situation, I'll just put down what I found for future reference. Checked the water tank. Problem is that you...

Re: The danger of GPS as the sole means of navigation.

Re: Air vent for water tank on cs30

It's at the port side of the stern at the top of the hull near the hull/deck joint. It is near the propane locker, but I don't think it's for that. Well I'll be at the boat this weekend and i'll...

Re: Air vent for water tank on cs30

It's a 1985 model so It's unlikely to be at the fill pipe. I'll have to check at the sink this weekend. On a similar note I have three air vent holes on the hull. One for the holding tank, one for...

Great trips, jealous of all the sailing you've been doing. Have not been able to find the wind this year. Last year plenty of wind, this year not so much. It was good to finally meet you and the Mrs....

Re: Need Opinion: Chart plotter, north up or course up?

The hard wiring of the brain is an interesting theory. At least in my case I think it has more to do with visual clues. Going over land with a topo map there are lots of visual clues that you can use...

Re: Need Opinion: Chart plotter, north up or course up?

I started navigating on land with the army as well. I prefer North up when navigating in the boat however, find it easier for some reason. Have no Idea why.
