Re: Crew Wanted - Southport, NC Daysailing

You didn't call.
I'll be going out today on my own boat, I find the captain a little more reliable there.

Re: Buying a Cruiser

Funny to think that worry would set in at the 99 mile mark. I'm most scared from the slip to the last channel marker.

Re: Do I Need an EPIRB?

Re: Crew, Captain and Owner Feedback

WTG rockdawg, I tried to pay my son to write a recommendation that was half as good as the one you just got, he said "dad, you can't afford it".

Re: Captain Wanted - Short Delivery Apr 13

He specified wanting an outside passage.....I had this kind of confidence when I was young. Now, I understand big ocean, little boat and the ocean doesn't care that I want to live.

Re: Captain Wanted - Short Delivery Apr 13

The trip is in April, it should be warm enough, but the water will still be cold. I was cold once....Korea 1978.

Re: Captain Wanted - Short Delivery Apr 13

To be real honest with you, I don't think your boat has the needed equipment for the trip. There is no mention of navigation equipment, no sign of dingy or life raft, and I know there aren't exposure...

Re: Boy killed by lightning in our anchorage, what would you do?

Lightning kills as it passes thru critical tissue, ie the heart and vital organs, fortunately because of its high frequency it is more likely to flash over the body, verses entering and exiting. Many...

Re: Navigating locks

Look closely at the lock before you enter, choose the side that offers the best protection for your hull. Have long lines available so that they can be looped over the locks cleats. That way you can...

Re: Essential knots?

A bowline and a square will get you through most any situation. The bowline can be untied where the square will tighten up to the point where it must be cut. To avoid looking like an idiot, make sure...

Re: Need one hand willing to work for travel from Northeast to Southwest

I like adventure....but you may get more than you have bargained for. And that's what this is about, "the bargain". It won't be a bargain if you find at any point in the trip that the boat is not up...
