Re: ASA 101 Prep?

Re: Sabre 28/30 for a newer sailor?

Re: Stuffing Box Drip Run to Bilge?

A little over three years ago I had a PSS Dripless shaft seal installed and so far I couldn't be happier. Haven't had a drip since...another option if you're not a fan of the dripping/pooling...

Re: Anchoring Etiquette?

How big was this cove? Could you have anchored where his boat wouldn't have interfered with yours? 4 boat lengths (100 feet?) sounds kind of close for only two boats in a cove, but without knowing...

Re: Our West Marine Debacle

Re: Our West Marine Debacle

I'm not accusing anyone of fraud...you or WM. All I'm saying is that when you found out it didn't have what you wanted, why not simply return it? Now, if WM refused to accept it as a return and you...

Re: Our West Marine Debacle

Kind of agree...once you realized it didn't have Wi-Fi and that the price of the Wi-Fi version was $2300 or so...why not return it and look for the best price for the one with Wi-Fi? Was returning...

Re: 1996 Catalina 28 Tall Rig Mast

I second (third, fourth???) the suggestion to follow-up with Catalina...I'm surprised that they have been less helpful. I have always had great support from Catalina. While I'm not sure how they...

Re: This PFD could have killed me!

While this was certainly a tragedy, I am quite surprised at the negative comments directed towards the boat that posted the youtube video. While I've only seen clips on the news, I've been able to...

Re: Florida is at it again

If I'm not mistaken, a companion bill in the house (presumably the one already in existence) would need to be merged with the Senate bill to form one bill...and that one bill would then be voted on...
