You haven't lived until you attack 1000 gallons of burning jet fuel with a 1 inch water line. 😀

Re: What NOT to do with an Oil Fire

A dry towel would likely catch fire as well. Much better to wet it.

Re: Waterway Guide Beats Active Captain

AC is fun to play with, enter some info and get a discount at Defender but for me any internet based app is a waste of time once I round Caines Head.....there ain't no 'net in my criusing grounds.

Re: How much wind to knock down a Tartan 30

I'm working through this with my wife as well. I bought a heavier, more sea kindly boat which helped immensely. Reefing is your friend, the heel eases and many times the boat is faster and sails...

Re: using the palm of your hand on a winch

Yes and yes. I also warn that the loaded lines on a boat can seriously hurt you and I closely supervise inexperienced sailors.

Re: Heaving To with the 37

I wondered if main alone would have worked better. It was first sail of the season so we didn't spend much time on study and just went and played.

I haven't practiced this enough. Yesterday we tried it but I'm not sure if we got the optimum result.

Re: Best way to make fenders easy to use...

Round turn and half-hitches 😃

I tie to lifeline since I don't have a toe rail, and just outside the harbor is busy with a bit of lumpy seas normally, better things to do than futz with fenders....

Re: Storm trysail for PS37/Crealock 37

I have a trysail for my 37. I don't know the dimensions off hand but I'm heading to the boat tomorrow for 10 days. I've never used it so I need to figure out sheeting and should be able to get...

Re: Life Jackets

No offense taken. I wore a parachute when flying airplanes. Never had to use the parachute, don't expect to need the PFD.

Re: Life Jackets

The brochure that Takefive linked to has some info I hadn't heard before:

Re: Favorite Bosun Chair

I decided to stay with the bosun chair I have. I also have a mast climbing harness that I wear while in the chair (belt and suspenders kind of thing). I've used the harness alone and it isn't...

Re: Life Jackets

Re: Where do you store your gas can?

Is that locker vented overboard?

I keep gasoline containers in the propane locker which is segregated from the bilge and cabin and has vents/drainholes overboard in case of a spill.

Re: Drone for sailing video

The Phantom II can do about 20-25mph so should be able to keep up. I plan to do some aerials of the boat this season. I anticipate it's going to be a bit tricky launching and recovering while...
