What is REALLY up at Sailnet?

Not everyone understands the idea of "backordered". This means that the company that you have ordered it from has none in stock, and that the manufacturer is taking it''s sweet time (okay, maybe...

what if !

Everbody had some sort of great ideas (I thought). And KenD - if you''re doing a circumnavigation, why put yourself in the need to winterize at all? Just "go where it''s warm" to kinda quote Jimmy...

Sailing with small children

To reply to Amshan, albeit a little late, but I''ve been moving and offline for a bit.

Oh, piclarke, or, Phil, if I may.

Next time you want to suggest something so crude, might you at least take a moment to refer to Harcourt-Brace so that you at least have some decent grammar and...

Dear ChristineB,

Do not worry, dear. If you had signed on with the screenname Ralph, he would not be as harsh, but would still be rather rude. That''s just him (or her, we don''t really know,...

food.

I am not a nutritionist, by any means, and I do think that the right idea while coastal cruising is to find the "happy hour" with the best free goodies. Buy one beer and you are set for the night,...

comfortable lifevest for wife & mother in law

Leave her ashore.

There are autoinflates that are incoporated into safety harnesses. They are very comfortable and are put on like a vest instead of "wrestled over the head".

Have Sailnet changes been announced?

Thank you so much, Mr. Kirk.

Glad to see that even more business is moving to Charleston, SC. Years ago Madame saw it as the place to be for Beneteau.

Thank you for taking the time to answer...

Well, thanks, Denr. Although I have had some (sailing) in the last few weeks, it''s been on those little bitty thirty footer and less boats around here. Size does matter! The only really lovely...

Sorry, had to respond.
