Re: Dental and medical care while cruising.

I didn't have DAN insurance on my last foreign cruise, but I'll have it the next time.

Re: Dental and medical care while cruising.

Airlift insurance can be handy. When we were in George Town Bahamas, winter of 2010, there was a kid who in a cruising boat who had an appendicitis attack. Luckily there was a cruising ER doctor...

Re: .25 gal/hr. Really???

To give you an idea of how much gasoline an outboard can use. I bought my Cal 25 in Annapolis from someone one the South River one spring day and had to bring it back to the Severn River to Chase...

Re: Worst Sailboats Ever!

Junk?

Everything Hinkley every made. I've never owned one, or even been on one, but they are all junk. Even the ones that are 30 years old and sell for more than they did when brand new.

Re: .25 gal/hr. Really???

I agree. I had a Yanmar 1Gm in my 1982 Cape Dory 25D. It used so little fuel it was actually hard to calculate the usage unless you went long distances.

I can remember going from Pascagoula, MS...

Re: Keys Weekend Getaway Suggestions?

Can you get a 5.1 draft into Largo Sound at Pennekamp? Last time I was down that way, I decided I probably couldn't.

Re: coastal/offshore jacket

I'm a Helly Hansen fan, too. I still wear an HH jacket (Helly Tech 3) for sailing that I bought in 2002. And, that even includes digging it out of Katrina mud in my house, where it sat for six...

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

Hey, it's not just boats. I think a lot of us have gone through the bigger is not necessarily better experience with houses, as well. :)

Re: your thoughts for a new sailor

That's probably a better idea. I have a 42 foot boat now. My previous sailboats were two 25 footers, and a 32 footer. I've also owned, one 32 foot powerboat and two 22 foot powerboats.

I think...

Re: Lets talk about dinghies y'all

My dinghy is unsinkable, so at least I have that going for me. :D

Re: Lets talk about dinghies y'all

Sometimes, when I think about how cheap it is to operate and maintain, my dinghy is my most favorite boat I own. :D

Anybody here, think for one second, that any Florida legislator or politician, would have any thoughts whatsoever, about boats and anchoring, one way or the other, without some deep pocket campaign...

Re: Manson Supreme

For me, Manson Supremes may not be perfect, but they'll do until perfect comes along.

Re: Rallies Gone Wrong

I don't see how you can blame Rally's for what the people in them do.

I was cruising in the Bahamas when Rule 62 was lost. I can certainly understand why the people running that rally, didn't...

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

Quoted for the pure accuracy of this statement. How did we get off the track so badly in this country? When it comes to investments, and where to put your money, the best rate of return is always...

Re: Manson Supreme

I love my Manson Supreme (45 lb model on a 42 foot boat, with 160 feet of 5/16s chain). It is without a doubt, the best holding anchor I have ever owned. It's the one anchor I've never had drag on...

Re: Bahamas

We have to keep in mind that SLOSH is brand new and there are going to be a lot of tweaks to the formulas. I live in Hurricane Alley (northern gulf coast), and it is amazing how different the surges...

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

I agree, its not really a fair deduction (or subsidy). (But, the US tax code is rife with this type of thing, the big reason I support a flat tax or national sales tax, as a replacement. And, the...

Re: Southeast Florida Coastal Cruising Q's

Five feet or less draft, and mast height of 55 feet or less (Julia Tuttle Causeway). Unless you want to always go outside between Port Everglades and Government Cut. :)

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

I agree. I have a Catalina now and I have no complaints about the way it is designed, or built. It has taken me everywhere I wanted it to (down to the Bahamas and back). If a Chevrolet is all you...
