Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Okay - so another nitpicky detail. As you can see in the following diagram (which needs to be updated since I've added the new batteries and the new shunt) - I have 2 "system" negatives running out...

Yeaaahhhh no.

Are you honestly equating a regatta lasting a few hours in a bay where you're never more than 4 or 5 miles from land with a ~1500 mile offshore rally spanning a couple of weeks?...

Okay - I'm working on the LinkPro wiring and have a question. As you can see, the diagram has the "System Ground" coming directly into the shunt - then the negatives for the batteries coming from...

Yeah, you'd hate to have the fact that you RebelHearted on your Sailing CV.

Re: Those new fangled Mantus Anchors..Bought One...Why

Oh please. Like bent shanks, or inferior steel?

Dude, you're really stretching here. Why do you have such a thing for Mantus? It's a freakin' great anchor at a great price with great customer...

Re: Those new fangled Mantus Anchors..Bought One...Why

I bought their anchor. I'm not affiliated with them in any way.

I know they are really good people. And they have one of the best anchors out there. It's awesome. And they back it up.

Buy what...

Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

I have his book and like his socket and fast pin solution. But I can't find those parts. Do you know who to go to to order them?

Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

I'm actually looking into the same thing Med. It's the ability to lock/unlock from the inside AND outside - while keeping everything water-tight - that makes it tricky. Here is my setup:

Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

Yes - at that point there were over 100 boats in danger of exactly the same thing. That's the point. Your call would simply be noise - unless the boat was actually knocked down and sinking - or MOB -...

Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

I've highlighted the most important word in your thought there. They want YOU to contact them if YOU think YOU'RE in trouble.

Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

Trying to power-hold position bow-in to 60 knots is pretty dicey in my opinion. If you get off just a bit - you're going around, and taking what comes. That's just physics.


Personally, I'll run...

Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

How do you know they didn't call the CG?

This has nothing to do with political correctness - it's just that you shouldn't accuse people of pretty egregious stuff before you know the facts. There...

Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

I understand. But you're assuming they could stop. Again, you guys don't know. So you really shouldn't make accusations.

I think you/they are making some big assumptions there. How do you know the intentions of the other boat's skipper/crew?

Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

The reporter also says that boat "nearly capsize[d]". Is that what you see in that video? The reporter also says the fate of that boat and crew after this encounter was unknown, yet it's been said...

Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

Sorry. I don't agree. What boat exactly is "adequate for such conditions"?

The problem was they had too much sail up in huge winds. Even your Alberg is not "adequate" for that particular...

Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

I definitely agree with you on marking the position. But I have a hard time seeing the correlation between this incident and the LSC incident. The LSC was rolled and taken in by a wave. The weather...
