Re: Docking Disaster

That's pretty much how it started out and everything would have been just hunky dory had I realized the transmission was in forward rather than reverse. I was CERTAIN that I had it in reverse as we...

Re: Scary night sail

Re: Fear of heeling

The question was "CAN it sink?" not "WILL it sink?" Yes it can. No it won't. Assuming, that is, I don't do something incredibly stupid or we don't have a piece of very bad luck. Getting run over by...

Re: Hello from Lake Superior

Have any of you Lake Superior guys ever run into a Shannon 28 up your way? We sold Mary Flower to a man who was taking it up there in 1995 and lost track of him. We've often wondered how he made...

Re: Fear of heeling

We once took a new-to-sailing friend out for a day sail on Lake Michigan. It was a great day; wind 15-20 blowing offshore so the waves were only about 2 feet. I avoided sailing close to the wind so...

Re: Shannon 28 versus Caliber 33

We sailed a Shannon 28 for fifteen years on the Great Lakes and got caught out in our share of stinky weather. We experienced winds as high as 35 knots true, gusting to who knows what and seas up to...
