Re: Rudder Failures

I've experienced one steering failure on a Little Harbor when a sheave broke loose from a bulkhead. Luckily this was near shore on a windy day, so the struggle with the emergency tiller (what a...

Re: Don't be so hard on the new guys

Nearly 30 years ago, when we started sailing bigger boats, we had days just like you described. They happen less often now, but they still happen.

Good for you, you are out there doing it, and...

Re: Climbing into boat on a Mooring

On one of our past boats, the previous owner built a wood step, padded on the boat side with 4 wires in the corners and carabiners to attach to the toe rail. It would hang over the side and lie...

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!


If you decide to leave it someplace for a week or 2, suggest you don't in my neighborhood. Our summer mooring prices and dock prices are crazy high. Too much demand, they all fill up.

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Nice plan. My advice is mostly about my neighborhood. I've done the trip back you've described on a delivery, but we didn't stop.

For the trip up I agree an EPIRB and raft cannot hurt. ...

Re: What Vessel Was This In?

This reminds me of something a buddy said to be while his boat was being delivered by hired crew.

"Nothing goes to windward like a 747"

Re: 1st post... Thoughts on Purchase ***Help***

The biggest boat we owned was a 52 for 10 years.

I don't know Irwins, but I know a little about older bigger sailboats. You could easily spend $200K+ getting a "reasonably well found" boat of...

Re: Mooring ball slap damaging my awlgrip topside ?

Maine's advice is right on the money as usual.

One other thought, when cruising you sometimes end up on a nasty barnacle encrusted mooring with the pennant attached through a shackle on the top. ...

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Herreshoff called fiberglass frozen snot, so my guess is he's rolling his eyes at most of us!

It actually doesn't look that bad (or lets just say I've owned boats that were worse when I...

Re: St. Lucia to Grenada Charter review

Sounds like a great trip. We were down there on the Moorings almost at the same time, Rodney Bay to Grenada. It's been 6 trips for me down there, we obviously like it. Here's some additional...

Re: Charter area advice - Belize or ??

Chartered there once, probably about 10 years ago so consider that when evaluating the quality of this advice.

It's shallow, agree with zephyr, we chartered a cat. Lots of time in 10 feet, had...

Re: Alternative to Solar

Max, good luck with your project.

You'll find if you search around that many cruisers are using 50 to 200 or more Amp hours per day particularly if they have DC refrigeration (lots of variation...

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

We've chartered them, never owned one so take this with a grain of sea salt. Also, I'm assuming you mean typical cruising cats, not beach cats, etc.

Good: Lots of room. 2 couples, each get...

Re: Headset intercom vox

The problem with this thread is, some of us just want to have an argument. I think it's because of the bad weather, and severe sailing withdrawal syndrome.

After further consideration, let me...

Re: New to using a slip

Good idea to have a second set of lines if you leave your lines on the dock, just incase you don't make it home:)

At the home dock, we take 2, leave 2. I take the stern and spring line lead aft...

Re: Jeanneau 45DS Leak Problem

I assume we are talking about deck leaks, etc (not below water line leaks).

The problem with these leaks is they show up in the boat someplace, but they inevitably are getting in someplace else. ...

Re: Lightening hit ??


I'm suspecting the breakers. If it was just the pump, I'd start with the pressure sensor in the pump as having failed, but since other stuff isn't working also, I'm going with the panel. ...

Re: Can I make this trip as a novice

Every boat I've bought had problems at purchase. This includes new and used. I'd suggest whatever you do, take at least one day and sail it locally at your departure point. Try the motor for a...
