Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

Thanks. :)



Obviously to you it has not been. Which is why I wonder why you continue to post here.



Since I've never used the term "gal" I'm sure this isn't directed at me so I'll leave...

Re: New to Site

Welcome to SailNet.

For a beginner, I would suggest anything in the O'Day/Catalina/Venture lines. They all made 22 footers. At least I think O'Day did. A sail club member has a Mariner 19 that he...

Re: Who is divorced because of sailing?

I don't know. Of the sailing couples I'm close to I never asked. It never occurred to me. Knowing how they are together, I can't picture one partner trying to fleece the other like that.

Wait....

Re: Who is divorced because of sailing?

It's interesting how different people approach boat ownership. I'm the one who thinks ahead to the Next Boat. I spent months researching, asking questions, looking for owners who could answer...

She was not. She had an unfortunate incident with identity theft. I think at the time that was the best way the moderators felt to close that user name without losing her posts. She is still here but...

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

It has been a while since I read the book, but it was my understanding that the male skipper/owner of the Westsail had been through several hurricanes already on that boat and knew what the boat was...

Re: Who is divorced because of sailing?

Maybe you could rig something where she has a stationary bike (attached to the deck?) on board that generates power as she cycles. Win win.

Re: Book list link?

Would it be OK to just continue the Recommended Reading thread that First linked to? Another book list will get lost and so many members could benefit.

Re: Business Cards for your boat

I made boat cards and use a gmail account just for the cards. I keep forgetting to carry them and hand them to anyone, however. I think the only cards I have from other boats are people in my marina....

Re: Need help identifying a sailboat!

It might be helpful to see a clear picture of the logo above the 122 (which is the hull number) on the sail.

I'm pretty sure it's not a "cruiser."

I don't. It's not something I've ever thought of and will never do.

Re: First Boat for Me and the Family?

Welcome to SailNet.

The early Venture/MacGregors 22/25 or Catalina 22/25 would probably suit your needs. I think O'Day makes a small trailer sail boat as well. Inexpensive, great first sailboats...

Re: Is the Newport 27' a suitable liveaboard for a small family?

There are no rules about greenhouses in the cockpit and you haven't mentioned how large it would be. You'd want something that won't restrict your ability to keep watch nor turn into a missile when...

Re: Is the Newport 27' a suitable liveaboard for a small family?

OK. I get the fresh is best thing. But your house isn't moving. Your house isn't susceptible to the same always-changing conditions as a boat. I guess I'm thinking about it from a safety perspective.

Re: Is the Newport 27' a suitable liveaboard for a small family?

Why bother with the encumbrance of a greenhouse if you're only going to be away from land for three days at most?

Re: Is the Newport 27' a suitable liveaboard for a small family?

I'm kind of partial towards the C30 for the amount of room you get for a boat that size. There should be plenty of them along the west coast as that's where the company began. Resale should be easy.

Re: help needed in Lancaster PA

It sounds strange to me. Either the seller is up to something or he's physically unable to get to the post office. If the latter, why not just say so? Otherwise it sounds like he's forcing you to go...

Re: Describe your tyical daysail if you would.

That was me. I do the same when it's just me and John. Our boat is two hours from our home. Once we're away from the marina it's not like we can easily turn around for anything we forgot. I like us...
