Re: Whats your best bit of kit??

Nearly the same. I have a 120v 1/2" Milwaukee Right Angle Drill and a winch bit. It's a joy to turn on the inverter and raise the sails with it. Massive torque and I never need to worry if the...

Re: what do you do for a living?

I think the sailboat has right of way in all instances over the seaplane. I frequently operate sailboats under sail and power in and around seaplanes taking off, landing and taxiing. If I see them...

Re: Head dumps directly into sea?

Re: Can We Bareboat Charter in BVI's?

Working for a local charter company we go a little bit further. We encourage our charter guests to get connected to the ball and then put the vessel in reverse and really pull on it. Doing so helps...

Re: Sailing school reviews

Depending on the vessel and what one is paying to be on it, if it is advertised with gen and AC then it is not unreasonable to expect it to run sometimes. If you've spent any time in the aft cabin...
