Re: high wind gybing technique??

Yep it's a Chicken Jibe. And in really high winds is the by far the safest way to jibe. Head up into the wind, through irons, and continue on to your desired heading. If you boat already has...

Re: First time out in my Lido 14

We actually did use the jib more often than not. The first photo and me and my buddy was the first time we took the boat out after our turtle and we didn't want to repeat the swim. These just...

First time out in my Lido 14

Hello! This last week I got to sail my Lido 14 for the first time. We drug the boat up to our cabin on Placid Lake Montana and had a fun week of sailing on a high mountain lake.

Re: What is the best beginner sailing book ?

Like the guy above I'll recommend "Sailing for dummies". It's a good purchase or your local library should have it. Here are some of my other favorites:

"The Annapolis Book of Seamanship" - The...

Re: Modern day blue water sailboat?

Wow! This turned into quite the discussion. Mostly I wanted to see if there were any major improvements to hull design and rudder/keel shape/weighting. (Just for my own personal curiosity) Not only...

Modern day blue water sailboat?

What sailboats being produced today are blue water sailable? I just want to take a peek at the design differences from older boats to the new modern ones. Preferably in the 25-30 foot range. Thank...

Re: Need Rigging Advice

Yep on both my Halyards that is how I attached the line. On a small boat like ours there isn't a huge amount of tension on the halyard. Although in the pictures it looks like they are using it to...

Re: Need Rigging Advice

Braided is best for running rigging. It's the lowest stretch, won't kink as much, and is much stronger for the same size. That being said if you opted for 3 strand it would probably work just...

Re: Problem with Spot Satellite Personal Tracker

Gary, again can you tell me what the problem is here? The Spot is not designed to be used as a GPS. It's not meant to be used as a chartplotter. It's meant to show your family where you are on a...

Re: Problem with Spot Satellite Personal Tracker

So if you saw 25.95861 -80.12759 you would think that you could just plot that? It looks nothing like the required 25° 57' 30.996" -80° 7' 39.3234"????

Re: Problem with Spot Satellite Personal Tracker

I guess I don't understand why you are throwing such a fuss about what kind of data it is transmitting? When you hit that SOS button it goes to the SPOT commander center and it gets routed to the...

Re: The future of the sailing world. Why are there so few young people cruising??

I can tell you my take on it. I'm a 29 year old male for reference. I just purchased my first sailboat about 3 months ago. Honestly I was just never exposed to it. My parents never sailed, my...

Re: Interior Paint? (Lido 14)

So I checked out the Polomyx airless but it says that it is not to be used in wet areas. Have you used this product with success in a dighy style boat that is constantly going to be wet on the...

Re: Upside down boat stand (Or side stand)

And I agree I do want to take it out sailing, but...
