Re: N00B Q? Jib sheets and forestay

Technically i think 135 is a genoa? And this from a newb!

I regularly see boats on yachtworld with 3-400 watts solar and a wind genny with...

Re: How do you store excess energy?

I suppose that a better way of thinking would be, do people plan excess generating capacity as part of their on board systems? If i was calculating my consumption to generation ratios, i think I...

How do you store excess energy?

So I was thinking... Do boaters who generate power from renewables like wind, towed hydro, solar etc... have systems on board to store excess generated energy?

For example.

In this circumstance, the delivery captain had alternatives, The ICW, staying in port, heaving to. Eitherway, any business dependent on weather for delivery schedule, will have a clause in the...

Re: Sailboat perishes off Hatteras, USCG rescues crew

Exemptions could always be built in for acts of god. Striking a whale that rips off your keel for example. But weather is, by and large now, a quantifiable and predictable thing. And therefore the...

Re: Sailboat perishes off Hatteras, USCG rescues crew

Here's a question that I'm sure I'll get abuse for.

If I am engaged in a potentially dangerous, commercial venture, should I, or my insurance be expected to foot the rescue bill if it all goes...

Re: Tips on Watch Standing

Re: Sailboat perishes off Hatteras, USCG rescues crew
