Re: Stern Tie line recommendations for mini-cruiser

Oh yeah you're perfect. Don't forget that none times out of ten there's not much wind so you're either lazily drifting in circles, or being pushed in a direction from the tide. But it's not...

Re: Stern Tie line recommendations for mini-cruiser

Not to get argumentative, you're advice is some of the best in gear and maintenance, but you quoted me, then said you found canada to be the opposite of what I described, then described the anchoring...

Re: Stern Tie line recommendations for mini-cruiser

My favorite thing about anchoring in Canada was that I found the opposite.

Re: Stern Tie line recommendations for mini-cruiser

Re: Stern Tie line recommendations for mini-cruiser
