Re: Obama Executive Order Declaring Sailingboats Tax-free

I fell for it...not sure which is worse, the fact that I forgot it was 4/1 or that this seemed so believable from the current administration...either way, I had a chuckle once I realized today's...

re: Embarrassing

I also noticed this on the covers of both magazines...but after Sail's cover (and now Cruising World's), I have to admit...I'm tired of seeing that same red Morris 48GT (it's a beautiful boat, by the...

Re: Is NSA a bad thing?

I sail in the FL panhandle and do not have any negative things to say about any of these law enforcement entities, nor have I ever been stopped. FWC is moored in my marina and there is coast guard...

Re: Charter in Tampa, St Pete, Ft Meyers, Marco?

Have you check Sailing Florida out of St. Pete? I have chartered with them several times and have always been happy. They seem to have pretty new boats that are in good condition...and I've always...

Re: Best of these Florida cities for sailing

While St. Pete is the only location of the three you've mentioned that I've sailed in, as a Florida resident my vote would be for St. Pete/Sarasota on the west coast of FL. From St. Pete you can get...

Re: Best inflatable pfd with harness.

I have one from West Marine...red inflatable with harness. I have been happy with it. I think it's around $200...but they go on sail now and then. One reason I decided on that one was the ability...

Re: Liveaborders that never leave the slip? I don't get it. Help!

Nothing really...I do not know if our marina has a sign-out policy...it wasn't mentioned when I was told about them renting our slip if we are out. Our trips are usually only one night out and then...

Re: Liveaborders that never leave the slip? I don't get it. Help!

I don't mean to intrude upon your discussion here...but I've encountered the same thing with my marina. A couple of years ago we were gone for only a few days to return and find that it was quite...

Re: Effective remedies for the no-see-ems

We have no-see-ums up here in the FL panhandle as well. I generally use OFF I believe (orange/white bottle)...but a lot of the folks where we keep our boat swear by using Avon Skin So Soft.

Re: small boat BVI

ericf - I don't think there would be much difference between a 29' and 31-32'...if you can find one less than 30'. In terms of sleeping at night...that most likely won't be an issue as you will pick...

Re: small boat BVI

If I recall correctly, Sunsail had boats down to 31', and I recall seeing other boats from other companies in the 31-32 foot range...maybe BVI Yacht Charters? Conch and some of the other charter...

Re: How far can we get?

Are you able to spend the night before aboard the boat? If so, could you do the briefing the night before? That would enable you to get an earlier start the next day...

Re: How far can we get?

Have you sailed in this area before? Or chartered with this company before? You mention that you've already anchored in the Manatee river at Desoto Point, so I'm guessing you have. I think that...

Re: How far can we get?

I've chartered from the Vinoy on numerous occasions in the past. Anclote Key (and that area) is to ambitious for a three day weekend in my opinion. Sailing down Tampa bay and then all the way up...

Re: Wing keel in a shallow slip

Re: Wing keel in a shallow slip

I have a Catalina 28 with a wing keel, so the rudder situation is similar, only slightly less depth than the keel. In the winter, when tides can run quite low, there are a few times we sit on the...

Re: Light air/Downwind sail choices

I second the asym on a furler...while I don't have one (or have experience with one), that is what I would get if purchasing a downwind sail for a bowsprit.
