Re: VHF Protocol

It's silly, but only to those who think it unnecessary to have written, visible, positive ID somewhere on the hull of your boat - BEFORE keying up # 16 summoning help...

Re: VHF Protocol

For every "one" you can find without visible markings, I can find 100 with :)

With or without visible markings, which ones do you think will be "found" first?

Re: VHF Protocol

If I'm keying up on 16, it's for one helluva good reason. I need the CG to get to me ASAP. The easier I make their job to find me, the better the rescue will go.

Unless your hull is chartreuse...

Re: VHF Protocol

Of note, all the boats pictured are over 30+ feet.

Also of note, not one of them has ANY name on the hull.

This means they represent less than 6% all boats on the water.

Maine crabs are...

Re: VHF Protocol

Again, how many people here, have boats that do not have state assigned numbers?

Then too, the shear numbers of boats, by size, would likely result in there being a thousand boats under 30-feet...

Re: VHF Protocol

I was speaking of my experience and observations, using Lake Champlain, as just one illustration, to make my point.. BTW, Lake Champlain is international water.

Part of the lake is in Canada and...

Re: VHF Protocol

No apples and oranges here. Just stating known observations.

Been sailing for 50 years and can count the number of vessels with no state required bow alpha-numerics - on one hand.

True, I've...

Re: VHF Protocol

I sail the 100+ mile long Lake Champlain. Other than the state registration bow #, 50% of the boats I see have no vessel name affixed and of those 50%, the font is so stylized, even at 50 yards -...

Question Heads ?

When we bought our C-22 last November, it had a 5-gallon pail with a plastic seat and lid that snapped on as a wannabe head. A plastic kitchen sized garbage can liner does the "holding."

It was...

Re: Lake Champlain - anyone?

Sal wish I could help! I've never sailed Champlain either. Commencing this spring, I hope to be there every summer from now on :)

I'm still working on the boat and may be ready by May 1.

Question Lake Champlain - anyone?

Now that I own a 1976 C-22 and live near Lake Champlain (VT) - I'm puzzled by how many C-22's I've seen on the Lake, but none of those owners seem interested in getting a C-22 chapter sailing club...

Re: Lake Champlain - greetings!

Camp of the Woods? I had my first job there as a musician back in 1960!

Small world.

I never had the time or money for a sailboat. My two brothers-in-law owned 19' Lightning's, and now 30+...

Smile Lake Champlain - greetings!

I've been sailing for 50 years but just bought my first boat (second, if you count an old Barnegat Bay Sneak Box I restored before selling it) - and it's a 1976 Catalina 22, hull # 6105.

Lots of...
