Re: destin, FL area marinas for 50 foot mast?

We lived in Niceville and kept our boat in the Destin area for several years. Our vhf antenna is just a few inches over 50 ft from the water. At low tide I would rattle it on the Destin Bridge going...

Re: 2014 Sailnet Chesapeake Bay Rendezvous...

Jeff - Count Me and Amy in! It is a very kind offer of you to host. We will miss seeing the northern bay sailors this year but hopefully we will see you all around the bay during the year.

Re: A mistress?

Nothing else for it. I'm sorry to inform you that your wife will have to go. I'm sure you've had a lovely run so far, but some things are just unavoidable. I think it best that this was discovered...

Re: Americas cup triple touch penalty to Kiwi's

My take (and only my limited understanding of these things) is that Oracle managed to overlap Emirates and were to leeward while both were on the same tack making Emirates the give way vessel. WHen...

Re: Safety Notice To Mariners

Good post. A few years ago we had a young Lt. at Hurlburt Field drown on Father's Day while paddling his new kayak while wearing a back pack. Tragic to say the least.

Re: No heat exhaust (air) hosing in engine compartment

Mechanic makes a good point. That said, I have exhaust hose and a blower in mine. I hardly ever turn it on, but occasionally in Florida during very hot days I have switched it on and noted a definite...

Re: My Rough plan to get better at sailing.

It's a wonderful plan. Very similar to what my wife and I did when starting out. I believe you will find that many boat owners have done just this. We belonged to a club that gave us unlimited access...

Re: Sad day

Sad news indeed. Hopefully you'll get a smaller boat to play around on before you go to Destin. Don't dream too big for Destin, the bridge is only 50 feet, a taller rig will give you headaches...

Re: Solomons, MD Marina

Check out the Maritime museum while you're there. Eat at Stoney's, have a cold one at the Tiki Hut, walk the boardwalk and continue around the point, enjoy the island!
