Re: How many things can go wrong in 4 hours

This guy is failing the common sense test.

Re: Dinghy logic

Mini,

I've got 2 dingy's. One is a Novarania hard bottom left over from when I had the LH about your size. It's 15 years old, and still going strong....unreal.

But, since I couldn't even on...

Re: Getting Used To New Boat

Re: Arduino / Raspberry Pi based instrumentation?

I've built some simple things out of Arduino. Looks like from a brief search the Raspberry Pi system doesn't have an on board A/D converter, but people have built them and there maybe some kits.

Re: Negotiating new boat purchase

This depends I think. If you are dealing with a "production" builder that's putting out "volume" I'll bet you can negotiate quite a bit.

If you're dealing with a low volume, semi-custom shop,...

Re: Arthur

Jon's story is really good, thanks for posting.

As a local, I thought Minni's idea about Hadley's was great, but to be honest, I also thought that Tashmoo would work. The issue with Hadley's is...

Re: Arthur

Prepped with extra lines on the North side of the dock and a little canvas reduction. Moved my neighbor out to a mooring. Pretty much no one did anything to prep except for me and my neighbor. ...

Re: Don't be so hard on the new guys

Nearly 30 years ago, when we started sailing bigger boats, we had days just like you described. They happen less often now, but they still happen.

Good for you, you are out there doing it, and...

Re: Arthur

Isn't conventional wisdom that after a cold winter that was MISERABLE up here, that the hurricanes would stay away..the water's too cold.

Let's hope this Arthur fizzles out. Some of the...

Re: Climbing into boat on a Mooring

On one of our past boats, the previous owner built a wood step, padded on the boat side with 4 wires in the corners and carabiners to attach to the toe rail. It would hang over the side and lie...

Re: Honda 2.3 for 9"6" inflatable?

Re: How much of your storage is devoted to tools and parts?

More than I'd like to admit.

Re: Add Sta-bil to gas or not?

Minne

I'm getting really good with carburetor cleaner. Seems like if the dingy sits for more than a couple or 3 weeks unused, it runs poorly. Take it apart, clean the jets, and it runs great....

Re: MedSailor's New Ride! (maybe I am a power-boater after all...)

Med,

That thing looks darn comfy! Best of luck and enjoy. You are the only person I know (and I know some people with some pretty big boats, power and sail) that has a sauna!

Excellent!

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Chef
