Re: Heading South?

For some it's an insurance constraint. Some insurance companies want their insured boats to stay above or below a certain latitude until hurricane season is (on paper) over. For some others, the...

Re: Production buckets and the limits

Um, the topic is buckets. It's not considered good form to hijack a thread. Should you wish to discuss blue water cows, I respectfully suggest that you start a thread on Cruisers Forum.

Re: Production buckets and the limits

Why is this thread in Cruising and Liveaboard? Us weekenders use buckets, too. Just because we don't have rough water or blue water buckets doesn't mean we're any less...er...less.

Re: Dear Annapolis...

Which reminds me. Saturday we never did find that church parking lot you recommended, but we did find a garage for $5 within easy walking distance. :)

Re: Cocktails with Jimmy

Jimmy Cornell had some fascinating stories of his adventures and he's a very charismatic speaker. John and I really enjoyed this event and to anyone who has the chance we recommend hearing him speak.

Re: Annoying Halyard Slap

I guess I meant that it's not like a regular marina. There won't be people sleeping on boats nearby. The only boats there are other race boats.

I'm not trying to excuse it, just offering up a...

Re: Protocol for entering new marinas.

Every marina is different. That's the only constant that you'll have. You can certainly take a chance and not make reservations but you're taking a chance that they have no slips available. Holiday...

Re: Annoying Halyard Slap

Re: Annapolis Sailboat Show

Also I find that most people leave their weather skills on the boat. Pay attention to the forecast and possible fronts coming through. If you time it right, you can...

Sounds like you are sweet on the Catalina. Don't let your heart overrule good sense when it comes to negotiating a price.

Re: New Member with Boat Buying Questions

Having recently gone through a repower (old 30+ YO diesel to new diesel), I heartily, overwhelmingly, agree with James. Either buy a boat with a gas engine like the Atomic 4, which from what I...

Re: im sure the odds of finding a women to date on here is, 1 ina mill

That's the way it happened with me. I stopped looking and BOOM.
