Re: Do you play music whilst sailing?

We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Ere the bonnie boat was won as we sailed into the mystic
Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and...

Re: Bristol 26 going to California.

Dude, spending on your boat is like spending on your woman. The return on such spending is very unpredictable, but if you can afford it, why the heck not go all out?

Re: Stone Horse Launching

Launching such boats from a trailer is nothing compared to loading them back. Guide poles on your trailer will help a little. Ramp has to be steep, long, and EVEN (smooth and not tilted). I would not...

Re: Lake sailors?

I do 95% of my sailing on local lakes. Here in NC you can sail on them year round. Best sailing season is in spring and fall, when there is a lot of relatively steady wind. Since all my boats are on...

Re: U.S. Navy Creates Hydrocarbon Fuel From Seawater

Hydrogen is not exactly safe to work with. US Navy could save a lot of fuel if they stopped cruising all over the world for no good reason.

Re: What's the right thing to do?

What is the 'right' thing to do depends on your sense of right and wrong. I would pay for the repair not because I have to, or because I feel obligated, but because somebody in distress asked me for...

Re: Snappy or otherwise Comebacks

I'm not sure that I would respond with some clever comeback line, as for a lot of people it is a natural concern. I would just politely say that "I plan to avoid areas where pirates are known to...

Re: plastic boat repair

These are most likely Polyethylene hulls and they are not at all easy to repair with regular fiberglass (even when using fabric) or any 'plastic weld' products.

Re: female sailor needs help learning to sail a bigger boat , sailor he

Since I live far away from Florida I can't help you directly, but maybe you can start by telling us what kind of boat do you have and where do you keep it. Just be a little patient because sailors...

Re: Sailing Dog's Boat Destroyed By Fire

Oh man... that is awful... :(
But at least you are alive, unharmed. It could have happened while you were asleep and that would have been so much worse.
You will get another boat and sail again....

Re: Right Sailboat for Severn River??

How much money can you spend? Do you have a dock access? What is the depth at the dock? How much sailing experience you have?
Intuitively I would start with a solid smaller boat (less money...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Having raised 3 kids in a very natural way (as few doctor's visits as possible), I see nothing wrong with taking kids for long offshore trips. Most of the time kids get sick from other people. I hope...

Re: Right shape for the ultimate self-righting boat

I think in a boat (even a lifeboat) it is far more important to PREVENT the roll in the first place, then to recover from it. How long will you survive inside a boat that keeps rolling over every...

Hallucinations happen not just out of lack of sleep. Being alone for a long time is enough for a lot of folks to have them. Sometimes these hallucinations are important warnings for us. You need to...

Re: Sailboat went off course into Algeria

Algeria is one of the safer places on that part of Mediterranean coast. No need to panic. And if their boat was not flying the US flag, I would not worry much.
