90% of stuff is done online, from shopping to banking to communicating with friends, and if you don't have that, you will spend...

Re: need a good opinion

I read the OP as "...6 feet shorter..."

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

While I can't really take Capt. Rob Lee seriously, "Arrrrrgggh!", I think his core message is fundamentally correct. In fact I've been thinking about writing a book exploring how society's myths and...

I purchased Fujinon M22 7x50...

Good for her ;)

We are surrounded by seductions. It's how our consumer-driven economies work. Advertising does work. More insidious though is the whole "keeping up with the Jones" pressure that we...

My boat partner and I looked into getting Dux rigging for our Ericson 27 a few years ago. We looked really long and hard at it in fact, for all the reasons stated in this thread (the DIY aspect was...

Re: Head dumps directly into sea?

There are at least three categories of approach here: science, law, and politics. They are only mildly interrelated.
