Re: Is the Newport 27' a suitable liveaboard for a small family?

Buy the boat you are going to use in the present. A Newport 27 might be perfect for your needs.

Re: My teenage design efforts

I don't get over to your blog often enough. It's always a great read.

Re: Looking to purchase a hunter - First sailboat

I chartered a 29.5 in Thailand. Very roomy and comfortable layout. I would not call it forgiving. The fractional rig does help but learn to reef the main in all kinds of conditions.

Re: Picking up a mooring single handed

I have a pick stick, even in adverse conditions it seems to work well.

Even in heavy air I motor up to the pick up stick, then walk forward and grab it.

So far it all seems easy, until it comes time for them to supply a surveyor. My boat is just over 25 yrs old and the last survey was 3 years ago. According to their own rules someone should be...

Anchoring under sail

As someone else pointed out, try leaving the mainsheet loose as you coast to a stop to drop the hook.

Daytime anchor ball
