Re: Groton CT to Branford CT

Any new to you boat will have unexpected problems, no matter how good a survey you had. I'd daysail it a few times locally, before I took the trip, even though it's a short one. Make sure the...

Re: Waterfront Market

I agree with you guys. There was someone in Boothbay or Camden doing this we used (cannot recall, old age). They would fetch provisions from a list, get laundry done, deliver wine, etc. It was...

Re: Old survey to new surveyor?

Actually, seriously, I agree with this. Soothsayers aside.

And as far as it only being 20 feet Denise, it's a Flicka....it's 20 feet that offshore ready if it's sound. I'd definitely survey it,...

Re: Old survey to new surveyor?

Reminds me of a visit in my youth to one of our friends favorite fortune tellers. She said, don't tell her anything, she's amazing. To this day, I accuse her of giving the soothsayer a pile of our...

Re: Too big a fish fishing off our boats?

No worries, my sailboat won't back down on a fish like that, and the 100lbs test mono on the hand line cleated to a stern cleat would probably break early on. Need one of those big Penn reels with...

Re: Old survey to new surveyor?

Yea, I'd give it to him. If he's a good surveyor he'll take pride in finding something the other guy missed. And unless you give him a digital, editable, copy, he'll likely be started from his...

Just touch the 2 wires, correct polarity of course, and un touch them if you see smoke or the wires get hot:D

Re: Dead engine hour meter

Med,

Suggest you connect the meter directly to the battery and see if it turns. If it does, then we need to dig into how you wired it. It somehow needs 12 volts across it to turn (one side + ,...

Re: Safety considerations for Great Lakes solo sailor

I'm worried the OP will end up too far down on his lines to go sailing if he brings too much stuff;)

Just a few things need to work to be safe. You don't want to sink, the keel and rudder needs...

Re: Windlass foot switch alternatives?

Actually, the only failing in the on position I've ever heard of has been associated with foot switches shorting. We've got them on the sailboat. Our thinking is the breaker is off until we're...

Re: My New MOB Procedure

This is an interesting thread. I've seen adds recently for AIS PLB's. In principle, this seems like a reasonable idea. If you're boat has an AIS receiver and a chart plotter, why not use it to...

Falling off, single handed, or even with crew asleep below, autopilot on, and watching the boat sail away. That thought is certainly a nightmare many of us have had, luckily so far only in a bad...

Google walnut shell non-skid. My favorite builder uses it, and it's nice non-skid and has held up 6 years so far.

Re: How did you get your spouse to embrace the cruising life?

Reading this thread I realize how lucky I am.

My wife owned a sailboat before we were married. We've since owned 5 different boats together.

So I guess I married into it:D

Enough said.

Re: Easy Access

To get this, we had to have it built semi-custom and pay close attention to the details. We agree, it's only a priority after you've owned and fixed a few boats. Like enough storage space, it's...

My water tanks will do that occasionally as they get emptied, and definitely as you fill em up. Do you get the same noise when filling, that would be the clew.

Re: Are These 2 New Yachts the Future of Sailing ?

Two interesting ideas:

1. Solar panels built into sails.

2. Combining a super yacht and a pop out camper.

But man, the esthetics just don't work for me and the complexity of these...

Re: Single handed docking...

Great answer above.

I'd add that the bow thruster can be very helpful. Don't have one now, but when we had a 52 that weighed over 50,000 lbs, it was very helpful. One last thrust in either...
