Re: My Dog Won't Pee on the Boat

We tried the astroturf trick. When it didn't work, I decided that she needed the smell of some pee on it to get the idea. I think my neighbor was ready to call the asylum when he saw me walking the...

Re: Single-handed tips and tricks

My lines are all led to the cockpit, but the main sheet is at the forward end, so when I am behind the wheel, I can't reach it instantly. In puffy weather I will lead the traveler lines back to the...

Beneteau Halts Production?

When I bought my new Beneteau, I went to see it while it was still on the trailer on which it arrived. Not that unusual to see it right away. There was a fair amount of work for the dealer --...

Re: Monos versus Multihulls on a solo transat

In one of the early videos of the eventual winner, there was a big handle behind him near the stern that looked vaguely like a tiller, seemed to be moving back and forth, but was entirely unattended....

Re: Boat slip/mooring CT River

I stayed at Saybrook Point once. Beautiful and convenient facility, but quite expensive for transients, I would expect the same for seasonal users.

Re: Spinaker or Genaker - which do you prefer?

Thanks for the links and discussion as well. As everyone was using terms that turn out to be ill-defined, I was getting confused. I have also been trying to think of what to do for light air, and...

Re: Spinaker or Genaker - which do you prefer?

There is lots of discussion of gennakers, drifters, code 0, etc. etc. Are there uniform definitions of the various headsails, or are we largely talking about various vendors' trade names. I would...

Re: O'Day 272 - thoughts?

We had a 272LE for a few years. We enjoyed the boat, did not find it particularly tender and the overall quality was good. The wing keel had the great benefit of giving us shallow draft that we...

Re: Best embarkation point for my wife and son

Mystic is a wonderful place. We docked right at the seaport and the only ones there after it closes are the few boats docked there. There is also an aquarium close by for the kids, though not...

Best embarkation point for my wife and son

If you are doing the train New London is a pretty good option. The Long Island railroad goes to Greenport right near the dock also, though I suspect Amtrak to New Lindon is better. I will be in...

Re: Best embarkation point for my wife and son

Nice plan. There are lots of places to drop off and pick up, parking may be an issue at many of them. You could call marinas about parking. I know there is a big parking garage in New London,...

Yanmar Engine blower failed

I think the blowers on the Beneteaus are primarily to cool the engine compartment. But they are noisy.

Re: The compass ... old hat?

I navigate primarily by my chartplotter and GPS, but I almost always steer by my compass. I also always bring my hand bearing compass up to the binnacle, for more accurate measurement of the angle...

Re: Bounty captain Robin Walbridge's 'reckless decision' blamed for sinking

Galvanized Pipe as Mooring Pylon

I have used mooring whips for years on a much bigger boat and they have been very effective. You do need to be sure their base is solidly attached to something that will take the stress.

Mooring Help

Boat US just published a whole study of moorings, quite critical of concrete and not so keen on mushrooms either. It is based on their insurance claims. Unfortunately, I don't have the cite.
