In my previous town in Virginia, about 90% of the harmful bacteria in our stream from dog poo and about 10% from human poo (that had not been deposited into the sewage system). It is also worth...

Actually, it looks like the Nature's Head and Air Head both have trap doors that are closed when not in use. I'm not sure if you'd need to put a lid on the urine container or such to control outflow...

Hellosailor, let me shock you. Meeting these criteria is possible where I live, but just barely. Further south on the coast of Maine land prices go up, and north town sizes go down. Even here,...

Is everyone and their mother actually a sailor with a lot of experience on a schooner? I doubt it. Maybe you've been talking to folks who know what they're talking about, but I'd make sure their...

Personally, I always get funny feelings about wooden hulls that get covered (with glass or otherwise). Not sure I like that. It's not my area of expertise, though. Make sure you get a surveyor...

Don't let anyone induce you not to get a schooner if that's what you like, especially if she's gaff-rigged. There are way too many Maconi-rigged cutters and sloops out there, and if you ask...

Definitely, a high-end surveyor. He's over-seeing all the projects at Rockport Marine these days, and he was totally worth it. Alas, he could only find the most minor things wrong with the boat...
