Re: Sailing, safety, & size

My apologies - I should have realized where the confusion originated. No hard feelings! :)

Re: Sailing, safety, & size

Well, asking a question is not the same as drawing a conclusion. Might I suggest that you seem overly defensive?

Re: Sailing, safety, & size

Paulo - read what I wrote. I assiduously avoided drawing any conclusions. In any case, a solo race boat and a solo cruising boat are two entirely different things. How many people go cruising in an...

Re: Sailing, safety, & size

But interestingly, the Pogo is crewed by at least four people, according to the video. Is it easily manageable by a cruising couple? Unless the answer is yes (and maybe it is), it is not a "safer"...

Re: Used Aries Wind Vane -- Should I go for it?

Everything I see has Aries recommending 6mm marine ply for the paddle.

Re: Favorite Barometers

Aha, calibration! That's the ticket. Never knew that.

Re: Favorite Barometers

I've been thinking of getting a new set, matching chronometer and barometer. Aside from the expense, the other thing that's putting me off is that each time I go into a WM and look at them, no two...

Re: Rough cost to convert tiller to wheel

What's wrong with a tiller? It's really the simplest and best system. If it works for your boat, I'd keep it.

Re: what to do in annapolis

Bacon's (weekdays) - best "used boat parts place"
also, Fairwinds Marina on the Magothy R. - tons of boat bits, but a pretty disorganized.

Re: Why pay to sail in a rally?

The Delmarva is not difficult - it involves a modicum of coastal cruising and a bit of offshore (which is, actually, the easier part). You need to watch yourself in a few spots - get the current...

Re: Follow the ARC

It's interesting that a cursory glance of the leaderboard is showing all monos out front. The multis are pulling up the middle.

Re: transmission problem?

I have heard talk of this at the local "table of knowledge" but I think the answer probably lies in whether the transmission is properly maintained and lubricated. If it is, it certainly makes sense...

Re: transmission problem?

Weird. The engine I posted about is LOOONG gone (the OP was in 2005). The boat and the engine are no doubt being used by some fisherman in Da Nang, Vietnam.

Experienced crew for Marion-Bermuda Race return delivery

Three middle-aged guys, all offshore experienced, willing to crew by ourselves or as part of a larger crew. We want to do the Bermuda run, but have jobs that keep us from getting enough time off to...

Re: Buying a 30-40 year old boat - your opinions

I'm talking primarily about the high-end stuff. If you lived in or near Annapolis, you'd see it.

Re: Team Oracle Boat Capsizes

I'm afraid I am going to have to disappoint you. Falling 70 feet to the water (quite possibly through the rigging) during a pitchpole is not safe. I think everyone at Oracle is aware of that. They...

Re: Buying a 30-40 year old boat - your opinions

Fair enough. I'm not a surveyor and I was reaching for an analogy. I don't actually know much about Whitbys. My point is simply that the way many production boats are marketed today, with so many...

Re: Team Oracle Boat Capsizes

No doubt, stuff breaks on the "bleeding edge" - and every time this discussion comes up, someone trots out that same video. The difference, of course, is that that was a structural issue, not a...

Re: Team Oracle Boat Capsizes

I'd say as much as the sailing is the technological innovation. In one design, you lose that.

Less skill? Never said that and didn't even imply it. Technology getting in the way of a sailboat race? Absolutely.

Of course tacking duels are absolutely where the excitement is, though it's...

Re: Team Oracle Boat Capsizes

Smack - I might concede that the AC45s would be better, but that's one design racing. Part of the thrill of the AC has always been the latest design revolution within the rule parameters. I can see...

Re: Team Oracle Boat Capsizes

Faster boats might be more interesting to watch if it were possible to capture the reality of that speed on camera - it's not. So, you're left with two boats whose apparent wind is so severe that...
