Re: High anxiety-passage v. Coastal

Minnie- went from peters to north sound in that crap. Right on the nose the whole time. But got to see 170-200' sailboats race around Virgin Gorda for the next three days. It was glorious. Like you...

Re: High anxiety-passage v. Coastal

Jon with your having more experience you've said it just right. I have about a dozen real off shore passages of more than 5-7 days but from the first had that mixed feeling of joy and regret at the...

Re: High anxiety-passage v. Coastal

As pointed out on a another thread some current production boats would seem to be at risk of down flooding if pooped while using a JSD. I carry one. During construction of my boat asked stern cleats...

Re: New AIS Rule

Be glad when the fishboats have them. When deck lights are not on hard to pick up. When deck lights are on I can't see their nav lights. Never can figure what pattern they are steering. Always want...

Re: High anxiety-passage v. Coastal

So we are back to that. That's fine but was wanting to talk about stress on you not boat as faster points out. So if concerns about storms, sinking, possibility of rescue is praying on your mind...

Re: High anxiety-passage v. Coastal

Wasn't bashing NOAA. Think they do a great job but rather like you said even the best forecasts only give probabilities at the end of the day. I guess you did not infer the attempt at humor.

Re: High anxiety-passage v. Coastal

Chuck
We have very similar protocols except I like to get in 6-8h of sleep a day so I'm obligated to take on crew. I also try to get weather every 6 hours for something to do.

Re: High anxiety-passage v. Coastal

My point about the weather is best expressed by thinking about these situations.
You are on passage. You see a line of squalls miles off. You have a good chance of dancing through them or at least...

Re: High anxiety-passage v. Coastal

Thanks Don
Also think even though weather forecasts are good for 4 days max the statement that coastal production boats won't see dangerous weather is untrue.
The worse weather I've seen is...

High anxiety-passage v. Coastal

A recurring theme on recent threads had been the suitability of various boats or features for open water transits. Repetitively folk infer " if it's gowing to happen...it will happen out there".

Re: Sugar scoop transom safety in big seas

Have a JSD, sugar scoop and open transom which can be nearly closed. That's my vote. Also have doors and duck boards with true seahood to close companionway. Figure hard Bimini may disappear but with...

Re: My newest project

Will the boat(s) have a bow thruster? Wonder if forward on one and reverse on the other would serve?. Know some dual screw power boats still have one. Is it necessary due to the lateral plane from...

Re: Sugar scoop transom safety in big seas

You fall off a wave. To not broach you head down and slow up in the trough. The wind wave not the swell hits you in the back. Don't think you're doing high double digits like the open boats nor...

Re: Sugar scoop transom safety in big seas

Would add many boats now have the sugar scoop with open transom. When done with the typical absence of a bridge deck in front of the companionway unless the duck boards start high up and there is at...

Re: Bestevear aluminium sailing yacht, who knows this type of sailing yacht?

Re: Is it getting more crowded out there?

Much truth to 60s post. But what happens when the fishing industry folds so there is no commercial use of the waterfront. Then the condos go up or the resorts or the mega million houses. The...
