Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

There was photos of huge holes in the deck where the wood had rotted away. And this wasnt timber over fibreglass deck, this was timber over stringers.

The photos are in this thread somewhere and...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

You are missing the points that the boat wasnt worth anything!!!!!!!!

It was leaking through the deck from the pointy end to the bow and the blunt end all the way to the stern. It wasnt worth...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Mark is right on the money. Nobody learns anything when the "politically correct" police start deleting valid opinion and speculation.

Whether it was a factor here or not, a leaking boat is a...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Bilge pumps - I can *easily* clear 70 gallons a day with my hand pump. If *that* was their distress then they were very lucky to not encounter real weather or a real leak.

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

My preventer is just two bits of rope that come down to the amidships mooring cleats, not the toe rail.

Then at the boom I have some very thin lanyard, 96 kg breaking strain, thats looped twice....

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

A gybe when the main is prevented puts the boat on its ear. Or racing with a shy kite and it broaches puts the boat on its ear.
Both are bloody scary to the uninitiated! Until someone lets go the...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

It is - to me - a riddle.

Even if the boom was vanged or prevented to the toe rail how does that damage the hull to deck joint?

If the connection was though-bolted I don't see how it could...

Re: Florida is at it again

I know Marathon is a godsend for certain people, but I spent a month in Marathon in my boat, and to me, the Marathon mooring field was as close as you can come to a floating mobile home trailer park.

Yes, I learned to sail on Lake Guntersville and have seen the bats fly several times. Still make annual trips to that part of Alabama to go caving.

Re: Malaria

I was on Guadalcanal for 2 years. At the time there were two basic strains: falciparum and vivax. I got the falci after blowing off the meds for 6 months and relying solely on G&Ts (much more fun).
