Re: Drilling out stainless steel screws :(

Surprised no one has mentioned it, but anything you can put in your car you can bring to a machine shop and have them do it. They charge me 20 bucks normally which is totally worth it considering...

Re: The run aground poll

Then I guess I have not run aground. I will try harder.

Re: Liveaboard - Houston/Galveston

Strange I keep defending Houston, since I really don't like it that well, but.....

Compared to Austin, Houston is a traffic pleasure. Houston is 17th out of 100 US metro areas on the Inrix traffic...

Seems like that "other forum" is getting a little out of control. Might have to permanently move over here.

Re: The run aground poll

I ran aground smack dab in the middle of the ICW on two separate occasions. I wondered how it could be that the dredged ICW channel just disappears until I hear the tug boat operators talking about...

Re: The run aground poll

Heck yes. If you hit the ground, it is running aground. Use the oh **** test. If you think "oh ****", you ran aground.

Re: Safety while sailing the world - avoiding becoming a victim of crime

Worth noting that even in the most dangerous country on earth, homicide is relatively rare. Those numbers are per 100,000, so #1 on the list is still less than 1 in 1000. I would guess in those...

Re: The run aground poll

To some extent what I am asking is what is it like where you sail. Where I sail, running aground is part of normal operations. Running aground smack dab in the middle of a dredged channel that had...

10-20
5-10
2-4
Once
Never

I wonder how many people would be in the >10 group. I am at a proud 8 currently. Should...

Re: Liveaboard - Houston/Galveston

The truth is Houston has clean air for a city its size and the cancer rates in Houston are almost identical to the cancer rates in West Palm Beach.

Congrats to Craig

Congrats to Craig on s/v Luckness for his safe arrival in French Polynesia.

137 mile days on average. Not bad for a single-hander and with an ITCZ crossing to boot. No motoring and nothing broke....

Re: Question about speed under power

What model of boat? Maybe some owners of the particular model in question can weigh in.

Re: Question about speed under power

To some extent this is like asking how many horsepower an automobile should have - it is all a matter of opinion.

Personally I would want 6 knots at "cruising" speed, and to easily reach hull...

Re: Yanmar heat exchanger issues on PS boats

My 1989 boat has had two leaks in the 5 years I have had it that led to dripping on the engine. One was from the Racor and the other from the raw water vented loop. The first was present when I...

Re: Mast (Climbing)- No Halyards

I agree with dropping the mast if it is deck stepped. I dropped the mast on my Catalina 27 with just four guys handing it down to the deck. It was pretty easy to do.

Re: Newbie rigging reefing line

Reef line should be low-stretch and chafe resistant. Same material you use for your halyards, but one size smaller should do the trick.

Re: Powdercoating steel centerboard?

Re: Powdercoating steel centerboard?

Powder coating is surprisingly cheap. I just had 2 hatches sandblasted and powder coated for $80 total. I was shocked how cheap it was.

Re: Storage Unit?

That means keep it if you can afford to. You have concrete plans to use it again and it has enough value to you to make the cost worth it. Store it. Maybe shop around for a cheaper storage shed (look...

Re: Stainless -vs- Aluminum Cookware

Re: composting toilet-should we do it

No reason the must, yet they do.



No gurantee, yet they don't.



Could not disagree with this more. Stinking is completely the deciding factor. I spent 3 years, several thousand dollars,...
