Re: Words of Wisdom; Words of Warning

Happened to be too. Luckily wife was around to let me out because it was over 100 degrees in there at the time. I now secure the seat before climbing in.

Re: What's the right thing to do?

Tough situation, but I agree that they assisted you and took that risk on themselves. You didn't know he was deaf, but he did and should have been especially attentive.

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Re: TV installation

We use the same one for our 23" tv. It's a nice mount. I mounted it into a teak/plywood partial bulkhead using heavy screws. It's nice to be able to pull it out when in use or lay it flat when...

Re: Live aboard legal address

Hellosailor,

You seem to make this argument every time SBI comes up. The point is, you don't have to have a "house" to be a resident. If you don't live here, why do you keep arguing against it?

Re: Do you play music whilst sailing?

Yep. We usually listen to music while sailing. It's like adding a sound track to your life, and we feel that music has a special ability to enhance everything.
What we listen to varies, but we...

Make sure you secure the shackles. I was using mine once, and the pin fell out of one of the shackles.

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

I can see your point for long term users, but what about the transients?
Should somebody that just wants to rest as they make their way down the ICW be required to pay for every night that they...

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

I've seen a boat on a mooring ball in Put-N-Bay, OH go drifting after the ring on the mooring ball broke in half. So it probably depends on how well they are maintained.

Re: Chart Plotter Location?

I have one unit, but I have two connection points. One place to connect is at the NAV station, and the other is under the dodger where it is easily visible from the helm.

Re: Sweet looking registration plate for your inflatable

Who knows what else provided the opportunity though?
A boat without a dink alongside or on the davits means the crew is away just as much as a dink on shore with the name on it.
Maybe they turned...

Re: Sweet looking registration plate for your inflatable

Yeah, so is not having a dinghy on the boat. So what?
