Re: John Vigor's Seaworthiness

I stopped at question #2, which concludes that a wooden hull is necessarily more "seaworthy" than any other material. How idiotic! Yes, there are a lot of seaworthy wood-hull boats out there. But...

Re: Which shoot thru hull depth meter to buy?

If your hull is solid fiberglass then almost any transducer can shoot through it. Here is a good write-up on transducer mounting.

Re: Beach sailing craft options?

Sounds to me like a windsurfer is what you want.

Re: How does the marine industry price?

Yes, of course. What a surprise. There's always some excuse, isn't there?

Re: sliding helm seat?

I have a permanently attached cushion that automatically moves with me whenever I move. It's called a fat butt. Very simple to use and always in exactly the right spot.

Re: How does the marine industry price?

Then make one and sell it for a fraction of what all the marine vendors are selling theirs for. You'll make a fortune. You'll be rich beyond the dreams of avarice. What's stopping you?

Oh yeah....

Re: How does the marine industry price?

You're the one who compared a $250 monitor to a waterproof, full-daylight readable chart plotter. If you compare apples to apples, then you cannot find a monitor that is comparable to the chart...

Re: Put a wing on it?

I'm not sure that's so much an "article" as it is an "advertisement." Note that the only one they quote--who thinks the current ferries are so inefficient, and who touts this as such a great...

Re: How does the marine industry price?

If you have any real evidence of this, there are a number of regulatory agencies that would be very interested, since this sort of collusion between manufacturers would be completely illegal.

Re: How does the marine industry price?

The marine industry prices things exactly the same way that ALL industries price things, and the same way that WE all price things when we are selling our own stuff... What the market will bear.

Re: C36 and C34 Potential Buy - Surveyor Question

I agree, though I would want to accompany him on the survey, just to be certain he doesn't do a cursory look-over and then recycle his previous survey.

Trust, but verify.

Re: Moving to Tampa

There are a lot of boats available on the west coast of Florida. So, yeah, if you're planning to move down here it would seem silly to buy a boat before you do so.

As mentioned, there is a lot of...

Re: Want to SAIL OFF and live on a deserted island?

Paved runway, lots of buildings. Doesn't exactly look "deserted" to me.

Re: A sad end for a fine boat

Easily? No, I don't think so. Yes, there are lots of neglected boats out there that could be picked up pretty cheaply, if the owner wanted to sell. But getting them into useable condition is a...

Re: A sad end for a fine boat

Truth is that if you walk the docks at the average marina around here, probably 1/4th of the boats need to be crunched up just like that. They are not being used, and they are not being maintained. ...

Re: Installing SSB antennae on boat without a backstay

I'd say you have two choices:

1. A vertical whip antenna mounted somewhere, probably the stern.
2. An "alternate backstay" antenna.

Re: Installing SSB

Impossible to say. What are "good results"? The closer to the antenna, the better it will work. As it gets farther away, it gets progressively worse.

I would say mount it as close as you...

Re: Boat Ventilation

Brilliant way to kill two birds with one stone.

To the OP, sounds to me like you have enough passive ventilation that you don't need an active intake to balance the active exhaust. Two exhaust...

Re: Will this float?

That was my thought the first second I saw it; looks like a Bolger design.

So, yeah. Not only will it float (assuming it was built properly), but it will probably sail reasonably well.
