Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

Yes, always sad to hear of the loss of fellow sailors, of course...

However, with so few details available at the moment, who knows whether or not those affected were or were not wearing PFDs, or...

Re: Furling line death trap

LOL! Nah, if that were on a Modern Production Boat, it would have been placed WAY too far forward, so as to pull the bow sharply into the dock as soon as any tension was taken up on an aft spring......

Re: Serious attack on cruisers in Haiti - Injuries

I wouldn't worry too much about that... I've heard plenty of sailing forum bluster on this topic over the years, but in my observation, a fair amount of that comes from folks who aren't going...

Re: Thoughts on this one?

Are you sure you want to live with those cockpit "comings"? They're a classic feature of a boat designed from the inside/out...

Try to picture moving in and out of that cockpit on a regular...

Re: Furling line death trap

No need to get fancy, a couple of 29mm Harken Ti-Lites lashed to the rail works fine for me, and provides just enough height that the line doesn't lay on deck to collect moisture and dirt, as long as...

Re: Serious attack on cruisers in Haiti - Injuries

Impossible question to answer... As always, It depends... :-)

You may want to follow a thread over on Cruiser's Forum, started by an American would-be circumnavigator who is amazingly candid about...

Re: Furling line death trap

It's astonishing how commonplace this is, virtually every boat I get on has that hazard... As we were just reminded today with the tragic death of that young girl in Texas, boats are probably more...

Re: Delivery - NC to St Augustine

Well, at the start of a trip on a boat new to you, I would certainly not suggest you head from Beaufort out around Frying Pan straight away... :-)

Shoot on over to Masonboro Inlet instead... Spend...

Re: Spreader halyards for burgees or radar reflector?

My flag halyards are 1/8" line, perhaps even a bit smaller... There may be someone out there capable of doing an end-to-end splice on cordage that small to form a continuous loop, but it sure as hell...

Re: Spreader halyards for burgees or radar reflector?

LOL! Or, he could make up a good excuse by sailing to another country...

In my observation, the courtesy flags of both Canada, or Bermuda, go quite nicely with a dark-hulled boat like his...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Huh? You're referring to a recent comment made over on CF, perhaps?

Well, that was nothing that hasn't been said before... :-)

But why not address it over there? Oh, wait, I forgot... :-)

Re: Florida is at it again

I think those fears might be a bit overstated. I've spent a fair bit of time in the Keys, I doubt something like the 200' setback will affect many, perhaps more than a relatively small number of...

Re: Serious attack on cruisers in Haiti - Injuries

One thing I'm continually surprised by, is the number of cruisers out there who don't carry a serious - and I mean a SERIOUS - searchlight... Amazing how many boats I deliver that don't have anything...

Re: Florida is at it again

My mistake, I thought your mention of the "insanely expensive" cost of spending a night on the ICW referred to paying transient rates at marinas, as I'm not aware of any places along the ICW in...

Re: Florida is at it again

Actually, you don't ... If stopping in Florida has become so onerous to some, no reason you just can't sail right on by... Heading N to the Chesapeake, hitching a ride on the Stream sounds like a...

Re: Windlass foot switch alternatives?

Not sure how well your boat might be suited to it, but I like a corded remote plugged in somewhere in the forecabin, and led out thru a port or hatch when used... Simple, and very functional, and...

Re: s/v Seaquel Rescue.

Any further details on this one? Specifically, related to the type of failure, or brand of the shaft seal?

Just a hunch, but I'm gonna guess much of this drama might have been easily avoided...

Re: High anxiety-passage v. Coastal

It can be pretty astounding, how many folks out there appear to think the whole world is like the US Eastern seaboard...

Just make sure your Sea Tow policy is current, your EPIRB battery...

Re: Uh-oh, sounds like a new Production Boat might have found its limit...

I have no idea, I've never been aboard that boat, or given it any sort of look-thru... Some sort of failure around the bow thruster tube certainly sounds plausible, however... Another argument in...

First, its effectiveness depends upon proper inflation... no guarantee of that happening for a bit of gear that will live...

Re: My New MOB Procedure

How easy do you suppose it would be for a MOB, his eyes never much more than about a foot above the water surface, spot that thing floating in 5-6 foot seas?

KISS... I think the first thing to go...
