Stevens 40

Looking at a nice S&S Stevens 40. Like the layout with the forward and aft cabin. The CC is a compromise but has more pros than cons for us. Well kept boat with low hrs recent engine and lots of...

Re: Weather helm question

LOL. Well I've not done that yet but I've come to understand why you jib slowly. :O

We're looking at purchasing a 38-40 foot cat vs a 40-44 foot monohull. I'm leaning towards the latter and...

Re: Some ASA courses out of Charleston SC

Well it was brutally cold a few days on the water but we enjoyed ourselves and learned a lot. Overall the experience was great and I'd not hesitate to use the school again.

Re: Weather helm question

Thanks for the response. I have no problem with saying I'm not a sailor yet. I'll try to follow your advice. Right now I need time on the water. Lots of it. :)

Re: Weather helm question

I'm new to this so here's a chance for me to learn. I thought that boats could be over-powered by the wind if you had too much sail up. The stanchions get near the water, the LWL is now shortened,...

Some ASA courses out of Charleston SC

Hi all. Down in beautiful Charleston SC at the City Marina. We're staying on a 38 cat and really roughing it. :) The only thing I don't have is TV and I'm supposed to get that tomorrow. Clear...

Re: Raising very young children

Thanks for replying. I have a lot of questions many of the first ones revolving around safety but I'm open to an open discussion. Since I have no experience living onboard I have a great deal of...

Raising very young children

My son wants to join us on our first sailboat which will likely be a cat. We are planning on sailing the Carribean for a year until settling down probably Panama, Belize or Costa Rica where we will...

Re: Different Gun Question

I don't normally put my finger on the trigger unless I've pulled the gun. I don't pull it unless I'm in a hostile situation. So I agree normally you don't need to have your finger on the trigger...

Re: Different Gun Question

There is nothing inherently dangerous about a gun. What's dangerous are people. I was raised hunting, trained in the military in the Vietnam era with weapons including light and heavy weapons,...

Re: Repower confusion (horsepower)

That's too bad. Maybe Garrett or another has a replacement for it that's a drop in for your engine. You could do a little fabrication to fit one but that can be troublesome. No wonder you don't...

Re: Repower confusion (horsepower)

I was wondering about the newer type injectors clogging more easily.

Eight years of life from an engine is not bad although we'd all like more. I'd suggest having the turbo rebuilt rather than...

Re: Repower confusion (horsepower)

I don't disagree at all. I guess my main point is turbos are much more reliable now. OTOH, there are many turbos sold that are not superior but in fact inferior and not a lot better than those...

Re: Seasick medication

You may be right about it being multifactoral and I'd be surprised if it weren't. However, even dilating one eye creates problems with focus and distance perception. I'm not an opthalmologist but...

Re: Seasick medication

It is absolutely not illegal to prescribe a medication in a way the manufacturer does not advocate. In 30 years I and most physicians have used one and generally multiple medications on many...

Re: Seasick medication

I really resent this. No where have I said I was interested in prescribing or advocating anything. Again this is a friendly discussion on a forum.

Re: Seasick medication

I don't want to cut the dose because I don't get seasick. I'm merely curious and I'm a physician. I've prescribed the patch but never used it. I've been busy so I haven't cut a patch yet but I...

Re: Repower confusion (horsepower)

Interesting thread. I've messed with turbos on cars for a long time including some high HP 'street' cars. The issue of turbos causing problems is IMO outdated. They've been using turbos in big...

Re: Seasick medication

There is a membrane between the skin and the drug which limits the release of scopolamine which has only 1 mg of drug in the entire patch. I'll get a patch and cut it to see if the area with the...

Re: Seasick medication

I don't know of any adverse reastions using less than a whole patch esp if an entire patch creates side effects. Is there a problem with patch longevity when cutting into one?

Re: Seasick medication

I'm not advocating any use of any medication. I was only clarifying.
