Re: Annoying Halyard Slap

I'm the "crazy" person who said it's "music to me".
Half my childhood was on a sailboat and the slapping halyards just bring back some fond memories of my parents--one of whom died while I was...

Re: Annoying Halyard Slap

Hearing them at the marina is music to me.

I leave mine attached but it's slack enough that it doesn't slap.

Re: Guy new to sailing! Advice please :)

Does the sailing club where you are do races? Bring beer and snacks on race day and tell them you want to crew.
You'll start learning to sail right away. Experience will also help you when you go...

Re: How do I google it? (dry sailing)

I concur with talking to marinas. I know of several marinas that have dry storage (mast up even) but they don't advertise it. So just call around.

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

I'm not sure you're understanding my point.

You validated my argument though. You call a man who cries a "pansy". I know extremely tough men who do cry, tougher and braver than some I know who...

Re: Concussions

I cringe when I see people riding without full gear.
Helmets, helmets, blah blah, yeah, yeah. People forget that road rash can be severe, send you to the burn unit, and require skin grafts.

Re: Success! Family turned from not liking sailing, to enjoying it.

When reefed, you should only have the sail held at three points, the head, clew and tack.

Re: Kids think sailing is boring

Not many kids are going to want to sit on a sailboat while it drifts along.
If you're just doing a day sail, make sure there's enough wind for them to sit on the leeward side and let their feet...

Re: Concussions

Traumatic brain injuries are a specialty all by themselves these days so we instruct all of our head injuries to follow up with one of our concussion centers.

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

Sexism is prevalent for both genders.
Men and women gravitating to one sport/chore/event is more complicated than genes. Men and women are encouraged by parents, friends, society, etc to behave a...

Re: docking with no motor and 20 knots

For serious though...

20 knots with the wind on your back are not conditions to start learning to dock without a motor with other boats are around. Call a tow would be the wise choice. Though it...

Re: What kind of work do you do to finance your sailing?

I'm a writer and I don't make much.
It's about choices. I drive an older vehicle. I'd rather have a slip payment than a car payment and you don't have to have a 2014 50' boat to go sailing.

Unfortunately, we're in an age of "dumb" and "instant gratification". The more simple a system is, the more likely it's going to sell. Nobody wants to start out on the smaller boat and learn. They'd...

Re: Re-Decorating/Cushion Covers?

Her style choice isn't really my cup of tea.
But, she's paying for it and it's her boat, dude. And who cares what future owners might think? If they don't like it, they can change it. Fabric choice...
