Re: Marina Electrical Problems

P=V^2/R (* power factor for AC). So the scenario you give results in lower power, not more. How would this melt the cord?

Re: Smartphone wind speed

FYI, it wasn't my intention to ridicule you, or anyone else who wants to buy this product. But when I first saw those things a couple years ago, and they were priced more than a dedicated handheld...

Re: Smartphone wind speed

I agree that masthead transducer is far superior for many reasons.

The Windmate model that I linked has a little built-in vane to so you can easily point it into the wind by eye. That particular...

Re: Smartphone wind speed

I don't get the point of this. "For the man who has iEverything and will buy iAnything"???

I think a dedicated handheld wind meter is a better option. This is what I ended up getting a few years...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

There's a difference between mission creep and an initial mission that's bigger than you realized. I think you have the latter.

AIS data is worthless unless you have a good way to display it....

Re: Nexus Autopilot lurches left?

Not familiar with your gear or boat, so this is a shot in the dark.

Is the fluxgate compass for your autopilot located a good distance from your steering wheel? If it's too close, the autopilot's...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

I can see your reluctance to rip out that perfectly functioning VHF. But I can tell you that a DSC radio is a significant safety enhancement, when the DSC is properly configured. Properly configured...

Re: How does the marine industry price?

To reinforce what Jon said, the other piece of this is that UP is establishing a reputation of playing loose with the facts. It undermines all of his other conspiracy theories such as price fixing,...

Re: How does the marine industry price?

I'm not sure why you have such a woody for this guy. The fact is, he has shown some pretty condescending behavior, and acted like a know it all in areas where he demonstrates that he has little...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

I choose to stay out of their way where I sail. I'm not going to engage in an argument over this - there are plenty of other threads where you can find and join those arguments. I have no interest in...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

I figured that. It didn't seem intentional.


Sorry, my personal preferences were sneaking into my post.

I daysail on the Delaware River where there's a lot of commercial shipping traffic....

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

This statement is going to confuse a lot of AIS newcomers.

Yes, the display of vessels on the marinetraffic website depends on someone having an AIS receiver interfaced to the internet. They...

Re: Still Pond Creek

Upon entering, I hugged the trees and the private docks along that shore, and was seeing 8-10'. It wasn't until I rounded the corner SE of G9 that I saw skinny water. As I mentioned to Shawn, I saw a...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

I can't hail from my chartplotter display either, but my SH VHF/AIS does give me a list of nearby vessels (on the radio itself) from which I can hail boats directly without manually entering the...

Re: How does the marine industry price?

From my discussions with the designers, it is very difficult to come up with a cup design that is accurate when the boat is heeling. A lot of aerodynamic modeling, prototyping, and testing went into...

Re: How does the marine industry price?

Then don't buy it. You're such an expert at everything, I'm sure you made your own while half asleep today.

Re: How does the marine industry price?

You have repeatedly accused the marine electronics industry of illegal price fixing.




Yet you have not presented a shred of evidence of illegal collusion.

Re: Boat registration NY/NJ

From reading this, it appears that that a non-powered sailboat (sailing dinghy like a Sunfish or Phantom) on non-tidal waters does not require any sort of certificate in NJ. True?
