Re: A big Oyster abandoned off Spain

Actually, PCP added a lot to this forum. Some of us miss his input. He had a little trouble with English, but I never saw anyone step up and explain things to him in Portuguese.

And then there...

Re: Using a DSC-capable radio without having an MMSI? - UNIDEN MHS135

Check the manual carefully. I just bought a Standard Horizon Eclipse with DSC capability. With that radio, until one enters the MMSI, the radio beeps to let one know that the MMSI number has not...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Actually, I believe Shockwave when he says he wouldn't buy the new boats. What he is telling us is that he doesn't have the financial clout to buy a new boat. So, he'll just call them crap.

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Here in NC, when the storms come, it's hard to separate the bull and hype from what's real. Over the years, I've found that if I really want to know what's happening or going to happen, I go to...

Re: Structural question for you engineering types

In all probability you are ok. However, for peace of mind, you might take some aluminum flat plate of at least same thickness as mast aluminum or even thicker, cut it to the round shape of the winch...

Question for Bob Perry. I don't recall you addressing CE A classification as to what it really contains as requirements and the significance of those. I suspect that you and most other designers...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

All the fussing about the Hunter that went ashore and had the anchor chain cut away the hull proves nothing. It was one boat, which experienced conditions not typical of most boats, Hunter and...

Of course, each person is free to draw their own conclusions and what you say is certainly true as far as it goes. Further, in all these posts, I doubt that anyone has changed their opinion on this...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Let's look at some numbers...Maybe those production B, J, H, C boats are not as flimsy as some on these threads would have us believe. And maybe those heavy rugged boats with certain high level...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

This conversation seems to have assumed that the anchor support ripped out of the hull first, leading to the chain sawing through the fiberglass hull, then going ashore. But is that how it happened?...

Let,s see.....the Hunter in the video cost how much and your Outbound cost how much? Maybe it's all about the money.

Re: What constitutes an 'experienced sailor'?

Experience is gained in many ways, so there is not set answer to what is an experienced sailor. But take care when people start talking about being an experienced sailor. Most of the time, when...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Actually, it's truth. I agree that there are other manufacturers who build and price at essentially J, B, H, C levels. I'd tend to put Bravaria in that class and I don't exclude those others, it's...

Minnewaska,

Thanks for posting your experience with Jeanneau 54DS. Another owner may have a different set of concerns and thoughts, as each boat, and each owner may have a different experience...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

It seems to me that there is a perception that J B H C boats are somehow inferior and substandard. True, they are not built to the same fine detail and appearance that some other...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Really? You are stepping forward with definitive, indisputable data to back this up? I didn't think so. I submit that you don't know what you are talking about.
