Re: Worst Sailboats Ever!

Fiats are some of the safest cars there are. It's hard to get in an accident when the car is in the shop.

Re: In-mast furler advice

I know partially furled headsails start to get poor shape and are less efficient. I'm guess that's not an issue with furling mains?

Re: In-mast furler advice

Thanks for all the good advice. I had previously heard to keep the boom 90ļ to the mast, but people here are saying it should be a bit higher. Looking at the picture of the boat it does look like...

In-mast furler advice

Next week I'm chartering a Beneteau 393 with an in-mast furler. I've sailed with in-mast furling before, but I've never been the one in charge of it.

So far the advice I have for furling and...

Re: Sleeping Accommodations --- is there a thread?

I'm not that terribly young, but I didn't know what a Pullman berth was until last night.

I'm chartering a boat next week with that arrangement and I was talking about it last night with someone...

Re: Sleeping Accommodations --- is there a thread?

I used 3/8" plywood and made four boards that are 12" wide and between 16" and 30" long (on a Catalina 22 the size of the gap varies from front to back). I stacked them and stowed them beneath the...

Re: Sleeping Accommodations --- is there a thread?

We did this on our Catalina 22 just last weekend! (Minus the queen air mattress.)

We dropped the table and I cut some boards to bridge the table to the starboard settee. We used the dinette...

Re: Charting a Course

Do you know how often OpenCPN decides to change your heading? I see on yours it was every 565 nm, was that something you set?

Re: Charting a Course

I've never used this feature for real, but while playing around with OpenCPN I've discovered that if you plot a course long enough that the great circle route would be significantly different* than...

Re: Experienced Rain Dancers Wanted

I wish we could send you some of ours, we've got plenty here in Minnesota. The little lake I'm on was up about 8' earlier this summer.

Now that I think about it we do send our water south, but to...

Re: Docking for Dummies

Last May (2013) I took ASA 104 I was lucky enough to be in a half-full marina. We spent two mornings driving around the marina and she'd just point and say "That one, pull in there," and we'd rapidly...

Re: Worst Sailboats Ever!

My wife and I go on with those, but in an absurdist anti-comic kind of way.

Me: "Looks like it's going to rain."
Her: "Your mom looks like she's going to rain."
Me: "That doesn't make any...

Re: Worst Sailboats Ever!

The worst sailboat is one that doesn't get sailed :)

My boat was a pretty awful sailboat last year, when the previous owner only sailed it once.

This year I've been getting out two or three...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

I don't usually have much to add to sailing discussions because I'm so new, but I can add something about how to help a bike stand up to saltwater.

Minnesota uses lots of salt and sand on the...

Re: Elevator method of COB recovery mixed results

I suspect the winches could use servicing anyway, aren't you supposed to clean and grease them occasionally? It's been pretty low on my list, given that it's a small enough boat that you rarely need...

Re: Elevator method of COB recovery mixed results

OK, so the COB recovery drills continue.

The boom vang just didn't work. It didn't lift the Lifesling high enough to get the victim over even my extremely low free board.

The main halyard did...

Re: Humbled

I took a Laser out last summer. When I brought it back a the end of the day the guy asked me how many times I tipped it. When I said "none" I thought he'd be pleased that I hadn't capsized his boat,...
