Re: Rights during USCG Inspection.

Maybe you can help this 'uneducated' guy out because I do not know where you have gotten your definition. From what I have seen the USCG has been given the authority to search any US flagged boat....

Re: Rights during USCG Inspection.

It appears from this thread one cannot film the USCG during a boarding nor is one allowed to observe a substantial portion of the search so I doubt your request can be met.

It also appears these...

Re: Raise the main sail while still at anchor

Should be no problem as long as you have a windlass. Raise the main and let the sheet out half way to the spreaders. Tack back and forth while taking in the slack on your rode after each tack.

Re: Moody 425 as a bluewater cruiser

I have Dixon designed Moody with the bolts recently replaced. It was done in the water and cost something less than $1200.

There are pins that are spring loaded with one end to go around the line and loop pin on the other end for the flag.

Re: Sailing with excess brain power

Having raced for a few years with a crew that consisted of a neurosurgeon, a pancreatic surgeon, a dentist and a couple of engineers I can safely say we all have our moments of idiocy.

Re: I Paid a Dude. And I Liked It.

Re: Best of these Florida cities for sailing

I would think the further south you are the better for crossing the stream so Marathon would be a prime departure point. Cheers Gary

Re: Best of these Florida cities for sailing

I do like the "redneck riviera" due to the colourful water though not as popular as others as a boating destination. I think it would be nice to have the Bahamas nearby.

Re: Best inflatable pfd with harness.

Also have the spinlock deckvest. Do not like the leg straps as they slide down and then get caught on my hamstrings so I am stooped over until I can tend to it. Unfortunately it is a real nuisance...

Re: Location suggestions

I would say I am of the opposite opinion. I think most boats for sale are not listed on yachtworld etc and there are some gems to be found walking the docks. However, I will still consult the...

Not afraid of too much there Chuck, as I said I just don't think it is relevant to the question.

There are plenty of other threads I could peruse to find information on those questions. I am not...
