Re: Can anyone give me a valid reason to carry a firearm?

Well, when you are talking about carrying a gun into a country that prohibits guns, that's a different story and I wouldn't do it. I'm not going to break any laws of a foreign country because as bad...

Re: Can anyone give me a valid reason to carry a firearm?

I carry an EPIRB on my boat, I have never had to use it.
I carry several fire extinguishers on my boat, I have never had to use them.
I carry an first aid trauma kit on my boat, I have never had...

Re: Riding Sail

I've got one of those, too. But, I haven't got it out of the box yet. I'm looking forward to seeing how much it stops my boat from tacking at anchor.

Re: Cyclone devastates Vanuatu - photos

That's what I as thinking. I went Katrina on the Mississippi gulf coast, and compared to that, these pictures don't look that bad. But, I also remember that the first few days (and weeks in some...

Re: Take Your Shoes Off in the Cabin

I used to have a next door neighbor who was Asian (Vietnamese) and none of them wore shoes in their house and asked you to do the same when visiting.

It probably does make keeping a house or...

Re: Morgan 41 Out Island

I've never actually sailed on a Morgan OI 41 but, I've been aboard some and they are roomy beyond belief for a 41 foot boat.

Re: High anxiety-passage v. Coastal

I've felt more anxiety sailing near land than sailing farther away from it. Probably the most anxiety I've felt in a while was not clearing the Cape Romano shoals by enough one time, and realizing...

Re: Florida anchoring restrictions survey

Having worked in state government at two different times in my life, I would be willing to bet that the survey and this legislation, were written at the same time, by the same people, and for the...

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Re: Florida anchoring restrictions survey

He's a millionaire who probably donates a lot of money to city, county and state officials running for re-election. You really think someone like that is going to be written a citation? Not in this...

Re: Islander 32

I had one, a 1977 model, and I loved it.

For me, the one interior drawback was the very small head space. I'm 6'3" and it was a little tight.

But, the super cool way the dinette table folds...

Re: anchoring in florida water.

I might have believed that before I had two friends who became lobbyists. According to them, the easiest people to buy/rent/whatever on an issue, are the legislators voting on an issue that they...

Re: anchoring in florida water.

Exactly. And, what is really disappointing, is just how small a campaign contribution it takes to get that kind of response from an elected official.

Or do people really think that a Florida...

Re: If I were young......

If I was young (18-25), I would work my ass off and buy me a boat (and, it wouldn't have to be that nice) get me a fun girl, and go cruising, like I should have done when I was that age. To my...

Re: anchoring in florida water.

I agree with you (although not necessarily with your legal reasoning). However, the operative word is money.

Isn't it funny how people with a whole lot of money often end up controlling things...

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

Re: Is it getting more crowded out there?

That theory makes sense to me. Retiring boomers are probably better fixed financially to cruise if they want to, better than the generations before them. That's the category we fall into and we're...

Re: Marathon FL recommended marinas?

Marathon Mariana and Resort.

We stayed here about three weeks in 2010. We liked it a lot. It's kind of on the bottom of the town so it's a little bit of a walk. But, cabs are cheap in Marathon....

I'm sorry, but the above sentence is basically demonstrating what I said.

Why do you think you have to live check to check?
Do you smoke, drink, have cable TV? You obviously have the...
