Re: Buying a boat without a sea trial-what might we miss?

I wouldn't worry about it, If you can't simply look at a boat and tell how she sails you aren't ready to buy. Get a great survey and you are good. Now get her floating and go for a sail

Re: Your anchor is too big

Muther effing BRILLIANT thank you.:)

"Jay Fitzgerald said it best when he said 90% of seamanship happens less than 50′ from the dock" I think anchoring can be thought of the same way

Re: Your anchor is too big

If a properly sized anchor can't hold you through 50 knots you need a better design, try a Rocna

Re: Sea Delivery from SFO to PNW how feasible?

Nothing about that trip would be monotonous, you should expect very steep waves, 30-40 knots of wind and 30' seas. Don't count on the forecast staying the same more than a few hours. Think JULY :)

Re: Anchoring without chain

Just my 2 cents, I have been using a chainless stern anchor for some 20 odd years and never had it fail.

Re: safe cooking

Let me take a minute and explain how a properly used and maintained propane system works very simply. There is a shut off at the tank it should be shut off IE NO FUEL IN LINE OR BOAT. RTFM :)

Re: safe cooking

If you have rats on your boat propane is the least of your problems. I guess a plane could crash into your boat that may sever the line.
