Re: Long Island (and slightly east) anchorages

If you've done Hadley's, try Quisset? pretty little harbor.

Cuttyhunk you've done, but it has some nice hiking too if you have some hours to spare.

Re: Is Ericson 35 1972 built for offshore cruising?

What do you mean by offshore cruising? Ocean passages of more than a week? I too think of it as more of a coastal boat, where you make port instead of riding out really bad weather at sea.

Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

Are we talking at 2:40-3:00 on the video? They're on the rail on that main-up boat, looks like they're trying to bear off (?) but boom-end drags in the water so they can't. In the last view they...

Re: Reefing blade jib to storm jib

And it might keep you from getting caught in irons with just the main, it's hard get through a tack in a screeching breeze, and you don't want to jibe, so it may be useful in that way too.

And on...

Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

I'm inclined to cut all these guys/girls some slack. They were out there, we weren't. And yes, trying to round upwind could have been a knockdown when beam-to, the boat may take it but the...

Re: Movie "Open Water 2 Adrift"

The Lonergans were from Baton Rouge so it stays in the news down here.

Getting left behind is very rare, but does happen. Since we don't know how they died, it's hard to say, once they were left...

Re: Movie "Open Water 2 Adrift"

Re: Is a 32' Sailboat Over-sized for a Beginner?

Oh, man, I am reluctant to disagree because our "mileage may vary" and you may be right as to some sailors, but...

I disagree. I've taught sailing (okay, part-time, but relatively steadily) for...

Re: Rule 16 situation: Room to Keep Clear

Before you tried to overlap him, Rule 12 required you to keep clear of the "boat clear ahead".

Then, once overlapped, Rule 11 required you, as windward ("W") to stay clear of leeward ("L").

Re: Is a 32' Sailboat Over-sized for a Beginner?

Are you a complete beginner, or just haven't sailed the bigger stuff?

Ordinarily I'd encourage you to get some small-boat sailing in first, ie "learn the basics of driving in a smaller car before...

Re: sailor without a boat...

This could be way out of date, but if that school has anything to do with the Coast Guard Reserve Training Center in Yorktown, I believe they have sailboats in Wormley Creek.

Or they did long ago...

Re: Club foot or genoa?

That's a chunky little motorsailer from the photographs, looks comfortable and not likely to be a real upwind machine. Especially with a small jib

So the genoa would be my choice.

But it's...

Re: Flying Scot - did I buy the wrong boat?

Did we ever hear back from OP? That was back in 2013, gang, so maybe he got enough experience to quell his fear that the Scot was too "hot" and skittish for him, and he should have gone with a keel...

Re: Beautiful Alberg on the cover of GOB is

Funny thing, when these glass boats first came out in the late '50s but really the early '60s, they were "clorox bottles".

Now they're "plastic classic", with the mahogany trim you don't see much...

Re: backing into a slip with single screw

Thanks. I note the "calm day" suggestion.

When there's a crosswind, it will either help you (if it's blowing from starboard) or hurt you (if from port). This 'cause the prop walk will rotate you...

Re: One Design questions

One-design racing (unlike "handicap' racing in dissimilar boats) means you know exactly what place you are in during a race. I like that. Also the ODs tend to be smaller and more nimble, so more...
