Re: Maintaining an outboard

Solas tape is highly reflective at night. Easier to spot your dink in the dark :)

Re: BoatBound?

So far it all seems easy, until it comes time for them to supply a surveyor. My boat is just over 25 yrs old and the last survey was 3 years ago. According to their own rules someone should be...

Anchoring under sail

As someone else pointed out, try leaving the mainsheet loose as you coast to a stop to drop the hook.
If the bow falls off to port or starboard the boat won't try to sail on.

Daytime anchor ball

IFWIW the OP profile says he sails a vessel under 40 ft in inland waters, hence my post.

I agree that it's annoying when a vessel under power does not give way.

Re: Daytime anchor ball

A vessel under 12 meters is not required to display the "motor sail marker". I have yet to see anyone use one that is not required.

Heck, I don't recall seeing the black ball being displayed by...

Re: Tiller or Wheel for Solo?

Does not matter. A good autopilot will make all the difference in the world. Tiller pilots are much easier to install and much less expensive.

I like having a wheel but one gets much more...

Re: How big is too big for one man?

Purchase an sail the boat that suits you now. Sail, sail, sail. Grow with it.
By doing just that I learned that my sailing desires evolved as I grew. No one can tell you were it will take you.

Re: Surveyor in RI?

I would second Johnson Marine in Mystic. They go above and beyond.

Ken Johnson even helped/taught me how to winterize systems when I combined a fall haul out with a pre-purchase survey.

Re: Fish club, or sex toy?

What amazes me is that you are worried about cleaning it up to muddle fruit but no mention of cleaning it up before the sex toy act? :D

Shore power and lights

LED 12volt.

I'm considering adding one 12v fluorescent fixture over the galley as I like lots of light when I'm cooking.

If the KY winter allows you to leave the boat in the water, I would do just that to sell her. There is a reasonable possibility that the buyer may not even survey. I don't know what the market is...

Re: Best 30' Cruiser

The C&C 30MKI is a good compromise, fast for it's vintage, very easy to sail in a variety of conditions, very stiff. A fun boat.
No quarter berth = huge storage lazarettes.
Large V-berth.
