Re: Buccaneer 18 vs. Coronado C-15 [Catalina]

The Buc is a performance dinghy! It has a rep for getting spirited as the wind picks up. So if fast is your thing, that's a plus! it has a little sister, the Mutineer. Less of a handful, but still no...

Re: Probability of a lightning strike

1.5%? That's a very good number, unless you are in that 1.5%.

There are too many variables and too little research to even try understand what the point would be of trying to calculate the odds...

Re: stopping on a dime

The hardest thing I've had with getting a boat to stop on a dime was getting the dime to float!!!!

Past that, lots of good advice on this thread!

Re: financing a boat

One possibility with a blue water capable sail boat is they could subject you to a tougher credit check or even a background check. I guess it would depend on the bank. You wouldn't be the first...

Re: Bounty captain Robin Walbridge's 'reckless decision' blamed for sinking

There was no way for the crew to be able to properly access and weigh the risk. They knew only what the captain told them. Wouldn't such a system require a proper weighing of the risk?

Re: Bounty captain Robin Walbridge's 'reckless decision' blamed for sinking

I don't know that the captain was pressured. he certainly didn't want to waste any time getting out of Dodge. And the decision to sail southeast, That could be argued as not a bad thing ( had the...

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

For those who fault the movie for not being realistic, in that no sailor would act that way. Or for the movie portraying sailors in a poor light, thus giving the non sailing public the wrong idea,...

Re: Bounty captain Robin Walbridge's 'reckless decision' blamed for sinking

As always in these situations there is a lot of Monday Morning quarterbacking going on.

But with this one the judgement was so poor, that even the novices on this board are left thinking, if this...

Re: Bounty captain Robin Walbridge's 'reckless decision' blamed for sinking

Really, ever tell a boss to stick it? maybe you have, but most people haven't. They suck it up and go along.

People do things everyday that are against their better judgement. Case in point:...

Re: Confronting Fear

My fear of sailing at night is running into something i can't see. Like a sea container. I realize that it's unlikely, but all the same, isn't all fear based on the most improbable?

Re: Bounty captain Robin Walbridge's 'reckless decision' blamed for sinking

Absolutely one bad decision after another. All based upon poor judgement.

Using non marine calking was an inexcusable cut corner. Shows the willinness of the captain and the company to take...

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

Yet the movie received major critical acclaim, with something like 87% of reviewers giving it a positive review. Good enough to earn it 4.5 stars out of five.

That said, I agree that a movie such...

Re: Bounty captain Robin Walbridge's 'reckless decision' blamed for sinking

Lot of little dominos adding up to disaster. of course, as with most of these types of things, all started by extremely poor judgement.

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

What you mean to say is that you weren't caught up by the acting. Which is a shame cause Redford did one hell of a job! But i get it, the movie wasn't what you expected. You expected to see a sailing...

Re: Pearson Vanguard 33 reviews?

Jeff, you mention your posts, that there are other better options than the Vanguard/Triton within the same price range. In your opinion, what boats would be on that list?

Re: Pearson Vanguard 33 reviews?

I see nothing wrong with putting this much effort into an old boat. Gives others an idea of what can be achieved. And if you are going to have the boat a long time, the value added is in the use and...

Re: Boston Whaler Harpoon 5.2

THX for the info. I did pass on the boat in question but am on the look out for another.

I passed because the owner was stuck at what i thought was an unrealistic price.
