Re: When do coast guard regulations not apply?

Unfortunately, "nearly rams me" is probably not reportable unless you can prove reckless endangerment along with some video. As a friend of mine says when someone is being rude on the water, "let's...

Re: Keel bolt torque

Looks like Benesailor's post is all the info you need, but this reminds me of what a friend told me when I asked the same question. He said, "do it the German way."

Re: Maybe we can race

Not sure what "not playing" means, as well as the other post that implied the CG has more firepower, so you don't want to talk to them. I know a lot of coasties, and in some of the skippers' meetings...

Re: 1 Dead, 1 injured in Beer Can Race on SF Bay

In most boats I've been on, beer is generally not involved until we are back at the dock or are drifting and the race is near its end. In my mind, beer can races are mostly short courses that run...

Re: 1 Dead, 1 injured in Beer Can Race on SF Bay

As rail meat sometimes myself, I understand your concerns, but it might be good to wait until the CG has done a more thorough analysis than rely on what gets reported in the news and social media....

Re: 3 GM 30 Yanmar, White Powder

That sounds like an easy fix. After having scraped quite a few old gaskets off the same type of Yanmar, it does sound like the gasket has failed and you'll probably find it practically welded to the...

Re: First time crewing/racing this weekend

Completely agree. I can't remember what I was listening to this past weekend about a situation in which the rescuers train all the time, but in that real-life case they said it would have failed as a...

Re: First time crewing/racing this weekend

Yeah, this is how most boats operate. As I understand the history, though, this is one of the reasons why the Northern California Offshore Racing Council was created. Post-accident reviews from when...

Oh, yes, did we forget to tell you about the "safety talk" that every skipper is supposed to go through and his plan for responding to accidents before leaving the dock....? Oopsie. My guess is that...

Re: First time crewing/racing this weekend

Relax...have fun. People just love to rehash the races and argue about strategy! You could try to pay attention to who was where and when, so that you can bombard them with questions afterwards....

Re: im sure the odds of finding a women to date on here is, 1 ina mill

Yup, I'm single and a single-handed sailor so they're out there. The problem with online dating is everyone looks good on paper; it's the compatibility part that bites. I'd advocate for embracing...

Re: First time crewing/racing this weekend

Ditto all the above - great advice! Here are some other things: Be on time; don't bring too much extra gear so you might want to ask what's best; be prepared to be wet so bring dry cloths for...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

This breaks my heart in so many ways. They'll recover. The child seems stable and will be fine, too. But we're certainly not going to see the criticism die for a while. That's unfortunate. It is...

Re: Created a sailnet forum goup for San Franciso Bay Area sailing

Yes, that's the event. I'm not a big crowd kind of person, so once it gets cranking (like that picture), I'll probably be out of there. As to the boat show itself, you can get some really good deals....

Re: PFD with harness

The analogy to this is people who don't wear seat belts in case the vehicle ever plunges into a body of water and they can't release their belt. It's much more likely that you'll be saved by a tether...

Re: Spinlock PFDs
