Re: Real Cruisers verse Internet Arguers

Fully gimballed stainless steel cupholders welded to the back of the dorades tastefully done could fix that. And perhaps the beer hat with dual drinking tubes... that would leave one hand for you and...

Re: Pet bird on board

Ha Ha! I can picture that! Funny how they seem to never notice the damage they can do! I'm going to remember the olive oil trick! I was talking to a friend earlier today on my Iphone in a Defender...

Re: Pet bird on board

I'm not married, and frankly, having a steady girlfriend would cut way too much into my boat budget. A bird, or any pet for that matter, can take a big chunk out of loneliness. They may want a treat...

Re: Pet bird on board

My bird Jack is a green cheeked conure. Just got him recently. I'm currently trying to train him from biting. My previous bird was a cockatiel. I was actually trying to find another when I found...

Re: Pet bird on board

I had hoped that it would depend on the laws of each individual country and they would treat birds similarly to cats and dogs. I was curious though. For some let me note that any animal, including...

Re: Pet bird on board

Thanks for the comments everybody. I was curious to know if various avian viruses had caused much paranoia about pet birds.

Pet bird on board

Does anyone have any experience with cruising outside the U.S. with a pet bird on board? I've seen threads that deal with cats and dogs but I'm wondering if a bird would be harder to clear in while...

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

Kinda like type 1? The rich guy that cruises for a few years then sells the boat and moves on? Each gets rid of the boat in the avenue available to them but in the end, the results are the same.

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

True enough. and I'm not saying that there are no lazy people out there. My point is that one should be slow to judge and quick to learn. If you remember the three types of liveaboards you stated,...

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

I can relate. I've done the same thing through several injuries. You pretty much have to shoot me to keep me out of work. But I don't expect everyone in the world to have the same tolerance to pain...

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

I would say that each and every one of us are one bad accident away from not being able to work hard enough to qualify as "not lazy" to you. And that would include you also. Maybe one bad lick to the...

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

Wow!

During the judgment process, for those who fall somewhere in between your labels, do you round up or down?


I've come to the conclusion that those who love and desire whatever aspect of...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Is it possible we are generalizing too much by comparing Hunter to Baba, or Catalina to Beneteau? I mean, within each brand aren't there different series', different keel options, different hull...

Re: First look tomorrow

A good piece of advice given to me was to take lots of pictures and notes about what I like and didn't like. If anything stands out to you, good or bad, make note of it. Jot down owner comments to...

Re: How sailing certifications affect insurance

I was hoping for responses from people across a much larger area than my home state. I'm not familiar with the internal policies of insurance companies but I suspect that location and intended use...

Re: How sailing certifications affect insurance

Re: Tiller or Wheel for Solo?

Whether or not you need automated steering depends on the length, frequency and complexity of your singlehanded operations.

If you're daysailing or running jib and main on longer sails, Evan...

Re: Size vs. Condition/Amenities?

I'm so glad you mentioned this! I never really looked at headroom in this light but I guess it would be like having a 3rd hand when you're working at something in the cabin.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Brent, have your prices went up? I thought you were quoting much cheaper earlier in the thread. Did you ever recall the brand of ports that used 1/16" hinge pins? I really am curious about that.

I think I've agreed several times now that these systems are not infallible, nor are the basics. Lights can burn out, flares fail, mirrors break or get dropped, and so on and so forth. We just don't...
