Re: A little Pollution Anyone?

State and local governments are not immune from suit under the Clean Water Act which is the primary statute at issue when dealing with illegal discharges of sewage.

Re: Leather Disgrace

If you are not racing, how often do you really need sailing gloves to sail? About as often as you need driving gloves to drive?

Re: First sailboat with Kids - need advice

You may want to re-think the importance of a cabin to you. For the kids, it can be a reprieve from the sun, or the rain, and a place to sit and eat at a table, or play a game, or even watch a movie...

Re: USCG Stole my wind!

Oh I understand that the current state of the law dictates that Coast Guard boardings are permissible. I just don't agree. How is it not a blatant violation of the 4th Amendment?

For what it's...

Re: USCG Stole my wind!

You should be commended for your tolerance of what I believe to be an illegal action.

Re: Progressive Insurance Claim question

Good luck getting an attorney to pursue a claim on your behalf without a fee agreement in place. I don't know how you do things down in Louisiana, but I could get my license yanked up here for doing...

re: Cruising may be too safe

Apples and oranges. How many of the Chicago shooting victims were retired tourists visiting the city?

Not making the case for safety in one place of the other -- it is a very complicated issue --...

Re: Progressive Insurance Claim question

Of course that is what the insurance industry wants you to believe. The industry works very hard to deliver that message.

In reality, it is surprisingly difficult to fake an injury and would take...

Re: Progressive Insurance Claim question

I am an attorney for plaintiffs in injury claims. Allstate has been considered the worst insurance company for many years. Not one of the worst--the absolute worst. State Farm is right up there. ...

Re: Top 10 Sailing Destinations in the U.S.

I think most of those places have a lot of boats because they are near large population centers. My favorite places to sail are where I see few, if any, other boats. I sailed one time out of...

Re: slip vs. mooring

See, for me it's just the opposite. I would not be compelled to "hang out" on my boat tied to a dock within feet of other boats tied to the dock. It's like being in a parking lot, for boats. In...

Re: Bet your Marina doesn't do this on Opening day!

I'm pretty sure the people at my marina would think it is an early Halloween if someone showed up in one of those white sailor's costumes.

Re: slip vs. mooring

I would never give up my mooring for a slip. I like the privacy and the motion of the boat on a mooring. I spend quite a bit of time on the boat on the mooring, either before or after sailing, or...

Re: Charter/rental woes...and question

We had similar language when I worked for a marina renting Rhodes 19s for daysails to the general public. In practice, we only kept deposits when it was operator error that caused the damage (i.e.,...

Re: 40 ft sailboat with 800kg/1729 Lbs Drugs arrested!!

I get why they claim they need to do this -- but it is beyond any sense of reason.

Consider that the feds could walk into retail stores in Washington and Colorado (and soon more states) and seize...

Ridiculous that my tax dollars are paying these yahoos to seize pot (of all things) way outside the jurisdiction of the U.S.

Re: this puts the price of boats into perspective

That's not a bad way to do it, but it wasn't without a little luck. Had you immigrated to the U.S. in 2006 and bought your first home, you would probably have filed for bankruptcy by now.

Re: this puts the price of boats into perspective

Well, duh. That's sorta the point. If you cannot buy the boat without financing, don't buy the boat.

Re: Stay away from Key Colony Beach...Sailing Related version.

This sounds more like a local zoning law intended to prevent nuisance situations in the community. For example, I am sure many municipalities ban people from living in an RV in someone's driveway. ...
