Re: Anchoring Etiquette?

I'm only asking because we don't really have moorings where I live now. When I lived in Annapolis, you would see them, but I was never aware of any court case or statute that gave them the right to...

Re: visit Cuba

I think the main way to stay safe from any kind of seizure on a visit to Cuba, is just to make sure you don't do anything that could be interpreted by Cuban authorities as an effort to help a Cuban...

Re: visit Cuba

Well, after having arrested a few thousand people, I would estimate that 95 per cent, fall into number 2.

But, truthfully, who hasn't ever broken any law? If people didn't, we could save a lot of...

Re: visit Cuba

Without a doubt. Same as with any other law. Those who aren't going to obey any particular law, for whatever reason, don't really worry about it. If they did, they would be following it instead.

Re: Florida is at it again

Re: Argh! - Charter Hull Scratches

Like with a rental car, inspect the hell out of anything you rent before you leave with it, and document any existing damage with photos (it's so easy these days with smart phones).

Re: Glue Gun Usage

I think most people would recognize a difference in gluing your keel on with hot glue, and in gluing your window curtain attachment rods with it.
