Re: latest and greatest binoculars?

This is a quite good article.. A critical requirement for us is the Binoculars must work well at night.. We have been cruising at night for decades and use Binoculars to see all sorts of things at...

Re: Arduino / Raspberry Pi based instrumentation?

That is an excellent point.. If I was going to use this board.. I would probably use a usb to rs232... $20 per port.. I don't see this as a solution on my boat.

The way I see it.. Nema2000 is not...

Re: Arduino / Raspberry Pi based instrumentation?

A CAN bridge does not require a very sophisticated CPU.. I would be inclined to use the PI with a CAN board like this connected through SPI..

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

I am amazed that this thread is still around..

An further amazed that many of the "experts" are not owners of the first mentioned production boats..:eek:

Re: Questions on the Catalina 445

It seems more appropriate to compare the Sabre 456 to the Catalina 445. The Sabre 426 seems better to compare to a Catalina 400. As far as size, cost and dimensions.

On a boat this size I prefer...

You guys really should stop trying to analyze the great lakes.. you are totally insulting yourselves..

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Sounds fair enough..

I provided a measure of the "rough waterness" of my boat.. according to you.. same as "Blue Waterness" So problem solved. This measure works for any boat. Here, I repeat if...

It actually isn't. Ted Brewer generated the comfort ratio as something of a joke and was then stuck with it because people who didn't understand grabbed hold of it.[/quote]

My original question was to supply a means to evaluate the "Blue Waterness" of any boat. You have no means to do this.

You would have us believe a boat is "Blue Water" or not!! Amazing there are...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

CR is : Displacement in pounds/ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x B^1.333)

This is an excellent place to start.. ;)

It brings up one of the most critical aspects of comfort which I subscribe to whole...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

I appreciate what you say.. From my standpoint, the next step is to quantify this ability of a boat.
Anyone like to offer any suggestions?

As a side point.. I have nearly 60 years experience on...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

I never offered "rough water" as a replacement for "blue water". Rather is was you guys that made the substitution and assumed they are one in the same.
