Re: What to take, toss, sell or store

I wish I was in Mike's "boat" (rather than "place" in this context), but I would need to tow a barge to take my spouse's craft tools and supplies... Hmmm... This entire thread does reflect on how our...

Re: What to take, toss, sell or store

Why go fast indeed? There is plenty to enjoy on Lake Ontario! Newfoundland, I have on good authority, is going to stick around a little longer, yet.

Re: What to take, toss, sell or store

Hi, Mike;

Still heading to Newfoundland this summer? Did you haul out in Belleville, Ontario?

Good luck with your travels. I have no advice to give on what to keep, what to ditch. Just looking...

Re: Cockpit tent

If you are proceeding by buying an "ordinary" tarp, go for nylon or spend the money on Sunbrella. Above all, make sure the material does not make an awful racket when the wind blows, as some tarps...

Re: Liveaborders that never leave the slip? I don't get it. Help!

Even up here, in Ontario, Canada, we have live-aboards - complete with bubbling systems to prevent the ice from crushing hulls in winter and tents to keep the snow off the deck and some heat...

Re: Pacific Seacraft 63' ketch nears completion

Bob,

Misperception corrected. No companion way aft was too weird to be true, anyway.

Re: Pacific Seacraft 63' ketch nears completion

Whoa... thanks for the info, Bob...

Just in case it goes unmentioned, I think all of us very much appreciate not just your enthusiasm but your sharing.

I did look at the deck plan you posted,...

Re: Pacific Seacraft 63' ketch nears completion

Looking at the interior layout, it would appear that there is no companion way from the aft cockit... Is that so? Does this require moving aft on deck to the cockpit from the centre one, in all...

Re: Pacific Seacraft 63' ketch nears completion

Does "split sail handling" then require someone on hand in both cockpits?

Re: Pacific Seacraft 63' ketch nears completion

I may have missed this in all the posts:

I notice winches at both cockpits.This puzzles me. Can you educate, Bob? How, and how small a crew can comfortably sail this goddess?

Re: Fellow Four Eyes dealing with rain

My lessons learned include:

First stop when stepping on board: put glass retainers on glasses, place wallet in a secure place, place keys in a secure place, then...

Re: W D Schock called me a freeloader for asking for info about my boat

I think we have a case here to demonstrate how e-mail messages can go wrong.

It is very easy to send a short, to-the-point message, as you did. You might have elaborated, struck a congenial tone...

Re: Cabin comfort when motoring

Hi, Matts...

6 or 7 hrs motoring, while not ideal, may be the ugly necessity. I still maintain that in many conditions it will be better to be in the cockpit than below... If not, well, that may...

Re: Cabin comfort when motoring

The question I have is: why would she wish to be below in the first place? I find that we only go below, while underway, to rustle up some food or drink, or visit the head or something else that is...

Re: I love to learn the hard way!!!

Lack of preparation... lack of forethought... is there a difference?

Re-caulking without having stuff on hand to clean off excess... makes for a poor finish afterwards

Re: Fellow Four Eyes dealing with rain

My solutions:

1.- stay under the dodger/bimini
2.- wear a hat - the brim should be wide enough so it can shield you from rain that is not horizontal...
3.- as some have said, I am not totally...

Re: Masts - deck or keel stepped?

Guess what? When I saw this thread, I said to myself, "I don't know the answer, but a guy like Bob Perry would". And he was first to respond. Give me a gold star!

Re: Question: Do you close your seacocks when leaving the boat?

Close them. You lock your door when you leave the house to keep undesireables out. Same on the boat: water INside is not your friend, and boats can and do sink at a mooring or at a dock because of an...

Re: Chart and Compass Reading

I fully endorse a Canadian Power and Sail Squadron course. We took ours now almost 27 years ago - navigation that included set, drift, but also fundamentals. If the course has remained at least as...

Re: How soon are they out of diapers?

As a grandfather - 3 kids of my own and 5 grandsons - I predict all will be well not later than the 3rd birthday, possibly as early a 2 1/4 for some, but be "conservative" and leave room for an early...

Re: Short tacking to windward is sailings heavy lifting.

Good for you. There are too many "stickboats" and sometimes I am one of them, not feeling very good about it.

We have one very narrow channel out our way, Minicognashene, that is too narrow to...
