Re: If the diesel tank is done for...

Tank bladders are another topic that comes up frequently. They can work, but they need to fit properly and be properly adhered.

Re: Just another "heave to" question ...

Sounds like the answer is less headsail, not more. You're already getting blown too far down.

Re: Any Solo Sailors?

If I wait for someone else I would never do it as I would wait forever.

I sail alone because no one can get off their ass and come sail with me.

Re: Lashing lifelines

Not true for Amsteel. Check the Samson web site. It develops 50% at a 1:1 diameter, and in a loop termination, each leg carries only 50%. This is true because the Ansteel flattens out under load,...

Re: An Interview With Dylan Winter!

When so many people are chomping at the bit to cruise "out there". His videos remind one that just cruising ones local waters can be just as beautiful, rewarding and fun.

Re: Dumbest passage plan since the BOUNTY sailed straight into Sandy?

At the very least I hope the Coasties gave them a nice 2-hour lecture on their incurable stupidity and duty to never go near the water again. Ever.

Re: Huge price drop on Standard Horizon HX851

Re: Sailing single handed best size, not brand

Don't plan on racing, just enjoying myself. My ideal is away from loads of boats and people. I'll be looking at 2-7 days down the outside coast then back. Bad weather I'll find a harbor to set in...

Re: Mounting containers to lifelines

Like many cruisers I carry tanks on my deck. And I frequently sail well offshore. A couple of notes:

1. Wave action can be brutal. I have had two of my tanks cracked by wave action. It's not fun...

Re: Winterizing a boat

I make a wooden frame with a lot of pitch (steep sides) and throw a couple of tarps over it. Use good quality tarps and tie them snug; flapping in the breeze can damage the boat's finish.

Re: Minimum Draft

Re: Marina unplugged my dock cord and damaged my boat

With only 20 slips, I assume you are easily replaced? Have to consider whether you are willing to leave over this.

That said, he was clearly wrong, as I understand your side of the story. No...

Re: Cockpit and Deck Painting Advice

I can endorse either one or two part Petit paints for doing the whole topside area. While one part (EZPoxy) is maybe 40% cheaper, I can't really say that the two part (EZPoxy2) is really any harder...

Re: Single-handed tips and tricks

Yup, but ya know, after reading it online in PDF form, I found it was much more palatable to read as a book in my hands. I also keep it on my boat.
