Re: Sailing NE Florida to the Abacos

You should open a separate thread about your $100k offshore boat plan. :D

Re: State Registration of Documented Vessels

I found out quite after the fact that here in FL you do have to have a State registration sticker on a documented vessel. You don't display bow numbers, though. When I bought my boat I was told by...

Re: Over Powered in 30 knots?

That's a stunning yacht club. I looked at a boat that was for sale there, and the owner would sponsor me for membership and a slip if I bought it. The club still had to approve me as I recall, and...

Re: FLARES, Who needs them ?

I suppose in an emergency situation you'd grab the current SOLAS flares first, so having some expired flares to backstop the good ones couldn't hurt. If they didn't light, at least you'd have...

Re: Over Powered in 30 knots?

Like the other posters said, you need your main. I hope it's blowing like that tomorrow, because I'm going day sailing out of St Aug in the afternoon... :)

Re: Teak Cockpit

I have teak seat inserts in my Beneteau and while they are more comfortable than sitting on just glass, you can't see the teak when the cushions are in use anyway. I'd skip the teak--less...

Re: A very public grounding

If you look closely, the keel bulb has wings, allowing the boat to stay upright.

Looks like a nice time to get out the scrubbie pad and go at the bottom.

Re: FLARES, Who needs them ?

The flares in question were kept in an O-ring sealed drybox with some other emergency-only items, so it was not a matter of improper storage.

Re: FLARES, Who needs them ?

When I replaced flares last time, I brought a few of the expired flares home and saved them for July 4. We tried five flares and not one lit. I understand that it can't hurt to have them on board,...

Re: FLARES, Who needs them ?

Why would you want to carry expired flares anyway? Just replace them, they're cheap and necessary.

I do this all the time. Just have the plug in the other hand and ready to go. I'd say that you will get a shot of about 6 oz. of water if you are quick about it...a sponge will quickly soak it up.
