Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

The whole LED discussion has worn out its welcome in this thread. Any further discussion on that subject should be taken to an LED (new or existing) thread.

Re: Do you put holiday lights in the rigging?


I was about to scream "over my dead body" ..... then I saw your pic. That is actually quite impressive. Well done.

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

Reality is if you want to dish it out you need to be able to take it when the barbs come back at you. Wilson obviously has a problem with that but hey, thats his problem he has to learn to deal with...

Re: What make is this boat? Any ideas please

Part of me agrees with Van de Stadt but no smoking gun. There is a similarity to the VDS39 which was built by Dehler as the Dehler 39CWS but that's not 12.5m (41') and/or the VDS Caribbean at 40'....

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

We will never reach agreement on this. For sure the OP's request was very poorly worded but the response was less than diplomatic and very short sighted.

I'm a small business owner and will...

Re: Cabin comfort when motoring

My first keelboat that actually had an engine was powered by an old Volvo MD6 that was simply bolted into place and with bugger all soundproofing. It was all I could stand to start the damn thing and...

The point is noted and the Dog and I had more than our fair share of run ins but nah, to speak as if he deserved this is simply not on. Now if this thread was about the Dog's haemorrhoids flaring up...

Re: Another boat lost in Atlantic

I confess I think its a good idea Mark and I'll take it up with Admin. We mods only keep an eye on things and make suggestions for improvements. We don't actually design the forum layout.

Re: WiFi Connectivity On-Board

On board we mainly connect via our mobile phone plans which give us two gig a month free. I'm hard pressed to download more than that so it works well for us.

Of course if we were out of...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

The man has nailed it !!

As an example the Hiscocks went round something like three or four and a half times and from memory didn't even have a depth sounder or vhf until Wanderer IV.

Re: Wrapping a Steering Wheel

I doubt very much that Donna was attempting to stifle debate or block constructive feedback. To be frank I reckon most of us are like me and simply don't notice where we are (in a manner of speaking)...

Re: Wrapping a Steering Wheel

Does anyone ever notice ? I usually just do a "NewPosts - All New Posts"and comment in threads that somehow are of interest to me. I confess I didn't even notice this was in "HerSailNet".

Re: Wrapping a Steering Wheel

Re: What do you expect a watch stander to to.

Presuming fairly benign conditions then I'd not bother with tether or life jacket when in cockpit but insist when going forward. No one goes forward at night unless they are tethered and have a watch...

Re: Wind-vane now? Or wait for next boat?

We've got an Aries windvane and Raymarine pilot. Reality is that we only use the Aries when on passage. Other than that we stick with the AP.
