Re: Mounting containers to lifelines

My solution may not be anyone else's. It works for me.

I have a center cockpit boat with no dinghy davits. The aft deck is pretty big. There are G&T seats in the corners.

Re: SSCA and SSU Updates

My Webinar last week was a pretty big success. We had 66 people sign up, and more have registered for the recording since then. I saw a number of familiar SailNet names. Thanks.

Re: Coastal cruising equipment and accessories

There are lots of decent shortwave receivers. I use a Kaito KA-1103 but it is far from the only choice. When I bought mine I read reviews on eHam and price shopped.

Re: Coastal cruising equipment and accessories

Okay. In general terms (some specifics below) I'd suggest get the heck off the dock and start sailing. General advice is just that, general. It may not be applicable to you and your needs. Go...

Re: Are sailing magazine articles boring?

The failure of L&A didn't have anything to do with their following. It had to do with their acquisition by people that turned out not to be able to follow through. Unfortunately for the staff,...

Re: One Ship Stupid

The same way everyone else does (I stole the chain idea - I didn't make it up). I run a new line from the boat through the ring and back to the ring. I don't worry about chafe over 10 or 15 minutes. ...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

As Jon knows I sailed Aventura. I was not impressed with the twin rudders. They are beefy. Jimmy managed to hang the boat up on one in ice. The big deal for me was not having the benefit of prop wash...

Re: One Ship Stupid

Interesting.

My experience with rings is when Med-mooring. I have two short lengths of chain on dock line that I shackle to the rings.

For side ties I think I would do as Jon appears to have...

Re: Check-In:S/V Moondance: Melrna

Code 0 is not really a downwind sail. It's a light air sail that can go deep(ish) and still carry you upwind(ish).
