Re: Some people's children...

You're never wrong, are you? Is it cool being omnipotent? We'd all like to know.
Have you ever apologized for anything, or have you always managed to blame the other party.

I'm plenty "hardened"....

Re: Some people's children...

That's kind of my point.

I have observed you expressing strongly held opinions on the various fora. Let me now offer one of my own:

You are not qualified to offer such a judgement, nor have you...

Re: Some people's children...

Brian,

Making conversation is "Good morning, did you have a good weekend?"

2 guys randomly bursting into my office to tell me how fsck'd up I am, is prying.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

There's precious little wind predicted this weekend, but there's supposed to be some sun and temps in the low 40's, so I'm going to try to get out there.

Re: Some people's children...

You're close. It was from years of submarine duty, which is a similar environment to what you describe.

Or maybe that's what you were referring to?

Re: Inverter/charger ????

Walters-

I think you can do the CPAP on DC, but not the microwave.
Just do the energy budget and build the battery bank.

Re: Shameless plug

Hey, Cetol has come a long way.
I used Cetol Natural on my boat, and it's garnered a lot of compliments. No orange color at all. I still get the zen of sanding and laying it on.

Re: Some people's children...

I've toyed with the idea of starting my own marine electrical/electronics company, sort of like Maine Sail but I don't think I'd be successful so I shelved the idea.

I'm a pretty private person at...

Re: Some people's children...

Senc-

I'll say one thing about Mac's- The people in my area frigging USE them. They sail and motor. That's way better than a Tartan 30 that hasn't moved from it's slip in years.

Re: Inverter/charger ????

Here's a real-life example from a friend of mine:

He had a 3-battery setup, 1 starting and 2 house.
900w microwave.

His wife tried to microwave 2 baked potatoes for 10 minutes and totally...

Re: Live aboard Plan

Just to make sure I understand you-

You're looking to live on a 30 foot boat, AND you do actually want to sail it.
You're not looking to buy a boat and squat on it until it sinks?

Re: Single-handed tips and tricks

I think the value of lines being led aft is best judged on a case-by-case basis, depending on the boat and how the installation is done.

I know that on my boat, the cabin top is sort of rounded,...

Re: This winter...

I hate to say this, but except for a brief, bitter spot in November, it's been pretty mild in the Chesapeake region.

It's been dark and gray for sure, but above freezing nearly the entire time. My...

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.

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

This is a dumb question that borders on belonging in OT/Politics/War/Religion.

Just like everything else in life, cruisers and liveaboards span the entire economic spectrum, assuming you're...

Re: Single-handed tips and tricks

Ok, you're looking for clever gadgets, knots and methods of running lines, that sort of thing.

I agree that "enjoying time alone" is not a "trick".

I disagree that planning ahead is not a...

Re: Single-handed tips and tricks

This is advice that I live by.
I'm not offering advice here, I'm just saying what *I* do:

I try to plan very far ahead, and be very observant of changing conditions.

Re: Canvas Costs

Well, I won't be purchasing or self-building any external canvas for my boat.

I just had to buy my daughter a replacement car.

Re: Sailing Alone Better?

No, you should not feel guilty for enjoying singlehanded sailing.

I've taken out neophytes for pleasure sails, and for lessons.

I've taken on crews for racing. One year, the crew was made of...
