Re: solid vs inflatable dinghy

There are so many advantages and disadvantages to both. You just have to find what works for you.

I started out with an inflatable and switched to a hard dinghy halfway through my cruise.

Re: Repair or Replace Raymarine ST 4000 AP ?

Yes, it's probably the planetary gears in the drive stripped out. The most common ST4000 series failure. The belts also wear out). I just had to replace the drive unit on my ST4000+. $570 and...

Re: 218 yr old USS Constitution is getting a refit

It's been on my bucket list to see the USS Constitution for a long time.

I always liked going and looking at the Constellation in Baltimore, when I lived near there.

Re: 25 year old boat with no deck leaks ?

I have a 1990 Catalina. No deck leaks at all.

I have had some fresh water plumbing leaks, and one of the portholes will leak a little in a big rainstorm, if it blows from the wrong direction,...

Re: Poll: Baltimore as a Destination

I'm not saying there isn't some crime in the suburbs. I'm saying you have no idea how much crime there is in places like inner city Baltimore, or how many habitual criminals there are in those...

Re: Poll: Baltimore as a Destination

I worked in law enforcement in Baltimore City for six years. If you think crime is the same in rural Baltimore County, as it is in Baltimore City, you are sadly mistaken. In fact, the stolen car...

Re: US Approves Ferry Service to Cuba

Sorry. Wasn't trying to steal the sunshine of those who want to go. It is a cheap destination, I will give it that.

Re: US Approves Ferry Service to Cuba

Exactly. Regardless of how the rules change, it looks like Cuba will still be a totalitarian dictatorship for now. That's probably going to change when Raul and Fidel are dead, and not one second...

Re: Poll: Baltimore as a Destination

I used to live in Arnold (right across the Severn from Annapolis) and used to bike over to it every morning for exercise. Plus, it was frequently our sailing and driving destination. One thing is...

Re: Florida is at it again

Yeah, there can't be anyone left who doesn't realize at this point, that the FWC survey was specifically written to support the proposed legislation. FWC has picked sides, and it's not the boaters'...

Re: Florida is at it again

Good news for now, but have I have no doubt, that the people pushing this, will be back next year, with more money to spread around. All it takes to get these bills re-introduced, is money, and they...

Re: Poll: Baltimore as a Destination

I worked in Baltimore for six years. Fell's Point is really nice and so is the downtown area, but you can get in no-man's land very, very quickly (and, you don't want to be there).

Annapolis, and...

Re: Worst Event During a Sail

I was a boat one night, where the engine quit, we were in 35 knots of wind on a lee shore. When I didn't think it could get any worse, the mast came down. It's been all downhill since that. :)

When I first started dating my current wife, I took her out for five days, four nights, on my sailboat, and anchored off the barrier island near where we live. The A/C and generator, was out on my...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

When I first started cruising, I was tied up at the Panama City, Florida marina, and an obvious cruising couple, in a CSY 37, was tied up across from us. We had a rain shower, and I watched them...

Re: female crew wanted for Bahamas cruise

There are plenty of women who like to sail and cruise. You just have to be patient and look for them in the logical places (hint: marinas).

Re: boat for bahamas, but limited by bridge clearance and draft

Re: Florida is at it again

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

I will agree with the watermaker. It's the one thing I really wish we had on our last cruise, that we didn't have, and I am still trying to pull the trigger on the decision to drop the $4000 or so...

Re: Florida is at it again

Can you imagine what Florida is going to be like when people like Fred Karlton have run the last remaining native Floridians out of the state? It's going to be just what they want. New York and New...

Re: Can anyone give me a valid reason to carry a firearm?

Well, when you are talking about carrying a gun into a country that prohibits guns, that's a different story and I wouldn't do it. I'm not going to break any laws of a foreign country because as bad...

Re: Riding Sail

I've got one of those, too. But, I haven't got it out of the box yet. I'm looking forward to seeing how much it stops my boat from tacking at anchor.
