Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

"MULTIHULL SAILORS DO IT ON THE LEVEL."

If a large bed and a level ride is required, the problem could be one of several;

1. Operator error
2. Lack of experience
3. No imagination
4. Fear...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

I just watched a report of this situation on the news. It mostly focused on the fact that these people took children to sea. Without having read the blog and my familiarity extending only to the...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Uhmmm..... I think those types of things only happen to steel boats NOT designed, built, and cruised by Brent. You need to contact that fellow and inform him that there are super steel wonder boats...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I would ask you to quote a single time I've done that but you can't, because I didn't. Your first dodge was nicely done. This one, well, I've seen 5 year old kids do better.

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

Most of the boats I've seen that have those windows in the sides of the hull are suppose to be more performance oriented aren't they? I've often wondered how on earth you could keep them water tight...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

It would be nice if we could get an another boat builder into this discussion that builds in steel. At this point, I probably wouldn't believe Brent if he told me the sun would rise tomorrow. I...

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

The one that will most likely right itself prior to sinking. I think most sinkings don't happen instantaneously. I DEFINITELY wouldn't want to have a boat land on me as it flips!

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

This article seems to be fairly unbiased. I enjoyed reading anyway.

Re: composting toilet-should we do it

I wouldn't say I was all that worried about it so much as just curious. I plan on eventually doing some long distance passages and the ability to secure any opening lids seem fairly important to me....

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Re: composting toilet-should we do it

Sounds like it would be easy to plan accordingly for passages with only a relatively short period of experience in how many bricks you use. I'm guessing you could find a suitable material to restock...

Re: composting toilet-should we do it

Is there any danger of "spillage" in the event of a knockdown? Also, on long passages, how do you plan on the amount of absorbant material needed to keep the head functional? It seems that if you run...

Re: Rescued at Sea - Are You Prepared?

I'll tell you one thing you can take all the way to the bank. Had I packed $50,000 dollars off my boat, I wouldn't care if they left it a sinking pile of scrap, At the very least I would have fed...

Re: Rescued at Sea - Are You Prepared?

In my opinion the wave height at this point is irrelevant to me. I'm hoping the thread will move past your world and look at the broader picture. If you really want lessons to be learned then stop...
