That's true! You need a pipe thread compound there, not tape.

Re: Egg Whites--Natural Ant-Fouling for Running Gear

Thanks for posting svHyLyte.

Re: Words of Wisdom; Words of Warning

Walked down to my slip day after launching only to discover that I connected fore-stay where the back stay belongs, and back stay where the fore stay should be. Talk about serious rake!

Re: Problem with Spot Satellite Personal Tracker

3.5833 hrs. = 3 hrs & .5833 hrs.

.5833 hrs = 34.998 min

.998 min = 59.88 sec.

therefor 3 hrs. 34 min, 59.88 sec.

Re: Problem with Spot Satellite Personal Tracker

With all due respect, you should have known better. Hikers, astronomers and sailors all have their own convention, and How is Spot to know who's buying the unit for what purpose?.

I was a teenager in the summer of 1952, spent a week in Seaside and could not get a date for the life of me. It was rejection city. That was then.

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

There's NO freeken way anyone can pick up a sextant and learn to get a fix with just 1 day of study. Noon site may be, but that will only give you latitude, not longitude.

Re: Do you think there's a philosophical aspect to sailing
