Re: Needed: Customs & Immigration 101

People living in the USA, often get the idea that every country gives a wagging finger and stern lecture to illegal aliens because that's the way the US handles it. I've traveled all over the world,...

Re: Are sailing magazine articles boring?

I still subscribe to "Sailing", "Cruising Outpost" and "Boating". Not every article in every magazine gets me going but enough of them do to keep me subscribing. I used to subscribe to "Cruising...

Re: Sailing movies/ films

I always thought that would have been a great movie, too. I read Tania Aebi's book as soon as it came out, and years later, bought a copy for my 13 year old daughter.

No comparison between the...

Re: Trolling

I've trolled before behind a sailboat in the Bahamas. Caught a lot of barracudas and not much else (but, I'm not much of a fisherman, although I would like to be). :D

Re: Hunter 30 Reviews

I sailed quite a bit on one of those in the early 80's that a friend owned. I always liked it. It could be a decent first boat if the condition and price are right.

Re: Yanmar single-cylinder engine

I had a one cylinder Yanmar on my Cape Dory 25D. I thought I remembered it as being rated at 7.5 HP. It was a great motor, and it easily pushed my CD to hull speed. One of the things I really...

Re: What is the best sailing movie ever?

I tried to watch that, too the other night. Even with the beautiful boats, and scenery, it was unwatchable. :D

Re: One Ship Stupid

I guess what you call it depends on whether you were taught how to tie it by the Boy Scouts or the Sea Scouts. :D

Re: what do you do for a living?

We were filming a Chalk's takeoff in Bimini back in 1987, from our anchorage, and learned that lesson the hard way as our video camera was drenched in salt water. :D

Re: electric diesel priming pump

I don't have to wait five minutes. That's just the arbitrary time I wait. I have no idea exactly when it happens. :D

Re: electric diesel priming pump

Good point. Mine is installed about three inches from the Racor, but does get the fuel before it's been filtered.

Re: electric diesel priming pump

This is what I have. No more bleeding fuel lines after changing filters or running out of diesel. Just turn the switch on, wait five minutes for the pump to bleed all of the lines, and crank it. :D

Re: Bluewater with no engine?

I hope I didn't come off harsh in my reply. I don't think an engine is always necessary, (and, even if I did, people like the Pardeys have proven me wrong).

I've delivered a sailboat with a...

Re: Where do you mount your chart plotter?

I've got my two chartplotters mounted on top of my instrument box that holds the VHF radio, depth finder, autopilot, and electronic windex, and anemometer.

I like having everything near when I'm...

Re: what do you do for a living?

When I was actually cruising, I didn't do a damn thing. I liked it that way. :)

But, I funded myself through savings and annuities.

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

As we get older, most of us start to do a serious reassessment of our priorities in life, and a lot of us start to realize that we had it wrong.
