Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters

Bob, that pilot house version looks wonderful! If I become obscenely wealthy and move to Maine, I'll call you up to have one built.

Re: No Sturgeron in the USA--Why?

Short answer is because we don't seem to care about motion sickness. Cinnarizine is great, and I have used it (outside the US) and been pretty pleased with it. I will say that the Scopolamine patches...

Re: Phillipeans to feed Pirates to the Sharks

Alternately, it's too bad that the president of the Philippines is actively encouraging extrajudicial killings, and has the blood of hundreds of innocents on his hands.

Re: Boat Shoes

It's been a few months, and I'm loving the Astrals. The insoles feel a little weird when you first put them on, but after a few minutes you don't notice them anymore. They're comfy and have a great...

Re: Learn to sail by racing, a good idea?

I learned to sail while I learned to race. It's a great way to learn quickly. Need a supportive group, though.

Re: Boat Shoes

Well, I ordered a pair of the Astrals (apparently the only size 10 black/white ones left in the US?), will report back. The SoftScience were vetoed as being fugly by my wife :-)

Re: Is sailboat ownership dying ( or at least sick)

All I know is that I'm supposed to be complaining about 20-somethings (I'm a bit over 40), but instead I spend my days hiring and managing them, and my weekends and evenings sailing with them. Half...

Re: Non-racer etiquette?

Racer and daysailer here (in a heavily-trafficked area). I'm overjoyed of other boats:
1) Stay away from marks
2) Do not be upwind of nearby boats
3) Act reasonably predictable
4) Try to stay in...
