Re: Air Head Composting Toilet or Similar Mfg.

Some people have anchors but never use them and are afraid to use them. Some people sail for decades and never use their anchors. Heads are somewhat like that.

I have used boats with composting...

Re: Cruising California. Experiences and advice.

You are nuts sailing the California coast. It is a lee shore. One thing that traps experienced sailors is the kelp which stops you and then the wind outs you on the rocks.

Re: Mainsail and rigging questions

There is nothing wrong with the gooseneck bolt. It is a lock nut. It could be tightened some but not snug. No need for a washer. It is fine as it is as the nut eliminates a sharp edge.

Re: 25lb anchor on 22' boat?

I would have a smaller anchor and use that for a storm anchor. I believe in overkill but it seems like a lot of weight up there for a tiny boat. However, if you can mount a bow roller for it, it...

Re: What license should I pursue?

If you think you will save up money for a Catamaran working as a Captain, you will find this difficult. The pay is poor. I do it as a part time job and have for many years.

Re: Chartering out of St. Thomas

I like CYA there in Frenchtown.

Honest folks. I trust them.

I might have the name mixed up. After reading the other posts, perhaps it is CYOA. They are close to "The Cut" by Hassel Island,...

Re: Charter fleet ownership

If you do it, do it with someone reputable. You can really get burned with some companies.

Generally, I'd say it is a really bad idea. If it was a good idea, why wouldn't the charter companies...

Re: 12V refrig units and power

You definitely can run a DC refrigeration system on a combo solar/battery bank. You would need excellent insulation, probably at least 200 watts of solar panel and 200AH or more of storage--just...

Re: Liveaboard woman alone

You won't get seasick at a marina or anchor. Sea sickness is common offshore in bigger waves. It takes a day to adjust and the key is not to eat. I drink Protein shakes and take Stugeron. So...

Re: Liveaboard woman alone

One interesting thing is boats are cheap right now. I've never seen them so cheap. A friend has two boats and is selling a 50' ketch for less than 100k on yachtworld. It is a steal at that price...

Re: So where the heck do you shower???

Sailors sleep in their clothes and never wash below the neck. And they never, ever, clean their coffee cup!

Seriously, you probably have a shower in your head. See if the sink spigot pulls out...
