Do You Sail Solo?

I do wonder at folks who buy boats that require more than one individual to run. Of course I chose a boat that as a soloist I can handle without help. Still, on passages I will have FROM NOW ON an...

Re: Worse than a garage... I may need help

I too have Too-Much-Stuff-itis however I do make a concerted effort to always have everything put away. That way if it doesn't have a place stowed, out it goes.

There are exceptions -- at...

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I have Admiral on my boat card... it was that or Bilge Rat, both of which have been the titles most earned of late. But most people call me by the name of my boat and that's perfectly fine too.

Re: Daytime anchor ball

On Seaweed I display the anchor ball. It's not hard and it is the rules. We don't get to pick the ones we want to follow unless we are willing to accept the consequences for our choices. I leave mine...

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Hello gamayun. I see lots of 20' to 25' center console and fishing boats. There appears to be one live-aboard sailboat at a marina near the anchorage. In the anchorage are seven sailboats. One or...

Re: sailing with my dog

Skipper's "outside" is the swim platform. At first every time she got in the dinghy she thought "this is a great place to..." and that got old REAL QUICK. So I would put her on the swim platform...

Re: sailing with my dog

My Skipper is a papillon mix, and weighs in at 4 pounds 3 ounces. Whatever life jacket you buy for yours, make sure the belly straps are wide. You'll be picking the dog up and the more support under...

Re: How much of your storage is devoted to tools and parts?

One dinette locker is the main tools and parts inventory storage place. I've also got a crate in the bilge for more. And some oil is down there too. Oh, and the bottom shelf of the locker under my...

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Owning a boat doesn't make you a boater any more than sleeping in the garage makes you a car. USING a boat is the difference, and few people (male or female) actually use their boats.

Re: 12vdc fan

I have three of the Hella ($22 from Defender's) fans on Seaweed. Two are bolted to bulkheads while the third is screwed to an old clamp like the Roofers/termite men use. It can clip on the rails and...

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Hello Lesley. If you're in a marina or boatyard the best/easiest way is to chat up a fellow who has done similar work on his boat. Ask questions. Nobody knew all this stuff at first. We learn and...

Hello Frogwatch. Thanks for the head's up. Yes, I've got Tyson's Harbor marked as a stopping point/anchorage while I wait weather. It looks pretty, and I'm looking forward to a new view.

Re: when was the last time you cleaned your bilge?

Whenever I am at a dock I do a thorough bilge clean-out but mostly just once a month I wipe down the bilge. There's nothing much there. Still when checking the bilge pump switches it's easy enough to...

Re: Admiral wont let me name the boat "Bikini Bottom"

Whatever you name the boat it should not be vile. And if your wife isn't fond of a name, that's not the one to chose. After all, happy wife, happy life.
