Re: Looking for small, affordable printer for on the boat

Opinions differ but I think you're better off with a cell phone as a cell phone and a separate tablet. Some of the newer phones that are mini-tablets are a bad compromise -- too big to be a good...

Re: Looking for small, affordable printer for on the boat

I find that I see things differently if I can print out a spreadsheet or a document, read it through and mark it up on paper.

Somehow it's a different thought process than doing it on a screen. I...

Re: Looking for small, affordable printer for on the boat

Brad, Google "travel printers"; there's a lot of options.

On the up side they're small and made to take a bit more abuse than a typical printer - good on a boat.

On the downside they're quite...

Re: Tayana 37: Coamings cut off - is this repairable?

Oh pffftttt on all the naysayers!

Spin it around.

$25K below market gives you a lot of room to make repairs. Only you know if the repairs are within your skill set (remember the last guy...

Re: Just looking for thoughts and recomendations on installing my new chartplotter

Your Lowrance is about the size of my Garmin 441. I used an Edson pedestal Mount (http://www.defender.com/product.jsp?path=-1|344|2028704|2029001&id=2227612), it's wasn't cheap but it's extremely...

Re: Safe mooring of new style boat

I'm VERY curious who you insure with.

BoatUS crunches the data after every storm. They noted that Sandy was something of an anomaly since so many hauled boats were damaged, but they still...

Re: Rigging repair -atlantic city

Jon, I was thinking they could stabilize the compromised forestay with the jib halyard and make the half day trip north in protected water vs. going up the Delaware Bay.

As you said the weather...

Re: Sailing Dog's Boat Destroyed By Fire

Jason, here's the thing. If somebody ticks me off I have no problem butting heads.

But I won't kick someone when they're down and I don't take pleasure in the misfortune of others.

Re: Rigging repair -atlantic city

For the head stay I'd recommend Silver Cloud on Forked River. It's a bit north of where you are now. If the rig is compromised they can motor up the Intra-Coastal on the inside (half day). They're...

Re: Catalina 22 shrouds.

Since the boat is new to you I wonder if the shrouds that are on her are wrong for the boat. They certainly shouldn't loosen on their own.

The Catalina 22 is a very popular boat and the mast is...

Re: Catalina 275 sport -- Hell Yeah !

It's not my style, but I think Catalina is on point with it and I think they're making a real effort to go after a younger buyer.

The 275 isn't an all out racing machine, it's a fun day boat with...

Re: Yet another first boat thread

Benjamen, Most boats under 25 feet will be fun to sail (unless you buy a real tank), and will be relatively easy to trailer provided your tow vehicle is up to it and you understand it will take time...

Re: Catalina 22 fixer upper

Adam, Catalina used bolts because there is a lot of stress on the track while sailing. Screws just don't have the strength.

Don't be tempted to skip on anything related to the rig or rigging....

Re: Siris weather price 8|

+1

If they priced this at $15/mt with weather, $25/mt for weather and sat radio it would be on every boat with modern gear.

Re: 55lb Minn Kota

I asked the same question last year about the 30lb model. The consensus was the fresh water version is fine if you tip it out of the water after use.

Here's the link:...

Re: I owe the PO a beer

Christian, I think there's a little romantic in most of us. Otherwise we'd own Sea Ray's instead of sailboats. :)

Re: Sailing lessons

Dango, you didn't mention how much experience your fiance has. If she hasn't spent a lot of time on the water, taking at least the ASA 101 together might help her confidence and ease her anxiety.

Re: I owe the PO a beer

The previous owners of my boat really didn't do much in upgrades or customization.

For that I am eternally grateful !
