Re: Sailing Magazines

Our library, a block from our house, carries Good Old Boat, and I would subscribe to it if I couldn't walk down and read it there. I also subscribe to Cruising Outpost and Sail.

Re: ketch or schooner

FWIW. When Morgan introduced the Morgan 60, with equal height main and mizzen masts, they described it as "a modern schooner".

Re: Tropical Storm Gonzalo... Ooops!

I can't imagine what it was like to be looking at the lee bridge with the wind going like that. :eek:

2.5 ton mooring or not, I think I would need a new pair of drawers after that was over. :D

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

For the record, I only have one really blue water experience (7 days at sea and getting the sh*t kicked out of us on a 90 foot boat for three of those days). I really don't want to do that again, in...

Re: Jabsco-12v-Electric-Conversion for Head

We have a Jabsco electric head in the forward head and a manual in the aft head.

The electric is really great. But, I am on my third one in five years (all Jabscos). But, from what I have seen,...

Re: Tropical Storm Gonzalo... Ooops!

Glad, you're okay, Mark. I have to admit, I didn't even realize Gonzolo was heading that way. Thanks for the reports. :)

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Obviously, with the number of production boats growing, that have been abandoned at sea by their crews, only to be found still floating months later, it appears their limits are far above their crews...

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

The point I was trying to make, wasn't that the OP should add a second head to his boat, so much as it was really nice not getting the head we used for everything else, wet, and finding another place...

Re: Pacific Seacraft 63' ketch nears completion

That's a beautiful boat. I wish I could write the check for one. :D

Re: Are you a dock person or a mooring person?

I've kept my boat on moorings and in a slip, and except for the cost, the slip has always been my favorite. My boat is in a slip now, and I go aboard almost every day, just to check things and make...

Re: USCG Doc Renewal Fee

I was with the federal government for 21 years. We went "paperless" several times, with actual increases in the amount of paper we generated and had to keep. :D

If the taxpayers only knew what...

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

On our last sailing trip we just got back from, we decided to just use the aft toilet for nothing but showering and use the forward one for everything else. That kept everything nice and try in the...

Re: Question: Do you close your seacocks when leaving the boat?

That probably is a better way to go. My sister had her house almost completely destroyed by a running toilet that one of her girls stopped up as they were running out to go to school. Just eight...

Re: USCG Doc Renewal Fee

That happened to me one year. Not fun to pay that for something I could have had for free.

Re: Question: Do you close your seacocks when leaving the boat?

I think the more life experience you have, and the more times you have seen things fail completely without warning, the more apt you are to prepare for that happening.

Closing seacocks only take a...

Re: Have you ever hit a shipping container?

A good friend of mine hit a loose piece of dredge pipe while sailing in the Mississippi Sound. he didn't sink but it brought him back to Jesus.

Re: Are we in over our heads?

Take a deep breath, relax and decide if you can live on this boat the way it is now. If so get on it and go. I found it a lot easier to fix things on my boat, after I was living on it and able to...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

I think the tire analogy is apt. Automakers don't make their own tires, they buy them and install them on their vehicles from the people who do make them. Sometimes, they get really bad tires...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Isn't that like saying you don't like Chevrolets because you were in one that had a flat tire one time?

Sometimes you really leave me scratching my head, and thinking, "What?".

Re: Coastal sailing without depth finder?

I don't think you need one, but they are practically giving simple fish finder/depth sounders away these days. I saw a nice one for 70 something dollars at Academy Sports the other day. If my wife...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

People laugh at a guy who buys a HUMVEE and only drives it in town.


There is a moral there, that applies to boats, as well, that some will see, and that some won't. :D

Re: Nine knots! My fastest day so far

I got 9.9 knots on my Islander 32 one time, surfing down a wave, on a good beam reach, and I was yelling at my wife, "Quick, quick, come look at the GPS!" She wasn't fast enough so no witnesses. :D
