Re: Greatest fear?

My biggest fear is that someone on board will get seriously hurt. Especially if it is by some error on my part. Being Skipper on a boat is a big responsibility.

Re: boats with the most head room

There are lots of boats that have ample headroom. What kind of boat do you like? I don't mean to not answer your question, but there are so many other criteria that may be more limiting. Examples:...

Re: Do you think I'm going to blow myself up

Why would you store gas in an unvented area? It is really easy to build a storage tank, complete with vent. Build it into the lazaretto.

Re: Pearson 303 question

Both (Catalina and Pearson) great boats. Buy the one with best condition, best gear and best emotional appeal.

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

I really can't immagine why anyone cares. It's just a silly little flag. If you do think that it has some large significance, well, we'll just agree to disagree.

Re: Questions on the Catalina 445

Don't have any experience on the Catalina 445, but I do own a Catalina 400. Similar in many ways, I find my boat to be easy to single-hand. Like IStream, I have the boat rigged to make it easier,...

Re: Best tow service/package?

I've had to call Vessel Assist (BoatUS) a couple of times. Great service. They have several locations near where I sail.

Re: Quick Advice: Donating a boat ride for charity

I know a fellow who did this: He donated a fancy lunch aboard his boat AT THE DOCK. If he felt that the people were OK, they became friends. As friends they then took off for a day sail. This...

Re: Bluewater with no engine?

Putting an outboard on that boat would be ... not to efficient. Fix the engine before you buy the boat (set up an escrow account or something like that). You'll be better off.

Re: Barnacles clogging through hull

John. I've done a lot of diving, so I have some hints. Go down to a sport store and get a wetsuit. You can also get them on Craigs list or rent one at a surf shop. I carry a light wetsuit on my...

Re: Barnacles clogging through hull

Disconnect the hose from the through hose. Have a bottle brush ready. Open the seacock and insert the bottle brush - wash the heck out of it. Pull it out and close the seacock.

Three things I...

Re: How unsafe would this be for occasional heat?

I read some of the report linked by Denise. Thanks. It appears that hypoxia (low oxygen) is a significant danger. It seems like a really bad idea to use this type of heater. If you're going to...

Re: Best aft master berth on under 50' boat?

One of the reasons why we bought the Catalina 400 is the large aft cabin, with a double bed with access from both sides. Since we do coastal sailing, it is very easy to use. I like an aft cockpit,...

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

So what. It's not a powerful symbol. It's just kid stuff. Not remotely in the same category as the confederate flag or the swastika. Believe it, no Somali pirate is flying that flag. As far as...

Re: Single-handed tips and tricks

Great tips. I read it with interest because I also single hand a lot. Two small things:

I make sure that the gates are closed before I leave the dock, and I'm tied into my harness to a line I...
