Re: Spring boat show - don't waste your time

It’s now possible to fill up pretty much every weekend between March and October with boat shows, seminars, classes, rally prep courses, and/or owners’ group rendezvous. Almost all of these events...

Re: Indy Canvas Charleston, SC Unprofessional Unresponsive

I've purchased mail order canvas goods from the Sailboatowners.com store (http://shop.sailboatowners.com/index.php) and have been very pleased. Would recommend taking a look. They have a lot of...

Re: YETI Cooler worth it?

Another alternative to consider is the Coleman "Marine Extreme" cooler. It gets very good reviews, sells for under $100, and some people even say it performs as well or better than the Yeti. I don't...

Re: YETI Cooler worth it?

Unless the boat has no electrical and/or charging system, I'd be more inclined to go with a portable refrigeration unit like an Engel or Dometic. With very low amp draw it will make ice and even keep...

Re: Chartering out of Rock Hall... a few questions.

Castle Harbor and Mears have awesome pools and both have restaurants on site. Haven't been to Mears in ages but stayed at Castle a couple years ago and staff were friendly and they had free coffee...

Re: Chartering out of Rock Hall... a few questions.

I’m not sure why you’d go through the Narrows to get from Rock Hall to Annapolis unless you planned to stop in the Wye or St. Michaels (which I would recommend). You can nearly sail a straight rhumb...

Re: SAIL Snowbird Rally 2015- Now less for more

Other critiques of this event aside, 10/24 seems a bit late to depart Hampton. For ostensibly being geared toward ICW newbies, one would think an earlier departure would allow more time to beat the...

Re: Observations From the 'Field'

Graham,

Thanks for posting this information. We're planning to head south this fall and have made some similar outfitting choices - with the exception of the watermaker.

Re: New AIS Rule

Given how hard it has been to convince the boating public of the benefit of running two wires between their DSC VHF radio and GPS unit, I'm not overly optimistic that those same boaters are going to...

Re: New AIS Rule

Hopefully this will mean AIS transponders will become less expensive. Class B units seem to have hit a floor of about $500 a few years ago that has been slow to be broken.

Re: Cambridge MD Sailnet Rendezvous July 25-26

Considering Cambridge is 15 miles upriver from the mouth of the Choptank, 40 miles from Annapolis, and 60 from Baltimore, it's really not a convenient location for anyone who doesn't already keep...

Re: Internet at Sea - Sky Mate I1000

It might be good to confirm Sky Mate still exists and is still accepting new subscriptions. As miata noted, a good deal of the information on their site is severely out of date.

Re: One-day sale on WestMarine paints

On my old boat I ended up alternating between Pettit SR-40 and PCA Gold based on whichever was cheaper when I went to purchase it. Sometimes the name brand paint would actually be cheaper on sale...
