Re: Beneteau Halts Production?

Re: Beneteau USA closing operations?

Basing it on no one from Beneteau publicly denying the suspicion, and a boat that was delivered with a punch in it.

That is brutal. Hopefully it at least floats.

Wonderful docking video

You will laugh and learn, if you don't watch at least until halfway you are missing out.

Re: Why are wheels so big?

Exactly!

I may be taking delivery of Oceanis 35 in the spring. We can get made fun of equally :) Yachting Monthly loves your 349.

Re: Why are wheels so big?

If your tacking single handed on a boat like this, I believe it's easiest to stand just in front of the wheels, so some of Jon concerns may not apply, ie no bracing for pulling and reaching over the...

Re: Why are wheels so big?

Ah, never considered how a big wheel allows you sit outboard more. Blind to obvious I am.

I don't totally agree with the notice that you need them for leverage though. I wonder if anyone has ever...

Why are wheels so big?

I don't understand why the steering wheels on sailboats need to be so large.

Re: Never been in a slip

I've always wondered what people use for internet connections at anchor. I sort of wish that it wasn't accessible at anchor, but oh well...Don what are you using and how do you get access?

Re: Light-light air!!! Exciting stuff?

Weight to the leeward. Stand on the cabin top and control the mainsheeting with two hands on the boom - like a windsurfer.

Re: Small Kayak Sails

Anything helps. So, yes you might gain a knot or two. If you don't own a kayak yet and you want to put a sail on one, I would suggest looking at a Hobie Adventure Island. I have one and love it. The...

Re: The Voyages of Paragon, Season 2

Re: in mast furling issue

Loosen the vang if you have one. A winch shouldn't be needed to unfurl as you stated. See what you can discover by pulling on the clew by hand. It's often a WTF moment. And then it the geometry of it...

Re: Seldon In-mast furler

The winch on the mast is mostly just a back up should the furling line break or come loose off the drum. You can also lock it so it can't unfurl if you have reefed. Though if you try to winch at the...

A happy dog overboard story

Today we were sailing around the Toronto Island when I came up a dog crossing my bow. He had a red lifejacket on.

He had apparently jumped overboard without the owners knowing. We circled and...

Re: Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

Hi Drake,

Great stuff as always. I love the footage.

Couple of thoughts; I wouldn't overdo the cross dissolves. Part of what makes your videos so engaging is watching the thought process, sans...

Stern to docking with swim platform?

Re: " All Is Lost" movie

Re: Learning to dock shorthanded

Boat is a 2006, Hunter 36 for reference to my question.

Re: Fishing

In light wind days, we'll troll for salmon and trout in Lake Ontario. I use a 10' trolling rod with a dipsy diver that gets the lure down to about 70 feet. The hard part is keeping the boat around...
