Re: Too hot to sail...

I took the 4th through the weekend off, and the tail end of my break was spent at home, in the AC, watching movies. Arrived at the boat Tuesday night, leaving friends at our home since they were...

Re: carry-on/portable air conditioning units

We also have been using one of those floor units for a couple of years, although we are currently in the process of installing a marine, water cooled unit. The floor unit was adequate, but it has a...

Re: Pearson 30 rig tuning

We replaced all the rigging on our P303 and for tuning I used the advice from the following sources. The first is an article that Bill Shaw wrote. The other is from a former member of SN who now...

Re: Buy bigger or keep "old faithful"?

Going through a similar thought process now. I replaced just about everything on our P303, know it inside out, and really love the boat. But . . . I know we will move up at some point, and now is a...

Re: Prescription sunglasses for astigmatism

I'll second this suggestion. I've had a pair for about a month and am very happy (and were around $45 to my door). Do a search on "wrap" on the website and see what they have - I just looked and...

Re: how important is overboard discharge for your head?

When we replaced our entire head system, I opted not to reconnect the overboard discharge. Ours was originally set up so that you could either flush overboard or to the tank, but couldn't dump the...

Re: Fenders for a boat

Not if you like to raft up with other boats and don't want to worry when boat wakes come by. We have two 10" feders and three 8" that we keep on the boat. We quite often have them all deployed for...

Re: Best boat for up the Potomac?

No tax in Fairfax county, which is where we keep our boat. We actually live in DC and the boat is documented, not that it makes a difference. Tim's is great - a little slice of redneck paradise, as...

Re: Best boat for up the Potomac?

We have a 30 ft. Pearson 303 on the Potomac, sailing out of the Occoquan. The P303 draws just over 4', and I wouldn't want any more for this area. Rich has given you very good advice - if you plan...
