Re: What is this?

Oh that makes sense - I could tie it to the life ring and then it would automatically deploy when I throw the ring. Interesting to see it built into the structure of the boat. Thanks!

What is this?

Found in the stern of my boat. There's a horizontal cylindrical hole through the stern and it contains this thing. It has a light line attached to it (like fishing line). Best I can think of is a MOB...

A fun day on the sound

This happened two weeks ago, but fun...

My wife invited one of her friends from southeast Washington out for a sail. Smooth day - 8-10 knots of wind dying down to a calm in the afternoon. The wind...

Does anyone else find it incredibly awkward to work dual-lever engine controls? I'm curious if anyone has any tricks to dealing with these:

Re: Seeking a solo skipper doing the live-aboard thing in the Caribbean.

T-Dawg, that prose was awesome. Thank you. The crew questionaire was also useful, I hadn't seen that yet.

Best of luck

Re: Spring Sailing......

Beautiful boat, looks brand new. I love the line organization in the companionway, I've never seen that before.

Re: First time crewing/racing this weekend

Others have said hold your questions - when you're readying to round a point, be 100% clear on what your role is. I.e., if the skipper says we're raising the jib and dropping the spinnaker, be...

Re: How much water is normal?

Thanks - I'm hesitant to give the water a taste, because of the greasy engine compartment. I'm actually fairly hopeful that it's freshwater coming from a leak in some cockpit fitting. After drying it...

How much water is normal?

My boat takes on ~4 gallons of water between the bilge and engine compartment. It takes about two months to accumulate this much, at which point I slop it all out. This is my first boat and I'm...

Re: Another PNW sailor

Awesome, thanks. I've been over to Port Madison (Suquamish?), and that was a pretty nice sail. Surprisingly, it's never occurred to me to go around Bainbridge island. I really like that idea.

Dinghy maintenance

The boat I recently acquired came with a simple dinghy (not RIB, just simple fiberglass? rowboat). Previous owners have left it floating in the water in front of the boat, because the marina charges...

Re: Another PNW sailor

Thanks all,

I'd appreciate any tips about neat spots around the area. I'm over on dock Q. I'm not quite as hardcore, but went out three times in December. I'm yet to go out this month.

What...

Another PNW sailor

Hey all, just introducing myself. I'm yet another PNW sailor based out of Shilshole with a recently acquired Peterson 33. I've been sailing dinghies up until now, so this is my first big boat. I'm...
