Re: What Y'all think of this scheme?

Just curious, how much of the Bahamas have you actually explored beyond the Abacos? I'm not sure I have enough time left in my life, to ever get tired of poking around down there :-)

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

I don't know, I thought it was pretty impressive how quickly those Chinese satellites picked up debris from the wreckage in the Gulf of Thailand, no?

Re: Liferafts and other survival equipment

Whenever I run a boat that has a raft cannister mounted on the coachroof, first thing I'll do is remove it, and stow it elsewhere, anywhere else... I figure the added benefit of being actually able...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Sure, why not? Couldn't hurt, and could certainly slow the rate of wind driven drift... Remember that Pearson that washed up on Martha's Vineyard last summer after having been abandoned between JAX...

Re: Cape May Canal;Kent Narrows

If anything, you want to favor the north side closer to the ferries a bit. There are a pair of red nuns (red right returning from the Bay) stationed across from the innermost ferry slip, you don't...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Re: Is "sailing performance" all in our heads?

I think it's a real mistake to consider performance a "nebulous" concept... Well, if you like to actually SAIL, that is... :-)

It's also a mistake to assume that a boat like the Pardey's is what...

Re: Jax to Norfolk, VA in May, any advice?

For your first attempt at such a trip, I'd be inclined to aim toward PBzeer's approach, breaking the trip up to Beaufort into a pair of overnights with a stop in Charleston, or Edisto Beach.

If...

Re: Charleston to little river icw

It's only 28 statute miles from Isle of Palms up to McClellanville, even in a CD Typhoon that strikes me as a pretty short day, this time of the year... Others' mileage may vary, of course...

Re: Charleston to little river icw

Pretty straightforward trip in a boat like that, especially starting from Isle of Palms, you're already past one of the worst shoaling spots on the Ditch right now, just north of the Ben Sawyer...

Re: Bristol 26 going to California.

I'm not familiar with the Bristol 26, but such boats typically have pretty large cockpits relative to their overall size. Which makes them vulnerable to a pooping, and poses one of their principal...

Re: POR 15 for Anchor Chain

I'm a big fan of POR-15 for stuff in the engine room, etc, but I wouldn't bother with it for anchor chain.

I've used it to tidy up a few of rust spots that periodically surface on my Manson...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Not just easy to say. It IS the right thing to do.

Money where my mouth is. My wife and I have long agreed we will scuttle our uninsured boat (and home) if we have to abandon it at sea. You must...

Re: Safety while sailing the world - avoiding becoming a victim of crime

Well, not necessarily... The Bay Islands of Honduras, for example, is pretty popular, especially with so many cruisers bugging out of Belize in recent years.

I enjoyed my time there, it's...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Too bad the Kaufmanns didn't have better communications at the time, the outcome might conceivably been different.

I was pretty dismissive of some of the comments over on CF regarding various...

Good point, you're probably right... Needless to say, I don't have much experience washing diapers at sea... Or, anywhere else, for that matter :-)

Re: Safety while sailing the world - avoiding becoming a victim of crime

Damn, that crowd of cruisers in the Boot Key KOA Kampground must be awfully deep sleepers... :-)

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Agreed, I think that boat would have been wonderfully suited a family like the Kaufmanns... With ladies aboard, however, the absence of a pressurized water system is still a head-scratcher, for me...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Sure, reliance on a boomed-out staysail could get a heavy boat like a HC-36 through the doldrums, alright...

SLOWLY, would be my guess... :-)
