Re: Rude word for a sail

The German name for a jib is Fock and the Dutch is Fok. Clearly the same thing as fuk sail, and absolutely no sexual connotation in either Dutch or German.

And yes, the jib sheet is Fockschoot in...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

Wow! That would be a HUGE deal! If it turns out that this is a problem not only with one software version (never use an x.0 version???) on one radio but with a whole line of equipment, it would be a...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

OP here again, with an update after a few weeks of using it.

Turns out there is actually a problem with the GX2000 radio. It generates false alarms, and tons of them! First I thought I was doing...

Re: Blocks, Sheaves and Pulleys: Did I screw up???

You guys up there must have smaller bags of cement. The ones I buy here weigh either 80 LBs or 94 LBs which is either side of 40kG

Re: Black Friday Specials: Cheap stuff for boats

Well, mine has. It was a real downpour but POUF it went!

No big deal, I like to replace the bobbins and CO2 cartridges about every other year (I know, supposed to do yearly), so I just did it a...

Re: Black Friday Specials: Cheap stuff for boats

Thank you! I looked into the West Marine PFds. The Practical Sailor page is notoriously difficult to navigate (IMHO) and I could not find a recent test. There is a test from 2008 which liked the WM...

Re: Happy thanksgiving guys!!!

Wait: You give your location as "New England," and people flocked to your boat yesterday because you have A/C?

Something strikes me as incongruous here :confused:

Re: Red over Green Navigation Light

Point well taken. At short distance, there are other (secondary) cues that may give you distance information which you don't get from a single, isolated light.

On the other hand, there are the...

Re: Red over Green Navigation Light

I see your point. But, sailing vessels nearly always only show one light to you, except for a very small overlap where the sectors meet. Furthermore, ANY boat or ship (except those required to show...

Re: Simrad TP30-32

Yeah, I think I will give it a try some time this winter. Open it up and see what it looks like. Hopefully will just have to apply a little glob of grease here or there...

Re: Simrad TP30-32

Thanks for the input. It leaves me even more confused :o

Re your first point, I will try again to adjust its sensitivity (should be plural, there are several parameters). Of course that will have...

Re: Simrad TP30-32

How complicated is that thing from the inside? It seemed to be making slightly unusual sounds lately, so I am playing with the idea to have a peek in there, to see if something needs attention. Might...

Re: Simrad TP30-32

OK, thanks. Good to know that this skittishness is normal for a tiller pilot. Seems like a bad design, these tiny movements cannot possibly have an effect on the boat so why make them? But who am I...

Re: Simrad TP30-32

OK, first hand experience here. I have a TP 32 for my 13,000# boat. It handles it fine. However, two gripes:

First, the unit is supposed to be waterproof. It is not. Years ago I got into a bad...

Re: Force 10 heater question( kerosene burner)

Looks like you are making progress.

Be warned that the one pound propane tanks are notorious for leaking. They have an ultra-cheap valve (what do you expect from a tank that costs a dollar fifty,...

Re: Force 10 heater question( kerosene burner)

Allow me to differ from the nay-sayers. Kerosene is the classic fuel on board ships for a long time for a reason, and is much safer than any gas (propane, butane) that is heavier than air. LNG is...

Re: Personal Security Aboard

If he comes with a gun or a machete, I want him dead.

If he comes to steal my gas tank, or even my outboard, I would not want to kill a human for being a simple thief. Don't misconstrue this as...

Re: Personal Security Aboard

But where your feet in salt water, and did you grab it with your hands, ensuring the current passes through your heart?

And would you shock your elderly neighbor with a heart condition?

Re: Personal Security Aboard

Well, yeah, maybe it sounded a bit alarmistic. I don't want to imply that certain death occurs for everybody but I still maintain that there is a danger. As Faster noted, 100mA through the heart can...
