Re: Rights during USCG Inspection.

They don't need to ask you if you are commiting a crime, they will make that determination on their own.

I see it going like this: CG: Are you transporting any contraband? Boater: I plead my...

Re: Rights during USCG Inspection.

The Coast Guard doesn't need probable cause, and failure to cooperate could result in your arrest and maybe even the...

If I understand your question, you're trying to calculate the incremental costs of an additonal 50,000 of boat purchase price.

An additonal $50,000 of purchase price costs you an additional 6.35%...

Re: Radar Dome Placement and Installation

I ended up going with a Garmin unit on the Questus mount on the backstay. It went on this spring, so I'm still getting familiar with it.

Re: Experience with Boat Co-Ownership or Partners

Marry someone who is as interested in sailing as you are, and who earns enough to cover 50 % ;-)

Re: Tipping?

I'd be more than happy to take you sailing for $900 a day. You don't have to tip me or feed me. In fact, I'll cook for you.

Re: ASA 101 Prep?

The school should have sent you a book as part of your registration fee. But, I have found that many will often wait until you arrive, which really doesn't help you read ahead. This is the book...

Re: Barnegat/ Tice's Shoal

It was a nice quiet anchorage in the 80's and 90's when I kept a boat on the bay. From what I hear today, you could walk to shore on the number of boats there on a summer weekend. I used to leave...

Re: Reattaching cabin top hand rails

If the choice is to purchase new rails for $140.00, or drive yourself nuts ( no pun intended) trying to get the old bolts out, I'd spend the Money and get it over with, and go sailing.

You can...

Re: What would u do? (bareboat dilemma #2)

To me it makes the claim that you scratched the boat upon return that much more suspicious.

Are you going back to them with these issues now in an attempt to get your security deposit back?

Re: Pink slip or something else issued by ??

Keith, I believe that you would need to update the Coast Guard Documentation Center. Your original paperwork should have listed the lien or loan, which they'll have on file. So they'll need a...

Re: TV Antenna Location

Until you get around to mast mount it, you could fabricate something like this and haul it up the sail track with the main halyard. I made one a few years ago using his plans. Took me about 1 1/2...

You have received a lot of good rigging advice here, but like MarkSF, I'm a little worried that what you don't know could get you hurt. You should really invest in a lesson or two. It will clear a...

Re: 5411 Kept Slowing Then Quit

I lean toward the sludge issue. Sounds like you have growth or debris in your fuel tank that perhaps got stirred up in the 15 to 20 knot headwinds.
