Re: Popularity of center cockpits?

We had one but it was older - a Peterson 44. We loved it. We didn't want a CC at first, but once we actually went aboard one, we changed our minds. It was a great layout. Good luck with your...

Re: Sailboat missing off CA coast

If the pranksters (I feel that's an understatement as it's much more than a 'prank') were on a passing ship with AIS, there's a good chance that the ship can be identified. If they had only made one...

Re: Sailboat missing off CA coast

Yes, you're correct, Jon - I was referring to Faster's comment that I quoted about a possible hoax call being placed from a larger vessel in the area.

Re: Sailboat missing off CA coast

Going back to the radio call, it's not necessarily the calmness of his voice that doesn't sit right with me, but the calmness of the transmission overall. There was a gale warning, with seas...

Re: Sailboat missing off CA coast

The thing about pinpointing it, if it were a hoax from another vessel, is that there are numerous ships off the coast of California at all times. You can check here to see what's there right now:

Re: Sailboat missing off CA coast

I do apologize for bringing up the possibility that this may be a hoax. As bad as that would be, it would actually be preferable in this situation, considering the conditions out there and what...

Re: Sailboat missing off CA coast

The distress call does not sound distressed to me. Not like someone who is about to jump into the cold Pacific and taking along two young children. Any other impressions?

I'm on the fence about...

It now seems that the report about the warship on its way was false... The USS Momsen is on its way home, not to rescue these folks. gCaptain has retracted that story as an error. That's too bad...

No, not old. We bought them just before the trip so they were less than 12 months old. We checked all the expire dates before leaving and we (or least, I) checked often to see that the green...

I read that. Even with a full moon, the sea at night is pitch black. Clear skies do not mean calm waters. In a sailboat at night, when a wave rises higher than you are, it is like a wall of...

I joined just to post in response to those putting down the captain and crew. The seas were bad enough to disable a sailboat and overturn a liferaft. When Laura was sadly separated from the crew,...
