Re: Why a racer for cruising discussion...

I do have a tv, I need to keep an eye on the news to make my living.

I am a minimalist in that I make it a point to come up with simple solutions throughout my life (professional and private). I...

Re: Why a racer for cruising discussion...

I was going to write a point-by-point response to the long list you posted. But after having spend forty minutes responding point by point, I realised I was only about a third through your post.

Re: Good Deck Shoes?

He's not talking about normal crocs, but actual shoes from croc. Click his link and see the shoes.

Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort

When did I say it wasn't much of a base of knowledge? I accused you of not understanding what I wrote - that has no bearing on how much experience you have. And did I call you a peasant? No, I...

Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort

You ARE aware that I have REPEATEDLY said we're saying the same thing, only with different wording, right? I mentioned that when Perry was unable to see that. He is now aware that I'm not disagreeing...

Re: barnacle growth on feathering prop

Some people are reporting good results covering the prop with permanent marker (yes, those things you write with). If it works, I wonder for how long it works, and why it works. Is it the xylene or...

Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort

I hope you're aware that steeping onto the scoop is not the same as the whole hull immersing?



Apparently not.

Step onto the stern of a skerry cruiser or otherwise relatively slim boat...

I wasn't disagreeing with you on the whole. I was making sure you understood that we were talking about the same thing, albeit with different wording. It's not exactly rocket science, regardless of...

Oh, I do. It is you who fail to understand that I'm describing the same thing you're describing. Perhaps you should read the posts again: The only difference between our explanations is that you're...

Re: Gen-set vs. engine

Nope, seems like the way to do it. It's the same thing with inverters. I have two inverters on my smallish boat, Both are small, but one is smaller than the other, so I don't have as much "overhead"...

Re: Person overboard

Oh, I missed this post. So, basically, if she hadn't clutched her phone while "getting ready" she might have stayed on board.

Re: Person overboard

Suunto has a watch with that MOB feature, and you can get MOB bracelets/thingies as it is. But a remote for the autopilot a la KNE would be great.

Well, as long as she wasn't p***ed when she did.


Okay, I'm out of p***-related comments :o

Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort

I think you mean PCP.



LOL, no, I got it.


I think "Archimedes" when I think that. We can even measure the weight of boobs that way :laugher

In any case, the more "spread" the...

Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort

Yes, very true.



I forgot I read that. I think I missed it because it's as if people have a hard time realising that modern design is more efficient.



I agree.

Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort

I am aware of that. But as I said, if the hull is already at the design max, it doesn't really matter at that point. I also used the example of an old design, but made from lighter and stronger...

Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort

This argument has always struck me as awkward at best. Such a boat, but built with lightweight, but stronger, materials, and with a lighter (but equally stronger) rig, which would then need less...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Thanks, I will charter one before making my mind up in the end. That Challenge 42 is just awful. I mean, I get why they want more space below, but look at how much of extra wave slamming potential...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Those looks nice and some really nice interiors. I'd prefer not to buy a Dragonfly, though - They're a dime a dozen around my parts (I'm in Denmark, so that's natural).

Man, I never thought I'd be...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I'm not really in love with catamarans. I like trimarans. I think it has to do with it being a "proper" (singular) boat in the middle, whereas a catamaran is like two boats tied together. Not very...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Hadn't thought of resale value at all. Every boat (or anything else) I buy is always "the one and final one". I'm an idiot when it comes to thinking of resale values of anything. It's weird, because...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Thanks,

Yes, it's a bit dearer from new than the keel boat I talked about in the other thread. I'm not "rich", but I do have a bit of money at present.

The keelboat we discussed in the other...
