Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Well, that was my point... He hasn't gone anywhere yet, but his budget has now been ratcheted up to $700/month... :-)

Re: Urgent shaft seal question

One suggestion I'll make, if the OP does proceed with the hose clamp solution, is to at least replace that perforated hose clamp he currently has in place with a solid one, such as those from AWAB:

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

You mean, like the guy who started this thread?

:-))

I've seen my fair share of low budget cruisers out there, and I say Good on 'Em... However, many seem to make it only as far as each month...

Re: Pimp my dinghy!

That would seem to depend upon where you are, to some extent...

Re: The trend in new cruising boats....

You're a lucky man, indeed...

On the other hand, I have the feeling that the percentage of Sense-boats that are ever or are routinely sailed through the night will remain fairly low... :-)

Re: Rallies Gone Wrong

LOL! And, the Caribbean 1500 has been run for the past 25 years as a 'Public Service' to cruising sailors, absent any financial interest, their motives as Pure as the Driven Snow?

Damn, who knew?...

Good post, such candor is always of value in discussions such as this…

Re: Rallies Gone Wrong

You mean, like a significant percentage of the likely entrants in the Caribbean 1500?

Seriously, how can anyone make such a broad assertion? After a single offshore passage, some may have a very...

Re: The trend in new cruising boats....

Well, your first mistake is in assuming that SAILING actually has much of anything to do with the entire concept of "these new cruising boats"... :-)

The romantic notion of "Sailing" is merely the...

How would you like to deal with an 'issue' with this Leisure-Furl some dirty night, say, halfway down the rhumb line of the Caribbean 1500?

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Or, why they didn't "check before heading offshore" this time, as claimed to have done in the previous instances?
