Re: Just beginning to shop around... would love feedback/ideas...

Exclamation Concussions

Hello everyone,

I want to write this while I can. It has been a long time since I have been on Sailnet or anything electronic. I have not had a choice, honestly. Doc's orders and this is one of...

Re: Okay, I went and done did it.

FWIW, here's the one I purchased. I have not actually installed it yet, and I'll be looking at the battery terminals to see if there is some way to attach this directly to the negative terminal:

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

I'll look for good stuff, but honestly it's not very dramatic, since I didn't usually have the energy to shoot when there was drama going on. I wish I'd thought to put on the head-mount during one of...

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Shadowraiths, what you cite is mutiny verbiage (rockDAWG does like his verbiage) and reaction (pushing Jane away after she tried to get HIS satphone from me; tapping Harry on the nose a bit after the...

Anything is do-able and if you are doing it for fun it sounds like a great adventure. I will bet it will be one of the most expensive boats you ever buy though:laugher

Re: Jeanne Socrates

She had a lot to say about her trip.
My first question was "Why did she have to go through customs when she arrived back home." She busted out laughing saying she had asked customs the same thing...

Re: Docking for Dummies

I recommend finding a buoy near you in a place with little traffic and waves. If you cannot find one, make one with a fender. Spend an hour pretending it is your slip. Approach it from upwind, down...

Re: Boat Too Cheap to get a Buyer's Broker?

FWIW, readers will understand the post better - the right adjective is "documented", not "registered", and the result is a certificate of documentation, not a title. Registering and a title relate...

Re: Sailed my Walker Bay: Now some Qs

Rig the boat as you would sail it, and take it into knee deep water. Capsize it and get in. Repeat the above process without the yellow thingy and compare how much freeboard you have, or don't...

Re: Sailed my Walker Bay: Now some Qs

I have one, yet to sail it; but it seems to me they would be pretty fast. The floatation is good just to keep her afloat should you go over.. and you will.. go over that is.. sooner or later. :)...

Re: Motor vs Rowing inflatable dinghy...

Good for you. You don't need a motor on a hard dinghy. We've rowed for decades of coastal sailing(from Candada to the Bahamas).

It's good excercise(rowers arms don't do the double wave), it's a...

Re: Downside of living aboard

My 2 cents:

I have been living aboard a Columbia 28 for over 5 years, I say that because I can't remember how long is been without pulling out my boat title ;). At the time 28ft was all I could...

Re: Downside of living aboard

Couple endorsement of the above.

1. If your boat isn't equipped and prepared to sail, there is no point living aboard an actual boat. Get a houseboat.

2. You should equip your liveaboard...

Re: Help! Flys

Yep, that's the one. I have the screening on my boat, but so far I haven't had to use it. I put it on once to see if it would fit, and how difficult it was to install - nothing to it, and when I...

Re: Motor vs Rowing inflatable dinghy...

Glad to hear that you're rowing and that you're enjoying it too! I row, because I don't have an outboard, and I enjoy it sometimes. I do sometimes feel like I'm the only one left on the water using...

Re: Motor vs Rowing inflatable dinghy...

I have a Honda 4hp, 4 stroke with an integrated tank, 38lbs. It's quiet, no mixing of oil and it starts easily. It pushes our 6' Booth dinghy along at a scary pace.:D

Oh and it has neutral but no...
