Re: Charter fleet ownership

Reputation: Ok, well, lets start by separating Moorings from everyone else. If you want to place a boat in Charter Moorings is the most reputable. I won’t say all the others are bad. I’ve seen the...

Re: Charter fleet ownership

Chartering is a great deal for the charter companies and a bad deal for the boat owners. Would you like an article on how the charter companies screw over their customers? I didn't think so.

Re: sailing / passing another sailboat etiquette

When doing this upwind, I sometime trim the boat to sail itself and go sit up in the bow or duck below--fun to watch them when they don't see anyone on deck. I do the same thing when I have kids on...

Re: Best states for sailing and boating???

San Francisco kicks ass as a venue. Fantastic summer sailing and year round sailing. If you like to race, it will never get old. The yacht club parties are the best in the works--the San Francisco...

Re: Balsa cored hulls

I was responding to the comment that cored hulls were not a good, or as good as cored hulls. I felt the comment was nonsense comparing apples with oranges. I responded in kind.

Re: Balsa cored hulls

That depends on the hull. Would you rather have a typical solid glass hull that is 1/4" or 5/16" thick, or a cored hull with 3/8" balsa sandwiched between glass with a total thickness of two inches?

Re: heeling free kite rig inventor introducing himselves

He can't tack upwind with a kite. It is a down wind sail.

You might want to change that block to one with a swivel in it, so that line runs freely and not chafing.

Re: MISSION: West Coast to Hawaii

I have done many deliveries. If you are looking for a captain I am available. What kind of boat is it? And it is not clear where you are starting from and going to.

Re: Transpac newbie, advice?

One thing I try to avoid is a sleeping bag. Even on the winter trips south, I leave it home. I figure it is only two days and then shorts and Tshirts, so why bring one? I'd rather have long johns...

Re: CDI Furler jams

I didn't make that joke up. It does fit rather well for a poorly made boat designed to appeal to those that don't know better. What other small sailboat carries a 50 hp outboard--5HP is more...
