Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Mark is right on the money. Nobody learns anything when the "politically correct" police start deleting valid opinion and speculation.

Whether it was a factor here or not, a leaking boat is a...

I think you have a right to say whatever you like. :) I dont think its too critical for you to say you think some are too critical of Charlottes "hysteria". Mind you, I dont remember reading that...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Bilge pumps - I can *easily* clear 70 gallons a day with my hand pump. If *that* was their distress then they were very lucky to not encounter real weather or a real leak.

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

My preventer is just two bits of rope that come down to the amidships mooring cleats, not the toe rail.

Then at the boom I have some very thin lanyard, 96 kg breaking strain, thats looped twice....

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

A gybe when the main is prevented puts the boat on its ear. Or racing with a shy kite and it broaches puts the boat on its ear.
Both are bloody scary to the uninitiated! Until someone lets go the...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

It is - to me - a riddle.

Even if the boom was vanged or prevented to the toe rail how does that damage the hull to deck joint?

If the connection was though-bolted I don't see how it could...

Well, that's a nice romantic, idealized vision of the past, but you might want to read up a bit on the history of professional journalism in America. A century or more ago, newspapers generally...

Re: Florida is at it again

I know Marathon is a godsend for certain people, but I spent a month in Marathon in my boat, and to me, the Marathon mooring field was as close as you can come to a floating mobile home trailer park.

Re: Malaria

Yes, I learned to sail on Lake Guntersville and have seen the bats fly several times. Still make annual trips to that part of Alabama to go caving.

Re: Malaria

I was on Guadalcanal for 2 years. At the time there were two basic strains: falciparum and vivax. I got the falci after blowing off the meds for 6 months and relying solely on G&Ts (much more fun).

Re: Crab Pots in Channels, oh My!

I am all for supporting watermen, but they should not be putting pots in the channels. That would be like a farmer planting corn in the middle of the highway.
