Re: Quick meals or snacks?

I thought ramen noodles could only be made in a microwave in a dorm room.

Re: Funding retirement boat

Selling the house because you don't want to live there anymore is one thing. Selling the house to fund a boat purchase--at retirement age after making a lifetime of mortgage payments--is another.

Re: Funding retirement boat

I don't like any of those options if you're talking about traditional "retirement" -- i.e. 60+ end of career move.

Turning any of your retirement investments into a boat seems like a bad move. ...

Re: .25 gal/hr. Really???

I would want a well cared for, simple, small diesel inboard (like my Yanmar 1 GM) for a long distance motoring trip that is mainly on protected waters.

You just can't beat the reliability and...

Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

Check out Bellingham Washington and the nearby marinas/communities. You sound like you'd fit in a lot better there, than some of the cities on the East Coast being recommended to you.

Re: .25 gal/hr. Really???

My Yanmar 1 GM, I believe, sips less than .25 gal/hour at around 2500 rpm.

I have not formally taken measurements, but honestly I would not be surprised if it actually uses less than .25 gal/hour....

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

I think age has a lot more to do with it than gender.

We are 35 (me) 33 (her) and 5 (the boy) and have zero "luxury" aboard our 30+ year old boat. A place to sleep, a way to go to the bathroom,...

re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

We won't move up in size until we can buy the boat without financing. I've always had a thing against financing luxury items. Wouldn't even consider doing it.

Re: Who should pay?

Ha ha. Keep telling yourself that.

The databases that are kept and shared in the insurance industry are downright scary and disturbing.

I don't necessarily disagree--especially in this instance--but just because everything is crystal clear in your mind, does not mean that is the reality of the situation.

Re: Who should pay?

I generally agree with the consensus that both rafted boats are responsible for their own boat's damage from a third boat's wake.

However, I think the consent to be rafted to by another boat has...

Re: East Coast Marina or Mooring

Re: Avoid "diegoscustommarine" on eBay for custom canvas

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Thankfully, I don't think this family will be getting "back out there" any time soon. I mean, sorta hard to testify from the middle of the Pacific. That lawsuit and all.

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

When someone states that the family should repair the boat and be on their way, it makes no difference.

Context is everything.

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

You are missing a very large part of this story.

For one, the boat sunk to the bottom of the Pacific some 900 miles off the coast of Mexico while the family was taken back to California on a Navy...

Re: Making it comfortable for her

Re: single-hand: best time raise/lower jib?

On my 26' foot boat I often raise my main at the mooring--reefing if I feel it will be needed--and the genoa is on a furler. I unfurl that as soon as I am underway, sometimes under motor power,...

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

Well, I think it's impossible for sailing to be sexist. "Sailing" is not a person capable of bias or prejudice.

But of course there are people who sail who are sexist. One definition of sexism...

Re: Who is divorced because of sailing?

Never could have bought the boat if my wife wasn't fully for it. Way too big of a money and time commitment for it to be a solo venture for only one of us. We also don't buy cars, houses, or take...
