Re: Electrical system

Actually, you can just get buy by knowing you limitations.
You now know you trolling motor will only get you about 4 hours of motoring. Your OB will also have limited range or time of use.

Re: Motion sickness question. Am I crazy?

I always got seasick on fishing boats. Hot weather, bobbing up and down. Would even get sick before the first dive on week long dive trips in the Caymans, which I took twice a year for 10 yrs....

Re: finally!!

First thing is that beer needs a PFD so it doesn't get lost overboard.
Congrats and smart move to keep it flat until your girlfriend gets use to the healing. Lots of time we sail with just the jib...

Re: $1500 Catalina 27

"I guess someone has stolen the drop boards and the exterior teak work"
I'm sure whoever stole the teak did not plug the holes to prevent core damage and water damage to the interior. Sounds like a...

Re: Winterizing Questions?

Hey Ken,
Sounds like you are thinking about Mariner's Marina? Great location. Not as crowded as around Forked River and very close to the GSP.

Re: Sailing an ipad.

iPad and Navionics. I tried the Gamin Blue and other apps but like Navionics better. Especially like the way it saves tracks and they can be e-mailed to my Evernote account. I then add the track to...

Re: Favorite iPad cover?

I second the Otterbox case. I tried the Lifeproof but didn't think it offered enough protection from the rough handling on the boat. I returned it and got the Otterbox. I'm more worried about it...

Re: Newbie renting a keelboat - dumb idea?

I sail the BB and took an ASA 101 class in Bayville. I am not surprised you cannot get a rental without a keelboat certification. Renters are probably more concerned about you damaging a $80k boat...

Re: Outboard difficult to raise

I had a 4hp on a 17' boat that I could not raise the bracket on due to weight and having to lean out to far. I put a strap on it that allowed me to stand straight up while lifting it. That worked...

My boat was next to a guy who had moved up from a 25 to 30' boat. He and his fiancé were planning on living aboard. They lived in an apartment so over the winter they marked out their kitchen and...

Re: Just set sail

We sail our O'day 25 on the Barnegat Bay. As the winds increase we reef early and frequently sail with jib only. This helps to keep the boat flat. If my wife is not with me I will push it...

Re: what is this 21' trailer sailor?

You say the owner knows nothing about it. Does he have the title? If not, beware.

Re: Sailing in the Northeast; need some advice!

Ditto to the BB. Last year I lost more days to strong winds than to windless days. Good thing about the sea breeze is if it is blowing strong, it will normally calm down a bit before sunset.

Re: Sunfish dry mooring near Phildelphia?

It might be stretching your 1 hour limit but Union Lake in Millville NJ is a state owned 1,000 acre lake with an active sailing club. Use to have lots of Sunfish, you might want to check into it.

Re: Articles about dredging in Barnegat Inlet

Neat articles on the inlet dredging.
Here's part of a news release my marina sent out, which may be of interest to some of you. We're on Double Creek but I think the thin water is further in since...

Re: New to using a slip

At our marina almost all boats leave their lines. Most set their lines to the length needed so they just drop the loop over the boat cleats when they return. Transients use empty slips signified by...

Re: Outboard advice needed - dealer charged install price

I put a Yamaha 9.9 on my 4200 lb O'day 25. I appreciated the power when running head on into heavy chop with 20+ wind. A big difference between the Tohatsu and Yamaha is that the Yamaha has the...

Re: Maine expensive winter storage

Just for comparison, the Barnegat Bay NJ marina I am in charges $795 for mast up winter storage. Includes cradle, haul, power wash and launch. 25' O'day.
I thought that was pretty reasonable. Not...

Re: Flying Scot - did I buy the wrong boat?

Re: Great Bay, NJ and the Great Bay Marina

I took my ASA101 at the school at Cedar Creek Marina. I liked the location and it seemed like a friendly group. It would be an option if we ever want to move further north on the BB.
