Re: Serious BBQ

We have a Magma kettle on the stern rail and a Kuuma rectangular grill mounted on the dock.

We pretty much use the Magma for burgers, dogs and brats. It runs very hot so you really have to keep an...

Re: Maybe smaller is not so bad?

Denise where will your new "home waters" be? Are you thinking of kayaking the upper river again or lake sailing up around Nockamixon? (yeah I probably spelled it wrong).

It's amazing how many...

Re: Maybe smaller is not so bad?

That is one pretty little lady.

I just don't know if I'd want to be out on the Delaware in her on July 4th weekend with all the power boat idiots :eek:

Which brings me back around to why not...

Re: Captains License Downside

Wow.

Bubb I missed this way back when. I hope your wife has finally found some relief, and I hope the SOB in the SeaRay is no longer on the water. What a bastard.

Re: How to get free internet on your boats.

Exactly. Because the barrier is so high there are few companies and little in the way of real pricing competition. Over the years there have been accusations of pricing collusion but I don't think...

Re: Bad Survey - Sue for Return of Deposit?

I'm with Denise here - I smell bullsh!t

Even someone who's not mechanically inclined can tell the difference between a "practically new" diesel and one that's 35 years old.

Re: US Approves Ferry Service to Cuba

I was in Romania both before and after the dictator and was amazed at how quickly some things changed - and at how some things never did.

Re: How to get free internet on your boats.

But there is no value add.

The problem I have is I paid for the phone. Until very recently your only choice in the U.S. was to buy the phone through your carrier. Your carrier loads software onto...

Re: Maybe smaller is not so bad?

Denise,
I didn't know Old Town made power boats. I thought they just made canoes.

Were the Pen Yan's wood hull runabouts around 15-16 feet? I think that's what my friend's dad had for a summer...

Re: Found This Bristol for Sale - Thoughts for New Sailors?

Nancy, for the kind of sailing you described the Catalina 30 isn't a bad choice. I know you've been looking a while but I'm not sure if you've looked at them. A quick YachtWorld search turned up 32...

Re: US Approves Ferry Service to Cuba

Suffice it to say I've seen poverty in my travels. Cuba is not the only country with poor people who lack what we would call basic necessities. If you look you can find poverty in the US.
