Re: The Chicken is on the market

I must be out of touch. What makes it a legendary boat? I have never heard of it. It might be an interesting boat, and is obviously and expensive one, but legendary?

Re: Would you work 1 additional year to go from $50k to $150k boat

Mine has been a cursing kitty at times.

My reaction is that I would not want any brand new boat since you get killed on the depreciation as you pull away from the delivery dock. If you can't see...

Back in the water in Grenada

Ainia is back to being a sailboat after 10 months of sitting on the hard only costing us money. Not wildly impressed with Grenada Marine if anyone is coming this way. It seems fairly expensive and...

Re: Sailing in the North Atlantic

Saw the northern lights on an overnight passage up Lake Huron in July one year. Not that far north (around 44N)

Re: Help me teach my wife navigation

I would let her pick up navigation and other skills as she sails. It will come naturally. Learning in the abstract is often not very successful.

Re: Sailboat interior seaworthy design

Don't get any vane based on the assumption that you can get parts anywhere, other than from the manufacturer. In less remote places you might be able to find a machine shop to fabricate something,...

Re: Passage thru Panama Canal

Not really, we were in a raft with a 50 foot catamaran in the middle and a 33ish (Ericson or similar) on the other side. The cleats on the 33 did not look up to snuff so the lines were taken to the...

Re: Passage thru Panama Canal

I think the way it might work is you go to Columbia, get a degree in the right field; make a bunch of money so you can afford a boat that would take you to Chile via whatever route you want - but you...

Re: Passage thru Panama Canal

Not sure what Colombia (it has an 'o') has to do with Patagonia.

Re: Sailboat interior seaworthy design

If you are planning the boat for offshore use, i would suggest that places be made up with a particular function in mind. Having dual function often means that neither function is done well. For...

Re: Team Vestas Wind grounded in the VOR

I think one difference between a race and an ordinary passage has been hinted at here but not said explicitly. If you are in a long distance, pro race like this the first three (or ten) things on...

Re: Team Vestas Wind grounded in the VOR

We check the entire route at large scale when we set a distant waypoint. When we are on the passage, if we need to change course for some reason, we repeat the process. When we are sailing we have...

Re: Passage thru Panama Canal

We did not use an agent and don't speak Spanish. All the people working the canal speak decent English. Between three boats we had enough long lines and substantial fenders. You want to go lock...

Re: Team Vestas Wind grounded in the VOR

Don't disagree with you Jon, but when we are doing a long ocean passage on a Navionics chart I layout the waypoint, could be 2000 mils away, at a small scale and the move along the rhumb line created...

Re: New EU Schengan Visa

Re: New EU Schengan Visa

Anything would be an improvement. I think they should be encouraging people to come and spend money in their depressed economies. Mark are you going in that direction?

Re: Team Vestas Wind grounded in the VOR

Something seemed a bit odd in the video. They were on port tack sailing free when they hit. I assume they would still be in the trades there and should have been on starboard going from South Africa...

Re: Lake Ontario rendezvous

Re: Team Vestas Wind grounded in the VOR

Damn, that would spoil your day (year, forever). We managed to avoid that shoal on our way to Mauritius. It is pretty big and well-marked.

Re: Lake Ontario rendezvous

You can add me tentatively to the list. We are not out of the water, well actually we are, but in Grenada. Going there next week to get ready to launch. Bringing the boat to North America by spring...

Re: monocrystalline vs plycrystalline solar panels

When I was looking, I found out that mono panels are not as badly affected by shading than poly. Even the shadow of a shroud across a poly panel takes away something like 30% of your power. I ended...

Re: Leaving the alps by sail
