Re: Best aft master berth on under 50' boat?

An island queen without lee clothes is a nightmare underway. The pullman can be just as bad.

I did a delivery of a Hylas 46 to St Baths from Newport, RI. It was impossible to sleep in any berth....

Re: Help me teach my wife navigation

My navigation courses are 8 classes of 3 hours each. The last hour is time to complete the assignments. I have taught classes as large as 22 - that was a bit much.

Re: Sailing Qualification Guide

As someone who teaches 4 different standards (see below) I would be interested, but I get enough spam as it is.

As an aside, new legislation in Canada requires that any organization using our...

Some studies (I will attempt to find them) have shown in a windward pick up the boat drifts faster than the MOB.

Re: Anyone wear a PLB?

Joy

With the MOB to leeward, they are protected somewhat from wind and waves.

The pressure of the water pushes them away from the hull - not far.

Re: Anyone wear a PLB?

I have a PLB that I use when I am within 150 miles (GMDSS area 2).

I think the AIS system is a better choice as the boat, off of which you just fell is close by. They are more expensive.

Re: Fitting place for this post....

30 degrees off the wind is actually quite good. Be happy with that. Your trim must have been very good.

Docking under sail - be ecstatic with that.

Re: Vocabulary help - Two Years Before the Mast

That is an alternate spelling. Some boating terms has apostrophes to show where letters are omitted, like foc'sle = forecastle.

Bosun is actually spelled boatswain.
