Re: Pulley suprise

Not to derail the thread, but I thought this was an appropriate place for this old "workers comp accident form."

Dear Sir:

I am writing in response to your request for additional information...

Re: Fitting Punishment?

Hrm. Now I'm considering adding the coffee-maker to the list of equipment to always have a spare available.

As for your crew: the next few times he needs to dump the dregs overboard you might...

Learning navigation while land-locked?

I was recently reading the "21st Century Seamanship" thread, which got me thinking.

I've only sailed for a couple years, and those have been on a small lake in Kansas. So I've never bothered with...

Re: M-20 Scow - Help identify part

Huh - it looks like our boats may be rigged slightly differently. I assume the lines that lead to your backstay are cleated on the seat? Mine is similarly rigged, but instead of coming through the...

Re: M-20 Scow - Help identify part

It's been 4-5 years since I rigged mine, and since I haven't sailed in a couple years, I'm a little fuzzy myself. I went out there tonight to take a look, and I don't see a real obvious place to...

Re: M-20 Scow - Help identify part

Wow - I thought I was the only M-20 owner out there!

I haven't gotten to rig or sail my M-20 in a couple years, due to having a baby that's taken all my time. But it's a ton of fun to sail, so...

Re: Seagull behavior modification

That was my next step - I just needed to figure out how to import foxes into the neighborhood. ;)

Re: Seagull behavior modification

Lol - a seagull feeding you? That's a new one for me! ;)



Whether the blowgun is deadly depends on what ammo you use. You can buy sharp darts meant for hunting, or metal-studded ammo meant...

Re: Seagull behavior modification

But I think you're missing out on how fun blowguns are! There's something rewarding about being able to peg something 20-30' away with such a simple, silent, and relatively harmless "weapon." And...

Re: Seagull behavior modification

Not sure if a small (cheap) blowgun would be illegal in RI, but it would be worth a shot. A relatively short one (about 1.5' long or so) is quite accurate, and you can shoot any number of...

I guess that depends on how old the IDs have to be to be considered "obsolete." I joined 5 years ago, and was fairly active for a couple years. Then I had a daughter, and as a result, I haven't...

I'm not entirely sure how that specific flap works, so you may be right. But if the scupper is always open (not a close-able flap), the water moving past it actually creates a vacuum, which will...

I only daysail a dingy, so this may not be applicable, but I'm wondering if you couldn't use the equivalent of a scupper modification over the exterior portion of the tube?
