Re: Fender hangers...too many choices!

Without disagreeing with anything that had already been said, and all of it is sound advice, I still want to point out that the worst case is trapping the fender under the dock. The forces are...

Re: Fender hangers...too many choices!

And so... Maybe we're making too much out of nothing. When has that ever happened?

Re: looking for crew 1 person - July 26 to Aug 3rd LA-Catalina-SD-LA

Babba, I thought about this very carefully. It comes down to this. Being self-employed is no fun when you work for a workaholic. I haven't allowed myself a vacation in two years, for the false...

Re: If you don't sail...you're a freakin' moron.

Yay, on all of that. One word came to mind: BumFuzzles!, to be followed shortly by a partial list of the must haves. Oddly, my meds made the short list this time.

But maybe you're right. It has...

Re: speed vs wind

On a broad reach, a sail powered vehicle can exceed wind speed. It's been done on ice and salt flats or paved surfaces, but to my knowledge not on water. Or maybe only on land. I remember reading...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

LOL. "Wooden boat", to me, as a concept, has wooden timbers and a planked hull. Plywood is made with wood, but the concept is really that of composites.

Well, there you have it. We went the full spectrum from naturalism, to reflexive self-offense, to leering lechery. It's a wonder that we find enough common ground to converse at all, for all this...

Do you mean a tucked reef knot?
