ASA vs. US Sailing

Ahoy, cfreund. Both are good and are generally accepted. US Sailing probably carries a little more weight and prestige as they are the governing body of sailing in the U.S. Check their web site and...

Cold beer please!

Ahoy, pirateofcapeann. I spent 15 years overseas working in the oil patch. I learned to drink beer at ambient from the Scots and and the English. It was common there then (sixties and seventies). It...

??C30 Points of sail, trim and tuning??

Ahoy, boardroom. It sounds like you equate heeling with speed. It is an illusion. A boat sails faster and better on her feet. Twenty knots of wind is a lot. Remember that the pressure on the sails...

terminology question

Ahoy, petith. The reason sailing language is so strange and colorful is because it developed in the olden days when ships carried men of many nationalities, many of whom could not understand each...

Origo stoves

I found that a cast iron pot with a heavy lid, and a pressure cooker both make pretty good ovens in a pinch. I baked bread, meat, and whatever in them.

Origo stoves

Ahoy, pirateofcapeann. I lived aboard a 24 footer. I thought that was tight. If you lived aboard a 22 footer you are a good man, Charlie Brown.

Classes?

Ahoy, Denise. You don''t need an ASA certification, but if you intend to bareboat, it will help you get accepted as a client although they will still quiz you and maybe have you do a little sailing...

Houston/Clear Lake TX

Ahoy, windship 36. We''d appreciate it if you wouldn''t use the message boards for sales promotion. We don''t do that and Sailnet doesn''t allow it. This is just a sailor to sailor forum.

Battery Winter Storage

Ahoy, Duane. You are right about the impact of cold on batteries. That is why battery makers make so much ado about "cold cranking amps". It is heat that is death to batteries. Cold does slow...

Hull Speed

If a boat has a waterline length of 25 feet on her feet and you heel that boat such that there is now 27 feet in the water, you still have waterline length. The formula doesn''t specify how you get...

Ahoy, Tormand. Re: Your July 14th.
Don''t get out there and have to remember something. Especially if you''ve been thinking. Think of lee as leeeeve. If you wanted to leave something, you would...

Hull Speed

Duh. One assumes a standard hull form for discussion purposes. One assumes the boat isn''t round, square, diamond shaped, etc. Fat, skinny, the parameters shift, but they don''t change. Ocean racers...

Excessive weather helm?

Makes sense to me Frenzy. If the Center of Effort (COE) of the sails is forward of the Center of Lateral Resistance (CLR) then the boat will weathervane by the bow requiring lee helm to hold it up....

Definition of "Yacht"

I agree Sailormon6. Definitions change over time with use. The average person who has no yacht and is not around them only knows them by the press when newspapers, and they are associated with rich...

Definition of "Yacht"

Re: Yacht. Jeff is right. A yacht is a vessel used for private cruising, racing, or other noncommercial purposes. It is derived from the early Danish jaght which was short for jaghtschip which meant...

Hull Speed

You are right. For non planing hulls, the hull speed is limited by its waterline length. It has absolutely nothing to do with the wind or what point you are sailing on. Boats are slower to weather...

Centerboard Position

I''m with you, Jeff. When I was in my late twenties or early thirties, I would have jumped all over such a sail. Not now. Knees, back, shoulder, etc. Time takes its toll. And I freeze at much higher...

When does BigRed56 get out of jail?
