Re: Single-handed tips and tricks

Actually I think it is one of the most useful tips so far.

Speaking of one hand, I recommend a pee bottle and a strict rule never to pee over the side while single handing. It's too much of a...

Re: Boat sank at the dock

Sorry to hear about your loss. I went through something similar recently and my general advice is to pull up a chair. This is going to take a while. Months. Several months. Also be the squeaky...

Re: Microscope

I'm assuming you're too much of a purist for this idea, but I saw versions of this at the American Telemedicine Conference in Baltimore this year. It was impressing the dermatologists, so don't...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Thanks Gary, you're making me blush. :o Oh, you mean the fermenter. :D

It's a bit taller and wider than a 5 gallon bucket. My formosa had a cavernous lazarette locker. My Nauticat has even more...

Re: Why are wheels so big?

Good memory. ;) Yes, it was me, but I also found the adjustment valve, right under the hub of the wheel (within easy reach) which changes how many turns it takes to move the rudder. This...

Re: I hate boats...

$14K to un-do the damage done by the riggers.
$25K for engine investigation, removal, rebuild, and reinstall.

Sorry SafeCo. :(

Re: Suppose you ran around on a falling tide

Been there, done that.

Rowing out a kedge anchor 90deg perpinicular to your boat, tying the rode to your mainmast halyard, and cranking like a ba$tard on the winch worked for me. I was able to...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

For the hectic cockpit consider making an extra hatchboard with your cheap tablet mounted to it in a waterproof case. You could make it up for under 300 dollars and it'll be secure, in view, under a...

Re: Boat Us conducts anchor tests

I, for one, was happy to see the Mantus anchor in a big-named published test for once. Seems like they're catching on.

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Like it or not, Hunter Hatred is a real thing. It's a meme of sorts that may or may not have any foundation in reality. It's a little like the vitriol that is always raised when a Macgregor 26 is...

Re: Looking for a source of (first-aid) Medical Supplies

Moore medical is good but thanks all for the tip about amazon having the goods but cheaper.

I noticed this as well. So, are the owners foodies? Any other design treasures in the galley you can share with us?

Re: What do you do for food on a day cruise?

For me it depends, and food tastes vary so much, what works for me, possibly won't apply to you at all. I'm a middleweight foodie, and I tend to want to eat better when out on the boat than when at...
