Re: Crew of SV 'Elle' Abandon Ship

and real easy to make.

shred one pound of cheddar cheese (mild, sharp, whatever you like). put a can of beer in a pot and slowly warm it up (don't boil). slowly add the cheese and let it melt, stirring all the time. a teaspoon of dry mustard gives it a nice flavor. when melted, pour it over toast. that's it.

Tried that off Hatteras one night in a good blow. 47 ft boat with in mast furling wouldnt heave to properly. It would head up slightly , but spent 80% of the time beam on to the seas which were big enough to be breaking over the boat causing all normally watertight hatches to leak. I think I'd try to head downwind with a bit of rag in the bow. Not sure without steering...

You would have to wedge yourself pretty much since the next thing coming would be your boat knocked down and rolled over.

Heaving too in prolonged heavy weather is often not an option in a small boat.

Not all boats heave too well. Some will not, even with proper steering.

What was the boat anyway?

Re: Crew of SV 'Elle' Abandon Ship

Hey, I want that chocolate rabbit cake recipe that can be cooked in the galley. Can I substitute chicken? BTW we think the floats came off a dredging operation. Just waiting to snare a merchant ship I suppose.

You can't! Each time we tried, the rabbit felt offended and would not talk to us for weeks.

Recent copy of Wooden Boat has an article on how to heave to. In it they suggest using a drogue off the bow if the boat won't heave to otherwise.

I have run up a small hanked on sail onto my back stay to get her to point up better. But I don't know what I'm doing.

Thats a neat idea. Another gem extracted from the mines of CF. That is two in as many days. Going to have to surf with a notebook at my side.

You can also try and rig a wind surf mast on your tail for a jigger...
