Re: Buying, Fixing, and Equipping a Monohull

Been looking at buying a new bucket...cant seem to make a decission..
One has a short fin around the bottom and the other has more of a longer edged around the bottom..
And one seems to me much heavier than the other..
Are there pros and cons to each or do they do much the same?

I've heard stories of the heavier bucket to be more stable and easier to handle but what I'm really looking for in a bucket is one I grab and use in a moments notice..
Am I wrong to want the lighter bucket with the fin..?????

Re: Buying, Fixing, and Equipping a Monohull

get the cadillac with fins and running boards....
mine are 3 gallon feed buckets--allegedly indestructible--and i have purple, shocking pink, and violet. multiple uses--seasick, stowage for emergency tools for engine use(doesnt matter if they get a lil oily for a minuet) dish washing, clothing wash, body wash, hair wash, bubba scares, all kinds of lil uses for smaller than 5 gallon buckets--cleaning off fishie parts when cleaning fishies....many uses.... very important to make sure things on board have more than one use....

Re: Buying, Fixing, and Equipping a Monohull

Hi...I know I'm a bucket newbie and I'm still 22 years away from buying my first bucket but I think I should buy my buckets now. There is an Australian bucket that guarantees to hold more water than any other bucket. What do guys think? Good or bad?
Others tell me there is no need for a bucket. That it is a false sense of security. Should I go cruising in 22 years without one?
Then there is another bucket that acts as a weapon in case I am boarded while I am cruising. Is that a good one?
Does Hunter make a bucket?
P.S...Is my spelling ok?

Re: Buying, Fixing, and Equipping a Monohull

Personally, i'll take a 45 caliber bucket with a ten shot clip. Buckets witH delta anchors are also useful

If it was my bucket, I'd be protecting it with a Glock and 2 Rocna anchors.

Obviously, you don't really care too much about the safety of your buckets!

The pirates are going to rape them while they make you watch!

Re: Buying, Fixing, and Equipping a Monohull

I have been planning for my five year plan for over twenty years and am almost ready to start it.

What is a bucket?

Re: Buying, Fixing, and Equipping a Monohull

My advice

Buy a SMALL dingy and learn to sail it...

Do a little research BEFORE you ask questions...

Then, hopefully, you'll KNOW the value of the opinion of others when they differ, and they will...

good luck

Re: Buying, Fixing, and Equipping a Monohull

Didn't all this start with some wiseass asking the "brightest and best" here on CF to tell him what he needed to go cruising?

While buckets are very important and sailing without one is not easy - I would suggest that a considerable store of beer is higher up the priority list
