Re: Dos and Don'ts ?

The absolute Best Advice I can give you being fairly new and have found this to save me repairs, and injury, is

If you even THINK about "should I do this or that?" such as furl a sail, put on my weather gear">foul weather gear, / jackline, life jacket,,, check a fitting etc etc, Then You Should DO IT!.
The other thing is I have yet to find any local weather reports that are even marginaly accurrate. Be your own weather man ( or woman) If its cloudy and you think it will rain, It will Rain and it will Blow,

Fl keeps getting hit by bad squalls and "No name " storms and the weather centers are clueless.

And last but most important, if your partner is not happy, you are not happy.

Fair Winds,
S/V Happy Ending

Re: Dos and Don'ts ?

do check very carefully deck fittings when filling tanks .
ie diesel goes in the one that says diesel!!!,,and water in the one that says water,though not allways on homebuilt boats!!!!!!!

Re: Dos and Don'ts ?

do not store gasoline,acetone,alchohol thinner below decks,apart from it being very explosive if it leaks in the engine compartment it can cause the diesel engine to race and destroy itself!!!

Re: Dos and Don'ts ?

There are only two rules to follow in sailing:

1. Always pick up your fenders after leaving the dock.

2. Never fly the Jolly Roger.

The rest is just commentary.

Re: Dos and Don'ts ?

The two rules in sailing are

1) the captain is always right

2) when the captain is wrong refer to rule number 1

Oh, and this one:
