Re: Ignorant Semanship

Thanks SKALASHN and for the most part I agree and do my best to ignore the idiots. This was a case of one such idiot who just pushed it too far. I can remember my first year up in Georgian Bay and...

Re: Ignorant Semanship

Sailorboy1, I can appreciate your viewpoint. I was clearly and unquestionably in the right. The powerboater should not only have given way but slowed down as well. The buoy was to the right and...

Re: Scope/Rhode in a crowded anchorage

I agree and support this statement - BTW: I have an anchor drag alarm so if my anchor drags, I'll take appropriate action. Then I'll decide if I need a different "miracle" anchor.
