Re: Towing your dinghy.

I'm about to experiment with towing a Portland Pudgy. Many users report them to be much more stable under tow than inflatables. It doesn't change the concern with tow lines and bad weather, but I may...

Re: Florida waterfront property

It's not for really deep keels, for certain. Mine draws 4.75, and my last one was 5.25. There's a Westsail here that draws nearly 6', but I think he can only get out a couple of times a year.

Re: Florida waterfront property

Check out Hernando Beach, Hudson, and New Port Ritchie on the Gulf coast. All three have waterfront "canal" neighborhoods that are relative bargains.

Re: Vetus Ursus Manual Windlass

No. I purchased it for my Contest 32 ketch, but never installed it. My CSY 33 came with a decent Simpson Lawrence Tiger, so no need to keep this one.

Re: There is a special place in hell for SOB's that do not secure their halyards

I salute you, Sir. This made me laugh. I only had one tour in the Sandbox, but 35 years on submarines taught me the same thing.

Volvo Penta 2003 Core

This engine was made in 1997, but never installed until 2014. When I purchased it, it was still in factory packing crates. I put 500 hours on it, but it suffered damage when the raw-water pump seals...

Re: Good Bluewater Boat for female

I'm deliberately avoiding essays and directly answering the question you asked.


I would consider either a Baba 30 or a Nor'sea 27. They are rugged, stout, stylish bluewater vessels in a comfy...

Re: Lifting my engine out with the boom

This was true on my engine lifting event. Trouble was, the winches (or maybe me) wasn't strong enough to pull in the topping lift while it was carrying the weight of the engine. I ran 4x4 beams...

Re: CSY 33

No, the $25K one was a different CSY 33 in the Tampa area. But truthfully, as far as the fundamentals go, it was in many respects a better buy than the one I bought. I'm happy with my new boat, and...

Unless something has radically changed, the controlling height east of the lake is the Port Mayaca RR bridge, at 49'.
