Re: 1st time buyer: IP 350's - comparable boats?

One useful thing about this forum is that most people tell you what they're sailing and where. So you can look at the boat and see what it has and what they're doing with it.

Even here in the...

Re: Apparently sea shanties are a trending thing.

Two (in my opinion) really good recent movies are set in coastal towns and feature sea shanties, in case you're interested.

Re: Update on my trip, for those who may be curious :)

I enjoyed the update, Kelsey.

It's going a lot like one would expect the first cruise in a new boat would, and I knew you'd be resourceful in meeting the challenges.

Re: Cruising the Mountains of Vermont & NY

I sailed Lake Champlain once (back when there was still a bridge.)

Nice wind. Good beer.

How's the lamprey situation? All the boaters back then were complaining about them.

Re: PFD's?

Not to change the subject but chances are there'll be other people like you in that class. I met people I still sail with when I took ASA 106.

Re: Why Do We Make It So Hard Sounding

I for one appreciate the honesty here. I've definitely run into other on-board couples in which one member comments that the more experienced sailor is "always yelling" at them.

I've definitely...

Re: Finding Whales

Here you go

The first right whales of the year in Cape Cod Bay arrive about now. I see there's one that was sighted off Nantucket yesterday.

Re: Why Do We Make It So Hard Sounding

Good points, Dan. Except you're forgetting that lots of people on CF have taken literally _hundreds_ of people sailing to suck them into our dark and cabalistic existence. You get to see firsthand...

Re: Why Do We Make It So Hard Sounding

One thing I do on the Soling with guests who want to learn is show them how to use the feel of the tiller, the wind, and the sounds to sail with your eyes closed. In a boat like that, in fair...

Re: Sail condition - How do you tell?

I know places where you learn to sail in a Rhodes 19 or a J-22 or a Sonar 23 or (the best one in my biased opinion) a Soling 27. Those, especially the last three with the fixed keels, translate a lot...

Re: Why Do We Make It So Hard Sounding

Actually, this is true.

Everyone has different learning styles. Some people need structure. Some people need to read every one of these threads even if they already know how to do it because they...

Re: Sail condition - How do you tell?

If you're really looking for a learner, maybe another thing to do is to take an ASA 101 course at a sailing school that where a membership that costs half of what you were going to pay for that...

Re: 2020 Cruising Poll

Boating is one of the safest things you can do in a pandemic caused by an aerosolized virus. The aerodynamics of you cause particles in open air and a breeze to basically avoid the passages that...

I gotta move to Croatia. Boston has places where, during the peak months, it's $5,000 a month.

Re: Thoughts on this Van de Stadt 34?

Lorine and Oliver,

Welcome to the forum, and congratulations on the biggest hurdle: You both want to do this. Lots of couples never get that consensus. Lord knows I've been through some.

Re: What, really, is a rogue wave?

That guy is one of the best.

He never stops smiling. Even when he's seasick.

About the point where he builds a birdhouse, I was thinking, he gets it.

The other one I really like is this...

Re: Sail trim question

I was just about to suggest that you check out the trim of the boats sailing past you.

Also, does this happen in all conditions? Or just in certain conditions? If it's happening in a stiff...

Welcome from frigid New England! You are so far ahead of your average "new person". And your list of mishaps sounds pretty run-of-the-mill to me. You came out of it wanting to take the next step, so...
