Re: USCG routine safety check

Exactly!
I have one, but itís buried deep in the V-berth storage. No reason to have it out unless I sail with people onboard. Rare occurrence.
I single hand.

Re: Galley countertops

I agree, my starboard side countertop is my workshop at times. When I decide to refurbish the countertops, I think itíll be Formica again, maybe butcher block. I do like Corian, but not sure how...

Re: Selling a boat for cash, payment methods

When I bought my boat, I wired the money from my account to the seller, while we were at the bank, with the notary transferring ownership. Bill of sale, along with signing over the USCG Documentation.

West Marine should have them in stock.

Re: Tiller auto pilot

Take a look at Pelagic. Robust unit, great customer service, although the operators manual could use some attention.

Re: Good Bluewater Boat for female

I installed the Pelagic autopilot on my Mariah 31 almost three years ago. Great piece of gear, robust as all heck, reasonably priced. I believe Scanmar bought the company recently. Friends of mine...

Re: MANTUS MARINE GIVEAWAY - ends Nov 24, 2020

The Mini Scuba System would be nice to have for upkeep on the bottom, and the occasional shallow water diving.

Re: Long Island Float Plan, 11/4 through 11/9

Illegal to sail the East River, why?
Sailed through Hell Gate about a month ago. Would have continued, but the damn buildings blocked the wind.

Re: Dropping vs lowering anchor

I donít power down all the time due to anchoring under sail, but do use this technique of foot on top of the chain. Amazing how much you can tell about the bottom.
