Re: Sailing boat overrun by motoryacht, deadly accident

In Italy Justice is very subjective, the phrase "money can't by me love" might be true, however in Italy it can buy you justice or injustice, depends on which side you are.

Re: I'm old

At our age we should be careful not to go over the max BPM, The max BPM is 220 - age. Maybe it is none of my business, but I wouldn't like to see a fellow sailor suffer from a mistake.

Re: World becomes a tricky place

You are lucky to have big uncle Sam behind you, I don't think our polite (Canadian) politicians will do anything to help a stranded sailor.

This is not a political thread trying to take a side, the intention is to figure out how other members will react to new development.

Re: iron ballast

In order for iron to rust it must have access to oxygen. Since the keel is in the water there is no oxygen therefore no rust.

No, we are not happy enough! Just gave up! Apparently there is no way to change the system. The politicians are trenched too deep.

Re: Canada Luxury tax on boats postponed

Totally agree, in theory we are doing great, in practice not good at all!
My wife was neglected and when finally diagnosed had a full blown stage 4 cancer! Something is VERY wrong with the system.

Re: Canada Luxury tax on boats postponed

Af far as I remember the founding fathers of the USA and Canada were NOT professional politicians. Our problem is the addiction of people that didn't succeed in anything else try to runout lives.

Wait until you really need a doctor, you can't get a family doctor in Ottawa. And you still have to pay your takes.

When I flew to bring my boat from the Caribbean, the crew members brought all the equipment as personal luggage. A little clumsy, but easy.

Re: Hangkai Chinese Engines - $225 New

I don't buy Chinese products if I can find a replacement. There is no good reason to contribute to their economy.

Re: Buying Chinese Goods on eBay!!

After being in Japan and in China the difference between those two cultures is so visible. The dirtiest public toilet in Tokyo is cleaner then the toilets in the village lounge in Beijing Airport.

Re: Buying Chinese Goods on eBay!!

I do not buy China unless there is no other alternative. They do not play fair so I am not going to send them my money. I apply this rule on everything I buy.
