Re: New Member Introduction and New Lagoon 400

Uhhh, mmmm, why not contact Lagoon. They might know. They built the boat. By the way, do you have a YT channel set up, and maybe a Patreon page?

Re: Info on new yacht

No important comments, other than "cool sword". If you get tired of Crusader, you can rename her Excalibur ... or Katana if you plan to sail around Nihon for awhile.

Have fun.

Re: Favourite Fish?

Fun topic.

For me, and forever, it will be cod / haddock ! - known as "tara" here in Japan.

Re: $25,000 wedding ring dropped off dock

That was my first thought too. A few red flags. "Maybe fell off ...", "Don't need it back ...", "Insured ...", etc. In fact, both could be involved. When times get tough ($$$), what's easiest to...

Re: Live Aboards Belfast, ME

Really? Never used to be, and still appears to be quite open. Regardless, Maine folks are friendly, and many times "bored" and love to chat. Ahayah!

Re: Live Aboards Belfast, ME

If you're on Ilsesboro, it's just a hop and a skip away. Why not just hop over and have a walk around Belfast harbor? It's pretty small. Knock on a few hulls, and say "Hello? Anyone home?"

Re: Are wooden hull boats a viable option or should I steer clear?

As a quick follow-up, here's a wooden '57:

Not my boat, and I don't know the owner. See how nice I am, Jim?

That's OK. It's Maine, where Hinckley yachts are made.

Re: Are wooden hull boats a viable option or should I steer clear?

What are you talking about, Jimmy? Do you have any idea where I am from? Sure, yards will "build to order" should one have the required funds, yet Hinckley Inc. hasn't built a Sou'Wester hull in wood...

Re: Are wooden hull boats a viable option or should I steer clear?

I've owned both wood and fiberglass. Basically, it depends on what you wish to do with the boat. Is it long-term live-aboard cruising, or is it gentle fun day-sails with the family on weekends? All...

Re: What sailboat should I buy???

A) One you can handle
B) One that floats
C) One you can handle

There you go. You can omit C, because it mirrors A.

Good luck.

Re: Armed robbery in Panama

Yup. That about sums it up. If something actually did happen, I hope that a lot of strangers sent them a lot of money. That way, they can once-again set sail and continue cruising until the next...

Re: Rob Roy

Have you tried contacting Ron Johnson at Marine Concepts in Tarpon Springs, FL?
I think he build around 85 RR 23 sailboats before discontinuing the model.

Re: Recording music on a boat?

No hissy fit, just a pro talking gear. There actually IS quite a big gulf. That's why the high-end gear is expensive.

Put on a good set of headphones, and then listen to this (not me playing):
