Re: Sailboat falls of trailer on the 401 (Highway in Canada)

I wonder if that is a recovery trailer? Who owns a bright yellow trailer for a small sailboat?

Re: Killer whales launch ‘orchestrated’ attacks on sailing boats

Re: Jon decides to go sailing

Re: 3.2 billion years ago the Earth may have looked a lot like Kevin Costner’s ‘Water

H2o is a product of fire and therefor a product of vulcanism in the form of vapor I suppose.

Re: Insurance Sticker Shock

Seems like you are becoming an insurance company. Charge a $2k deposit if you think you will have one claim for every 4 charters or more if you expect more frequent claims.

Re: How to combine battery banks on a 2014 Oceanis 45?
