Re: Coppercoat after 6 months away

Re: Advice on offshore hops instead of the ICW

Ponce Inlet should not be done in anything larger than a 25 footer with 300 hp. That said I did it once, exiting on an ebb tide, and had my 47’ trawler going 16 knots with one engine in reverse to...

An 1970 O’Day 27 was my first boat circa 1975, and it was no where near as nice as this one. Had a 9.9 outboard, I paid $7K for it and sailed it on Lake Michigan. Great job on the restoration’

Re: simplified plumbing, Composting and "direct deposit"

“Within the law” neither means it’s sanitary or right. Most dog waste ends up outside where it composts naturally. My reference is relative to how well humans handle other garbage issues, and how 100...

Re: simplified plumbing, Composting and "direct deposit"

Just gross, and arrogant to think you are ok with dumping your dodo overboard let alone running around with no way to clean yourself. Composting toilets are a joke as well, and soon, if the boating...

Re: Sailboaters just don't understand powerboaters

Sea Rays are known for small house batteries, 110 v refrigerators and appliances, and no inverters, so they must run the gen set almost 24/7. I was on one about 15 years ago and they shut the gen...

Re: Religious Commercial or Political Personal Signal Flags at Marina slip
