Re: AR15 Denver

Bogieman and I are on the South Carolina coast (I was actually in the water over the weekend because it was warmer than the air!). The area that BM is going to be sailing in has some features that might make the sail options available in a Bermuda rig preferable to a lug. There's nothing wrong with...

Re: AR15 Denver

Boogie, the sail isn't the long pole right now. I think you want to make sure you want the lug over bermuda as it will change a bit of the rigging. I'm not saying DON'T go with the lug. I'm just thinking it might be worth holding off a bit before you get the sail. I have a few questions that we shou...

:lol: :lol: :lol: The secret to my success is found in risk mitigation. This is way less risky than it appears, but I wouldn't try it if you are too chicken. I got caught mixing epoxy inside... Mrs was all "have you heard of the concept called 'drop cloth'? I see not!" I was rapidly exiled. I'm not...

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Re: Jaysen's V12 -- 'Lil Bit' of everything fun

Lil Bit has a very limited range... If I can’t walk there she can’t go there. She only has a hand cart and we don’t have a vehicle capable of towing anything. Never planned on living someplace where I could just walk her to the water.

I was thinking using a 4" pvc bend. something I can mount to the bucket. The trick is that if I don't keep the anchor line straight off the bow things get squirrely. If the rhode is off to the side it gets real "slammey" with the waves or the wind causes drag. I wound up with ~40' of line out (5ft c...
