Re: Great Loop Trawler/Cruiser - Concept

I love this stuff. A little personal punishment is good for the soul. I'd enter the R2AK or that one they have in Florida if I was 1/2 my age. I took my V10 rowing last weekend and between portage to the shore and a not very long trip in unchallenging conditions, I felt 85. I'm going to chalk it up ...

Re: Systems 3 primer

I didn't have that problem...although I had others just as annoying. In my case I put it down to lapses in preparation, which was overall pretty good. How did you clean the surface before applying the primer? (Not that I know better, mind you.)

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Every sailor should master defecating in rough seas. It is a bit athletic, however. Get it together. I'm not sure about rescue; won't your position be updating? Heaving-to doesn't stop the boat in any case. You'll be fore-reaching, i.e., making a bit of leeway mixed with a bit of forward movement. W...
