Default Thanks for this post

Great find!! Thanks for the post !

Fooey! I just MISSED IT!

For those of you who were willing to learn some extra and valuable info about your boat’s systems and the 101 of the out-of-site components that are found in the deepest reaches of your boat, this would have been an awesome seminar to attend.


—- this makes me further consider a past idea:


As a blue water technician, If I were to find another local technician, or two, each with a different skill set than I, regarding boats, I’d love to gather a group of boaters together somewhere on Lake Winni during this upcoming boating season to offer what we all have been taught over the years working in this industry.

I think it could be helpful to those boaters who just wouldn’t mind an extra bit of knowledge about their boat systems or even the basics knots or even etiquette.

Perhaps I will throw this option out there this spring if I see there is any traction in it.

In the mean time you can check my website for posted upcoming events. Sorry I missed this one, Id have posted as well. Shucks.

As time goes on I will try to post here on the forum and on my
site; www.nwmarineindustries.com what I hear is schedualed within reasonable distance, and if any forum members know of anything else, perhaps we can share them on the forum too.

That said, the New Hampshire Marine Trades Assoociation website might be a possible resource as well.

Just a thought.

Anyway thanks for the post

Exclamation There are sandbars—and there are Sand Bars...

Nigel Calder wrote for SAIL magazine back in the 1990s, when it was the cheapest sailing subscription around.

A gifted boater, he discussed the many different problems a sailor could have at a slip, at anchor, or when far from home.

My subscription had long run out when, in 2018, he'd described his latest adventure in his 42' sailboat:

Quote:
Nov 13, 2018 - "We hit the sandspit on our way out of the harbor at something over 5 knots, running hard aground...another wave would break over the sandspit, sweeping up onto the side deck, over the dodger and around the cockpit, dumping sand behind our bulwarks and flipping us over so the port side was down...and I wondered if we were going to save the boat..."


Pressreader, SAIL, November 13, 2018
