    Best grippy shoes

    Zhik ZKG. Going on three years of boat only use. Traction is great still. Vans are a great backup.

    Garmin quatix vs Apple Watch

    I’ve own both and the Quatix 5 is the way to go. You get roughly 30hrs of use on the Quatix 5 while the Apple Watch lasted 6hrs in GPS mode. Also you will need a waterproof case for the Apple Watch to increase the durability. The large glass face on the Apple Watch is a bit suspect. Call an Apple store and see if the app you want to use runs independently on the watch or relies on linking to your phone. The boat I race on is constructed with carbon fiber and nomex so phone signals are not getting thru the deck. The Quatix is 100% independent and works great. I use the YA-Sailing app on the Quatix.

    What Are You Doing During Your COVID Vacation?

    Cleaning out garage. Own a Real Estate company, so figure I should get my license. Dealing with 2 kids pent up energy during lockdown. Oh, and brewing a Pilsner.

    '20's Grilling Thread

    Plus the tanks seem to be at a lower pressure. Typically I grill at medium high will filled tanks. The exchanged tanks I’m at full blast high and meat takes longer to sear/cook.

    I would start by going to the ORC website and create an account. From there your can download certs and see measurement changes.

    52 Super Series Thread

    IMO, the bulk of the people on this site have transitioned from actual racers to armchair drama sailors. Keep the info coming for the 52SS. I’m looking forward to the live races and wish they would do full race replays for each race.

    Washington state marine surveyors

    Give PT Rigging or Brion Toss Riggers a call for a recommendation on a local surveyor. Erik is great, but not located in PT.

    Sydney to Hobart 2019

    I assume S2H will be geoblocked like in years past. The S2H website stated only being broadcasted in Australia. Anyone out there have other info for US viewers?
