    I have been kicking around an idea of having 2-3 pedal systems that drive the boats propeller, but there's no easy way to do this without a lot of machining gears etc. I wonder how fast 3 people pedaling could move the boat?

    Annapolis - Powerboat on Sailboat Crime

    Clearly the sailboat owner should have started pumping water into his boat to lower it in the water. that way the power boat could have gone right over the top of him.
  4. I recently bought a Whitehall style 14' boat in Seattle. I thought i would keep this think on my deck, but its really too big to navigate up my stairs. I am looking for a good dock to store it at, preferably covered and semi secure. I don't want to keep it in the water. I do have a nice wheeled cart to move it around, but its a pain to put on top of my car. I am very new to boats and available places, so help would be appreciated.

    The joys of living in Oklahoma for most of my life. Lots of wind, but not much water.

    Whats the reason for the lack of places to refill CNG? Is there anywhere in Seattle that does it?

    This boat just jumped back on the market after a buyer backed out. Any big concern with this one being easy to operate with just two people?

    I really appreciate the help! Sounds like I will pass on this one for now.
  13. Afternoon from the PNW everyone. I moved here 18 months ago and caught the sailing bug, after living in land locked Oklahoma for 20 years. My wife just got back from R2AK on a friends boat. She has more experience than me now, but were both pretty new to boats. I now am really jealous I didn't go on R2AK. But there is always next year, or buy a boat of my own. So I am on the hunt, but going into this very blindly. My main requirements that I know for sure are: around 30 ft long, needs to have a head and room for 3-4 people for a weekend, nice galley, $22k or so, etc. I am not going to race it, just take out in the sound during the weekends (perhaps a yearly longer trip). I am not worried that much about yearly costs, just want to make sure I have a very reliable boat. I am a bit concerned about being able to resell the boat if I have to move in 2-3 years. I found this boat on craigslist/YW that seems to fit the bill, its looks in amazing shape after a restoration. Its seems to click all the right buttons, buts its a bit weird its been for sale for at least a year or more. What do you guys think about this boat? https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1971/Newport-30-3088084/Anacortes/WA/United-States?refSource=standard listing#.W0RJzNVKipo
