    Spinnaker pole length vs kite size?

    Mustn’t forget to use galvanized wire. Only the best meat hooks are galvanized! - Stumbling (next time I’ll reread all the entries in a familiar thread!)

    Garmin Watch users - new Sailing Datafield

    Each leg has a primary route and a secondary route. After that, I have bailout routes through passes to anchorages along the course. Where it gets interesting is Florida Bay. There are a number of routes to chose, depending on the conditions, to get across to the finish. I do some waypoints in Basecamp, some in Google Earth with chart overlays and occasionally manual entry in the devices. All of this results in native waypoints and routes in my Garmin devices (Tactix watch and 78sc handhelds.) My Tactix is a first generation and is getting tired. Am looking to getting either a current Tactix or Felix Sapphire to replace it. An app with modern sailing outputs is very appealing, without having to get a Quatix. - Stumbling

    Garmin Watch users - new Sailing Datafield

    Has it changed that apps can access what i would call ‘native’ waypoints entered into a watch, or that the waypoints have to be entered in the app? If the app has to contain the waypoints and routes, how many does your system contain? I’m planning on doing the Everglades Challenge and I have a number of routes that I want to enter and my intent is to use my watch as the GPS of last resort. -Stumbling

    Help me out with some MORC History

    I seem to remember there were some designs that did fairly decent under both rules, especially mini tonners. - Stumbling

    The cat contains the portal that is both a companionway and not a companionway, until you attempt to open it. You have two portals to test. One could be a companionway, both could be or none are companionways at the time you try. Definitely a vexing option to have on a catamaran... - Stumbling

    End of the dream? Buchan 37 washes ashore

    I’m especially intrigued by the prop shaft leading aft of the rudder stock. That’s a bonus for dockside entertainment both in forward and reverse! - Stumbling

    That is the base model. The fastest model is the NK-1U, the “Ultimate” configuration.... Realized by the designer Curly Howard. The progenitor of the NK-1, NK-2, and NK-3. They are also known by their full name for the series: NiyuK, NiyuK, NiyuK.... - Stumbling
