    TackTick Race Compass repair

    Raymarine does "out of warranty repairs" on tacktick products. This part you have to keep a secret - they charge you a flat rate for repair but many times they just send you a new replacement since it is cheaper than the tech time trying to fix your old stuff. Check out the Raymarine.com website and go to "Support", then "Out of Warranty Repairs".

    USS McCain Incident

    The part I don't understand is that it would seem that operating these ships in a time of war or hostilities would be much more demanding and difficult such that peace time accidents like this makes me think this ship is not close to being functionally ready for its mission. I does not make sense to strive for minimally functional in peace time when that won't cut it when the call comes. Also, a captain should not have to come up with "work arounds" for poorly designed systems. If a gun jammed every fifth time it was fired, I would expect the military to fix the gun and not expect soldiers to come up with "work arounds." If the problem is training on complex equipment and software, why aren't sailors classroom trained and certified by someone who is a knowledgeable, certified instructor? Why does the Navy have a person untrained on the complex system, doing "on the job training" of others. Finally, it seems to me there have been a long string of incidents of ships deploying when they were not prepared to go and I wonder how many, if any, commanding officers tell their commanding they cannot deploy.

    Seems like having batteries charged in a fireproof enclosure instead of behind/on seat cushions or on a table made of combustible materials would be a good start.

    Tizen OS watch apps

    Nothing came up in the Galaxy Store when I typed in "Regatta Racer" or "Sailing Starts". Anyone able to install the app?

    You really don't get how atypical the conditions you experienced were or that the weather conditions could have been much severe. What would have happened if while sailing north you had the conditions you experienced while at anchor in a protected anchorage at Half Moon Bay? Things might have turned out much differently. What most people are saying is that you just need to manage risk by being prepared and not sailing off into known adverse conditions. Perhaps you are managing risk and you studied the weather forecast before your journey - but your posts and described boat preparation do not seem to support that conclusion. Also, what happened in Half Moon Bay? Perhaps I missed something. There was the post you were on the beach. Then you stated you were thrown from the boat - from being beached? Then scrambling across rocks bare foot - was your boat on the rocks? And, finally, your boat magically appears at the dock. Is there more to the story or are you saving the story for the movie?

    I searched the Samsung store and could not find a count-down timer, let alone a race timer. Is there anything out there for a galaxy watch?

    In this case, a crewman finished cleaning the galley at 2:35 am and then went to bed. The same crewman was awakened shortly after 3:00 by a sound in the main cabin which he investigated. So, unless the "roaming" watchman is patroling on less than 30 minute intervals, it seems that the likelihood that the roaming watchman would have solved the problem is remote or, at least, uncertain.

    I understand your point that there are statutory duties - such that an owner can have their license suspended, fined or prosecuted criminally. However, I believe a release does release liability for injuries or death by a releasing party - even liability based on statute, unless the release is against public policy.

    Here is a release from another dive boat company. I WILL RELEASE XXX, LLC, Dive Boat XXX, its owner, and their employees and agents, including the boat Captain, and diver masters, from any and all responsibility or LIABILITY for any and all injuries or damages sustained by me or others. I WILL NOT SUE or make a claim against any of the above parties for injuries or damages sustained by me or others, whether it arises or results from any NEGLIGENCE or other liability. No mention that the release only applies once you enter the water.

    After I saw a boat catch fire at the fuel dock, I thought his suggestion was spot on.

    As for the limitation of liability, I am sure that everyone signed a Release of Liability before getting on the boat.

    There was some comment about fire hoses being available. Not sure they would be of much use. When I bought a new power boat years ago, the salesman went throught the features and safety items. When he got the the fire extinguisher he said, "When it is time for one of these, it is time to get off the boat and forget about the fire extinquisher because a fire moves to fast." Automatic fire suppression systems seem like the only really workable solution when you don't have a lot of room from which to fight the fire.
