In Topic: Boat on a truck - tips for packing/preparing?

Today, 04:52 PM

This is your knot when tieing down just about everything on the deck during shipping. You driver will have to stop multiple times so tighten down his straps, and presumably he/she can tighten down a truckers hitch if needed...


Common sense? Maybe, or maybe knot.

Boaters Bash - Ya need a new ( more expensive) microphone, great event.
CYC Mac Awards - Great event. The lamb pops were the bomb.
Frostbiting - Shifty, 180 to 245 with about 3 to 8 kts. Best soup in town @ Belmont!

Good Weekend. And a Sunday Frostbiting SA walk-in RC volunteer. Nice.

Cunctators Race up next Sunday...

Nice Sunday on the water for the frostbiting series out of Belmont.
Sad to hear about Richard Parker leaving the shores of Lake Michigan. If it's true, she will be missed.

In Topic: Hobart Crew Available

Yeah, I know.  I've walked the docks in early Nov a few years back. I've been told that sailors that are not known entities within the micro community are rarely considered as a wise option for last minute crew, unless you're a pro with qualified references, or you’ve been out there for a while and you’re no longer a stranger. . Reasons being rather obvious….


Comments heard over a few jugs at the CYCA-


'You have to know the bloke sitting next to you on the rail, and know that he's not a threat to your safety... Some bloke walking the docks a couple weeks before the race? Not likely a wise choice.'

'You'll have your life in your mate's hands out there...'

'And besides, look at you. You're a facking mess mate! Are those girls’ shorts??'


Well, that last bit might not have actually been stated. Pretty sure it wasn't. Mind you, we were talking over several jugs.
