  1. I've heard that if you put a fishing rod on the back you are then feeding your family, so it's ok. Not that I'm promoting that plan.
  2. I second the blob of butyl. Seals perfectly, comes off easily.
  3. Do people stop sailing their pretty damn nice boat because they're getting their ass handed to them by pros? I get my ass kicked by pros all the time, kind of enjoy it. Better than being the king of a bunch of hacks. I'm happy if I finish while they're still in sight, really happy if I occasionally get a lucky shift and reach the upwind mark ahead, or cross tacks in the lead. Rare, granted, but it's happened.
  4. The connection is the only thing I don't like about the Pelagic. A lot of leverage on a plastic fitting waiting to get snapped at the most inopportune time. I've used both the ST4000 ram and the Pelagic and can't really detect any difference in performance when they are both operating as intended. You aren't going to see either of them in the Vendee Globe though. The plastic in the Raymarine didn't survive well either though. Had a guy make me up an aluminum replacement that I have yet to try. Hopefully it'll work for my backup.
  5. I believe if I remember correctly, a trimaran flipped in ‘85 or there about and a sailor was lost.
  6. Thanks, this is the kind of info I was looking for, whether people who have these apps find the info good enough to continue using it.
  7. You installed it on a piece of rotted wood?
  8. I don’t have expedition, I’m the poor man mentioned.
