  1. You can obtain a new MMSI through the US Power Squadron website. Entering it into your equipment is easy enough following manufacturer instructions, however some devices will require a previously issued number to be cleared by the manufacturer or a service shop.
  2. Electrical issues confirmed in Ken Howrey’s update on Instagram. Sounds like they were taking on “some water” which affected their electrical system.
  3. Wondering the same, not much word from the RORC or Alex on Instagram where updates, to this point, were frequent.
  4. “I hereby publicly retract anything and everything I have ever said about inland sailing.” -Ted Turner on the 1970 Chicago Mackinac
  5. "Listen" doesn't require response and would be difficult to enforce. However if the hails over Ch. 16 are requesting response, a response would be indicated. No? Assuming we're listening..
  6. That is fair. Their performance certainly doesn't speak for the build quality of Caroll boats, as there are obvious issues which many others have reported. Their performance and results in the Mackinac races for example show that the boats are relevant and turbo-ing the design can produce a competitive boat.
  7. I would argue that chico consistently does much better than a broken clock.
  8. I find beating the black boat consistently doesn't seem to be that difficult if, as the others say, I am paying attention to the numbers and the E indicator thing. But winning big isn't as easy and has required some serious luck.
  9. Congrats Zonker, looks like you beat me by a bit over 100m on that leg.
  10. Like others have said, a good program defines itself by meeting its listed goals. For me, a good program would include having fun with a competent crew who are enjoyable to be around, reasonably meticulous boat and equipment prep., always learning/striving for improvement, and some success on the racecourse.
  11. I am wearing the same watch and strap at the moment. There are a couple of manuals online that can be found with a quick google search that seem to explain the bezel function, I look forward to using mine on the racecourse next summer.
