    Palm trees and volcanic cliffs... Polynesia? Didn't think Papeete had such fancy road infrastructure, however.

    Rules question - defining the start line after the start.

    Maybe, but that is not what they did. The question as to where the line that the OCS boat had to recross remains.

    Cruising a Beneteau 40.7

    We looked at a 40.7 to possibly replace our J/36 and decided it was not a good choice. There is minimal stowage below. The J/36 had space behind the settees and below the V-berths, and under the quarter berths and cockpit too. There was also a hanging locker, as well as cupboards and shelves in...

    Lac D'Annecy?

    Rules question - defining the start line after the start.

    It doesn't seem that the OP's question has really been answered. In his case a competitor snagged the mark and it moved to windward, so the RC "knew" it was out of place and that the OP hadn't returned far enough. What if the mark wasn't well anchored and the tide was moving it? Most SI's...

    Looks like Mediterranean from the topography and architecture.

    Start watches, gill race timer no longer made?

    Timex Ironman works well for most. Simple to operate and fewer quirky features that aren't that helpful. A LOT less expensive.

    Chris is correct! The photo is taken from Chappaquidick Island, looking across the entrance channel to Edgartown. Go Chris! Sorry for delay responding. We are in Maine with spotty internet.

    Not Cape Poge. Cape Poge is not on Martha's Vineyard, btw.

    bench hinges for interior seating cushions

    Perhaps the hassle with cushions is why many designers put tanks under the berths, so you don't have to get in beneath them. Maybe the solution is to use stowage under the berths for things you don't access often. Wire cutters for the standing rigging. Engine belts & filters. Spare parts for...

    Don't know of any lighthouses that short on Long Island.
