    Alcohol stove not allowed in marina.

    Has anyone ever heard of this restriction? My marina application was just denied due to an unpressurized alcohol stove. A late model Origo as currently sold by west marine. I was stunned by this determination.

    the end of certainty

    What do they expect when they hold a race and do not let anyone come to watch. We San Franciscans were much more hospitable to the Kiwis than they were to us.

    Kayak: SF -> HA

    Sounds like roughly the same position as the Flyin Hawiian rescue. These guys keep the Coast Guard busy out there.

    (Lack of) Event Management

    Kiwis won’t even let anyone into their country to watch. When it was in San Francisco we let thousands of them in to watch the races. Not too sporting if ya ask me.

    1,900 containers into the Pacific

    1900 that’s an impressive number. Especially when you multiply by two. Wonder what was in them?

    diesel outboards

    How many diesel piston aircraft engines have you ever seen in person?  I read about them in magazines for decades but don’t think I ever saw one in person.

    Frank Butler - 8 bells

    I have always enjoyed hearing the stories of people calling up Catalina and getting to speak with the man himself. What a great legacy to leave.

    Wheel vs. Tiller ?

    Even if the legs are above or below the tiller they are frequently attached to bodies that can get in the way.

    Annapolis Boat Shows Cancelled

    I have been wanting to attend the Annapolis boat show for years. Each year something prevents me from making the trip.  I guess I already know what that is this year. Bummer

    Marvin Creamer, a Mariner Who Sailed Like the Ancients, Dies at 104

    I would like to read more on the specifics of his no nav circumnavigation. How close did he make to his desired landfalls, time spent in port between legs, where did he stop and day to day details of the voyage type stuff. Anyone know any good sources for this info. Thanks, Godzilla
