Re: I'm Knot impared..I admit

Doesn't work for light line (like smallish polypropylene), especially in high winds. You need some kind of weight on the end. I keep a monkey's fist made around a golf ball for those occasions (a...

RE: Pics of rough water, clouds, and jellyfish

That second jelly pic is awesome. Great shot.

Any idea on the scientific name of those guys?

Looks fleetingly similar to our west coast sea nettles (Chrysaora fuscescens.)

Re: Should Life Jackets be Mandatory for Teens Sailing?

I believe California requires anyone under the age of 16 (or is it 16 and under?) to wear a PFD while underway on a boat. I assume your question falls outside this range?

I'm surprised that in...

Re: these guys can sure drink!!
