  5. I can't respect or take seriously a boating person who is so lubberly as to use the term 'rope' instead of 'line' aboard a vessel. And this guy is supposed to be an expert in sailing and boat handling.

  7. Thanks! Bahamas anchoring style is also a good option to explore if less time available. For example You drop the bow anchor and release (straight) 200' ft line, then drop stern anchor and tie the end of the line through the bow also, then pick up the the 1st. Bow line 100' feet and you are anchored in the example with 100' feet both bow and astern yet both lines are tied to the boats bow thus the boat would just swivel around in place in a tight circle with any wind change.

  8. Thinking… with all the ropes (two in front), why do you need an anchor for? Interesting videos. Interesting gear you have on board. Keep up the good work.

  9. all I could think was the line fouling from the drum as they motored out, and the lady with no gloves. . ouch!

  10. I found that releasing the rope from the dinghy is much easier and quicker then dragging the rope from the boat, especially in high seas and long rope.

  11. Whats the etiquette for night time, in this situation just an anchor light probably isn't enough to ward incoming vessels.

  12. Please elaborate on the type of line used when tying off to shore. It looked to be a polypro line….is that correct? I am not sure of the stretch factor of Poly line vs. Nylon but I know it floats.
