Radar reflector
I'm a bit sceptical about fancy radar reflectors (and reflectors in general) but I have seen an ad for Echomax that claims great results form a government defence agency tests. An...

Filtering cross-posts
Suppose (hypothetically, of course) that I wanted to filter out posts cross-posted to group A but still see posts cross-posted to group B? With my current usenet reader (Gravity) I can fil...

Anchor Lamps
Last year I tried to use a new hurricane lamp for early evening before turning on the 12V anchor light, and each time found it blew out with only a moderate breeze. Are there an...

Arbroath is North of Inverness
Red faces at the Yachting Monthly team for screwing up the map on page 92 of this (well, next, technically) month's issue. And 5 out of ten for effort on their article about innovative...

First wire splice

Some more dumb questions...
Hi all, First of all, what's a "survey" - when is it necessary and how much does it cost? Next: How long would it take to sail single-handedly from S/England to the Win...

Got into a discussion in the pub the other day, by a guy who'd recently bought a brand spanking new racing spec Beneteau 36. The price he'd paid for the folding prop option (along with ot...
