Re: Now seriously -Onboard Entertainment
- When I sail to Catalina alone, I take a radio so that I can listen
to Sean Hannity along the way. I use a "shower radio" that I picked
up at Bed Bath and Beyond for $10 on sale. When I start out and
wind is light, I hang it by its strap on the boom. As soon as there
is enough wind to sail at a good clip, I stuff the radio in my
breast cleavage. You know I have that due to the foam life
So then I keep my spray suit unzipped a few inches so I can hear the
radio. The other day I was having some mild conditions that made
things boring enough to get lunch. I went back to open a hull port
to grab my sandwich and when I got back to the rail, my radio was
gone. It slipped out and fell overboard without my knowlege because
I had turned it off so it wouldn't distract me as I was doing the
sandwich retrieval manuever. I should have lashed the radio's strap
to my life vest like I had done on the previous trip. Live and
If I would have heard it splash I may have been able to retrieve the
radio, since it floats. But it was shaped like a flying saucer and
made a silent departure.

have a 115 liter one that I use for a ditch bag on the mono so I know
they make 'em big enuff - try Seal-Line
- I noticed that Murrays has a new, rather extensive line of dry bags.
I think it was on their "what's new" page.
