1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Just spent a week on a fifty foot catamaran in the BVI.

    Everyone wore polo's and t-shirts throughout. Anything nice would have been destroyed by fishing, saltwater or sloppy drinking.

    Not sure what you're asking, but Musto is my choice for sailing outerwear.

    Will this boat be used for piracy?

    Slightly off-topic perhaps but just as important.....
    No matter how enjoyable boating or sailing can be, be prepared also for what could go wrong (injury, motion sickness, sinking, etc)
    Make sure your jacket has reflective striping and a hood and many zippered or preferably velcroed pockets to keep your junk safe.
    Wear a vented safari-type hat with a string to keep it on your head in a high wind. A pair of driving gloves kept in your jacket pockets can come in handy in bad weather. Check to make sure there are enough life jackets on board before commiting.
    Sunscreen, bottled water, whistle, motion sickness tablets, portable first aid kit, flares and a good fitting pair of sunglasses are aslo a must. Who cares if they laugh? You are prepared. Stay hydrated.Post photos when you return!

    Get some thick wool sweaters and waterproof clothing too. Be prepared, it gets freaking cold on the water.

    Also assuming you would be the one doing emergency repairs/engine work yourself. Bring some junk clothes for that, don't want to ruin nice clothes with engine grease.

    Something nautical would probably be OK for a yacht...

    OP claims he actually owns a boat, so this is not appropriate.
