Panbo editor, publisher & chief bottlewasher from 4/2005 until 8/2018, and now pleased to have Ben Stein as a very able publisher, webmaster, and editing colleague. Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    Incidentally, in Florida I dined with a gent even older than myself who had happily single-handed his Sabre 40 from Maine to Lauderdale last fall and he said that one really valuable feature was the boat’s Zeus Drive “Skyhook” dynamic positioning. It’s sort of like the Xi5 “Anchor” mode for bigger boats. Stopping without drifting in tight quarters is great for rigging docklines, fixing something, taking an important call…whatever.

  2. Sounds like we’re gonna need a new light signal/day shape for “vessel in fixed position”..:)
