Re: Solo Offshore Overnight- Advice Sought

Harbor less - I solo out of Port Canaveral and have done a couple of solo overnite sails......never ever sleep for more than a few minutes or you are likely to get run down by someone. Mark of SL was looking at AIS to see the other big boats out there, and I would guarantee there are dozens of other boats out there that do not have AIS or radar or anyone at the helm paying attention. Stay alert, catnap for a few minutes if you have to but keep an egg timer or something like that to keep you from falling soundly asleep.
