Thumbs up Extensive Updates to Cruising Web Site

I have just returned from another season of cruising. This season covered most of the islands of the Bahamas that we had missed on previous trips and then we returned to the Chesapeake via the ICW. As we cruise, I generate extensive logs as well as photographic albums and videos. These logs, photos and video now cover virtually all of the Caribbean and the east coast of the US from Maine to Florida. Many of the newer logs include a "For the Cruiser" section which provides information which I think is useful to cruisers.

Since I returned I've been updating the web site with this year's material. Most of the logs now include pictures of the area as well as links to a Google Maps page which allows people to utilize an interactive map to see where the log was written from. You can access this material at http://www.GeoffSchultz.org/

I've also created a Google Earth presentation of the trips. Each anchorage that we've been at has a placemark which includes a snippet of the log and links to the full log and any photos or video. There's a master file which contains all of our trips as well as files which break down the travel by area and by year. The 2007 file even includes a "movie" which flies you along our route. More information on this can be found at http://www.geoffschultz.org/GoogleEarth/GoogleEarth.shtml

I hope that you find this information interesting and valuable. If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to write.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Geoff...I enjoyed your log and "revisited" some of our favorite spots with you as I read along! Thanks.
Looks like we agree on Explorer Charts vs. Maptech for the Bahamas!
Sorry to hear of your experience at Dowry Creek...it has always been one of our favorite stopping points. The guy who built and owned the place would have never have let that happen to your paint job...but he passed away last December and I guess the current dockhands are not so hot.

You are at Doziers now...I used to be at Stingray Harbor just up the creek. If you have any work done at the Yacht Yard in between the two...tell 'em Camaraderie says hi. They outfitted both our cruising boats. Frank there is an artist with fiberglss and awlgrip if you need anything done like that.

I'm glad that people find them enjoyable. Thanks for the feedback.

I'm also happy to report that my replacement Solara solar panels are working well...

I'm planning on having the boat hauled at Schroeder's boat yard and have some Awlgrip work done...The mast needs to be faired and painted, etc. I feel sorry for the old girl. She's never had to winter over before and the cold waters in Nova Scotia will be quite a shock to her!

Nice work Geoff! Thanks for all the info and photos, I will browse through when I get a chance later. I didn't see any info on your boat, do you have a page for it? It would be interesting to see how you have her outfitted, for those of us wanting to cruise.
Thanks,
BF
