Red face What's Missing?? I wish... What if?

Is there a cruising resource that you think should be available online, but you've been unable to find? What kind of free things/services/information would make your cruising life easier? What could help you solidify your cruising dreams?

I'm looking for extras to add to a sailing website and would appreciate any suggestions.

If I use your idea, I'll give you credit and a set of custom can coozies with your boat name/logo embroidered.

Thanks
Pam

Claiborne Young's web site Salty Southeast Cruiser's Net http://www.cruisersnet.net/index.php is a great resource from North Carolina to Louisiana and The Bahamas. The Seven Seas Cruising Association http://ssca.org/cgi-bin/pagegen.pl?pg=home&title=Home is another great resource.

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.

list destinations and have people write in and evaluate what they like/dislike

Website

Hi Pam,
Would you consider posting a link to your website so we could take a look?
By your screen name I assume you dive as well? Is your website going to be a combined sailing diving site? I think that would be great. To find much cruising/diving combined material it takes quite a bit of googl'n and then it seems to be a light comment here or there on a forum. I spent a pretty good amount of time last night trying to find info on portable/cruising sailboat worthy oil-less compressors.

Well, best of luck either way.

Thanks everyone, here's what I'm working on

Everyone, I appreciate the suggestions, please keep them coming.

trecksail, in response to your request here is the site I'm working on now.
"MyNextMarina.com"
(I have less than 10 posts so it won't let me post a link to it.)

I want to have a one-stop site for marinas around the world, with all resources relating to cruising, sailing, diving in each area. I would love to have cruisers write reviews on marinas and cruising destinations.

I will include clearance procedures, do's and don'ts, recommendations, etc..

I'm also working on "Cruising Kitty" ideas - sharing ideas and helping fellow sailors with earning ideas to add to the kitty. I may have a separate site for that called CruisingKitty.org.

I may have another site "iliveaboard.com" to house additional information, such as insurance, communications, cooking, equipment, maintenance.

I am a web developer so I started the websites as a way to house all the information I will need when we become fulltime cruisers. There are so many questions and so many resources -- still trying to find and sort out the best sources.
Pam

I've been diving for more than 10 years, sailing only a couple. The two go hand-in-hand so well, I can't wait until we've living in the Caribbean on our boat.
