you can also get the navtex via automated e-mail subscription daily thorugh whatever way you get e-mails...tend to be too general once in the caribe though as do all the US weather service generated forecasts. You gotta listen into the local or tune in Chris or the Ham weather gurus to get the island by island scoop.

Good point Cam... Didn't know you could get the Navtex via e-mail.. wouldn't want to rely on a boat-based internet connection for weather data though...

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.
