Are you in the GULF please talk to us!!
On another discussion board called world cruising, the current thread is someone trying to find out about the oil spill. As Cruisers who have to transverse the gulf from FLA TO MEXICO or south. What do we need to know.
Anyone have information on how this oil will affect our boats, the hull, the sails, the lines and the decking. Also how will it affect us cruising from one side to another considering the engine and other systems.
I have read blogs on how to clean oil from sails, and hulls, but cruisers who want to move from mexico to florida for the next winter season, are stuck
and dont have information they need to know to get across
We dont want to know the enviormental impact, or the amount of oil in the water or the other stats
We want to know as full time cruisers, who live on our boats and the water is our home, how to we navigate around the spill, how will it affect our boats
any health issues crossing any oil, will you get sick, any thing anyone can tell us about the situation, people who are in the gulf, other cruisers or people in the know
