On-Line sailing stories and Blogs

On-Line sailing stories and Blogs are fun to read.
I've run across a few. I like reading about how folks solved the issues that have come up. Sometimes very innovative.

This is my favorite a fun read:
How THAT Came About - Part 1

I recently read part of:
* Confessions Online also interesting.

What else have you got?

There was one mentioned a couple weeks ago on this forum that I started and enjoyed but lost the reference.

A couple that I keep track of..

Webb Chiles - He's got a journal on there, as well as a couple of books that he wrote that are no longer in print. tons of good stuff..

self-portrait in the present sea Webb Chiles

Wally Bryant - a guy that completely refit his boat, sold his house, quit his job, and is currently cruising in Mexico.. awesome project info to boot.. The blogs since he left San Fran are in the "What's New" section at the top right..

Wally Bryant - s/v Stella Blue

Natural High - Interesting read about the building of a Tiki 38.. started off in Thailand, but the builder completely muffed things up and the owner had the hulls shipped back to New Zealand where he had all the issues fixed and at this point almost has the boat done.

Natural High Adventures - Warren's Blog

s/v Tinou
1976 Northstar Farr 727
Hull #37

I can't imagine mastering the skills involved here without a clearer understanding of who's going to be impressed.

David,
'That' was quite an adventure. I'm not quite finished with your second link yet. I'll let Don M. know you are distracting me from working on his boat.
Will check the other links soon.
Most recent:
Adventure Vista - A View Into Our World of Adventure
This one is pretty amazing if you can sift through all the entries. A young Hungarian guy circumnavigates on a boat around 19'.
Földkörüli szóló-vitorlázás Carinával (6 m), Sailing Alone Around the World with Carina (19 ft boat)
A more ancient account of being shipwrecked:
The journal of Llewellin Penrose, a ... - Google Books

Everybody has one:

Re: On-Line sailing stories and Blogs

We keep a sailing blog that started out as a blog about the refit of our old Tartan 27. After some soul searching, we decided to sell the Tartan, our house and almost everything in it so that we could buy a bigger boat and move aboard with our dog Jet. We're spending the summer on the Chesapeake Bay and hope to make our way down the ICW to Florida, then hopefully over to the Bahamas.

We're currently ranked at #5 on the Sailingblogs.org website. We'd love you to check us out! Happy sailing!
