The guy we met cruising on a Bristol 27 (met him in the Cook Islands and American Samoa) had a sculling oar for getting around the anchorage when the wind did not cooperate. It is a way to save money.

Can't avoid giving the governments of the world a bunch of money. We were shocked at how much some of the fees were and you can't avoid them other than not going anywhere or going somewhere and staying there. For Australia for example for my wife and I it was A$210 for visas and A$330 for the quarantine fee - -and the Ozzie buck is higher than the US one. In Fiji, the health guys had started to hit people for fumigation, as well as everything else. We met a Kiwi couple and their fees there were more than $700, but the movie theatre there was cheap.

We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!

Aww shucks, thanks!

Careful with that loose lipped motorless chatter. The forums will put up with harmless banter on the topic for a bit, but...

Nice

You know, it's never too late to just go full rebel, and get/refurb yourself a real goddess chaser kind of boat - something narrow and sleek, with the right hull shape, done up all shippy with shiny, totally impractical brightwork..

What else does the singlehander full time cruiser need really...
