sailingdog chris-

might want to look in the archives... They do have a fair bit written about Panama City, the canal and other such stuff... or just scroll down about four screens to mid-November.... I also don't see anyplace that they're pushing music, unless you went to not Jack posted the wrong link and it was corrected over 12 hours before you posted your response.

chris_gee The lostonpurpose link above looks like spam to sell music. I didn't see any such log.

ianhlnd Beautiful boat, I have the plans (bought in '74) for the Roberts 55 in fiberglas, wood, and an assortment of other materials, didn't know they had them for ferro. Sausalito and Alviso used to be the mecca for ferro cement.

May see you on the way.

getlostonpurpose Sorry, had to jump in here. In reference to Jack's post, it's

We just went through the canal. We were waiting on family and other things to arrive, but we could have gotten through the canal in only 4-6 days from initially walking in the office if we wanted to. You can check out the posts he referenced. Beautiful boat by the way!!

Jotun In addition you can buy ginger tablets at many healthfood or vitamin stores. Every seen the TV show Mythbusters? They did an episode on seasickness and found that, for them at least, ginger tablets were the only effective cure that had no side effects.

sailingdog I'd second ginger. Ginger snaps, candied ginger, ginger ale, ginger beer, pickled ginger, and ginger gum are all pretty effective solutions at helping prevent seasickness.

yotphix While you are trying the pineapple, lay in a store of ginger. A friend of mine has had complete success with it, brewing a ginger tea from the root itself. There are also commercial preparations available.
