Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

The seasickness is under control now, thank you. Dramamine is cheap.



After reading through this thread, I realize that I can't afford to go cruising after all. Time to pack it in and move...

Re: Condensation inside sailboat...

There you go.

We lived aboard for two and a half years in the Pacific Northwest and are now on our second winter in SE Alaska. Insulation helps retain heat. I am not a big fan of dehumidifiers but...

Re: How do you rate your marina/mooring ?

My marina sucks. It is outrageously expensive - $34 per foot per year. :rolleyes:

Men roam the docks who don't shave every day, own ugly boats and smell like fish.:eek:

Cool Re: Live wind Map

That is pretty cool.

Too bad it doesn't cover offshore. We use PassageWeather.com (http://www.passageweather.com/#). Not as fun to look at but it gives a pretty good picture of offshore...

Re: Albin Vega or Pearson Triton 28?

Interesting thread. But I am late and everything that needs to be said has been said, but I will throw in my 2c worth anyway. :)

Re: Future liveaboard with 'new' boat

Welcome to the forums.

Relax

Before you move aboard, reduce your possessions to no more than will fit in a backpack. It will make the transition to living on a boat so much easier.

Re: Jib Sheets and Boat Shows
