Re: Newbe with no experience buys big boat

I can confirm that. I've done a sea survival course, part of which involved 8 grown men having to haul themselves into a life raft, one of those octagonal inflatable ones with the canopy over the...

Re: Newbe with no experience buys big boat

On the basis of this thread, I've just bought this book for the Kindle. I'll let you know what I thought of it when I'm done, but I'm looking forward to reading it!

Re: "Free boat" seaworthiness

Quite. I'm somewhat of a lurker on here, not much of a sailor, but I've read most of this thread...

Re: do you carry an acoustic Guitar?

I've got a Martin D28 Marquis, bought it second hand when I arrived in Melbourne....that thing is as loud as hell, a right cannon. No way I'd take it on a boat though, I have a much cheaper Yamaha I...

Re: Sailing from California to Florida via the Panama Canal

I can't say with any certainty that this is the case for the Panama Canal, but I have dealt with many authorities and bureaucracies outside the western world, and probably the last place you go to...
