Re: Adrift sv Dagny, West End, Grand Bahama

Yep, so many systems went through. So many possible locations. She was closed up tight, so I think she is still floating . Good seaworthy design, she should fend for herself rather nicely, just got...

Re: Adrift sv Dagny, West End, Grand Bahama

I'll post an update as...

Re: Adrift sv Dagny, West End, Grand Bahama

No new sightings. I've created a flyer so we can start emailing the marinas up the coast. If you'd like a copy to put up at your Marina ( obviously if you are in the possible drift area) I'd be glad...

Re: Adrift sv Dagny, West End, Grand Bahama

No new sightings and we will probably not get another drift analysis from Chris Parker due to the time factor. Waves are pushing her towards shore while currents are pushing her out. Then there is...

Re: Composting Head

If you desiccate the poo tank you can dispose of your peat in a dumpster with no qualms, the bad microbes are dead or reduced enough to be safe for a dumpster. Hopefully pump out stations will get...

Yes, dry heads are not for everybody!! I've lived aboard since I was 19, over twenty years ( give or take five years :-). ). I've tried every head under the sun, there just isn't a perfect solution....
