Re: Downside of living aboard

This is a pretty good post. I rarely feel the need to throw in my 2 cents, but I think this might help people that are on the fence about it.

Let me start off by saying that I have only been...

Re: Advice on the Perfect Boat Please

Just to add to what everyone else has stated.... and keep in mind I'm as far away from someone to take advice on when it comes to purchasing a "perfect" vessel. All I can say is, do a little triage,...

Re: The future of the sailing world. Why are there so few young people cruising??

I for sure need to go back and read the entirety of this thread. Not really being a youngster (I turn 30 at the end of March) but not being old either, all I can say about is my generation...

Re: Who does a lot of fishing from or near their boat?

Capt Aaron, do you use the sling in the mangroves a lot, or do you tend to use a speargun? Spearfishing has always intrigued me, but I have never done it. It seems like it's relatively easy once...

Re: Who does a lot of fishing from or near their boat?

Oh for sure fly fishing from a moving sailboat would be futile, if you are anchored it wouldn't prove that much of a problem, at least no more so than fishing wild streams with trees and bushes...

Re: Garbage Island

Yeah, unfortunately cases of bottled water are to convenient for people, especially sailors with it's easy stow-ability. I wish more people would buy bigger jugs and use smaller reusable containers...

Re: longer than stuff lasts in a frige

Therapy, you make a really good point.... even though a stiff blended margarita after a long hot day is my cup of tea, I really don't think I'd be using it all that much in total time.

Who does a lot of fishing from or near their boat?

The main reason for my soon to be move from landlocked Roanoke, down to the keys is fishing. I've been trout-bumming for a while, fished a lot in the Chesapeake, and will make my 5th week long trip...

Re: longer than stuff lasts in a frige

Capt, The boxed bacon isn't bad, it does say it requires refrigeration after opening, but it comes precooked. We've used it for camping a lot, and if you like BLT's during tomato season. I have...

Re: Rum enjoyment

I'm usually more of a Blanton's or an Eagle Rare man (because I love my bourbon) But Mt Gay really isn't that bad, Capt Private Stock is good, I'm gonna have a big list for my next liquor run to...

Re: longer than stuff lasts in a frige

This thread is awesome! Keep the ideas and recipes coming. Anyone use handcrank blenders at all? I've always heard mixed reviews of them.

On a food note, while camping in the Keys or OBX we do...

Re: Big Stove vs. Camp Stove
