There was another American boat with the same name as ours (Evenstar) in Panama headed to Ecuador. Our next stop...

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon

Probably this^^

Or possibly find a local place in Tahiti that can service it. Or send it back to the U.S. to rebuild.

I need to grab my multimeter and do some testing. Worse case scenario I...

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon

We considered it.

It was 300 miles back to the Galapagos. The Galapagos have zero facilities there, and getting parts shipped there is by all reports a hellishly time consuming and frustrating...

Re: Inflatable Kayaks

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon

We just arrived in the Marquesas Saturday. Our autopilot died the second night, we hand steered the last 2,700 miles of the trip. We are lucky, we have two teenagers that can take the helm.

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon

Not a great plan, at least not for me. If you are wearing earplugs and the watch stander needs help they are going to have to start blowing horns or leave station and come kick you awake.

Re: mmsi numbers, ship radio and hand held VHF

We have a similar setup, I just bought the HX851 too.

Re: Rallies Gone Wrong

You imply it repeatedly every time you post about the lack of experience in SDR skippers. It is implicit in your judgement that they need more "Adult Supervision".

I am not super experienced.

Re: Live aboard legal address

The concept of a "Town" or a "State" are every bit as much of a legal fiction as a "Resident".

Re: Live aboard legal address

Try to send a FedEx package to a PO box, try to send one to an SBI PMB.
