Thanks for that. Agreed - this time is going to be my wife and I only. This way I only have to watch out for her and myself instead of other couples too. I at least know she has done this before...

No offense taken at all. I literally have nightmares about that video. I have seen that video seemingly hundreds of times and I still ask why why why anyone would go into a crowded mooring field...

Boy would I love that! This whole experience is making me wonder if I am biting off too much. I feel like I can handle the 40 but now I'm second guessing. Frustrating.

Agreed. This year on our crewed BVI charter we were on a Jeanneau 46. What an amazing difference from the Morgan we trained on. I really enjoyed the Jeanneau and how much more responsive she was. ...

Sure. I like the idea of a smaller company, better or more individualized service (could be debated either way I suppose). I also like that they offered better prices than the other options I found...

I suspect you are right. Only problem is that we didn't take our 103 and 104 with a charter company. We did those certifications on a Morgan Out Island 41 with a private ASA school in the Florida...

Mandatory sleep-aboard?

Exploring options and just off the phone with Sunsail. The agent told me charters start at 6pm with a mandatory sleep-aboard. Is this new? With other companies, I was planning to arrive in the...

I have no problem at all with having/paying the skipper for a day, even 2. As someone noted here and I agree, surely I will learn something from him. It's just the manner in which it was required...

Just spoke with my last charter captain and he's also spooked by it. He's telling me to cancel and go with another company.

Ok - so I'm not crazy then. At least not totally. Their quote was "The first day and next morning". I'm taking that as 2 days.

That's what I thought... I can understand if they did a checkout and I messed something up - but I haven't even spoken to the company. They made this requirement based on my sailing resume alone. ...

Maybe TMM is more difficult than others? I just wonder if the captain decides he wants to make some cash that he might stay aboard the whole week. That's an additional $1200 and kinda defeats the...

Most places take cards. Our strategy is to use cards wherever we can and then the cash we have on hand is plenty to cover the few that don't.

glass or poly lens

I'm really liking Costas. Now I'm deciding between glass and poly. Will glass shatter if something rang your bell? For this reason I'm leaning towards poly.

Sunglasses suggestions

I have always been a proponent of el-cheapo sunglasses, my theory being if I lost them or broke them my monetary loss was sub-$15. However, lately the sub-par quality has been getting on my nerves. ...
