"Requires" lithium AA's? That's a bunch of nonsense. Get a "heavy duty" alkaline, or oxyride to put in.. it'll work fine, especially the oxyride. I would ideally use NiMH rechargables, as they are...

Ugh.. I'm really not looking forward to these bugs.. I've not yet had the joy of meeting one, and to be honest I hope I don't. It's enough to know they exist.

Sounds great -- wish I could join. I enjoyed sailing about the islands while I lived in Ohio. The Great Lakes islands (Lake Erie included) are too often overlooked. I unfortunately never made it to...

Although quite dubious as a company (don't install weatherbug), weatherbug has lots of land based sites that records 120 days of hourly observation. Could be useful.

Being from SE Alaska, your no stranger to cloudy skies. If so, I think Cleveland fits your bill nicely. If you like snow, live in the snowbelt. You get Lake Erie for 7-8 months of sailing, and you...

Hey - you could always go "Green" and sail your boat north or south. Extreme heat or cold will kill'em. It's free; no chemicals, no mess, and an excuse to go sailing. I think I win this argument. ;)

In reference to the fuel tankage, many boats will err on the side of having too little for a large crossing. Bigger tanks means less storage space and more weight. When they go out for a longer...
