Any useful online cruising guides?

I've been googling around for online cruising guides, but haven't been able to find anything too useful. I'm particularly interested in the Northeast US, but also the southeast coast and Caribbean. ...

My 'big' boat is in winter storage at the Mill Dam marina. Is that the one you mean? I think there are at least 2 Huntington marinas.

What kind of boat is she?

Battered by Battens

Battens are one of those things that professional boat builders take for granted, I think. They've seen them since their first apprentice days, know what they look like, their different sizes, which...

The Grid

So what is a lofting board for? For lofting, of course.

Lofting is the process of blowing up the relatively small-scale plans you get from your naval architect (in my case, from William Atkin),...

Yes, the boat is only 10' long. I made the lofting board 13' so I could use 12' battens on the sheer line, etc.
