Just something to keep in mind once you get there: it's Colombia (http://www.latintimes.com/how-spell-colombia-country-colombians-tired-columbia-misspelling-167439). :)

Re: Is it getting more crowded out there?

Admiralty Bay. It is 30s outside, for the high. Envy is not even the right word. Last time we visited Admiralty Bay was about 8 years ago. Bare boating. Place was jam packed. Had to hunt for a...

Re: Sailing Toys! What should I put on my Christmas list?

All I want is a good sailing season with steady SE winds 10-15 kts, no hurricanes / storms, no heatwaves, in other words - perpetual sailing bliss. Yeah, I can live with that . . . :D

Re: Opinions needed on Marine Air (Dometic)

Re: Sailing in Near Gale Conditions

Well done James.

I came down on Sunday hoping for the winds to calm down ... it didn't. Rappahannock was not looking pretty, it seemed like there was just a bunch of short, choppy waves running...

Re: Fall sailing! Brrr

Yes, definitely another beautiful weekend. Sailed up the Rappahannock river and then enjoyed "flying" downwind. Nice temps and the water is not too cold yet.

Re: Bird nests in the boom

A piece of sponge works well for me. Easy to stuff it in, easy to get it out. Plus, it is cheap and easy to replace.

Re: Hypervent or Equivalent? - seeking condensation solution for under berths

Well, it is fairly easy - I just roll it up to access the storage below as the springs are connected to form a sheet of sorts. On the other hand, if I had to do it on a daily basis, I probably would...

I have been using this Froli Sleep Systems by Nickle Atlantic, LLC (http://www.frolisleepsystems.com) and condensation has never been an issue. More comfortable rest comes as an extra bonus.

Re: Camera recommendations

+1 for Panasonic TS3 (or newer models). Waterproof, shockproof, fairly slim and takes decent pictures. dpreview.com has a fairly detailed write-up. Had mine for 3+ years. No problems whatsoever.
