Re: Boat Trucking from Northeast Coast to Great Lakes

If the boat is ready you can easily do the canal in a week from Waterford to Buffalo. Lots of daylight this time of the year. There are a few spots where you can leave the boat if needed. There...

Re: Looking for a good - easy to access - well priced marina in Georgia -

On the hard, St Marys is your best bet. Not Langs but the other marina there (Name escapes me right now). In the water, Brunswick Marina will beat all others , many Bahamas cruisers store there in...

Re: Securing Dinghy on Davits with Motor

Get four ratchet straps. Two vertical lift tight to davits, two athwartships to prevent side to side movement. There should be absolutely no play. I do it all the time with a 10'06" RIB with a 15...

Re: CS36 Merlin Model Comparison

The Volvo 2000 series were the worst engines Volvo put out. A quick search will tell you all you want to know.

Re: Anchorage south of St Augustine.

The best (and only) anchorage in Cape Canaveral is just west of the lock in the Banana River. Anchor north or south of the west lock entrance. The north anchorage is better.

As for the Indian...

Re: CS36 Merlin Model Comparison

Here's mine. Bought her in 1988, still have her. Hull number 36, Hydrokeel. Been south a few times but she stays in Lake Ontario now. A great boat. Got rid of the Volvo 2003 after the first trip...

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

You might be right. I've been just anchoring south of Memorial Bridge and moving on in the morning. Been doing that for many years. Nothing much to attract me to the place. I do like that little...

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

Actually Daytona is not a good stop on the Waterway. I only stop there because it's between St. Augustine and Titusville. There's not much there. No laundry, Publix, liquor store convenient to...

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

I have never seen many boats on the Titusville moorings. It's good holding in that area, you always lie to the wind and you can anchor just north of the field or east of it on the east side of the...

Re: Dingy on davits

Like all open questions the reply is "it depends". I cruise the Bahamas and have carried a RIB and 15 hp on my arch (Ben 393) without any problem. Before that I carried the same on davits on my...

Re: Stainless polish for use in the sun

Another vote for Spotless Stainless. I might try the tip re plastic bags because keeping it wet takes a lot of effort. They used to say spray it with water, now they say keep applying. How does...

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

Love the NY State canal System from the days when it was all free. Now it's still a bargain but in case you guys aren't aware of it - it's winter in the northern hemisphere!!!

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

I've been cruising since 1990 and there were moorings in Vero then. They were $5 a night. I think they're up to $14 a night now. The staff are very cruiser friendly, free wifi, and there's a free...

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

The moorings that the Park put in at Shroud Cay about four years ago is a prime example of a money grab. The bottom is all sand, no heads, no reefs to protect. The Park put a bunch of moorings...

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

Never found the anchorage in front of the town very pleasant. Too many boats, not enough swing room. We used to continue down the river and anchor between The South Beaufort Sandbar and the East...

Re: Cruising routes Abacos to the Exumas

The heads from Ship Channel to Fleeming are not an issue. Especially heading north. You can see them, have gone through a few time and with other boats drawing 6 1/2. This is the best route to...

Re: Great Harbor Bahamas

Musha is a private island but they do not own the waters around it. Somehow they got approval to deny anchoring in the very sheltered waters off the island.

Re: Great Harbor Bahamas

I was there last May. We anchored outside because we understood there's no anchoring inside. One 36 footer did anchor inside, might have been encroaching on the channel. Not much traffic there,...

Re: Catalina 30 Bahama bound

I made a few trips to the Bahamas in my CS36Merlin with a wing keel. The rudder is as deep as the keel. Never had a problem. The keel always hit first. :) Actually in the Bahamas you can read the...
