Re: Finally! A boat-sized computer

I bought a Gigabyte BRIX a couple of weeks ago for use on the boat and am pretty impressed with the computing power, noise and energy consumption

Re: Caribbean Passages - short clips from Zanshin

The first soundtrack was good, but turned out to be copyrighted and I couldn't use it; so I deleted the video and put this soundtrack on, played by a band I know in France called "Sky Dog" which I...

Re: ISAF Personal Sea Survival Course - FUN!

pjs1554 - thanks for the kind words. I've spent the past couple of days reading up on how to make videos and am amazed at how complex the matter, when done correctly, really is. I'm sure that I'll be...

Re: ISAF Personal Sea Survival Course - FUN!

The ISAF is international, and there are all sorts of places where you can take the seminar. Most of the venues won't have a full hall for fires, or a simulation chamber for leaks and it is unlikely...

Re: Martinique: Sail North or South?

I can recommend Dominica (Portsmouth anchorage with trips ashore from there) for a couple of days and then to the Saintes (it is only a couple of hours sail on a beam reach); both destinations are...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Jongleur - another hint and/or picture is in order. I don't have a clue and can't find anything in the pictures to assist, but I don't know that sailing area so perhaps there are (almost) sufficient...

Re: Safety at Sea and North U Seminars

I recommend taking a "Safety at Sea" course for anyone leaving the dock - even if parts of the training might seem overkill the skills learned might come in handy some day. I was lucky enough to...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Do not start over, that would be a first in this thread. Just add hints or more pictures. I, for one, am at a complete loss and don't have the foggiest; but others might.

Re: Storing on the Hard?

I always store my boat on the hard, it lessens the chances of it sinking while unattended and certainly prevents bottom growth while letting the hull dry out. Locks on boats are rather ineffective in...

Re: Anyone Cruising The BVI's...

The stretch from the North Sound exit to Cooper or The Baths is, for me, always the fastest run in the BVI. Particularly off Savannah Bay where the winds funnel and give a thrilling ride for those...

Re: 12 volt refrigertation

Your choices of heat sink might be limited, as using a keel-cooler will involve a through-hull and that means a pricey haul-out which you might not have planned; but if you don't mind hauling out...

Re: Looking for a source of (first-aid) Medical Supplies

I opened up my peli case quite often - since I kept oft used bandages and other junk in there as well; so it must have been the moist air that I let in that triggered the problems. I also kept saline...
