Re: Is cruising the Bahamas with 8' draft possible?

Nope, never done that run! :D

But, lots of people here have.

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Hey, I heard you moved north. We are trying to get ready for a May departure on our next extended cruise and we are basically stripping the boat down to nothing for repairs and cleaning, so we're...

Re: Possible 27' Bluewater Boats

Tons of Cape Dory 27's around. If someone told me I was going to have to cross the Atlantic in a 27 footer, that's the one I would get.

Re: Dental and medical care while cruising.

I didn't have DAN insurance on my last foreign cruise, but I'll have it the next time.

Re: Florida is at it again

Anybody here, think for one second, that any Florida legislator or politician, would have any thoughts whatsoever, about boats and anchoring, one way or the other, without some deep pocket campaign...

Re: So where the heck do you shower???

Navy showers. Wet down. Lather up. Rinse off.

Re: Icw

On my last trip from the Mississippi gulf coast to the Florida Keys, I took the ICW as much as I could, all the way down, anchoring some nights and staying in marinas some nights, just poking along,...

Re: wall sized TV, on a sailboat

I used to have one on the salon wall (and a smaller one on the wall of the main stateroom). We used them to watch movies, but I took them both out when we got back from our cruise because I didn't...

Re: How to finance yourself while cruising fulltime?

Sometimes we think we're funnier than we are. You're right, the guy is just wanting some ideas from people who have been there and done that.

To me, the way to do it, is to move on the boat and...

Re: Florida is at it again

I know Marathon is a godsend for certain people, but I spent a month in Marathon in my boat, and to me, the Marathon mooring field was as close as you can come to a floating mobile home trailer park.

Re: Florida is at it again

Yeah, but the problem with any kind of legislation like this is that it can be introduced over and over and over again until it passes. They won't stop. Every time they lose, they identify why they...

Re: Travel to Cuba

That's true, but since Obama has been elected, not many people are being prosecuted. Ask Jay-Z and Beyonce. All you have to do is say it's a humanitarian mission, and pat a couple of kids on the...

Re: Watches

You have to set the lat lons into it and is a pain in the ass, to be truthful, especially if you are on a trip. I have to admit, that it is usually easier to just look at the tide tables :D.

Re: Night Vision

The only time I have ever been air sick in my life, was after looking through some stabilized binoculars for 30 minutes while flying as a passenger in a small plane. I've used them on boats and they...

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

If I could have found one I liked, that I could have afforded, I would be in one right now. I like them.

I think in ten years, it will be a lot easier to find a good used one. I don't know that...

Re: Pictures of your boat

I do remember your boat now, for sure, because of the dagger boards. I remember checking those out when y'all were at the Pass Harbor. :D

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

My recollection is that at the time, they had some orders for some boats that were going to be taller than 75 feet. Trinity was also in the process of moving their New Orleans operations to...

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

One big difference is we don't have a huge body of federal law, called camperly law (i.e. Admiralty Law) that governs a large body of legal issues on waterways and is a superseding authority in the...

Re: New to sailing in Maryland.

I had a 9.9 on my Cal 25 that I kept on the Severn and sailed all over the Chesapeake. It would have been fine with a 5 HP, although it would move along pretty good with that 9.9 wide open. :D

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

Probably so. As I said earlier, the people who set these kinds of federally paid for projects up, do it for a living, and usually cover all of those bases. These type things are submitted to the...

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

Yeah, but it's not because of the inherent cost of cruising getting higher. It's because of the inherent characteristic of government to always get bigger and more expensive.

Re: Real Life Coastal Cruising - First Time - Bent Rudder

And, the most important thing to know about charts and chart-plotters when cruising the coast of the Gulf of Mexico is to remember that these areas get chewed up by major hurricanes...
