Re: possible to buy a seaworthy sailboat under $20000 that requires very little fix?

Re: Liveaboard woman alone

Re: Liveaboard woman alone

I guess it's a matter of perspective. There's more than going to Oriental, especially as one builds confidence with staying out longer. Down to Beaufort/Morehead City, then some open water sailing to...

Re: Liveaboard woman alone

Barring some physical disability, of course you can do it. The real question is making sure you know what you really want to do (and will do). Because that will do the most to decide you on a boat.

Re: Overnight Anchoring

You can always get some deck level lights, like the solar powered sidewalk lights. Most of them aren't going to be looking 40 feet up in the air for anchor lights.

Re: schucker 430 Mobile Bay to Rock Port,Tx.

If you're doing the Ditch, go through Lake Borgne to the canal, rather than through Lake Pontchartrain (unless you want to go there). You'll have a set of locks to traverse to get to the Mississippi...

Re: Completed second solo Delaware Circumnavigation

Nice trip.

I also use 20 min catnaps on my overnights, spacing them so I'm in between inlets. Has worked well, so far (fortunately I have an internal alarm and I usually get to my destination with...
