Re: East Coast Marina or Mooring

Brunswick Landing Marina in Georgia. We spent last hurricane season there and met a great bunch of cruisers. Floating docks in excellent condition. Relatively safe from hurricanes. Free laundry...

Re: Golf of Mexico video cruising reports

It really isn't hard, but does take planning. Pick up a Waterway Guide and Skipper Bob's for the area. We do the ICW from Galveston to Pensacola, on the way to the Keys and Bahamas. It's a fun...

Re: Tallyho: the hunt is on

If you find yourself in the Galveston area, look us up at Harborwalk Marina. http://www.harborwalk.com/amenities/marina/ I'll buy you a beer at Slappy's. The marina here is nice and quiet. The...

Re: New Rates for Ezuma Land and Sea Park

To clarify - that is $20.00 up to 39'11". So a five dollar bump for us. That isn't unreasonable, but thanks for posting this.

Re: Concussions

Get well soon Brian! We saw you in Boot Key on Easter weekend. You looked as handsome as ever. Must have been before you bumped your head? We are heading back your way next year. Get a new boat...

Re: True condition after 30 years

We bought our 1982 Hunter 36 5 years ago for $20K. I did my own survey and have never regretted it. We spent 8K for haulout, bottom job, new rudder, new cutlass bearing, new thru-hulls, new...

Re: When to go Maine to Bahamas

Check your insurance. There was a fleet of boats anchored at Cumberland Island (Ga.), waiting until Nov. 1 to proceed south. Many were from Canada, so they had come a long distance by then.

Re: Picking a marina N FL- Gulf or Atlantic?

Check out Brunswick Landing Marina in Georgia. A nice area. We spent 4 months there last hurricane season. It's a sailboat friendly area, with plenty to see and do. The marina is nice, clean, and...

Re: Overnight Anchoring

I'll add a note here. In bad weather with high winds, in a crowded anchorage -

Turn on cabin lights, or deck lighting would be good too. We were in Green Turtle (Bahamas) with gale force winds...

Re: I would love to sail from Miami to Colombia

That is a nice sail. I did it a few years ago with a friend on his catamaran. Hopefully you can find a ride.

Cartagena is an interesting place.

Re: Sail up to reduce rolling?

Yes it helps. Still sucks....just not as bad as with no sail up in those conditions.

Re: Which weather/wind apps & sites are most accurate?

Windfinder has been accurate for us (most of the time) during our 19 months of cruising. I do look at passage weather and download Ugrib files. If these all vary, listen to the little voice that...

Re: Yanmar diesel fuel filter water separator

Get a diver to find the dropped part. Probably cost you $50-$75.00. Personally, I second getting a Racor, and get rid of the water separator.

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon

I certainly don't disagree. We aren't set up for long passages. Besides no AP, we don't have an EPIRB, life raft, or SSB. On cruising comforts....no windlass or davits either. We're just...

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon

We do 2 hours on, 2 hours off. Mostly we just get a break from steering and try to get comfortable. Sometimes a cat-nap. With an AP, I'm sure we could extend the shifts. I'll add an AP in Texas,...

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon

It really is hard work, for us at least. We're on a 36' Hunter with no auto-pilot, no radar, no AIS. We are also over 60. Being 30 years younger might be of help.

We usually don't get any...

Re: Anyone in Boot Key?

Maybe for a year or two. We'll see. For now, it will be great to be closer to our son and my wife's sister.

The boat is due some work. Maybe even some upgrades.....maybe even an autopilot. ...
