Re: Prindle 19, am I being foolish as my first boat?

Looks like the Prindle 19 is a pretty quick racing boat. If you're ambitious and start out in less wind, especially with 2-3 people you should be able to figure it out. The difference that matters...

Re: St. Thomas & St John worth visiting by boat when in the BVI?

Oddly they didn't ask about money. We were in cruisers clothes and disgustingly sweaty from wandering all over town to try to find the office. All they seemed to care about was that we wouldn't work....

Re: St. Thomas & St John worth visiting by boat when in the BVI?

Nope. You can go to Road Town and request an extension for up to 6 months near the end of your 30 days. Be prepared to spend half the day sitting in the Immigration Office to do it (Immigration &...

Re: St. Thomas & St John worth visiting by boat when in the BVI?

We just spent about a month between St John & St Thomas. Stick to St John. We enjoyed bits of St Thomas but I wouldn't bother on a charter.

As per FarCry: Maho, Francis, Leinster, Lameshure, Salt...

Re: Anybody ever go too big?

What do you want a bigger boat for (not being snarky, just thinking that bigger for the sake of bigger might not make you happier)? My HR 34 has a ton more storage than a lot of 34s and still has 2...

Re: Dogs and foreign ports

It's often a pain but it varies dramatically by country. Lots of countries in the Caribbean now want you to apply in advance for an import permit for the dog instead of just showing up with generic...

Re: Can We Bareboat Charter in BVI's?

I just spent 2 months eating what I could buy (and carry back to the boat) in the BVIs. You'll be fine. Bobby's in Cane Garden Bay is a good mid-trip stock up. You can also get good groceries in...

Re: Can We Bareboat Charter in BVI's?

There's a better market in Gun Creek (Buck's) and a free hourly ferry from Bitter End if you have the time. Takes a little more time but we got some nice bacon wrapped tenderloins & bone-in pork...

Re: Can We Bareboat Charter in BVI's?

That was still true a few weeks ago and the staff at Neptune's didn't say anything about putting in any when we asked.

And if you haven't been in a while, the channel at Anegada has been moved....

Re: Anyone Cruising The BVI's...

Well, that is almost 80' of waterline ;)

Glad you're getting some good wind, the forecasts weren't calling for much.

We're here hanging out in the Virgin Gorda North Sound today, possibly heading to Anegada tomorrow. Outbound (s/v Hippocampus) should be around somewhere too though he may be out of internet range....

Re: Bad news for Bay Moorings boaters!

Re: Spinlock Tether Recommendation

Make sure to try out the hooks yourself. I find the Spinlock ones terribly difficult to work with one hand but other people love them.

Re: Iridium GO!

Re: Kids or cruising first?

Re: Charting a Course

It depends on the chart (specifically, the projection). I have a North Atlantic passage planning chart that has a conical projection (IMRAY 100). On that chart straight lines are great circle routes....

Re: Bad news for Bay Moorings boaters!

I'm sorry but you'll find a marina dominated by sailors, so much so that the company that owns the place laments that it doesn't make as much $ as their powerboat-filled marinas :) They did let the...

The previous model (HR31 built from 1992-2009 (http://www.hallberg-rassy.com/hr31/hr31.shtml)) had a closed transom and a more overhang at the bow.

Re: Boat features list

TQA's suggestion to list ESSENTIAL DESIRABLE CONTRA INDICATIONS is ideal but don't be scared to look at boats that aren't what you thought you wanted. I "needed" at least 100 gals of water, no...

Re: What is the smallest dinghy with a cabin?

The previous owner of my boat and his wife had a Wayfarer first. They regularly camped out on it with a tarp for a roof.

One morning she woke up to find a large snake on the other side of the tarp...

Re: Sailing the Boat

Has anyone tried a garden sprayer to rinse out a (thick double) dog's coat? I'm wondering if a solar shower might work better for that even though it would use a bit more water.
